Haden showed up in South Florida on Friday sporting a Mohawk haircut. On the right side of his head is carved his number (5) next to a star. On the other side, he has BCS with a number 1 next to it.
“I got a Mohawk for the SEC Championship Game and we won that game, so then I decided to get this one,” he said. “It doesn’t guarantee a win, it’s just to show we made it to the championship game.”
Haden said a barber named Tony gave him the haircut back in Gainesville earlier in the week. The barber is known as Mr. T in the business.
When Haden was asked if he knew what BCS stands for, he said, “I really don’t know.”
Haden’s hair drew a lot of questions ” and quite a few stares ” from the reporters and others Saturday.
His coaches and teammates seem to have accepted his new look. Even Urban Meyer.
“Coach Meyer just laughed when he saw it,” Haden said.
