A buddy of mine is on center stage tomorrow afternoon at Tennessee.
Cincinnati QB Zach Collaros and I are from the same small town in eastern Ohio. I am quite a bit older than him, but I've known him since he was a little kid throwing the football around the neighborhood.
He is a great guy and an unbelievable player.
Check it out...
That was on ESPN a couple of years ago on their Thursday night game. Tony Pike was injured the series before and Zach, as a sophomore, was thrust into the game against a very good USF team. The results speak for themselves.
He has been the starting QB for the Bearcats the last two seasons and was the Big East Player of the Year as a junior.
Tomorrow is probably the biggest game of his collegiate career. He threw for four TDs in their opener and, now, he is going into that massive stadium at Tennessee as one of the top QBs in the nation and against a favored SEC team.
Anyway, let's do this sh!t, Zach.
