For licensing reasons, they can’t actually call him Coach Taylor or emblazon his traditional blue cap and polo shirt with the Dillon Panther logo, but we all know what we’re seeing. Even if the stakes aren’t quite as high as winning State, it’s always good to see Coach Taylor delivering one of his infamous inspirational speeches—he even breaks out the old “clear eyes, full hearts” mainstay.
