Games are won on the practice field, and Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury will do whatever it takes to make sure that his players are focused during practices.
The Red Raiders coach made an appearance on The Dan LeBatard Show with Stugotz (audio starts around 10:40) on Wednesday. As Kingsbury is known to do, he made some interesting comments.
"I'll pretty much sell my soul to have a good practice," Kingsbury said. "I'm not above anything."
That may sound like a coach exaggerating, but as it turns out, he will literally do just about anything. Under Kevin Sumlin at the University of Houston, where Kingsbury was an assistant coach from 2008 to 2011, the Cougars were rewarded for good practices.
Here's what Kingsbury had to say about how Houston used to motivate players at practice:
When we were at the University of Houston, we brought an ice cream truck and filled it with some girls from, like, one of the clubs, like the bottle girls. And that was impressive. That was a good practice.
Like the bottle service. The cute bottle service girls. In Houston, you can do that. You can't do that in Lubbock, there's no bottle service in Lubbock.
Thanks for sharing, coach.
