Kliff Kingsbury's resemblance to Ryan Gosling gets Texas Tech coach on Jeopardy (Video)

Kliff Kingsbury is not just the head coach of the Texas Tech Red Raiders, but he’s also a very famous actor having starred in such films as The Notebook, Crazy, Stupid, Love and Blue Valentine. Oh wait, that’s not Kingsbury, that’s Ryan Gosling who bears a striking resemblance to the coach who enters his second season with his alma mater, and that resemblance got him a spot on Jeopardy.

According to The Dallas Morning News, “ingsbury was the clue to the $400 answer under the “Pop culture” category. The full clue: “Texas Tech head football coach Kliff Kingsbury — seen here — looks a lot like this star of Half Nelson and Drive.” The answer (or question, if you want to follow proper Jeopardy! protocol) was of course Ryan Gosling.

You can watch the clip from the episode below.

Not only is Kingsbury one of the brightest young offensive masterminds in college football, but he coached Johnny Manziel during his Heisman Trophy season in 2012, had a brilliant playing career at Tech that earned him a cup of coffee in the NFL and he’s also a pretty darn good rapper.
