Short and Insufficient Profile: Josh Minton

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.

Boring, Obligatory Vitals

Height–6’3”

Weight–254

40–N/A

Year–Sophomore

Position–Defensive End

Hometown–Somerset, KY (Southwestern)

Unfair comparison to NFL-er: Mike Minter. A stretch, sure, but hey, at least they both play defense.

Most interesting fact from his media guide bio: Named a high school All-American by a few publications.

Something we made up about him: Once engaged in a beatboxing battle with Justin Timberlake—and won!

Items of legitimate interest: Was lost last season to injury when he blew out his knee during spring practce. First team All-Stater in high school.

Outlook for 2008, based on light research by our minions: Should be a worthy backup to Jarmon at defensive end. D-line depth! Huzzah!
