So far just among friends of mine who are big college football fans the reaction has been pretty negative.

It looks funny watching grown men kiss the new trophy. I prefer the crystal football for sure.

The crystal football looked like it belonged in a kitchen cupboard. Never was football macho enough.

The College Football Playoff Trophy is more masculine and commands attention. It definitely looks more like what men would fight for!

I like it more than I like the crystal football. The crystal football looks fragile and bland and old. Like something I could see a grandma and grandpa having. The new trophy is modern, large, strong looking and has striking colors (as opposed to the opaque look of the crystal football).

Are you saying the newer trophy looks smaller than the Crystal football? Are we looking at the same trophy if that is the case?

Yes the older crystal national championship trophy and stand looks bigger.

But its hard to tell both photos are not great. We need each trophy in front of the team shot to really compare.

If you look at the players holding one or the other it becomes obvious the actual CFP Trophy is larger. The crystal football was the actual trophy and I don't really think much of the platform it sits on. If we are looking at the platform for both trophies I would still stay the CFP trophy looks bigger (taller but less wide).

Oh really? With the CFB Championship trophy picture all i can see is a tall gold trophy getting wider as it gets taller, and a very small black base no bigger then the widest spot on the trophy. The base has a picture of a football and underneath it says "National Championship" The trophy is sitting on a table that says "national championship trophy"

Now it could be my device its not really hi tech.

But your right i was thinking the crystal ball and stand was the trophy.
