The fun with Charlie Strong continues from what was one of the most bizarre and laughable press conferences we’ve seen at Louisville in a long time. First, he refused to say he’ll be back at Louisville next season; then he challenged Louisville fans to be more like Big Blue Nation. (They can start by showering.) And just when we thought he was done giving us fodder for the day, Strong said he read a motivational text from Tom Crean to his team before the Rutgers game.
Just stop. It’s too much.
Who’s up for a game of #TextsFromTomCrean: Charlie Strong edition?
— “I’ve been thinking about Louisville winning the Big East Championship a lot. A whole lot.”
— “Enjoyed the Bieber concert in Yum last month. Can u get me tix to One Direction?”
— “I know you’re about to play Rutgers but did you see Christian Watford’s buzzer-beater last year? WOW”
— “Can you txt me Pitino’s number?”
— “Did you know I’m related to the Harbaugh brothers?”
— “Remind your boys that postseason games don’t matter. The magic is in the middle of the non-conference regular season schedule.”
— “Hey Joker, ask Cal if he’ll play me in Assembly Hall.”
