WATCH: Illinois OC Rod Smith has some fun 'interviewing' QB Brandon Peters
College football players and coaches have to spend a lot of time with the media. It’s a few times a week some of the top athletes and coaches spend around cameras, microphones and voice recorders.
So, Illinois offensive coordinat Rod Smith decided to liven things up a bit. When Illinois players and coaches met with the media on Monday, Smith grabbed a microphone and raced over to starting quarterback Brandon Peters. He had one important question to ask.
Smith wanted to know how Peters was able to perform so well and overcome his offensive coordinator’s bad play-calling style in Saturday’s game against UConn. The Illini posted a 31-23 win.
Peters threw four touchdown passes in the win, but was sure to give proper kudos to his offensive coordinator. It’s still too early to throw some playful jabs at Smith, I guess.
