So You Want to Destroy My Sweater

May 30, 2011


Long tenures and fashion statements, these are the things that make coaching legends. 


Bear Bryant had his houndstooth.


Lombardi had his trench coat and camel skin. 


Landry had his hat that gave him a CIA silhouette. 


Wooden had his dark glasses that against his snow white hair made him look like an old doctor making house calls.


Woody Hayes had a red windbreaker, a black hat, and some old man's specs. And now, Jim Tressell has an unravelling scarlet sweater that, more and more, makes us ponder string theory and what does it all mean--what does it mean to be an amateur athlete and a molder of men?


What does it mean to teach, to love, to lie, and to win?


The answer lies in a tattoo.
