VIDEO: Travis Ford doesn’t respect UT-Arlington

Dec 24, 2012, 2:24 PM EST

Travis Ford

I hate all of those interviews with coaches and/or players that come during a game.

Do you really think a coach is going to say something worthwhile in the middle of a game? It’s tough enough to get them to step outside the realm of coachspeak when they’re at a bar, three Miller Lites deep and talking off the record.

When their mind is centered solely on adjustments they need to make at halftime in order to win a game, you think anything worthwhile is going to come out of their mouth?

Probably not.

Which is why the only time halftime interviews mean anything is when someone says something outlandish. Like Travis Ford, who, at halftime of Oklahoma State’s win over UT-Arlington, decided it was a good time to praise the good folks running the UT-San Antonio program:

Now, I would just chalk this up as a mistake. There are a lot of UT-(name of a city) programs out there, and I’ll admit that, from time-to-time, I can get confused myself.

But in his postgame interview, Ford once again referred to UT-Arlington as UT-San Antonio:

It’s official: Travis Ford has no clue who he played on Saturday.
