Another thread got me reminiscing about the days when M*ch*g*n was Jim Tressel's personal whipping post, but was still coached by a worthy opponent in Lloyd "I don't take crap from sportscasters" Carr. Specifically, I was searching for a video of a halftime interview I'll never forget, which according to the one reference I could find out there in the interweb, was during the 2003 edition of "The Game."
And the one time that he didn't in front of a national audience was hilarious. In the 2003 game against OSU, Michigan ran out to a lead of something like 21-7 and got the ball at the very end of the first half on about their own 40. Carr ordered his guys to take a knee to kill the clock and get to halftime with a two-touchdown lead.
On live TV, Jack Arute grabs Carr for a quick halftime interview. The entire thing went like this:
ARUTE: With a two-touchdown lead, why not take a strike toward the end zone?
CARR: (caught totally off-guard, glares at Arute) Why in the hell would you ask me a stupid question like that?
ARUTE (unperturbed): With a two-touchdown lead, why not take a strike toward the end zone?
CARR: (glares at Arute some more, shakes his head, and walks off)
I'm not entirely certain it was the 2003 edition, because I could have sworn OSU was winning going into the half of whichever game I'm remembering, but the exchange above is exactly how I remember the conversation going... Arute sort of floundered off camera as Carr gave him the "you're a dumb@$$" look, and the guys in the booth kind of took it from there.
Anyone else remember this, and even better, know where we can find video evidence to enjoy?
