Shredded National Championship referee is shredded

Shredded. Ripped. Jacked. Swole.
Big 12 referee Mike Defee is all of these things. The game official for the National Championship between Alabama and Clemson stole a bit of the football game’s attention when, calling a penalty, his very large biceps got the notice of viewers and internet users on Twitter.

Of course, many people made the quick connection between Defee and NFL referee Ed Hochuli, another noted official who probably lifts weights.
Anyhow, the internet was very impressed by Defee’s treetrunk-sized arms.

**comments more on the referee's jacked arms than actual football game**

Following the coin toss, we’ll have the ceremonial chugging of a spinach can by this referee

Ed Hochuli is watching this referee and shaking his head and saying "hell naw." And doing 100 push-ups.

Yes, the referee definitely needs a large shirt. The smedium look isn't quite working.
