That Thing of When A Coach Starts to Look Like the Team Mascot

Here's a fun little post for you readers on Friday.  After too many games with a team, it appears that some coaches can begin to resemble their team mascot.  It is as if they have begun to take on the qualities of the very team that they are coaching.  Have a look:

Duke basketball head coach Mike Krzyzewski looks an awful lot like a Blue Devil to me. 

What about former Temple head coach John Chaney?  I used to refer to him as the "Wise Old Owl."  Another funny John Chaney quirk was that as he got madder and madder during a game, his tie would get more and more loose until it came off.  Always useful as a barometer of the Chaney anger level.

I noticed our next subject this past season as he suffered through another last place finish with the Redskins.  Poor Mike Shanahan might have to move to tribal land soon, because he is becoming a Redskin.  

Lastly, there is perhaps no more perfect look alike than old Bo Ryan of the Wisconsin Badgers basketball team.

Have a good weekend, folks.
