Nick Saban: Turkey
As you know, every Thanksgiving has a turkey. Ol’ reliable. It is always the same, consistent, delicious bird every single year. Kind of boring, kind of dry, but it just wouldn’t be the same without it. Yeah, sounds like Nick Saban to me.
Ed Orgeron: Cranberry Sauce
It is one of the most random foods that normally gets put on the table. Should it be out of a can or homemade? Is it dessert? Does it go on dressing? The world may never know... Ever seen a Coach O press conference?
Mike Leach: Sweet Potato Casserole
If you are like me, you love the marshmallows or pecans on the top, but sometimes the sweet potato part isn’t your favorite. This is perfectly Coach Leach. Sometimes he is the best, and sometimes he just makes you wonder what the hell is going on. You love it, you hate it. That is Mississippi State football in a nutshell.
Lane Kiffin: Mashed Potatoes
Let’s be honest, this is the lesser of the potatoes group on Thanksgiving. There is hash brown casserole, sweet potatoes and all kinds of potatoes. Mashed Potatoes are good, I’ll have them on my plate, but probably won’t be bragging about them.
Sam Pittman: Mac & Cheese
Mac and cheese might not be at every Thanksgiving. It might be slept on, and sometimes it’s made from a box. This year might be boxed mac and cheese. Maybe some extra cheese and some extra butter, so it’s better than normal. Sam Pittman is learning to make some homemade mac and cheese at Arkansas, and it’s going to be good next Thanksgiving.
Jimbo Fisher: Pumpkin Pie
Does anyone actually like pumpkin pie or is it just one of those things that you have every year just for the sake of it? Truth be told, it is extremely overrated... just like a certain head coach I know.
Gus Malzahn: Dressing
Depending if its made right, dressing is one of my favorite parts of the holiday season. But bad dressing might just one of the worst things the table has to offer on Turkey Day. Good Malzahn is phenomenal, but bad Malzahn is just flat out terrible.
