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.
Matt Stafford probably doesn’t like Lindley, either
Boring, Obligatory Vitals
Hometown–Hiram, GA (Hiram)
Unfair comparison to NFL-er: Charles Woodson. A lock-down corner in the mold of Deion Sanders, who’s not afraid of tackling…like Deion Sanders.
Most interesting fact from his media guide bio: His major is Art Studio.
Something we made up about him: Gets antsy and upset when walking through post-game tailgate football games because so many drunk idiots allow their drunk idiot friends too large a cushion on 4th and 1 completion. They’re just gonna run a five yard stop!
Items of legitimate interest: Freshman All-American in many publications; all over the board on All-SEC teams, both from last year and this season. Had a game-sealing pick his freshman year against UGA, as well as big ones against LSU, Louisville, and UT. He also had a huge fumble return for a TD against Arkansas.
Outlook for 2008, based on light research by our minions: Will match up with the best of what the opponent has to offer at wide receiver.
