Unfortunately for the Crimson Tide, their 2012 BCS National Championship trophy was shattered in an accident. The trophy, won in the controversial rematch between LSU and Alabama was accidentally knocked off a display case by a current players father. Jeff Purinton, spokesman for the Alabama Athletic Department, confirmed that the trophy breaking was in fact an accident. He also divulged that the trophy cost nearly $30,000 to to replace. According to reports, the trophy was on dispay in the Mal Moore Athletic Facility as part of the festivities for the Crimson Tide’s spring football game Saturday in Tuscaloosa, Ala. He says the man stumbled on a rug that was under the trophy display.

Purinton also added in that the school is currently seeking a replacement for the trophy.

Sadly, this isn’t the first time a BCS trophy has been destroyed, Florida State had two trophies stolen back in 2004, and Floridas trophy was broken back in 2006 in a similar incident to the won in Bama.

Of course we have to poke a little bit of fun at the Crimson Tide, check out a video of the Stanley Cup breaking.
