Has there ever been a man as thrilled as coach Mitchell to be named coach of the year? This clip of Sam on the Landry and Stellick(tricity) show from last week is just about the most painful thing in the world to listen to. Not exactly a morning person.
The only thing better is when they get him on a West coast trip, and he has to be awake at 5:05am Pacific to talk remedial hoops with the guy who traded Russ Courtnall for John Kordic. The phrase, "Come on, Guys..." has never sounded better. He ends this interview by saying: "I don't like you guys... you haven't figured that out yet?"
Atta boy, Sammy.
