2. This is what Mike Gundy’s mullet might look like in two or three weeks. Still playful, still funny, but manageable. The hair is still within the boundaries of general professionalism and presentability.
3. Given another three or four weeks beyond that stage, Mike Gundy’s mullet will reach full Legionnaire Hat status.

4. Then, Mike Gundy’s mullet will hit a point of no return, an accelerated growth point which will transform him from coach having some fun in the offseason into Lorenzo Lamas body double in a straight-to-VHS sex thriller. The title of this film is BUCKWILD, and Coach Gundy is needed on set for one day but winds up hanging around for five. He and Lorenzo form a lasting friendship that is only dissolved when the business they invest in together goes belly up.
