The Cardinal Countdown: 38 Days Until Kickoff

38 Days...just like the 38 points the Cards scored on Kentucky last year.

#38 Chris Miele

Class: RS Junior

Ht/Wt: 6-2/190

Position: Wide Receiver

Hometown: Louisville, KY (Product of Manual High School)

Twitter: N/A

Thoughts: There is one thing I know about Chris that is 100% accurate. The man knows how to position himself on the field. Route running, you ask? No, no, no.

Camera position.

I bet it would take me two hands to count the number of times I saw Chris running up to Lamar, Radcliff or a wideout right after they scored last year to pat them on the helmet. The ultimate cheerleader….and a minor camera hog (not judging). I just rewatched the bowl game last week and I bet I counted 5 Chris Miele sightings and the man didn’t record a stat. Bravo young man, well played.

In regards to actual “footballing”, Chris is a local kid with some good size and decent hands. While mostly confined to the practice squad Chris did record some stats two seasons ago as a freshman and I can point to two or three games were he may have a solid opportunity to grab a ball or three late in the 4th this year as well.

Sweet Tweet: No twitter for Chris so let’s take a peek at some of those Music City Bowl highlights…

Going in for the high five after the first TD...

Jumping on Lamar after the long TD run...

Directing the Gatorade bath after the Cards sealed the victory...

Better camera presence than Clooney and Hanks combined.
