The Cardinal Countdown...74 days till kickoff

#74 Ryan Mack


Class:RS Sophomore

Ht/Wt: 6-5/319

Position: Offensive Line

Hometown: Memphis, Tenn

Twitter: @R_MACK74

Thoughts: Ryan played in all 13 games last year and looks to repeat that effort this coming season. That's right folks...Return of The Mack. (Summer 97, look it up) Ryan has the versatility to move around on the line, although it appeared his natural position last season was at right tackle. Currently sitting behind Jamon Brown at Right Tackle on the Depth Chart, don't be surprised to see him slide into a guard position if someone doesn't do their job. Ryan is big man who has the skills to be a starter somewhere along that line. Charlie is finally getting his guys into the rotation and though most would agree they might be athletically superior, they have some big shoes to fill from the loss of Kupper and Mario. I like their chances...look for the O-line to take a big step forward this season.

While in theory this is 100% correct....I seem to remember that anytime one of friends got hurt it suddenly became absolutely hilarious. Sure, a broken limb or head trauma, for some reason, tends to put a damper on the laughter, but minor injuries...all fair game.


#83 Ryan Hubbell


Class: Senior

Ht/Wt: 6-5/227

Position: Tight End

Hometown: Marion, Iowa

Twitter: @RyanHubbell

Thoughts: I'm excited about the group of tight ends we have this season. I touched on it briefly in the Zeke Pike recap but this has been a real thin area for the Cards a for a few seasons. No disrespect to Nate Nord, but Hubbell was brought in as a JUCO transfer for a reason. With Florida transfer Christian, along with Hubbell, Pike, Towbridge and even Bowles listed at TE this position is getting solidified quickly. Hubbell had a pretty solid season last year pulling in 14 receptions for 239 yards. The big one came against Temple as he hauled in a 20-25 pass from Teddy and took it the distance for a 72 yard touchdown while showcasing some speed. I wouldn't be surprised to see Ryan's numbers stay about the same with the addition of Christian and the deep WR core, but I know his presence on the field will have a much greater impact than last year.

I'd say the odds of getting the tie back on the bread when I'm done are about 50/50. If it's a fairly new loaf, I'll give it a shot, I have an open mind. But, if it's beyond the half way point, not a chance. That loaf is getting spun like a top and the left over bag is getting tucked underneath. Then it goes in the pantry....not the Fridge. You fridge people are out of your mind. Cold bread? Come on, you're better than that.
