Mountain West: Wyoming Showstopper

By Jason Owens - July 18, 2006

Wyoming head coach Joe Glenn, who didn't need a microphone to be heard during his press conference, was clearly not happy about being picked last in the preseason media poll.

"I see where you've all got us picked," Glenn exclaimed to the media in his opening statement. "There's no greater motivation than to try to prove somebody wrong. There's no way, if you knew our personnel, you could pick us dead last."

But that wasn't the end of it. If the coaching gig doesn't work out for Glenn, he's got a bright future in broadcasting. He took the entire allotted time of 10 minutes making his opening statement and kept the media corps laughing the entire time. He also belted out the quote of the day when addressing questions about Wyoming's kicking game and departure of last year's punter.

"Our punter only had one bad day last year -- Saturday."

In a conference full of colorful, talkative coaches, Glenn takes the prize. And that's saying a lot with Air Force's Fisher DeBerry in the mix.
