Fran Makes A Funny

Tired of his team getting ripped by Big 12 South opponents Dennis Franchione decided to do a little ripping of his own Wednesday night, from the safety of a podium.

Speaking at the Touchdown Club of Houston's "Texas A&M Day with Coach Fran" Franchione decided to break the ice by launching humorous jabs at most of the Big 12 South schools.

According to Joseph Duarte of the Houston Chronicle Fran took shots at Texas, Baylor and Texas Tech fans and then launched a crowd pleaser at the Oklahoma Sooners' expense.

His best line, however, was directed at Big 12 South rival Oklahoma. Franchione discussed all the returning quarterbacks in the Big 12 before noting the Sooners were one of the few teams that had to find a quarterback this season.

"That may be the only question mark they have ... other than what (summer) jobs they're going to work this year," Franchione said in reference to OU's recent NCAA sanctions involving former quarterback Rhett Bomar.

The crowd erupted in laughter.

Who would have thought Fran actually had a funny bone? Of course Sooner fans have been laughing at him since 2003.
