DANDYISM IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL: A HALLOWED TRADITION

KLIFF KINGSBURY IS JUST BEING A TRADITIONALIST

Oh, that lean, Kliff Kingsbury:

My god that's the luckiest wall in the world, say the ladies of Lubbock. The first bro-in-chief in college football may be the pioneer in wearing expensive sneakers, slim hoodies, and v-necks, but let's be clear on this: as long as Kliff Kingsbury is pushing the envelope of good ol' boy fashion forward, he is merely being a traditionalist.

Case one: Bear "SWAAAAGGGGG" Bryant.

You play to your strengths as a player and as a coach, and clearly Bear Bryant had so much Bama in him it had to bleed into his very clothing. Kingsbury could wear skinny jeans and a smedium organic pickling co-op's shirt on the sidelines and it would pale next to Bear Bryant's unstoppable old-man-with-a-giant-cadillac-full-of-money-and-nude-ladies jacketry. (Particularly this pink pattern, which Bryant worse presumably to soothe the other team into docile, compliant opposition. "I'd like to fight, but the world's most terrifying easter bunny is on the sidelines smoking a Chesterfield.")

The other counter-example to anyone ever mocking Kliff Kingsbury's fashion sense is the mother sauce for modern coaching, the treemaker himself, Hayden Fry:

Additionally, Kliff Kingsbury is 33 and is a head coach of an FBS football team making millions of dollars to do what he loves. So, yeah: advantage you, bro on the internet typing away in a polo and ill-fitting jeans. You're clearly coming out of this matchup a winner.
