Video: UNT and SMU are Getting Ready for the Hippogriff Trophy

SMU and UNT both released videos of their workouts this morning. Both appear to be prepping for the soon to be contested Hippogriff Trophy. For the uninitiated, here is the trophy.

Behold!

 Again, this is just a mockup but we're pretty tied to the design at this point.

First let's look at UNT's video. 

Hmmmmm. I think we can do better North Texas. Much better. Did dude attempt to skip that last rep? Why are we emphasizing that? When I was in high school we used to hide in bathroom stalls pretending to use the facilities to miss reps. Just show dudes doing that. 

Ok SMU, this is a bit more like it. We've got the use of lumber, it appears these guys aren't trying to drop reps. We've even got the knuckle push up which are hard, but not as difficult as the elbow push up. It does appear however that several players are wearing what appear to be halter tops, so we don't have a clean score. 

Keep lifting boys. Fall is just around the corner.
