SEC Football: What Famous Person Does Each Coach Remind You Of?
Have you ever looked at someone you know and thought they reminded you of someone else? I hope more of you said yes to that than no. If so, I don't know if that makes me more normal or you more odd. But, at least we can keep each other company.
I have gone through and looked over our SEC head coaches. While doing that, I decided who each one of them reminded me of. In some cases, it is based on looks. But mostly, it is mannerisms, situations and personalities that reminded me of someone else.
So, let's take a quick trip through and let me show you what I picked for who. I'm sure you will disagree on some or all. But, it's just about fun anyway.
By the way, Rodney Dangerfield's picture here reminds me of me.
Here we go!
Texas A&M University Coach Kevin Sumlin
New Texas A&M Coach Kevin Sumlin is a man of many faces. He can be serious, easy going, upset (at refs) or studious. Here, at his SEC Media Days presser, I thought he wore several hats.
Kind of like an actor, who once portrayed a coach who had many irons in the fire simultaneously. But he handled it well (at least in the movie). He was...
Coach Herman Boone: (Denzel Washington) in Remember the Titans
Coach Herman Boone (Denzel Washington) in Remember the Titans.
University of Tennessee Coach Derek Dooley
He has that youthful, still innocent look. Kinda reminds me of...
Florida Coach Will Muschamp
There is just something this guy's mannerisms remind me of. I just haven't quite put a finger on it, but I know it reminds me of something.
Yeah! I remember now. Funny thing, cause both Coach Muschamp and the guy I'm thinking of were transplanted Florida residents. How about...
"Say hello to my lil friend!" Tony Montana, aka Scarface!
Vanderbilt Coach James Franklin
I definitely have one he reminds me of. Franklin's sunglasses are too dark but otherwise it's...
Who loves ya, baby? Kojak!
South Carolina Coach Steve Spurrier
Mr. Easygoing. Nothing seems to get under this guy's skin. Things just seem to come easy in his life, especially winning. He kinda reminds me of...
Ty Webb (Chevy Chase) of Caddyshack
Ty Webb, the pro golfer played by Chevy Chase in the movie Caddyshack.
Kentucky Coach Joker Phillips
Coach Phillips looks like a very serious man. He reminds me of a fellow who plays the part of a very serious man, also...
Eric Foreman (Omar Epps)
Dr. Eric Foreman (Omar Epps) from the TV show House. He was always the serious guy. The guy that knew his business. But, not much of a party animal I got to say.
Missouri Coach Gary Pinkel
I don't know much about Gary Pinkel, except that he has coached some good football teams and he looks like someone who could whip my butt fairly handily. He's got that Hollywood leading man, action figure square jaw thing going. So how about...
"I'll be back" thing like Arnold from the movie The Terminator.
There is just something about this moment. Something that I can't resist. Something that timing only allows once in a lifetime...
Aaaaahhhh, that was it!
Not that Coach Richt reminds me of Richard Nixon, who left the presidency in shame, it's just the picture reminded me of Nixon as he was leaving Washington.
Auburn Coach Gene Chizik
Imagine this guy! Comes into the SEC and dominates the league while winning a national title and going 14-0 in his second year! That's cold! Cold like....
LSU Coach Les Miles
The Mad Hatter some call him. But, I see something else altogether when I look at ol Les:
Les may look and sound like his brain is disengaged from time to time. But, it's always working up there. The computer is always on.
Mississippi State Coach Dan Mullen
Here is a good football coach at one of the toughest schools to build up a winner in the SEC. I watch his teams play from time to time and they always play hard. Unfortunately, they are very often just out-manned. But, you will never hear this coach say that!
He reminds me of...
Super crime fighting hero and football coach.
Mississippi Coach Hugh Freeze
Here is another new kid on the coaching block in the SEC. Coach Freeze was Michael Oher's (The Blind Side) high school football coach. Bet he wishes Michael was in Ole Miss with him right now.
Coach Freeze reminds me of...
Little Dutch Boy
The little Dutch Boy with his finger in the dike.
I'm afraid coach Freeze may not have enough fingers for the first year or so.
Arkansas Coach John L. Smith
John L. Smith is an easy one for me. He reminds me of...
Casper, the friendly ghost!
He seems to be a very nice guy. Also, he's here now and will be gone tomorrow, or not later than the end of the season.
Alabama Coach Nick Saban
Coach Saban has won three national championships while coaching SEC teams. He won his first with LSU in 2003. He has won two more since coming to Alabama in 2007. His 2009 team was 14-0 and his 2011 team was 12-1 and both teams won a BCS National Championship.
There is only one person Nick Saban reminds me of...
He has obviously tapped on to the full power of the dark side. As a matter of fact, I think I heard him say to Les Miles as they embraced following last year's BCS title game, "Les, I am your father!" Or was that "who's yo daddy?"
