Football Coach Doubles As Political Wonk

It has become somewhat of a tradition for David Cutcliffe to start his Tuesday press conference with a prolonged lighthearted quip or engage with the media mob in a topic other than football. He chided reporters for the impressive arsenal of digital recorders and iPods with microphones in front of him one week and expressed his literal distaste for yellow jackets before Duke played Georgia Tech.

This week, Cutcliffe began with a political statement.

“If we win, there is certain to be an Atlantic Coast crisis in the next six months,” he said.

Pause.

“Y’all don’t get it. I don’t believe it!” he said jokingly. “Do y’all not watch the news, the last days in politics? Anybody pay attention to what’s going on? Anybody know what Joe Biden’s quote was? Good gracious guys, you have your heads buried in the sand. Never mind, you won’t get what I just said.”
