Training camp seems to bring out the best in Cincinnati Bearcats head coach Tommy Tuberville. When he’s not inspiring and developing the hoard of young men around him, he’s taking in the occasional golf game and strumming his guitar. Most importantly, UC SID Ryan Koslen took a snapshot of Tuberville with said guitar and it became an instant fan favorite. I’m still waiting on a picture from someone on the team of him singing Kumbaya to the players and coaches around a single camp fire at Higher Ground.
Now a new incredible photo has been released today and I understandably freaked out.

I mean, how glorious is that?
Not only is the golf cart camouflaged, to undoubtedly sneak up on players who are resting too long between workouts, but the “Bad Boy” sticker front and center is a nice, ironic touch. Tommy Tuberville wouldn’t hurt a fly. An assistant coach, maybe, but not a fly. Then you have Tuberville’s grotesquely bright red sneakers and his patented sun hat, which contrast perfectly with the whole backdoorsy, camo vibe from the golf cart. Finally an unmistakable, “check me out” grin of satisfaction rounds off what is one of the best photos the UC head coach has ever taken.
Hopefully we see many more of these in the upcoming football season.
