I can't believe it, but Doug Beaumont will be a senior this season. You may think that he's only played three years, and you'd be partially right: Krag-the-Redshirt-Burner for some reason had him playing as a true freshman, mostly on special teams. My memory is that he had a JETSWEEP! in the 4th Quarter against Murray State....hold on, let me check that....yup:

|Doug Beaumont rush for a loss of 2 yards to the MurrS 29.
Incredibly, that was his only carry of 2007, and he did not catch a pass. I think he should apply for a hardship waiver and get another season. Yikes.
Anyway, Doug still has not scored a touchdown in his subsequent two seasons, and he had one called back last year on a penalty. In 2010, with the new offense, Doug should get plenty of opportunities. And to take advantage, here's what Doug is doing:
Up bright and early to workout its like a everyday job
This was at like 5 or 6 AM, if my math is correct.
He later updated:
Stadium all day puttin in work
Put in work, Doug. Put it in. I really hope the first play of the season involves some trickeration and Doug streaking down the sideline with the ball, outracing the UK secondary for his first career touchdown.
