Western Kentucky Strength Coaches break paddles over each other to psych up team

Before the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers took on the Navy Midshipmen, WKU strength coaches Joe Miday and Scott Wilks broke paddles over each other to psych up the team.  The funniest part is that it looks like only a handful of players saw them break the paddles over each other and the team was already pretty riled up before they did it.  The Hilltoppers went on to beat the Midshipmen...

Western Kentucky Hilltoppers unveil new uniforms

These new jerseys for the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers are actually pretty sweet.  My favorite part is the university seal in the number, they are the only team in the country that has something that unique.  The font of the numbers and writing is a great choice, and so is the decision to go to the chrome helmet full time.  It looks like the Hilltoppers have three different uniform...
