Sorry, BCS: The College Football Playoff Unveils Its New Trophy (Photo)

I suppose as interesting as the trophy itself is the fact that we’re calling the college football playoff, “The College Football Playoff.”  Huh? Okay. I guess there’s no need for subtlety or innuendo.

Boring names aside, here’s the trophy for the winner of the COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYOFF, which, starting this season, will take the place of the BCS. I don’t want to get graphic here, but it looks like it’s got a certain “Georgia O’Keefe” quality to it.

In case that doesn’t mean much to you: The trophy sort of looks like a vagina…a little…but a lot at the top.

It’s made out of 24 karat gold, bronze, and stainless steel and weighs 34 lbs, which sounds pretty damn heavy. I mean, a lineman from FSU won’t have trouble hoisting it, but I could see this thing crushing someone like the Boise State Director of Athletics, or a placekicker.

And as long as we’re sharing information, the logo on the base of the trophy and at the top is, in fact, the logo for the College Football Playoff.

Clever.
