Kliff Kingsbury Reads His Admirers' Flattering Tweets on 'SportsNation'

Kliff Kingsbury is a handsome man. This much we know.

The Texas Tech coach is among the less paunchy and better-dressed figures in college sports, and what more awkward way to drive that point home than to have the man read detailed tweets about his own good looks?

Thus we have this segment from ESPN's SportsNation, which asked Kingsbury to quote gushy messages about himself written by random Twitter users.

Well, that was fun. And uncomfortable.

I credit Kingsbury for going through with the segment. Getting a college football coach to say something nice about himself is like milking a horse—you can do it, but it's going to get weird.

While we're here, let’s get meta and read some random tweets of people fawning over Kingsbury while he reads fawning tweets.

Also, here's a screenshot of what comes up when you type "Kliff Kingsbury" into Twitter.

One of these things does not belong. Kingsbury is to Charlie Weis as tuna tartare is to KFC Double Down.

The weird explanation for this is that the Big 12 just began airing a commercial where the head coach of each program says his piece and morphs into another coach.


You know what makes for an aggressive shape-shift? Kingsbury to Weis.

With that, we can conclude our semiannual "Kingsbury is an attractive man" report. I hope you consider yourself up to date and informed on all Kingsbury news.

Just remember: We are all lesser mortals than the Red Raider Gosling.
