BIG BOY

Beth Hall-USA TODAY Sports

Every year, the college basketball community comes together to support the fight against cancer. They do this through Coaches vs. Cancer, a fantastic organization that has raised over $87 million for the American Cancer Society in the past. Coaches vs. Cancer raises public awareness through several events, but perhaps the most well-known is the Suits and Sneakers Weekend. During this weekend, coaches across the country ditch their dress shoes and walk the sideline in fresh sneaks instead. It's a fun way to support an amazing cause, and if you hadn't heard about any of this before I implore you to click one of the links I posted above and get learned.

Our very own Frank Haith, no slouch when it comes to fashion, donned a pair of white and gold Air Force Ones during the event. The Tigers performed admirably during that timespan, handling South Carolina 82-74, but then something strange happened. Suits and Sneakers Weekend ended, and Haith kept on wearing his Ones. During Mizzou's 75-71 victory at Arkansas, Haith patrolled the sidelines in the same gold and white Ones that he wore against the Gamecocks. When asked about his kicks, Frank let the media know that he would be squeaking up and down the floor as long as his team kept their winning steak going.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Breaking News: Haith confirms he&#39;s sticking with the sneakers as long as Mizzou wins. &quot;Yes, sir. Yes, sir.&quot; <a href="http://t.co/1YhR55uUnM">pic.twitter.com/1YhR55uUnM</a></p>&mdash; Dave Matter (@Dave_Matter) <a href="https://twitter.com/Dave_Matter/statuses/428356756578635776">January 29, 2014</a></blockquote>
