Husky fans have resoundingly chosen the 'Afro Puffs' hairstyle as the winner of Pick Paul's Pic, a two-week contest in which visitors to gohuskies.com voted on which photo of senior wide receiver Paul Arnold they wished to appear in Washington's gameday football programs.
The 'Afro Puffs' hairstyle, described by Dennis Dodd, CBSSportsline's national college football writer, as "an unholy cross between Busta Rhymes and Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz," received nearly 61 percent of the more than 5,000 total votes cast. Arnold's more traditional 'Afro' style garnered 21 percent of the votes, while his 'Braids' received 18 percent.
The winning photo will run in Washington's 2002 gameday football programs, distributed at each home Husky game. Fans can also view the program online by clicking the "Home Game Program" link from the football page at gohuskies.com.
Thank you to all those who voted!
