Lettermen - Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury went on ESPN’s “Highly Questionable” Wednesday to talk about pretty much everything except football. Dan Le Batard and Bomani Jones were able to squeeze in one or two questions about football in the five-minute interview, but it was mostly par for the course as these things go. Here are some highlights:
On being mistaken for Ryan Gosling: “I’ll take that one. You get an A-list celebrity you take that compliment.”
On filming The Notebook: “Stay focused. Stay within the script. Not getting carried away with the emotion.”
On his “game” compared to Johnny Manziel’s: “I would hope I’ve had a lot more practice than him.”
On being too sexy: “I just try to be myself. Dress like I want to dress, act like I want to act. As long as you’re winning games the rest will take care of itself.”
On hitting on married moms: “It can get weird. I stop at that point. You just have fun, it’s obviously not going anywhere.”
On his wildest interaction with a female fan: “That would be signing some cleavage.”
At this point I honestly feel like it’s just a matter of time before we find out Kliff Kingsbury like killed a hooker and dumped her in a trash can in Lubbock last year. That he’s a serial killer by night that shoots stray cats in the head and feeds them to ATM machines. That he’s got a dungeon full of dead bodies and skin suits or something. I mean there’s just no way somebody can be this perfect. This cool, calm, collected, funny. This much of a stud. No I don’t want to date him. I just want to be him.
Sidenote, I wonder what you do when you’re a recruit and you wake up and head downstairs in the morning and Kliff is sitting shirtless at your table drinking milk out of the carton while your mom cooks eggs wearing his Tech T-shirt from the day before. Do you get mad or do you sign immediately?
