We’re only about 24 hours away from the Liberty Bowl and the excitement has never been higher…probably. But, when the Cats take the field against East Carolina in Memphis tomorrow, the main story will be the return of Mike Hartline after being demoted to a backup earlier in the season. Hartline had a very strange year that included being SEC Offensive Player of the Week, getting benched before returning against Tennessee, and the infamous “other people aren’t making plays” comment. But, according those around the team, the few extra weeks of practice have given Hartline the extra reps he’s needed to get a rhythm with the wideouts and he’s looking solid.
Hartline for Heisman in ’09? Or is it too early for that?
