Cory Johnson says Matt Elam is like a wrecking ball

BTI is having computer issues this morning, so I’m stepping in for the 9 a.m. post. Don’t worry, he’ll be back with his at noon.¬†

He hasn’t even played a game yet, and we all love Cory Johnson. Cory charmed us with his weight loss secrets (hint: poop), and yesterday, gave reporters another great quote about fellow defensive tackle Matt Elam. Cory compared¬†Elam–or rather, Elam’s stomach–to a wrecking ball.

“When we do pass rushes, he don’t use no moves. Once he throws his stomach forward, it’s hard to get your hands on that thing. You can’t grip a stomach, so he just goes straight through everybody,” Johnson said. “That’s like a wrecking ball, somebody trying to jump in front of that…you can’t stop that.

So, he comes in like a wrecking ball? Drew Franklin, I think this calls for a photoshop…

    If someone suggests a Miley Cyrus theme for Big Matt Elam, I think I will puke.

    Why are we all applauding obesity? Sure it makes him better at football but life is more than football.

      Read up on leptin signaling and how it relates to cancer. He may be in good cardiovascular shape but that isn’t the end all measurement of health.

      I don’t usually like to bring this into play but I’m a pediatric oncologist at Markey Cancer center so I feel a know a little on the subject.

    UKGrad, Elam is probably in better shape than 90% of the KSR readers. Google Jordan Gross (just retired from the panthers) when you are not eating like a football player, you can lose it. Unfortunately a lot don’t stop eating.

    I dare you to watch this clip of Marcus Lee standing next to his volleyball teammates (:23 second mark), and not laugh.

    Cory has got to be a future writer for KSR. He is bringing UK football news in the most ridiculous manner possible.

      SEC Network needs to sign him up now so if the NFL doesn’t come calling he’s their new color guy. How amazing would that be?
