Have you ever seen Rod Smith's Neck?
mesmerism! presidential assassinations! circuses on fire!
Coaching is simply NOT a healthy lifestyle. Even the thinner coaches out there look like hell. Unfortunately, our guys deal with stress by eating, it seems.
Who is that one Weis sized guy I've seen on the sidelines?
Weis and that Kansas guy could eat our entire "fat" staff.
who you're talking about, but I'm not sure who he is either. I do remember at the beginning of fall practice last year, RichRod mentioned that "Big Dusty" was in charge of choosing the music that played at practices. So, unless someone tells me otherwise, I think that huge guy must be "Big Dusty."
Dews, Jackson, and Gibson are all in shape, right?
rr is not fat either - fred jackson is thin too
RR is not skinny, but he isn't obese, he just has somewhat of a belly. As for Hopson, his wife is hot.
This post should have been rephrased to say:
Greg Frey and Rod Smith are fat. Everyone else is normal.
No love for McGee?
And heat in the winter. Home heating costs being what they are.
Arguably, the top 4 coaches are Tressel, Caroll, Meyer and Saban. All of these guys are thin/in shape. Coincidence?
yes it is, and RR is not fat for the record
RichRod is Mickelson-shaped.
These guys are pretty wealthy too, which I suppose makes it a bit easier to overeat, seeing as how they can easily afford food.
Although, they could also afford to go organic and if they really wanted I'm sure Barwis would put them on an exercise routine and nutrition plan. So I guess they're overweight by laziness or choice. Who cares?
I think a lot of it has to do with the lifestyle and fact that they are ex-atheletes. If you look at retired athletes in general they are on the heavy side due to their no longer exercising the same amount as they did during their playing days. Also, position coaches are on the road a lot, eating unhealthy food as its the easiest and quickest thing to get.
Farn n covered almost exactly what I was going to say.
They were all athletes and their metabolisms are now slower than they were. In addition, they have to work 60-100 hours a week and don't really have time to exercise regularly. In addition, their jobs are stressful.
And I really agree with the fast-food thing. I've lost almost 20 pounds since New Years, and my main lifestyle change is not eating at the "evil four" of MD's, BK, Wendy's, or Taco Hell anymore.
Coaches also spend tons of time sitting at desks handling administrative duties.
None of this is good for the waistline, or the rest of the body, either.
Obesity is much more prevalent among poor people. Think dollar menus.
Also, organic food is more expensive but not healthier. It just means the food/animal was not given growth hormones or chemicals. In other words, if you can afford to eat real meals by grabbing non-organic stuff from the produce section, you will be the same weight than if you bought all organic stuff.
My Dad attended some golf outing with the coaches and about a hundred other people last summer. There was a buffet dinner afterward and he said McGee and Frey walked in while RR was giving his little speech, loaded their plates with an enormous mountain of food, then walked right out the door and weren't seen again for the rest of the night.
