Great Wyoming football photoshops of 2013


College football recruiting has taken a strange turn this year with the use of photoshops, and Wyoming has stepped up its game as well.

The photoshops all started innocently enough, as the Wyoming staff created several photos of states with famous Cowboy football players, such as this one of California and former Cowboy and current San Diego Charger Malcom Floyd:


Slowly but surely, though, things began to change. #ThinkWYO began finding its way into real pictures, like this one of Sacramento:


And then other things began to change:




Is this a case of wilderness madness taking its toll on the Cowboy coaching staff? Is the condition exacerbated by altitude?


Finally, Pistol Pete, the Wyoming mascot, makes his long-awaited appearance, in which he wins the Miller Park sausage race because sure, that's where most of the recruits are anyway:



What's next for these madcap photoshoppers from the remote mountainous interior? I'm not sure any of us can say for sure, but I do know one thing: It may not be today, and it may not be tomorrow, but one day, Joker Phillips will take a wrong turn down an alley on a recruiting trip and be confronted with the monstrous visage of Pistol Pete, flag and pistol brandished. I just hope he's ready.
