  1. "Work" is a relative term

    Too bad Lorenzen is out of eligibility, we need some more run-stoppers.

    If Elam is pushing 370, then Lorenzen has to be 400.

    Elam is listed as 6’7″. Jared was always listed as 6’4″. It doesn’t look like 3″ difference to me. Camera angle maybe? Sorta like holding a fish out in front of you to make it look bigger.

      J-load is in flip flops not 3″ heels. your argument is invalid

    Just amazing we had a beast like Jared in the Backfield. Guy could bring it and sling it!

    Elam looks more like the quarterback between the two of them. J-Lo is a favorite; I hope he takes care of himself.

    Jared should have been a lineman. The guy is a great QB, still say he should’ve been a lineman.
    Someone needs to promote Jared, maybe Subway.

      Agreed, with his size and agility Jay-Load would have been an All-Pro NFL lineman.

    That moment when you make a guy who weighs 370 look slender……………

    Does Jared ever wear his NY Giants championship ring?

    I know both these guys are tall but w/o the average joe in the shot for scale, its hard to tell just how big. If u didnt know them, u might just see a couple 5’8″/5’9″ Big Dawg t-shirt type guys who where athletic shorts year round because its an easy fit with a flare of irony given they’re most likely not into athletics.

    Never will forget when Brooks’ first offensive coordinator (forget his name; came from K State I believe) had J Lo line up as a WR

      Ron Hudson I believe his name. One of very few or maybe the only bad hire on Brooks’ staffs.

    You know, we all have our issues and I’m sure JLO is fully aware of his, so I’m just going to say I loved watching every minute of him while wearing the blue and white!! Such a great QB and a good solid person. Go Big Blue!

    All bigness is not the same. They are similar in weight, but Elam is in a fairly normal range for his frame. Just look at his face, then look at Lorenzen’s face – it looks like it’s being swallowed up by another face. one has a frame to support that much weight, the other is just carrying a bunch of extra non-functional weight. Not that his frame is small by any stretch.. its just not elam sized

    Way to go Mrs.T T. Make fun of one of the legends of UK Football. Jared is one of the nicest guys around and is always happy to help out KSR. This post is in extremely poor taste. Smh…

      How was I making fun of him? Jared himself said on the radio that when they took the picture, he was puffing himself up to look bigger than Elam, and even angled it so he was in front. Chill out cub scout.

      Lorenzen’s situation really isn’t funny at all anymore, guy really needs to get some help

      I am a little worried about Jared – what do they call it, type A …..

    Too bad Subway already has a Jared.

    Elam looks downright dainty next to J-Load

    I bet Jared could still fling it around the yard though.

    which one is Jared?

    Elam’s socks are now wet. That would drive me nuts.

      Congrats…you and I must be the only ones that were bothered by the fact that Elam is standing in water in his socks…

      Ever heard of sweat? Probably didn’t even realize he was standing in water.

    Why isn’t Jared on the coaching staff?
    Pro experience, Kentucky boy, legend at the University etc.
    Guess you have to have coaching experience. Didn’t he help out some high school teams for a while?
    Who would be a better ambassador than him?
    C’mon Mitch, throw out some more money!

    I’ll say it, Lorenzen looks like sh*t. Get it together buddy.

      you’re 33 years, man. some ppl are genuinely (& should be) worried about your health.

      I love how everybody wants to talk shit about Jared. I saw him at the PGA and he looked and sounded happy. So what if he is not in shape!! He seems like a great guy as well. I know a lot of “fit” looking people that are unhappy or make everyone around them unhappy. I also know plenty that are [email protected]^hats too. He can live his life his way, if that is fat and happy there are worse ways to live. Most people with the negative comments on here never were close the the athlete that Jared was nor as good a person, please get over yourself.

    They are both too fat… need to lose weight and get more fit… and I am a fat man so I know of what I speak.
