Bobby Johnson was on his game this morning in his chat with the guys from Nashville sports station 104.5 FM.
At one point, Mark Howard asked Johnson: “How frustrating were the drops by the wide receivers?”
To which Bobby replied: “I enjoyed it.”
Which prompted this question from the former Titans tight end and noted satirist Frank Wycheck: “Bobby, how does it feel to lose a game?”
When asked what he thought about being listed as “Bobby Jones” in the game notes published by the Rice sports information department, Johnson said: “They were probably thinking of my golf game.”
Glad to see he’s still got his sense of humor.
He said two other things I found interesting.
First, he said Larry Smith would have to do something “pretty major” to lose his starting position, like suddenly cop a “bad attitude.” He cited Smith’s strong arm, saying, “He makes all the throws we want.” He also said Smith works hard and prepares well.
Also, Johnson said the C-USA officiating crew aided Rice last season in its up-tempo attack, which was highly successful in the first half. He said Rice had “three or four guys moving when the ball was snapped.”
