12. Charlie Strong, USF
Another guy who will always be considered intense and competitive as heck, Charlie Strong has bounced around a little more than people would have expected after his Louisville days, but he’s a positive enough coach that he doesn’t let it get him down.
Strong is a guy who always seems to bounce back and land on his feet no matter the mountain of a challenge standing in front of him, but what the heck does that have to do with being the life of a tailgate party, you ask?
Well, it really doesn’t, but he’s going to be a positive influence on just about everyone. Plus, he can be that one guy who takes care of everyone else who seems to be getting out of control. Everyone needs that one friend to keep them under control and Strong has the willpower to do that while still having a good time himself.
And like I said before, he’s competitive, so picking him for your cornhole or ladder-ball team would be a wise choice.
There’s a reason all of Strong’s players have backed him even when schools have turned their backs due to lack of wins, and it’s because he’s just an all-around great guy to be around.
