Posing Shirtless For Team Pictures is the New Hotness in College Football

College football is a sport for kids, really, but played by men. Big, burly, tough men, who have no time for pain (or, classes). They storm fields like invaders and pillagers of generations past. They must intimidate, at all times. Menacing stares. Angry expressions. And pictures of large groups of men with their shirts off standing in front of fancy cars.

Um, what?

Apparently, the trend of the spread offense in college football has been replaced by oddly sexual pictures for team posters. First, it was the University of Tennessee who all got shirtless and stood in front of a orange Lamborghini. Why? Because that's FOOTBAWL! (???)


Not wanting to be outdone, Georgia Tech also went all Matthew McConaughey on us, and did so with not one, but two cars. And not just any cars, mind you, but cars from the biggest Transformer sequel blockbuster ever. Yep, that's Bumblebee and Ironhide.

The Yellow Jackets' ACC counterpart, Virginia Tech, chose to keep their shirts on, and instead they'll just show you how EXCITED they are. Yay football!
