Something’s a little different today at the UK Football training center, where reporters are currently awaiting Mark Stoops and the defense’s remarks on today’s practice. The much-discussed 1950 National Championship trophy has been modified. The trophy used to feature a crystal football on the top to match the style of the national championship trophy before the College Football Playoff system was put into place; however, today, the crystal football is gone, and the old 1951 Sugar Bowl trophy sits in its place.

UK received some criticism online for “claiming” the 1950 National Championship (a defense of which you can read here by Freddie Maggard). Perhaps this is their response?
