    Why you don't make $30k trophies

    Because they can be knocked over and get shattered!

    Alabama Crimson Tide's crystal BCS trophy is shattered in mishap - ESPN

    For a program that wins championships, you would think their players would have enough coordination to avoid tripping into the trophy!

    Charley Green, trophy manager for the American Football Coaches Association, said he uses adhesive tape to secure the ball when it's toured around the country and advises universities to take the same precautions when displaying it.

    "It's pretty fragile, I guess," Green said. "It only weighs about eight pounds so I can see where if it gets bumped it would roll off."
    "Hey ya'll, jus tape'er down, yule be fine."

    At least they didn't drop it under a bus.

    ^ Yeah, but soccer players don't use their hands anyway. Unless the goalie dropped it. That would be ironic

    I'm amused how the trophy was broken. I have a feeling that the football player is never going to hear the end of this story about how his clumsy father tripped and broke a $30,000 trophy, for the rest of his time on the team.

    I have actually held/carried several several trophys

    Big East Championship trophy for football land basketball, Sugar Bowl Trophy and the Orange Bowl Trophy. heck even the NCAA Rifle champ one. We do a ton of work for the University Sports marketing and had them to photograph for some different stuff.

    here is a low res of the Rifle Team poster I did a few years ago that shows the
    NCAA rifle trophy

    This is why you keep all trophies locked in glass. At Texas, all of the trophies (90% sure) are untouchable.
