Throwing this out for discussion as I haven't seen anything on it (maybe I completely missed it and if so, I apologize). I'm sure there are some that will disagree, but I am not impressed by the new trophy. I can't figure out which it looks like. I've heard some say it looks like a representation of the Bat Signal but with a football - maybe Commissioner Gordon is calling for football trivia help from the Caped Crusader. I think it also looks like a crappy beer stein that would dribble all over your shirt. Mostly the top looks...hmmm, how to put this delicately...like the nether naughty bits of the female anatomy. (Maybe I just have a dirty mind, but look at it and tell me...amitrite?) My kids think it looks like a musical instrument. My wife thinks it looks like a calla lily.

I liked the crystal ball, personally. I especially liked the potential for a ham-handed athlete to drop the thing and shatter it (looking at you Orson Charles). I thought it looked...classy. To me, this new one is on the level of the Land Grant trophy. I realize they needed a new trophy, that the BCS trophy coudn't be used, but maybe something along similar lines would work better.
