Short and Insufficient Profile: Jorge Gonzalez

OK, so, during the dragging, sweaty, uncomfortable months of summer, we flippantly mentioned that we would be profiling every player on the team. It will only be fun and worthwhile, we decided, if we were both informative AND funny. Well, it would be really fun if we were drunk the entire time, but that’s neither here nor there. Thus, for these ten weeks leading up to the UL game, we will have at least one profile a day. We hope you enjoy these as much as we enjoyed the idea of doing them, but not the actual task. Oh, and we see the egregious “that’s what she said” in the headline.We’d also like to use this italicized space to apologize to the families of the players whose last names end in ‘A’ or ‘B’ because these early ones might suck a little.

I don’t think this is the same guy…

Boring, Obligatory Vitals






Hometown–Tampa, FL (Catholic)

Unfair comparison to NFL-er: His high school coached some other great centers. Among them, LSU All-American Nacho Albergamo.

Most interesting fact from his media guide bio: His first name is pronounced “George.”

Something we made up about him: Thinks that I kind of rushed this one. Well, you’re right, Jorge.

Items of legitimate interest: Played in only three games last season behind starter Eric Scott. Strong center with great footwork, Gonzalez chose the Cats over UAB, UConn, and Purdue.

Outlook for 2008, based on light research by our minions: Sits atop the depth chart as the starting center.
