Well, we can now quit using the phrase “I’m not going to be the Alabama coach” when referring to football coaches who say one thing and do another.
But we haven’t yet decided whether to replace it with “that’s all speculation and hype” or “it’s business as usual” or “all of those things are manufactured” or “we’re busy at work trying to build the team strong” or “all of those other things are a figment of other peoples’ imagination.”
Jack Del Rio used each of those phrases when talking to the Jacksonville media on Tuesday as he walked to work for an ownership meeting that could determine his future with the team.
And he uttered those words with the distinct demeanor of a cat that has swallowed a contract offer from USC printed on canary yellow paper.
Don’t take our word for it. Watch the video from FirstCoastNews.com, and then drop your own thoughts as to whether Del Rio is full of something other than water.
