I wish CFB or the AD would create a PR course for these players. Make it mandatory. The interviews some of these guys give are embarrassing with the slouching, uhms, ya knows, etc. Its a disservice to them and the University to leave them so unprepared to be the public face of the University.
Pretty sure this is done from a basic media (what to expect and watch out for) standpoint. A course (1-3 hours) would be better BUT to speak well in public takes a lot of time and PRACTICE. Therefore, a public speaking course should also be considered.
