Summer Vacation With The Big 12 Coaches

USA TODAY Sports

What the Big 12 coaches did on their summer vacation in GIF form.

There really isn't any such thing as the off season in college football anymore. For us fans, there is a lot of time between the national title game and the first fall practice. It's an eternity that comes once a year and we do our best to fill our time with games that involve round balls and mix in a little recruiting. But it just isn't the same as the electricity that fills the air as the days grow shorter.

For coaches, there is just a week or so that they can go on vacation. Nick Saban thinks vacations show a lack of commitment. But the rest of the world likes to take this time to recharge the batteries and find a new outlook on life and football. For instance, Dana Holgorsen is a bit of a thrill seeker and has taken to skydiving in the past as a way to blow off some steam. This year, he kept his feet on the ground but was moving fast none the less.

Bill Snyder never ceases to amaze me. Just when you think you've seen it all, he gives you another reason to call him the wizard. I wouldn't think a man of his age could move like that. Charlie Weis on the other hand has no desire to move anywhere fast and instead chose to work on his Jedi mind tricks on his vacation.

Kliff Kingsbury is the new kid coach in the Big 12 and thus is subject to bit of good humored hazing. Which the rest of the Big 12 coaches have all been through and are happy to use to welcome Kingsbury into the fraternity of head coaches. Kliff just needs to work on that dismount.
