Earlier this month Virginia Tech running back J.C. Coleman got a lot of attention for wearing a gold G-Shock during a football game against Ohio State. Now Kentucky Wildcats wide receiver Jeff Badet is talking about how he wears his G-Shock during games to signify him always being “clocked in” on the field. Badet wore his black G-Shock throughout spring practice but replaced it with a white G-Shock for their victorious season opener against Louisiana-Lafayette. Badet was worried the officials might have had a problem if they saw his large G-Shock so he opted for a smaller watch that blended in with his wristbands. After seeing J.C. Coleman wear his flashy G-Shock without incident, Badet returned to his original watch in a victory against South Carolina. Badet sometimes points to the watch when celebrating big plays. The Wildcats will face the Florida Gators on Saturday night.
