How did this unconventional uniform choice happen? Some hypotheses:

A. Cranston forgot to put on shorts in the morning and all of his teammates, coaches, and friends colluded in not telling him. Observers, photographers, and opponents joined in on the collusion.

B. Cranston lost his shorts while on the D-line during a particularly athletic bid deep.

C. Cranston's shorts melted due to the high temperatures and became striped leggings.

D. Cranston is wearing shorts; they're underneath his yoga pants.

E. Cranston embraced fashion advice from Minneapolis Subzero.
