After Stanford's 20-14 Rose Bowl victory over Wisconsin, ESPN's Heather Cox failed in her attempt to get the obligatory sideline interview with the winning coach, David Shaw.

Shaw, however, was not exactly cooperative, trying to walk away multiple times before giving her the boilerplate answer – something along the lines of keeping the winning tradition alive – as he was whisked away by a staff member to the trophy presentation.

You can hear Cox say, "are you kidding?" as Brent Musberger tries to explain away the miscommunication. 

Surely Cox knows that next time she should just body check anyone getting in her way to get the full interview like Holly Rowe. 

Regardless, Shaw should probably know better than to walk away from an interview with ESPN and Cox should know the mic is always hot.
