Go Back

And the Thighsman Trophy goes to...

It's like the Heisman, just significantly more prestigious.

Now that the ol' college foozball regular season is in the book-eroos, we’ve got two vital matters to attend to, Chubster Nation: Matter 1) cleaning our flabongo, and Matter 2) awarding the first-ever Thighsman Trophy, given by us to the most impressive TD scored by a lineman this season.

Because according to ConvenientFacts.com, bigger thighs are 99.9% more likely to produce better scores.

So we hit the film room, where we watched 6 hours of college football highlights and 17 hours of MacGyver episodes, came up with finalists, voted, and then ordered GIFs of the top 10 vote getters 10-to-1 for your and Joe Mantegna’s viewing pleasure below.

Oh, and Go Mud Dogs.

There’s open, and then there’s a 24-hour Denny’s. And THEN there’s Brandon Knight.

Nothing to see here guys… except a 300-pound center going full tilt armageddon beast mode on Penn State’s dome.

7. Stevie Tui’kolovatu, Utah

6. Hassan Ridgeway, Texas

Stumblin’, bumblin’, rumblin’, almosttriplin’, stillonhisfeetlin’, backtorumblin', touchdownlin’.

Few dudes can pull off gold pants like Malik McMorris can pull off gold pants.
