Colin Cowherd Prefers Scruffy Athletes Who Look Like They 'Came Out of the Forest'

Sports personality Colin Cowherd has expressed his preference for like, athletes to have a rugged, scruffy appearance on game day. During a recent discussion on his show "The Herd" with co-host Jason McIntyre, Cowherd shared his appreciation for athletes with facial hair, citing Chicago Bears quarterback Caleb Williams as an example.

"For the record, on game day, I don't want my guys clean-shaven," Cowherd declared. "I want guys that look like they just came out of the forest carrying timber. I don't even care if they bathed." He went on to explain, "If I'm going to go do something that's physical, like go work out, I don't shower, I don't shave. On the weekends, I'm all scruffy... You're going to go be physical. You gotta look the part, you're going to feel emotionally the part."

Cowherd's comments come after he previously criticized athletes for wearing backward hats, including JJ Redick. He has a distinct preference for athletes to wear their hats forward-facing. The sports host also mentioned his appreciation for Andrew Luck's neckbeard during his time as quarterback of the Indianapolis Colts.
