Sun Belt Commissioner Gives Out His Number Publicly

Interesting media day strategy, Commish.

Media days began in college football on Monday, so we were sure to be supplied with some fun this week. It didn't take long, as Sun Belt Commissioner Karl Benson decided to give out his cell number at his opening presser. This was first reported by CBS' Dennis Dodd via Twitter.

The new Commish was very excited to talk about the recent expansion of the conference, as it certainly had a very busy offseason. Hopefully he has a good wireless plan, because he has probably been getting bombarded with calls and texts from fans since his number was released.

It's good for Sun Belt fans to know that they have a very approachable leader at the helm, at least.
