‘Hud the Stud'

by Leslie Turk

Pound for pound, the Ragin' Cajuns leader is the strongest football coach in America (so says Fox Sports).

Yowza! The dude can bench press 380! And last summer repped 225 a whopping 25 times!

"If I can hit 400 (on the bench) I might just shut it down," UL football coach Mark Hudspeth told Fox Sports' Freaks Week. "My goal [is] to hit it before the season but that's gonna be awfully hard."

In a story published Friday, Fox Sports calls Hud the most underrated coach in college football, noting that despite him going 27-12 and 3-0 in bowl games even diehard college football fans probably couldn't pick him out of five random headshots. The gist of the piece, which goes on to say Hud has found a unique way to inspire his team and garner the program some pretty cool publicity, is that it'll be easier to pick him out of the lineup soon.

Here's one example:
