Fashion Offense: Mike Rozier at the Heisman Awards

There is no greater honor in college football than to win the Heisman Trophy. It is an award given to legends of the game who are never forgotten. At this year’s ceremony, held on Saturday, former winners lined the stage, demonstrating just a part of the elite fraternity of Heisman membership. It’s not an award just for that year, but for the ages.

This year’s winner, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, made history by becoming the first freshman to win the award. But it is Mike Rozier, a former running back who won the Heisman in 1983 for his feats at the University of Nebraska, who stole the show.

Rozier knew that, once again, he would be in the spotlight. And he wasn’t about to let the opportunity pass him by. He needed to look the part.

Rozier rocked a suit that was plaid on the top half of the blazer, including the sleeves, then turned to a solid mustard brown on the bottom half of the blazer and the pants. Party on the top, business on the bottom, perhaps? The look was topped off with a hat that oddly fit the unusual getup perfectly.

The suit was absolutely outrageous and warrants a Fashion Offense but look at how happy Rozier looks. We may not have thought he looked good but he certainly did. That’s got to count for something.
