To kick off the 2016 season, we’re introducing a slough of awards for the year — and with them, our preseason watchlist for each. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to get the latest!
This week, we look at coaches who — by dint of stress or personality — might succumb to the lure of Lady Liquor and stroll the sidelines while sloshed.
Our pre-season watchlist includes:
Les Miles (LSU) — From awkward interviews to outright madness in clock management, Lester never ceases to amaze. Maybe he’s a genius or maybe he’s just intoxicated, but he’s as close to a sure thing for this award as they come.
Will Muschamp (USC East) — If there’s one thing the 2015 Iron Bowl taught us, it’s that Billy is one (perceived) bad call away from jumping over the Cliffs of Insanity. Add to that the inherent difficulties of following the HBC at South Carolina, and you’ve got a recipe for disaster sauce.
Charlie Partridge (FAU) — Let’s count the strikes against the dude: (1) It’s in Florida, (2) the Owls have a history of coaches with drug-related incidents, and (3) the man is bested only by Muschamp for Resting Angry Face.
