Mike Leach uses odd choice of words when describing Nick Saban
Mississippi State coach Mike Leach is always good for an interesting quote, no matter the situation.
Even though Leach and the Bulldogs are 1-3 and staring down a Halloween date with Nick Saban’s undefeated Alabama Crimson Tide, Leach is still entertaining.
On Wednesday, Leach used an interesting expression when describing Nick Saban, calling him a “sweater wearer” (via AL.com):
“I can’t say I know him real well but I know him some over the years,” Leach said on the SEC coaches teleconference. “I’ve always been impressed … you know he’s very committed to coaching. With coaches, there are a certain number that are sweater wearers, you know they want to wear the sweater, but they’re not really up to their neck in it. Coach Saban is the guy that’s all football, all the time.”
That sounds like a compliment to Saban, even though we’re not sure we’ve ever seen the legendary coach wearing an actual sweater.
Maybe he’ll break one out if it gets chilly in Tuscaloosa on Saturday night.
