When meeting the press – unless you are talking about a very serious subject — it is helpful to smile. Nowhere is it written that the media need to smile back.
Arkansas Razorback football coach John L. Smith apparently thinks differently.
Take a look at his odd rant to reporters gathered for a press conference.
The fact that beat reporters covering the Arkansas football team didn’t smile might be a sign that they have too much invested in the fortunes of the team — or perhaps they just didn’t want to appear indifferent to Arkansas’s misfortunes.
The Razorbacks record so far is one win and two losses — including a 52-0 trouncing by Alabama last week and an overtime loss the week before to some school called “the University of Louisiana – Monroe.”
