Zach Collaros' version of the "Comeback Special"

| No TrackBacks
So I checked out UC's initial bowl practice to inquire on the progress of the guy that's helped sell those No. 12 jerseys your young Bearcat fans have been wearing.

Turns out Zach Collaros is moving around pretty good and is preparing to have the pads on early next week.

To take advantage of the numerous Elvis references popular with a bowl game in Memphis, you could call this Zach's "Comeback Special", although young Zach wasn't around in 1968 when Elvis did his.

As you can see from this video, Collaros isn't exactly all "up to speed" on the Elvis trivia, but he is ready hit the town next to the muddy Mississippi, devour a rib or two and possibly deliver a few more entertaining plays for Bearcat fans.

For what it's worth, UC's medical and training staff has nursed quarterbacks back to health with success before in similar situations.

Gino Guidugli was the MVP of the Fort Worth Bowl in 2004 just a month after suffering a broken hand.  Three years later, Ben Mauk was the MVP of the Bowl in Birmingham after battling shoulder injuries that forced him out of games during his one season at UC.

Notice a trend?
