The Cardinal Countdown...57 days until kickoff

#57 Finesse Middleton


Class: RS Freshman

Ht/Wt: 5-11/246

Position: Defensive Tackle

Hometown: Gadsden, Ala

Twitter: @Finesse58

Thoughts: Middleton was an early enrollee last year who we flipped from Ole Miss. (Suck on that Mr. I wear a suit to watch a football game) He actually took a redshirt last fall to work on his techniques and tighten up his smaller frame, knowing full well he wasn’t going to unseat some of the upperclassmen. The first thing that most notice about Finesse is that he’ll need to use some….what’s the word….finesse….rather than pure strength to get into the correct position. A month on Jenny Craig and this guy is Russ Smith, and that won’t work in the ACC. He played on the line during high school but it appears that Grantham has already made the move to place him at linebacker which I like a lot. With the 3-4 defense we need more depth at that position and I like him flying around the field rather than being in a three point stance. He has some speed, but he’ll need to add some muscle to get significant playing time this year. Last year I said he might be a household name by the time he graduated and I won’t back off that statement. I like what I’ve seen from him so far during practices and what the coaches are saying is almost always positive in regards to how he’s picking up the new philosophies. I look forward to seeing how he develops.

Sweet Tweet:

Not sure what it is Finesse, but that ben-gay/baby power/fungus cream combo seems to do the trick. ‘Old woman’ smell may be "stank ass" to the younger demographic like ourselves; but Old man river sure ain’t complaining, and is actually getting his fair share of the action. Evidently, nursing homes are seeing a drastic increase in binge drinking and STD’s. Seriously. You might see a fragile old woman and cover your nose, but Harold with the tennis ball walker, is making his move my man. He may be a little slow on his first step, but don’t worry, he’s making it.
