SchnellSpeak: 07.30.09

Finally, The Man They Call The Voice speaks. After his initial public outburst the other day, then several days of . . . nothing, I was frankly having withdrawal symptoms.

Headaches. Sweats. Numbness in my extremeties. Lower back pain. Neuritis. Neuralgia. Did I mention lower back pain?

Anyhow, I finally tracked down a bon mot that should hold us for another day or two. Thank heavens practice starts soon.

Asked whether his Florida Atlantic Fighting Owls could repeat their recent successes — they are the only Sun Belt team to win two consecutive bowl games — our Man At The Microphone was at his pontificatory best:

“Obviously we need to play with renewed determination, play with poise and confidence and execute to our ability. If we do that, I think we can start fast and finish strong.”

Start fast? Well, FAU opens at Nebraska and South Carolina. So, uh, well, we’ll see. Finish strong? The guy is 6-0 in bowl games.

And remains forever and always, The Best Quote Since Yogi.

    Underestimate the MAN at your peril, Nebraska and Ole Ball Coach. Prediction. The Schnell will win one of those games.
