Kid's Derek Dooley costume is better than yours

Posted by Jerry Hinnen

One of the cool things about the modern-day Internet is that when John or Suzy Q. College Football Fan in Anywhere, USA does something brilliant, we all get to find about it. And one Tennessee-supporting mother named Cortney has indeed gone and done something brilliant:

For those of you unfamiliar with the current Volunteer head coach, that costume is Derek Dooley from the top of his headset to the soles of his shoes. We don't know a lot of details about Cortney (or her tyke, who we expect Barbara Dooley to try and make a play for legal custody of any minute now), but thanks to an e-mail to Outkick the Coverage we do know how she put together the costume: an XBox accessory for the headset, a pitch-perfect dye job for the pants, an iron-on for the T logo, a radio clip to accompany the headset and -- most critically -- a black vinyl wig borrowed from a Superman outfit for Derek's impeccable hair.

We seriously doubt Cortney's efforts are going to be topped this Halloween season, but the nice thing is that if anyone does? The Internet will make sure we know about it.

PHOTO: Arkansas's midfield 9/11 tribute

Posted by Jerry Hinnen

No doubt there'll be plenty of inspiring 9/11 tributes across the sports universe this week, college football very much included. But the coolest one we've seen thus far comes from Arkansas, where ArkansasSports360.com has published a photo of this red-white-and-blue rendition of the Razorbacks' midfield logo:

For those of you unfamiliar with the usual Hog logo, you can get a little better idea of the tribute version looking at this horizontal rotation (maybe):

No doubt we'll get even better photos in the coming days. But we also don't think there's much doubt this is too cool not to share right now.

HT: @cbahn. Logo design by @a_dot_reynolds.
