(Well, we're clearly bumping this. -- AJ)
Ladies and gentlemen... I've traveled over half our state to be here tonight. I couldn't get away sooner because my recruiting pipeline was coming in at New England and I had to see about it. That pipeline is now flowing at two players a year and it's getting me an income of five thousand dollars a week. I have two others out recruiting and I have sixteen in my coaching tree. So, ladies and gentlemen... if I say I'm a football man you will agree. You have a great chance here, but bear in mind, you can lose it all if you're not careful. Out of all men that beg for a chance to sell you victories, maybe one in twenty will be footballmen; the rest will be speculators-that's men trying to get between you and the footballmen-to get some of the wins that ought by rights come to you. Even if you find one that has charisma, and means to win, he'll maybe know nothing about winning and he'll have to hire out the coordinators on contract, and then you're depending on a coordinator that's trying to rush the job through so he can get another contract just as quick as he can. This is... the way that this works.
I do my own playcalling and the men that work for me, work for me and they are men I know. I make it my business to be there and see to their work. I don't lose my runningbacks in the hole and spend months fishing for them; I don't botch the offseason workout and let Rhabdo get in the urine and ruin the whole team. I'm a family man- I run a family business. This is my son and my partner, B.W. Ferentz.
We offer you the bond of family that very few footballmen can understand. I'm fixed like no other coach in this field and that's because my New England pipeline has just come in. I have a string of high school quarterbacks all ready to become defensive linemen. I can load a safety on a bus and have him playing tight end in a week. I have NFL GM connections so I can get seniors to the NFL; such things go by friendship in a rush like this. And this is why I can guarantee to start winning and put up the cash to back my word. I assure you, whatever the others promise to do, when it comes to the showdown in Indianapolis, they won't be there...
We expect no further comment at this time.
