They are Bucknell Football. They are those guys.
There are a few in every group—the clowns who take it upon themselves to spice up a lame, mandatory event.

Deadspin’s Sean Newell spotted the pictures of the ragtag troupe, which had enough mustaches, mullets and raised eyebrows on hand to start a stock car race.
Let’s begin with wide receiver Brandon Farrell, who looks like he just hot-boxed a tanning bed.
Here’s Troy “You talking to me?” Glenn.
C.J. Williams enjoys yards after contact, fast lawn mowers and Aaron Rodgers cosplay.
Louis Taglianetti will remove your restrictor plate and wax your chest for a nominal fee.
Ben Schumacher can make an orange mocha Frappuccino from scratch.
Jimmy King misses summer lovin’ and having a blast.
He is Clayton Hoffmaster, earl of sandwiches.

No matter what happens this season, you are those guys, and no one can take that away from you.
