Gary was asked about his team's new offense, and specifically the impact of first-year co-offensive coordinators Sonny Cumbie and Doug Meachem.
Gary said: "I have no idea. We played a Samford and now we played a Big 10 team."
Those two sentences alone went viral, and the Internet people thought Gary was making a dig at a power conference that has struggled so far this season; there are no Big 10 teams ranked in the top 10 in the latest AP poll. For GP to make a dig, he usually thinks about it. This was not a dig.
Gary sent me the following text message to clarify:
"Wasn't meant that way at all. I wouldn't take a shot at a best friend (Minnesota head coach Jerry Kill).
Only meant we have played two games period. Lots of football ahead - that's all I meant."
Believe him. This was a nothing.
