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–Henderson, KY (Henderson County)
Unfair comparison to NFL-er: Tim Couch. Just because in the picture above, he reminds me of Tim Couch. It must be the number. Also, his cousin Luke Petitgout currently plays for the Bucs.
Most interesting fact from his media guide bio: Named player of the year in the state of Kentucky both his junior and senior year of high school. Did not win Mr. Football, however (Micah Johnson).
Something we made up about him: Rightfully won the “golden fiddle” after proving that he was better than both Johnny and the band of demons.
Items of legitimate interest: Only played in one varsity game last year after injuring his shoulder in a JV game. Has great size for a quarterback.
Outlook for 2008, based on light research by our minions: Fidler, though behind both Pulley and Hartline in the quarterback race, may play a major role in who is the starter. If he can prove to be a worthy backup to Hartline, perhaps the coaching staff will be less leery about moving Pulley around a bit.
