Akey’s Departure Brings Tears

This morning Jason Gesser met with reporters for the first time after being named Idaho's interim head football coach. The 33-year-old former Washington State quarterback, wearing a black pinstripe suit with a gray tie, started crying a few minutes into the press conference when talking about the influence that Robb Akey, the man he's replacing, has had on him. “Akey’s been everything for me,” Gesser said. “The guy means a lot. … I mean, I owe my life to the guy”/Josh Wright, SR SportsLink. More here. (Dan Pelle's SR file photo of Jason Gesser earlier this fall)

Question: Do guys cry too much today?
