Few things give a sports blogger greater pleasure than a team roster that lists personal tidbits on players. Join us after the jump for a bowl prediction based entirely on bio supremacy. UCLA versus Brigham Young. Tonight, 8 PM, ESPN.
THE CASE FOR UCLA
OT Brian Abraham and TE Nate Chandler: Hobbies include “playing sports”.
QB McLeod Bethel Thompson’s full name: McLeod John Baltazar Bethel-Thompson.
WR Brandon Breazell: Spends his free time “riding”.
TB Ryan Carew and C Aaron Meyer: Chess players!
LB Reggie Carter: “Admires the passion with which the NFL’s Ray Lewis plays the game.”
C Chris Joseph: Hobbies include “music appreciation”, and there’s his honor roll explanation: “He has earned a spot on the Dean’s List (3.50 GPA or higher) in all but one quarter (he did not have 12 units of grades since one course was pass/not pass) and has had just one grade lower than an A- (B+) in his academic career.” He’s also a geography major. That’s like coloring maps, right?
FS Aaron Ware: Hobbies include collecting rocks and insects and landscape design.
QB Osaar Rasshan: Has a brother named Imhotep, which is also the name of the mummy in Stephen Sommers’ 1999 instant classic remake.
THE CASE FOR BYU:
DB Aaron Attig: “An accomplished clogger.”
