One time, [former SMU assistant] Johnny Ringo and I were on the road when I was at SMU. We had home visits at 4:30 p.m., 6:30 p.m. and then 8:30 p.m. I swear to goodness, I had no idea we ate at all three places. We're driving down 635 in Dallas, and I told Coach Ringo, 'I have to undo my pants.' I didn't realize I ate so much because I was too busy trying to impress momma. If you go in there and you don't eat, you're in trouble. You can't say no. You eat.That's Baylor defensive coordinator Phil Bennett in Jeremy Crabtree's collection of weird recruiting stories. One can't exactly expect to land a commitment during an in-home visit while merely nibbling at the meal the player's mother has made. And now you know why all coaches eventually sprout polo paunch. That and the 167-hour work weeks.
