Nebraska coach Bo Pelini responded sharply to criticism from Tommie Frazier on Monday after the former star quarterback called for the removal of the Cornhuskers' defensive coaching staff following Saturday's 41-21 home loss to UCLA.

"Since I came back here, I've embraced former players," Pelini said. "If he feels like that, then so be it. We don't need him. That's a shame.

"Until you've sat in this seat, until you've sat here and done it, anybody can have an opinion. It's easy to point fingers when you stand outside and throw stones. So I just take it for what it is."

Frazier -- the 1995 Heisman Trophy runner-up and one of the most beloved players in Nebraska history as a two-time national champion -- didn't hold back on Twitter after the Huskers surrendered an early 21-3 lead to the Bruins.

More importantly: Is this headline a tip of the cap to Bob Mould, Grant Hart, et al?
