Matthew McConaughey Speech Football Team


Matthew McConaughey loves making speeches, and loves the University of Texas football team.

He recently visited the squad as they practiced in the Austin heat, giving a speech that was equal parts inspiration and “True Detective”-style philosophy.

“Why do I play this game? Why am I doing this?” McConaughey asked the players to ask themselves. “Why do I come out to practice? Why am I out here busting my a** in the middle of the heat every day?”

McConaughey also led the team in a rendition of his bizarre chest-thumping chant from The Wolf of Wall Street.
