Meet Nick Rose.
He’s a junior placekicker on the University of Texas football team entering his third season as the Longhorns’ primary kickoff specialist. But that’s not why we’re talking about him.
We’re talking about Rose because of this photo, which was tweeted late Monday night by USA Today’s Paul Myerberg and quickly made its way around the sports blogosphere.

That’s a strong headshot, to say the least, and one that gets even better when given the inevitable Lance Stephenson treatment.

Rose makes a valiant bid for the top spot in the college football hair power rankings, we’re still giving the edge to Nevada’s Brock Hekking, who trotted out this glorious blond mullet last season.

Oh wait, he’s still got it:
The mullet is alive and well with MWC best DL Brock Hekking of Nevada http://t.co/LKhs2WV9Bp—
