An Arkansas fan who is also a fan of Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury couldn't take her conflict of fandom any longer. So she sent Kingsbury a breakup note and he responded.
The fan, identifying herself as Pam Robles, posted the letter she sent to Kingsbury to Reddit earlier in the week. She said she had to break up with Ryan Gosling's doppelganger for six reasons, the first being that he was too good looking.
"I love having you as arm candy, but I want you to be recognized for your coaching achievements and what you bring to the world as a person – your charitable work, your dedication to the team and the positivity you bring to Texas Tech," she wrote. "You are more than a good-looking face and a very hot body! Don't let anyone tell you otherwise."
The other reasons were that Robles is an introvert, she couldn't handle being a coach's wife, their kids would be too good looking, she likes X-Men, she's a Razorback fan and the real dealbreaker; she's married. (Robles actually listed her Arkansas fandom last.)
Included in the letter was a picture and a mix of songs from the 90s that she works out to including Boyz II Men's "I'll Make Love to You" and "No Diggity" by Blackstreet, which was the first song.
A spokesperson for Texas Tech confirmed to Yahoo Sports that the response Robles got from Kingsbury is real. Here it is:
"Pam, that was by far the best note I have received since taking this job. It breaks my heart that our romance has come to an end but I will always have a special place in my heart for you. BTW, love the mix tape. But definitely would've had "Pony" as the first song. Guns Up! - Kliff"
Robles has joked about their "relationship" previously.
Kingsbury has also admitted to flirting with the moms of recruits but this is on another awesome level. Kingsbury has had the opportunity to be a complete jerk about the attention that he gets about his looks but instead of acting like that, he's had fun with it.
Arkansas plays Texas Tech on September 13. Hopefully it won't be traumatic for Robles.
