Short and Insufficient Profile: Ross Bogue

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.

This Ross Bogue is V.P. of Boeing.

Boring, Obligatory Vitals

Height–  6’5″

Weight–  240

40–  4.78

Year–  Junior

Position–  TE

Hometown– Suwanee, Ga. (North Gwinnett)

Unfair comparison to NFL-er:  Well, there aren’t any Bogue’s in the NFL, so he is probably the most like Arizona DT Ross Kolodziej or Redskins OT Ross Tucker.

Most interesting fact from his media guide bio:  As a redshirt freshman in 2005, he was named Scout Team Player of the Week once.  Picked UK over South Carolina and the team that loses in the national championship game every year.

Something we made up about him:  Devastated during the 1995-96 NBA season when the Charlotte Hornets traded Alonzo Mourning and Larry Johnson, ending any title aspirations for Tyrone “Muggsy” Bogues, who he had always dreamed was his biological father.

Items of legitimate interest:  High school teammate of E.J. Adams and named 2nd Team All-State in Georgia.

Outlook for 2008, based on light research by our minions:  The battle for the starting TE spot will be between Bogue, T.C. Drake and Maurice Grinter, who moves over from fullback.  The three have combined in their careers for 5 catches for 22 yards.  Bogue will see the field for sure, but it remains to be seen how much.
