Big Ten Players Assign Halloween Costumes to Coaches

CBS recently partnered with SnappyTV.com in order to tackle one of the most important issues of the week: How would Big Ten players dress their respective coaches for Halloween.


According to the SnappyTV video, Indiana quarterback Nate Sudfeld sees coach Kevin Wilson as Fred Flintstone.

“I could see that,” Wilson said, obviously being a good sport.

Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst could pull off being “The Donald,” Donald Trump. Presidential version or business tycoon? Donald has a couple of different looks–but nailing the hair piece is of the highest priority.

Nebraska coach Mike Riley would fit as Barney–that happy-go-lucky purple dinosaur that, fortunately, went extinct in the late 1990s. Penn State’s James Franklin could be a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, according to defensive tackle Anthony Zettel, who may or may not have some extra laps coming up during next practice.

At first, Franklin didn’t know what to think of a turtle. But after being told it was of the TMNT mold, he was OK with it.

“They’re a little more acceptable to me,” said Franklin.

But which one, coach? Donatello? Leonardo? Michelangelo? Or, how about Raphael?

Michigan linebacker James Ross III said he’d dress up coach Jim Harbaugh as a bottle of “blue Gatorade.” Harbaugh’s head would support the trademark orange screw-on top, while his body would be just one big container of the multi-use hydration fluid.

It can be poured on cereal, too.

Michigan State defensive end Shilique Calhoun wants to see coach Mark Dantonio dressed as Michael Jackson–one of the greatest pop stars, if not the greatest, who wowed crowds with his signature moonwalk dance step.

That’d be a thriller.
