Pac-12 teleconference interrupted by Rush Limbaugh show

The Pac-12 football coaches teleconference returned to action this Tuesday ahead of the beginning of the college football season. Unfortunately, a feed of Rush Limbaugh’s radio show cut in while Oregon State coach Mike Riley was speaking, leading to an awkward, confusing minute.

Rush LimbaughRiley was asked whether any other position took him as long to name a starter besides quarterback (he named Sean Mannion the starter over Cody Vaz), and that’s when the Limbaugh feed cut in.
