Among the highlights: “I’ve got a bunch of mama’s boys right now.”
“My wife — my wife! — can score more than two buckets on 11 shots because I know my wife will at least shot fake one time.”
“To me, when you’ve got a young team, it’s a lot like house training a puppy dog. You know what, when the dog does something wrong, bad dog. I’m not going to hit ‘em. I’m not going to swat ‘em, but bad dog, get on the treadmill.”
“(Guard) Marcus (Fillyaw) was absolutely awful, that’s about as PG-rated as I can say it. He was awful. Our guards are awful. Our three starting guards had one assist and and seven turnovers. They must think it’s a tax credit. It’s unbelievable how our starting guards played.”
I think “get on the treadmill” could be the new “get in your Prius.” I also think Tech and UVa need to keep this guy on their radar the next time they’re in need of a coach.
2. Andy caught up with some members of the 1946 Tech team that played in the Sun Bowl, one of whom called it “probably the most unique team in Tech history.”
3. Former players are coming out of the woodwork to criticize Redskins coach Mike Shanahan. Said Donovan McNabb: “Listen, I was benched for Rex Grossman. Well, Rex Grossman finished the season (1-2). That didn’t help nothing. And so, the whole thing about it is, sometimes you have to look in the mirror and look at yourself. Stop looking at everybody else. I don’t think he and Kyle Shanahan can do that. And I say that because they feel like what they’re calling should be run effectively.”
