Pelini taking wait and see approach w/Bubba

Husker fans wait for Bubba Starling's pending life changing decision -- and so does Bo Pelini.

As Husker fans sit and wait for Bubba Starling's pending life changing decision, so does Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini.

But Pelini definitely understands the magnitude of what the 18-year old is trying to decide on. Be a two sports athlete at a school like Nebraska or take millions of dollars of guaranteed money to play professional baseball.

"Obviously money plays a part of it, but at some point it comes down to what do you want to do," said Pelini. "Do you want to go to college and be a multi-sport athlete, or do you want to go pro?

"It's got to be where his heart is and what he wants to do. If he's making a decision any other way, he's probably making a mistake."

Starling has until August 16th to make a decision. Reports are the Kansas City Royals have offered anywhere from $6.2 to a $7 million dollar signing bonus.
