New Era, New Hideous Trophy

By D.J. Byrnes on July 14, 2014 at 11:10 am

You know that iconic photo of an ecstatic Jim Tressel lording over the crystal football trophy after Ohio State's historic "upset" over the 2002 Miami team?

Try to imagine that photo, but with this hideous looking thing in place of the awesome crystal football:

"Master craftsmen" toiled for three months with "cutting edge technology" and "timeless metal casting" to create this monstrosity.

The trophy (which is detachable) and base stands three feet tall and weighs a cool 65 pounds. It's made up of 24-karat gold, bronze and stainless steel.

It will also never feature a corporate logo, which is nice, but what corporation would want its logo on a paperweight?
