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. Here's a closeup, via Curtis Burch: [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="2048"] @CurtisBurch[/caption] 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?
