Here is the article I was referencing that came out on Oct 2. It appears similar but distinctly different IMO. It is also a quote from McCloskey. Here is a snippet. Hmmmmm…

Houston Cougars tight end Tyler McCloskey said he and his fellow teammates believe their head coach, Tom Herman, is different.
“He’s not in it for the money,” McCloskey said. “I think he genuinely loves us; I know he does. He cares about us. He’s not worried about how big his bank account is.
“He’s building something special here. We’re building something special here, and I think that’s more important to him.”
Ok…so I emailed Anthony Oppermann to inquire about McCloskey’s quotes in the article I posted above…and here for reference. http://www.galvnews.com/sports/columns/boothreview/article_53281b41-b92a-517b-be95-6adc2d783944.html
He answered my email and said “Tyler made those comments during media availability last week Monday before the UConn game, so they were recent.”
I think this is important and clearly a better indicator of sentiments inside the locker room. Again, these are this year’s comments.
