VIDEO: John L. Smith prank calls reporter from press conference
Arkansas coach John L. Smith started his Monday press conference early, before one of the usual Razorback reporters had arrived. So, naturally, he rang him up personally to let him know what he was missing.
It's no secret that covering a football team coached by John L. Smith is not like covering teams coached by, well, anyone else.
The latest evidence comes from the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. With Smith starting his Monday press conference about 10 minutes early, reporter Nate Allen hadn't arrived yet. So Smith decided to have a little fun, calling Allen to let him know he'd better hurry up:
Kudos to Allen for giving almost as good as he got, reminding Smith that not every recent Hog practice had ended on time:
It's too soon to say if bringing Smith back on board was the best thing for Arkansas football. But is it the best thing for college football, generally speaking? Without question.
