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
Hometown–Louisville, KY (Seneca)
Unfair comparison to NFL-er: Champ Bailey. Go get ’em, Robbie!
Most interesting thing from his bio: He has already graduated with a degree in Sociology and he is looking to get his Masters this fall…not surprisingly, he was on the SEC Academic Honor Roll last season.
Something we made up about him: His mother’s name is Margarita…no, wait, that’s true. Sweet.
Items of legitimate interest: Made five tackles last season in the victory against Vanderbilt. Also, made his first career pass breakup in the Music City Bowl last season. Transferred from Franklin College after his freshman year. Was voted as the Offensive Scout Team Player of the Year in 2006…yeah, I know, he plays defense now.
Outlook for 2008, based on light research by our minions: In the post-spring depth chart, he is second behind Trevard Lindley at cornerback, so it speaks volumes that he was able to move ahead of Shomari Moore and Ahmad Grigsby for the backup role.
