I got one guy that writes me an email — when we go on the road, we wear white uniforms, which is by rule, we have to wear the white uniform. He says, ‘You’ve worn white.

I really appreciate you understanding the rules of college football.’ That’s the mindset of what I deal with.

That's the kind of guy who calls into PAAAWWWLLL's show. I guarantee it.
