The defensive unit of the 1975 University of Kentucky football team called themselves The Dirty Dozen, in reference to a movie about a daring raid behind enemy lines in World War II, staring Lee Marvin and former Cleveland Browns great Jim Brown. In early October the unit, then ranked number 8 in the nation defensively, decided to pose for a photo in military gear, with the help of J&H Army Surplus.
