Check out Heisman front-runner Cam Newton, taking a little time on this holiest of holidays* to not take himself too seriously and dress up as the hardest tooth fairy to tackle in college football history:
Also shown: Sexy Backup Quarterback Nurse Clint Moseley.
Oh, and rest assured that the rest of the Tigers, currently in line to play for the BCS Championship Game, also had fun dressing up in this Halloween contest:
You will never unsee reserve guard Bart Eddins in his Daisy Dukes. SPECIAL "YOU WILL ONLY GET THIS IF YOU ARE OVER 36" REFERENCE: Maybe we should call him "Catherine Block"!
Starting tight end Philip Lutzenkirchen goes the Toy Story route with his Woody costume. As with the last 10 minutes of Toy Story 3, some tears for the loss of childhood innocence may need to be shed here.
This is starting defensive end Antoine Carter as Jamaican Olympic hero Usain Bolt. If Carter left anything less to the imagination, this entire blog would be designated NSFW.
Chris Humphries, a reserve linebacker, impersonating Auburn strength coach Kevin Yoxall. Publicly making fun of one's own S&C coach -- particularly for his height -- is, um, "brave." We expect Humphries to vomit from conditioning every day for the rest of the season, and it will have been earned.
Auburn center Ryan Pugh as... well, the shorts say Reno 911!'s Lieutenant Dangle, but the tie and stache say 3/4 of the cast of Super Troopers. Pick a sheriff reference and stick with it, Pugh!
Auburn kickers, as the Fruit of the Loom cast. Except for the apple. Apple's the best part, because of the apple-core hat. This will probably cost someone a starting job. Okay, that's not really cause for stripping someone of their spot on the 2-deep*.
Top score, Tigers. The "dress up as a lady" costume is a time-worn staple of Halloween, so any shock factor is usually self-imagined at best, but Eddins' "sexy" "cowgirl" is both ironically brilliant and horrifying -- especially when he lets that belly hang, as any proper big man ought to. And seriously, Humphries, yours S&C coach is authorized to make you suffer in the name of conditioning. Don't give him a reason to do it! It never ends well!
*Actually, we're told it's nothing of the sort. We apologize for the error in holiness.
