Tom O'Brien's Champs Sports Bowl Pregame Speech

In a major coup, The Smoking Musket has obtained the pregame speech Tom O'Brien is prepared to give his team at tomorrow's Champs Sports Bowl. In fact he agreed to personally type his speech into a post for us. What a nice guy to reveal his speech exclusively to us. One would think we almost forced him to do it.

I'm not saying a felony was committed, but we got it. Here is what he wrote...
  • Begin pacing the room to build-up the tension/anticipation and drama - BRILLIANT IDEA! - I'm so smart, but don't say that b/c you'll look like an idiot...
  • Pause in the middle of the room clap your hands and begin your totally awesome speech...

Hello!

How about our time in Orlando? I guess that is why they call it The Magic Kingdom...

You boys already know this, but I consider myself a great football coach. I have also thought of myself as bit of a one-man wolfpack. That is the main reason I left BC to coach here at State. I just knew this was a place for me as a one-man wolfpack. So there...there was now more than one person in my wolfpack...I was alone at first in my pack then I became head coach at NC State and others joined my wolfpack. Then a few months few weeks ago when we played Maryland, I thought, "Wait a hot second (great use of slang, I'm so smart) could it be? We are going to play for the ACC Championship in front of 10's of people." And then you idiots went out and lost to Maryland. Now, I am yet again a one-man wolfpack because I don't associate with losers. Tom O'Brien is a winner and only allows winners in his wolfpack. However, you have the opportunity to run around the field in Vegas, in Orlando to try and win the game. So tonight, you try to rejoin my wolfpack...Let's go... (turn and run out the door)

  • If they refuse to follow me I will play the game by myself because Tom O'Brien is a winner
