On today's Pardon My Take... SAM PITTMAN! The Head Coach of Arkansas Football joined Mr. Cat and Mr. Commenter today to discuss the Razorbacks' season so far, some of his best recruiting stories, his "YESSIRRR" chant, and much more. Coach Pittman is also known for blocking people on Twitter, notably SEC football fans who send him mean things. He got into the details of that on today's show:
Mr. Cat: Do you know exactly why you had Arkansas football blocked on Twitter when you got the job?
Sam Pittman: Oh yeah, I'm 100% sure why I did, because whenever I left, I was the O-Line Coach, I don't know what the big deal was, but when I left, the ole' fans weren't too kind to me and I thought, "Well, hell, I'll just block them out and I won't have to worry about it. So, that's the truth. And if I get something on Twitter I don't like, I block them now. You can be negative to me once, but twice? Shame on me.
Mr. Cat: Yeah, we actually have a co-worker who's a Mississippi State fan, who you have blocked on Twitter. He asked me to ask you to unblock him.
Sam Pittman: Nah, I'm not going to do it.
Mr. Cat: I love it, I respect your decision.
Mr. Commenter: That's an offensive line coach right there. Well also, the fact that Brandon's asking to be unblocked...
Sam Pittman: Let me say this, he might be a wonderful person and a wonderful man, but I'm going to do it.
Mr. Cat: Yeah, I respect your decision. I just had to ask for him, because he's been asking me all week, "When you talk to Coach Pittman, ask him why I'm blocked," he knows why. He knows why he's blocked.
Sam Pittman: He knows why.
Sorry, Brandon, but that's the result of saying negative things to Coach Pittman on Twitter. Arkansas is having an awesome start to this football season, currently 3-0 and the No. 16 team in the country. Woo Pig Sooie.
