The sheen has come off Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck.
He’s still the Heisman frontrunner and he’s still a good bet for the No. 1 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, but he’s no longer the clean-cut poster boy for college athletics.
In fact, he looks like he spent his summer off the grid in Montana living off the land.
Luck showed up for Pac 12 media day sporting a thick beard and his best attempt at an afro. And by afro, we mean the scraggily, greasy kind that white dudes grow when they smoke too much weed.
We don’t know if Luck has been smoking weed or living in the wilderness Grizzly Adams-style, but Tim Tebow he’s not.
Then again, we couldn’t tolerate another fool scribbling Bible verses on his eye black anyway. So this is obviously for the best.
Speaking of Denver Broncos‘ quarterbacks. Kyle “Neckbeard” Orton would be proud.
The last great Stanford quarterback, John Elway, probably not so much.
