Bill Belichick is known for cutting the sleeves off the hoodies he wears during games, but he might want to keep them on, based on some recent research.
Bleacher Report’s Mike Dussault compiled a Belichick hoodie database, which shows game-by-game results based on what type of sweatshirt the New England Patriots coach wore.
Here’s the breakdown, dating from 2003 until the end of last season:
When Belichick wears a gray hoodie with sleeves, he wins at a 90 percent clip and is undefeated in the playoffs. But when his hoodie’s sleeves go, he’s 44-15 with a handful of playoff losses.
Belichick doesn’t fare as well when he wears short sleeves either, with just a 25-11 record. In fact, he was 3-4 last season with short sleeves or polos.
So what does this all mean? Nothing, but it’s interesting to note that some of Belichick’s biggest losses have come when he cuts off those sleeves.
