Taking responsibility for your behavior

It's no secret that coaches can sometimes get caught up in the heat of the moment. Bo Pelini is no different.

During his first season as head coach at Nebraska, Coach Pelini "has drawn unwanted attention for his tirades against officials, assistant coaches and players."

But he's vowed to correct his behavior:

"That's something I've got to fix. I understand that. I'm a highly emotional guy. I've got to be careful. There's a difference between being animated and using some words you wish you didn't use. I'm not perfect by any means, and I understand that. What I try to do is evaluate what's happening with me and try to learn from it. I've got to be smarter."
