Remember last week I compared Alex Grinch to Scotty in the engine room on Star Trek.
He’s doing the grinding in August with the season approaching.
“Some guys believe in practice, some guys don’t,” Grinch said. “Every coach says they do (but) the fact is they don’t. We do. You earn the right to have confidence walking into the stadium on Saturday. Your logo’s not going to get it done.”
In 1992, Larry Smith said something similar and it was used as a reason to get rid of him.
“Names and logos don’t mean anything,” Smith said. “You don’t beat someone just because of your name and logo.”
The difference is Smith said it after a loss to Fresno State while Lincoln Riley (and Grinch) are in the honeymoon phase so the comment will go unnoticed.
