Michigan Wolverines running back Vincent Smith is best known as the undersized player that was annihilated by South Carolina Gamecocks star defensive end Jadeveon Clowney in the 2013 Outback Bowl and he is taking advantage of his unfortunate fame. Smith is turning his national humiliation into a form of profit now that he is finished with his college eligibility.

Smith is selling photos of the hit that he autographed for $60 a piece

“(Smith) was doing a show at Gibralter (famous Michigan trade center/flea market/card show building) and signed 10 for the public and then signed some for my dad,” a person told Busted Coverage.

That’s one way to turn being on the wrong end of one of the most devastating hits in college football into a positive.

Unfortunately for Clowney, the guy he destroyed is able to make money off of the photo, but Clowney cannot since he is still an active student athlete. You gotta love the NCAA.

Here is one of the signed photos that Smith signed and sold, via Busted Coverage:

And for those that didn’t see or do not remember the hit, enjoy it’s brutality:

    Still one of the greatest plays/hits I’ve ever seen. Glad a Bama running back wasn’t on the receiving end of that one.

    That video just isn’t complete without the previous play included which gave Michigan an unearned first down.
