Barry Switzer Wants Teams to Lose Properly

Bear with me here — I’m still trying to get my hands around this. As if it wasn’t bad enough that Switzer used to beat opponents at Oklahoma like Scott Kazmir does the Red Sox, now he’s trying to tell us all what the proper way to lose is. Because apparently whatever North Texas did against Oklahoma two weekends ago didn’t cut it. From Chris Dufresne of the LA Times, who thinks the Big East is the second best conference in the country, and thus should probably stick to reproducing quotes:

Quote of the year so far comes from former Oklahoma coach Barry Switzer, upset that North Texas kept passing the ball during a 79-10 loss to the Sooners on Sept. 1: “They had no game plan for losing. . . . Because when you can’t win a game, you need to run the clock, don’t let it stop, don’t throw passes incomplete . . . get the game over with, get on the bus and go home.”

What, like North Texas shouldn’t be allowed to work on their passing game just because they’re getting their asses kicked? Sorry the Mean Green didn’t comply with your wishes, Barry. Maybe you should give a seminar to all underdogs in non-conference games. See how that speech would’ve worked with Appalachian State.
