Hangin’ with Kenny Cooper. You all remember Kenny Cooper, right? Big dude, plays center, blocks well and doesn’t afraid of anything? Well, if you’re a fan, I’ve got some exciting news for you: he’s baaaaaaaack!
Cooper’s return’s impact on the rest of the offensive line has yet to be fully known, but snaps with him at center would likely move Jahaziel Lee back to LG and give Zach Quinney some rest. Anyway, he’s back and we should all celebrate before the curse inevitably strikes again.
A man of many names. Jordan Mason is the once and future starter at B-back for the Yellow Jackets, but you all remember he used to be Jordan Ponchez-Mason, right? What happened to that, anyway?
Yeah, so, uh, it appears Ponchez is Mason’s middle name, and the hyphenated double last name was the result of a clerical error. So nothing like Jabari Hunt-no-longer-of-Days. How an error like that lasted so long is beyond me, but hey, better late than never, right?
Keeping the Maine thing the Maine thing. Georgia Tech wasn’t the only team UCF canceled on last year — the University of Maine also lost out on contest vs. the Knights. With the tables turned this year, the Black Bears offered to host a make-up game. To me that sounds like a great opportunity to visit a vastly underrated state (seriously, Maine is great), but the Knights want none of it. Probably because they’re a bunch of chickens. Whassamatter, UCF? You scaaaaaaaared?
