Mike "The Tank" Gundy makes a big splash in Morgantown - John Radcliff
Dana Holgorsen calls his old mentor to help fix the Air Raid offense and to get a win against Oklahoma State.
Scene: Thursday night in Dana Holgorsen's office. The coach calls his old mentor Mike Leach for some advice on how to beat Oklahoma State.
(the phone is picked up with the clank of metal on metal in the background)
Hey coach, it's Dana. What's that noise?
Oh, just teaching the new O line coach a few things about life and pirating.
Oh yeah, I remember those days. Still got the eye patch you gave me.
So what can I do for you?
Well, I'm having some trouble getting the offense going this year. To be honest, we've been doing a lot of running.
Running? You know there's a cure for that, right? Remember that night in TJ and going to the doctor the next day? Just go to the local Quick Care. They'll get you fixed up.
No coach, we've been running the ball a lot. Like more than we pass it.
.......Is this a joke? Did Mumme put you up to this?
No, I'm serious! We're playing Oklahoma State this weekend and we need to find a way to win before the natives get restless.
Oh, Gundy? Look, here's what we're going to do...
Meanwhile in Stillwater
...okay honey, good headset check.
Now Mike, don't forget what I told you about staying away from that Dana Holgorsen. He's always getting you in trouble. You promised Mike the Tank wasn't coming back anymore.
I know honey. Those days are behind me.
Call when you get there...
So by the time he figures out what's going on, it'll be too late.
Sounds like a plan, coach.
Friday night in Morgantown
Look Dana, I'm just not sure I can trust you. Besides, isn't that where all the fraternity houses are?
It's not a big town Mike. Everything's close. It'll just take a few minutes. Then I'll get you back to the hotel.
Later that night
Let's get him back to the hotel
Let's do it. And thanks coach. We shouldn't have any trouble winning now.
