Jets coach Rex Ryan will be coaching against his twin brother Rob this week and the best thing about that is we get to publish pictures of the Ryan brothers with matching mustaches from the 1980's.

The picture above was taken at the Ryan's college graduation ceremony in the early 80's, according to the New York Post. The brothers attended Southwestern Oklahoma State together where they both played football.

That third person in the graduation picture is family patriarch Buddy Ryan, the former head coach of the Eagles and Cardinals. Buddy will be at the game on Sunday and he'll probably be rooting for the son with the best mustache.

The mustaches in the picture are definitely interesting, but the thing that fascinates me the most is all of the traffic lights. Seriously, look at the reflection in the window and count the traffic lights. Were there 17 traffic lights on every block in the 1980's? Does anyone remember the 80's that might be able to confirm this?

The Ryan brothers haven't coached against each other since the 2011 regular season opener when Rob was the Cowboys defensive coordinator. The Jets won that game 27-24. However, don't think these brothers only spend time together on a football field, sometimes they hang out at the beach.
