Kliff Kingsbury, Texas Tech's stylish, Ryan Gosling-lookalike head coach, has come to embrace his semi-celebrity status.
This week at Big 12 Media Days, Kingsbury was spotted wearing what appeared to be an uber-expensive Breitling watch. According to Deadspin, the watch has a retail price of more than $100,000.

But, as it turns out, the timepiece is likely a fake. The commentators on this Breitling forum have spotted several abnormalities, like the following:
"Fake tourbillon at 6 is a dead giveaway, plus wrong date font, subdial font, watch has pushers but no chronograph."
Kingsbury could certainly afford this watch -- his salary pays him $10.5 million over five years -- but perhaps he thought no one would notice the difference. Or maybe he himself didn't realize it was a knockoff.
Between this story and the video of Kingsbury morphing into Kansas coach Charlie Weis, it's certainly been a weird week for the third-youngest coach in college football.
