Lance Guidry may have one-upped himself.
The interim head coach at Western Kentucky delivered quite the fiery pregame speech before the Hilltoppers took on Central Michigan in the Little Caesar's Pizza Bowl.
Guidry began his speech by reminding his team how WKU was left out by the bowl committees last year. Guidry also didn't mind bringing up Willie Taggart, who recently left the team to take the South Florida job.
"Coach Taggart said he wanted to build a bully at WKU," Guidry said. "We are that bully tonight and we are standing on top of that damn hill! We are that badass, too. As I said before, let's go get our damn trophy!"
Unfortunately for WKU, a failed 4th-down conversion late resulted in a 24-21 loss. Check out the video below (though video quality makes him sound like a James Bond villain)
As for the previous time Guidry told his team to "go get our damn trophy?" It was two years ago, when the interim head coach Guidry led Miami (Ohio) to a win in the 2011 GoDaddy.com Bowl. Which speech do you think was better? (This one has the correct voice).
