University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Short and Insufficient Profile: Craig McIntosh

During the slow and insipid summer of 2008, former KSR wordsmith Evan Hilbert profiled each and every member of the University of Kentucky football team. Though his knowledge was sparse and his research was far from thorough, Evan’s short and insufficient player profiles were an integral part of Kentucky’s success that season. UK finished with seven wins, including the opener at Louisville and a 25-19 victory in the Liberty Bowl. Kentucky hasn’t won a bowl game since. Let’s bring back that magic…

Weight: 200 lbs.

Nickname We Gave Him

Craig Automatictosh

Something You Didn’t Know About Him

He enrolled at Kentucky as a member of the ROTC program and did not play football as a freshman. He tried out for the team in August of his second year on campus, the equivalent of being a redshirt freshman.

Something We Made Up About Him

He once hit the left upright on a 79-yard field goal in high school.

With the wind in his face.

Items of Legitimate Interest

McIntosh played in all 12 games last season and led the team in scoring with 56 points. He converted 12-of-14 field goals and 21-of-22 extra points; made seven-consecutive field goals, the third-longest streak in school history; and had a career-best three field goals vs. Mississippi State. His season long was 48 yards in the win over Ole Miss.

He’s entering his third season as the starting placekicker.

    ‘and led the team in scoring with 56 points. He converted 12-of-14 field goals and 21-of-22 extra points;’

    What’s up with that math, Mr. Franklin? Thanks for the short, insufficient and incorrect profile

    Lex Cath wannabees?

    No thanks

    LCA prefers to not have its program on the KHSAA radar constantly for recruiting, cheating, finding jobs for out of state kids parents so they can move here etc.

    No thanks

    Dude totally cheated in my physiology class and admitted it our professor after he got caught (in front of the whole class), going even further by telling the prof nothing was going to happen to him. Two weeks later, he was kicking in the season opener. I’ll bleed blue forever, but that’s just stupid.

    Lexington Catholic ≠ Lexington Christian. The most obvious difference is that Lexington Christian is a protestant school. Protestants and Catholics are different in the fact that protestants go to hell. Ask the Pope if you don’t believe me.
