Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury's youthful exuberance was one of the reasons that attracted the Red Raiders to him while they were looking for a coach late last year.
Also his ability to relate to the 18-to-22-year-olds he was coaching was an added benefit.
That benefit was put on display through a note Kingsbury left his players as they prepared to leave campus for the rest of the month.
Here’s what Kingsbury wrote:
“We advise you to be active over the break as you will need to be ready to work once June rolls around. Sitting at the house playing COD/2K13/Madden against 12 year olds online doesn’t suffice as activity even if you claim to ‘wreck shop’.”
There is so much to love about this letter it’s hard to put it all into words. In short, video games (in case you didn’t understand the abbreviations) are not a physical activity for Texas Tech football players.
The letter was tweeted out by offensive lineman Alfredo Morales and I’m guessing he got as big a kick out of it as we did.
Go on Kingsbury, keep doing what you do.
Here's a reenactment of Kingsbury's offseason pep talk to some of his players:
