CFP unveils new title trophy

CFP Playoff II

Four days after being a trophy tease, the new system for determining a champion in college football has unveiled its new hardware.

At a press conference Monday morning, the newly-minted College Football Playoff revealed the new trophy for college football’s national champion at the FBS level.  The CFP is a four-team tournament that will first be played following the conclusion of the 2014 regular season, with a pair of semifinal games preceding the national championship game.

While the new trophy is no crystal football, it’s actually a pretty good-looking piece of hardware as far as trophies go.  Take a gander below:

CFP executive director Bill Hancock stated “we wanted something that could be hoisted” by the winning team. The trophy weighs in at 35 pounds — by comparison, the old crystal football sans the stand weighed eight pounds — and is made of 24-carat gold, bronze and stainless steel.

    Looks like lipstick.

    Anyways,…most important question of all: who is sponsoring the trophy?

    I think the crystal ball looks a lot nicer. Too bad they didn’t ask for my opinion I guess.

    Brownstown,

    Let me take a shot at it. Revlon is sponsoring it right?

    Wow that’s terrible…. I feel like there is a giant pen that is missing.

    That’s just really bad….

    “Lipstick on a pig” … The moment we get controversy on who in/left out, it writes itself.

    That $#!% UGLY! The Crystal Ball had a look of Prestige. That looks like the Prize for the Brides Maid!

    oh wow, are we trying to achieve the anti-phallus. It looks like a va-jay-jay.

    Maybe that says more about me than it does the trophy. HA! :D

    Loved the crystal ball but if they were determined to replace it, hoped they’d come up with something to rival the Lombari. This is in the same vein. Like the minimalist approach.

    The Lombardi Trophy it ain’t. Nor the crystal football. They can slap all the 24-karat gold on it they want, that thing is UGLY.
