Iowa's C.J. Beathard cuts hair for a good cause


C.J. Beathard is now The Man at quarterback for Iowa. But he will no longer have The Hair.

Yes, Beathard's signature look -- his long, flowing blonde locks that earned him the nickname "Sunshine" -- is now gone. But at least it's for an excellent cause.

Wigs for Kids is a nonprofit group that donates custom-made wigs to children who have lost their hair because of cancer treatments. Each wig is valued at $1,800 and is made completely from human hair.

So while we'll miss seeing Beathard's golden mane streaming out from under his helmet, we can't help but salute him for the effort. And if you've read this story, you know he's a fascinating guy for a lot more than just his hair.
