Kevin Damn Speechifying. Coach spoke at the Touchdown Club of Houston recently, and his candor and focus was on display as usual as he continues to navigate the post-Manziel waters. Some quips:
"I'm not sure anyone knows we still have a football team, because every question is about Johnny Manziel. That's OK. Every question I get, I write it down and tell the players, 'Listen to this.' It's more motivation for us.''
"A question I hear a lot is, 'Who's going to be your quarterback?' '' Sumlin said. "We'll figure it out. If you came here for the answer, you can leave now. I'm not telling you."
Sumlin then brought out Larry Jackson, who forced all the reporters in the front room to do typing drills on their phones until they were consistently proficient and flawless at 60 words per minute.
Um, yeah, so about that non-con scheduling...[/kicks dirt]. We'll be playing Western Carolina in 2015. Hint: that's not the one with the cool red blob as a mascot. BONUS INFO: "Catamount" is just a fancified British word for "cougar" as it turns out.
Do you ever get tired of conference realignment speculation? No? Good. Here's an interesting look from the Mizzou gang at what might have happened if the Tigers had gone to the B1G instead of Nebraska. It's a crazy world. Somebody ought to sell tickets.
PUT THAT MAN IN THE BROADCAST BOOTH. Once he's done being a football player, of course.
