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
40– classified information
Year– Redshirt Freshman
Hometown– LaGrange, Ga.
Unfair comparison to NFL-er: He’s either Seattle’s QB Matt Hasselbeck or WR Logan Payne. Get it? Burden is like a hassle or a pain or…nevermind. These are getting rough.
Most interesting fact from his media guide bio: He was a three-year letterman in basketball.
Something we made up about him: Watches both episodes of Viva Laughlin before each game.
Items of legitimate interest: “Crazy Legs” Burden, which is what I will be calling him despite it sounding like a flesh-eating disease, was a late addition to the redshirt squad last year and was even rumored to have locked down the nickelback position during camp.
Outlook for 2008, based on light research by our minions: He’ll probably play quite a bit, but that’s not really important. What is important is that he’s responsible for two YouTube clips of high quality.
