“OK, how do they do it here?” Wilson asked as he took his seat in front of the media following a 28-3 loss at Penn State. “Do I pick a person, or do they just pull a lottery ticket?”
Someone from the media joked that everyone just yells over each other, to which Wilson quipped: “Yell over each other? Well, we’re not going to be doing that.”
So, instead, Wilson took it upon himself to conduct the interview, pointing to the reporters and asking each one for his/her name, and sometimes where they were from, before taking their questions.
It was a rare entertaining presser, one full of pointing and “What’s your names?”
My favorite part? That was this: “The gentlemen leaning in with the glasses, behind the guy with the checkered shirt.” Talk about specific!
Wilson, normally the assistant head coach and running backs coach, is serving as interim coach while Kyle Flood serves a three-game suspension.
