Since he first started covering the NFL Draft for ESPN back in 1984, Mel Kiper Jr. has been known for two things: the Big Board and his big hair. The football expert has always rocked what can only be described as a slicked-back blowout that makes him a spitting image of the Baltimore Raven’s logo:

Unfortunately, nothing lasts forever, as Kiper proved when he appeared on SportsCenter today in a segment with David Lloyd rocking a new haircut for the first time in over three decades. For The Win posted a video of the ESPN analyst debuting his new ‘do, and you’ll want to brace yourself before hitting play:


Kiper explained that his cousin Dennis was the man responsible for his new identity, saying:

“He’s a professional. I wanted it short. I said, ‘Do whatever it takes to get it so David Lloyd would not have an issue with it.’ And, hey, 35 years at ESPN, David, time has come where you can finally see my ears.”

Damn you, Dennis. Damn you straight to hell.


Connor Toole is a Senior Editor at BroBible based in Brooklyn, NY who embodies more of the stereotypes associated with the borough than he's comfortable with. Frequently described as "freakishly tall," he once used his 6'10" frame to sneak in the NBA Draft before walking around the streets of NYC masquerading as the newest member of the Utah Jazz. Unfortunately, that wasn't enough to land him a contract, so he was forced to settle for writing on the internet for a living instead. If you're mad about something he wrote, be sure that any angry tweets you send note the similarity between his last name and a popular insult, as no one has ever done that before.
