New Mexico football coach Mike Locksley told the media of his rather measured approach to this week’s game.
(UNM coach seems to know all about blowing loads)
“It’s your job as a coach to manage the rivalry throughout the course of the week so that it’s not played in the paper, so you don’t shoot your load too early because you want to have your guys peaking right at kickoff time.” (11:45 into video - right sidebar of site)
Yea, I got a chuckle out of that one. But the quip isn’t the best part of the clip.
The truly uproarious part for me is the absolute deadpan delivery of Locksley. And even better, the muted media reax. Then again, if I was on the Lobos football beat, I’d probably need a few
seconds minutes hours days years to take it all in.
And contrary to what you might think, the Lobos have New Mexico State this week. Not USC. (Knuckle-dragging LCD duly noted.)
