I must admit, I'm no slave to fashion. I understand the sweatervest is his 'thing', his trademark. Bear Bryant had the hat and I guess Gentleman Jim has the sweatervest. I personally would have chosen something a little farther back in the Penny's catalogue, if you know what I mean--but live and let live.
This weekend at Wisconsin he looked like he was wearing his boyfriend's varsity jacket. I half expected to see a class ring around his neck or on his finger wrapped with several rubberbands to take up the extra space. Actually, it was a little more "satin-y" than a varsity jacket and oh, so colorful. Think Adrian Zmed.
Maybe it is not the clothes. Maybe its the guy. Just like the purple outfit at K State makes Mangino look like Violet Beauregarde after she steals the 3 course meal candy thing. Tressel and his registered sex offender persona looks non-sequiter on a football field anyway.
Anyway, not knocking his skills as a coach. He has had our number recently as we all know. However, on the 'Pinky Tuscadero to Bill Belichick' clothing spectrum, he may want to Butch it up a bit.
