Mike Boynton’s locker room speeches are always top notch. After his team got their first conference win of the season, you knew it was going to be good. Boynton delivered.

Hardhat on, Coach Boynton was hyped after the Cowboys’ win against Texas on Tuesday night. He told his team “We couldn’t have won this game without going through everything we’ve been through the past two and a half months.”

Pardon me while I go find a brick wall to run through.
