Video: Arkansas coach John L. Smith wants reporters to 'SMILE!'

Arkansas interim coach John L. Smith has a reputation for being, shall we say, colorful when put in front of a microphone, and Monday was no exception. Despite coming off a 52-0 shellacking by Alabama that was one of the worst home losses in school history, Smith was in no mood to wallow.

In case you missed it, here are his introductory remarks: "You guys act like it's -- pick it up a little bit. OK? Get your chin up. Smile! SMILE! OK? Dang, you guys ... all right? If not, I'M NOT TALKING.”

And, of course, here's the video:

Not quite Allen Iverson's rant about practice, but then again, Smith is a 63-year-old coach.
