Most reporters cover a football coach who only wants to talk football and even then say as little as possible. Just think of how the other reporters envied Wes because for the past three years he got to cover a football coach who seemed to want to discuss everything but football. Wes never had to work hard - just turn on his tape reporter and the story wrote itself - minus those parts where Doolander cussed him. Now comes Butch Jones and Wes' quote machine dries up. Now he has to work to dig quotes and come up with interesting angles for what is essentially the same story day after day.
So, to make poor Wes feel better (or maybe worse) I offer up the following:
"We’re water and bamboo. That’s about all I can say. Bamboo sits there and you water it, and you water it, and you water it. It sits there and it doesn’t grow and it doesn’t grow and you water it and you keep watering it and nothing’s happening. If you don’t understand bamboo, you say it’s never going to grow. And then you come out and it goes ZHOOM! That’s what’s going to happen. I don’t know when that is."
That should say, "We're watering bamboo." Nonetheless, that's an all-time classic.

BUTCH IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. GO VOLS!
"Give him six" "We don't give a damn about the whole state of Alabama" "Grit N Grind"
Watch out Ryan!! Wes will claim you hijacked his thread!
It may be working now. Just took another gardener with an orange thumb.
Dooley knew the bamboo needed to be watered, he just didn't know HOW. Coach Jones seems to know how to water it.
I only ask him to stay out of threads that I start.
He never listens, anyway. And I'm not his boss, so I can't make him listen.

So why even ask? Seems like a waste of bytes if you ask me...
A man's got to have a code.
Very true, Omar Little. Very true.
Why would someone down vote that?
Gave you +2
