Oregon State's Mike Riley, left, and Texas Christian's Gary Patterson were on a conference call Tuesday to promote the Sept. 4 game between their teams in Cowboys Stadium in Arlington. As one could expect, the conversation was somewhere south of dull.
About halfway through a female caller came on the line and identified herself as "Amy Cummings with Rawhide Nation Sports Blog."
"Amy" made the most of her 30 seconds, getting in several questions ranging from Pete Rose to Lindsay Lohan. Listen to the exchange:
of the Oregonian has it spelled out:
Blogger: "Hey, coaches. Uhh, coach Riley, whose team has the most arrests, you guys or the Oregon Ducks?"
Riley: "Has the most what?"
Riley: (Chuckles) "I don't know. I don't keep a tally of that."
Blogger: "All right. coach Patterson, will any of your players or cheerleaders be wearing ass-less chaps for the Cowboy Classic?"
Patterson: "I don't know that answer, either. I have a hard time just keeping track of my 105."
Blogger: "Coach Riley ... Pete Rose, in or out of the Hall of Fame?"
Riley: "You're asking me something I don't know anything about. I don't know what all goes into that or what's taken place."
Blogger: "All right. Coach Patterson, what are your thoughts on Lindsay Lohan getting out of jail early and entering a rehab clinic?"
Patterson: "Uhm ... still no answer."
Moderator: "Guess you're busy getting ready for football season, right coach?"
Patterson: "That's just it."
Moderator: "OK, do we have any other questions for any other callers?"
Operator: "We'll go next to John Warren with 1240 Joe Radio."
Warren: "Yeah, that's kind of interesting to follow up with ..."
