With semester exams out of the way, tis the season for transfers.
First one out at the University of Louisville is Ryan Mack, the 6-foot-5, 305-pound redshirt tackle from Memphis. He started 12 football games during his sophomore season and six games this year before losing his spot to Aaron Epps, a 6-foot-7, 285-pound redshirt junior.
Shortly thereafter, UofL’s offensive line began to show significant improvement.
Football fans should be familiar with Mack’s No. 74, frequently called out by officials for all those false starts, resulting in losses of field position, momentum, and five-yard penalties for UofL. All a matter of timing.
Next one out the door is Akoy Agau, the 6-foot-7 sophomore basketball player from Omaha by way of the Sudan. While Coach Rick Piitno is fond of players from Africa, Agau never showed much promise during his freshman year. He has seen limited action in three games this season after recovering from sports hernia surgery in July.
The rumored departure of starting guard Chris Jones, fanned by University of Kentucky huckster and bootlicker Matt Jones, turned out to be either a toal fabrication or wishful thinking on Jones’ part. Anyone who defends Matt Jones deserves him.
