#71 Chris Acosta
Class: RS Senior
Position: Offensive Line
Hometown: Miami, Fla
Thoughts: Lets all welcome Chris back to the 2014 Louisville Cardinals…again. Back in January Chris made it known that he would be leaving the football program, even though he still had a year of eligibility left, not long after the hire of Petrino and with the coaching carousel in full swing. I have no idea what prompted Chris to make that decision, but ultimately it was his to make and I wished him well.
Enter the new staff, new recruits and new philosophy and Chris changed his mind and decided he wanted to be a part of the ACC action. Acosta is now back on board and could fight for some significant time up front with Pedro. Chris’ experience could benefit our O-line depth greatly as Chris actually played in 10 games last season. He performed well when his number was called due to various injuries (Pedro and Nacho) making 6 starts, which included the bowl game victory over Miami. In my opinion you can never be too deep at O-line. Those guys get beat up quite a bit over the course of 12 or 13 games and having a solid two deep rotation is vital. Glad to have Chris back.
Game of Thrones— Chris Acosta (@ChicoAcosta) April 6, 2014
I’m the worst at picking successful TV shows. I see a preview, think something looks good, I get emotionally invested in the story and then BAM. Cancelled. (Basically the same as every girlfriend I ever had in high school) While this in itself is depressing, the other half of this battle is that while I’m filling up my mind with crap that evidently no one else watches, I’m missing out on all the good stuff. I’ve never seen one second of ‘Game of Thrones’. Not a single scene of ‘The Wire’. I got about two episodes deep on ‘Breaking Bad’ and I just now started ‘House of Cards’. I know, I know, my life is hollow and incomplete. Although, if anyone is interested in what Molly has been up lately on ‘Bubble Guppies’ I’ll be happy to fill you in.
We’ve all got 71 days to kill before football starts and life goes back to normal, so what should I, and the rest of my program deprived Cloids be diving into this summer? Fire away!
