Kliff Kingsbury's swagger found to be lacking substance

Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury has tried extremely hard to craft an image for himself as the swaggy, hip coach. Sometimes it's not that hard to do, I mean this is Lubbock we're talking about. But just because you can fool the yokels in Hub City, don't go getting the big head.

Example: Kingsbury was spotted at Big 12 Media Day sporting a very tasty Breitling Mulliner Tourbillon that retails for around $100,000. Slight problem, upon not so closer examination it turns out to clearly be a $100 knockoff. Swagger fail.

This is a classic example of style before substance. Yes, Kliff wants to be the James Bond of the Big 12. But actually achieving that is hard and extremely difficult to budget if you don't have an endorsement deal, especially on a Texas Tech Head Coach's salary. So you turn to eBay for a cheap way around the problem. Just remember the internets is a two way street and full of actual watch guys that absolutely have nothing better to do than sniff out posers then take great joy in pointing it out when they do.

The whole ugly story on Deadspin. Guns up, Lil' Buddy. Guns, up.
