    Why don't more coaches wear sweat suits instead of dress suits

    during games like Huggy Bear of West Virginia?

    Because they don't want to look like a tool?

    that is a classy look, plus it keeps everyone on their toes thinking that the coach might just be coming in at the next timeout.

    I'd like our coach to wear a mock turtleneck. An Adidas one.

    Re: Why don't more coaches wear sweat suits instead of dress suits

    I thought LE's mock neck was awesome, but he always wore that with a suit. I think it shows a certain amount of professionalism, which has always been beneath Huggy...

    Re: Why don't more coaches wear sweat suits instead of dress suits

    I think they should wear their uniforms like baseball manager do.

    Re: Why don't more coaches wear sweat suits instead of dress suits

    Personally I think bball coaches should dress like football coaches, in polos and such. Better yet they should dress like baseball managers.

    Re: Why don't more coaches wear sweat suits instead of dress suits

    IMO I wish more people would dress like Huggins. I am not a fan of suits, I am a fan of comfort, and for me coaching in a suit would just not be comfortable.

    Re: Why don't more coaches wear sweat suits instead of dress suits

    WM always looked good in his track suit off the court never figured out why he didn't wear it on the court. I just assumed it was because the combo of the track suit and his fierce smile would've been deadly and would've probably caused one or two cheerleaders to faint.

    I'm disappointed in you guys. Not ONE picture of George Raveling yet?

    Personally, I prefer the mock turtleneck that LE used to rock.

    He caught so much crap for that, yet I think it's totally appropriate; more so than the GQ Rick Pitino / Steve Alford's , with the folded hankies in the breast pocket.

    These are coaches - at a basketball game for crying out loud; this is not the Back of America board meeting.
