Ed Orgeron: Often imitated ... never duplicated — at least not well. 

As ESPN brought its stable of college coaches through its studios for preseason interviews, the network gathered clips of several coaches doing their best Orgeron impersonations. 

The Tigers' affable Cajun coach has a gravely voice that can be hard to interpret at times, but is certainly unique. 

"It's like he's acting. But he's not acting," said Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury. "So you've got to appreciate that." 

Impersonators included names like Clemson's Dabo Swinney and North Carolina's Larry Fedora. Tennessee's Butch Jones was the only SEC representative. The undisputed worst attempt came from Duke coach David Cutcliffe.
