We're 50 deep in the Orange-man saga, and what better way to celebrate that than with an SU two-fer! But before you advance, click here to check out the damage we've done so far.
Now sit down my friends, and try not to shutter
As I tell you the tale of the star-crossed Carl Cutler.
Position: Fullback/Tight End
Weight: 240 pounds
Hometown: Norwich, VT
High School: Hanover (NH)
I'll tap my inner Bill Shakespeare to tell the Carl Cutler tale. And I'll apologize in advance because my Iambic Pentameter is a little rusty...
Here is the bad news, my friends, in small doses
Cutler fell in spring practice. The doctor's prognosis?
A torn left ACL and meniscus, you know
The 2010 season for Cutler went so:
No games/accrued stats but a chance to return
A fire within his belly doth burn.
2011 seemed so far away
For Cutler, it'd be his next chance to play
The bad news won't stop, here is the word
Cutler fell once more in Spring practice the third
Rehabbing his left knee so long in vain
The converted tight end felt familiar pain
2011 won't occur for this gent
Blame his anterior cruciate ligament
Jailed once again in an injury prison
Cutler awaits his senior season
How'd He Get Here?:
To Cutler, it was never a contest
The high school tight end liked the Orange best
Boston College and UConn must feel like beggars
Losing a battle to the man we call Greggers.
Sideline time is something any player abhors
But few step up to be veteran mentors
"I was on the sideline. I was there helping as much as I could," he said. "As an older player I was able to bring along some of the younger players, and be there with advice."
Scout.com, recruitng czars
Gave Carl Cutler just two stars.
And though I jest in rhyme for fun
I give his left knee only one.
Doug Marrone Said: It doesn't seem right to poem-up a HCDM quote. From the little I've found, Doug called Carl's injury "devastating." And that's true--Beckett Wales was gone for whatever period of time, and they need a hard-nosed blocker like Cutler to step up. Next man up, Nick Provo.
Interesting Nugget O'Interest:
Back with the poems, in a different style
And with some ironic parlance
Carl Cutler has been injured a while
Yet majors in health science
Let Us Getta Good Look Atchya:
Well congrats, you've made it to the end of the poetry profile. And like the poetry unit in English class everyone hated, what kind of teacher would I be if I didn't reward you with a video? And Carl's high school highlights beat out Dead Poets Society any day of the week.

I know I speak for all of us at TNIAAM when I say good luck with rehab #2, Carl.
