The quest for full Orange knowledge continues. If you're feeling nostalgic, hit it here to chow down on some meaty profiles.

While we're on the subject of chowing down, Kimmel Dining Hall and Late Night Drunkards Emporium will be open in a month and change. 

Get your mind off the Burger King/TacoBell/KFC craving by reading up on #42, Shane Kimmel (see what I did there?)

Position: Fullback

Year: Junior

Height: 6'1"

2010 Stats: Not too much from Shane. He hasn't appeared in a single game since coming to Syracuse.

2011 Projections: Not too much to go off here, folks. Shane's a junior, so maybe he's due to see some PT. But according to the holy manuscript that is the Post-Spring Depth Chart, Kimmel is in a battle for third-string fullback behind Adam Harris and Tombe Kose. That's not an enviable position to be in. 

How'd He Get Here?: Something tells me Mr. Kimmel didn't have much of a choice in selecting a place for higher education. His uncle Jaime played at SU in the late 80's before playing two seasons as a Los Angeles Raider. His other uncle, Jerry, played a few seasons for the New York Giants after Syracuse. His cousin is former SU defensive end Jared Kimmel.

His dad? You guessed it, Colgate. But Jon Kimmel played for the Eagles and Redskins, and that makes his son a super-legacy.

What'd Scouts/Rivals Say?: Scouts had two stars for Kimmel. Not to be outdone, Rivals gave Kimmel four half-stars

What Does Doug Marrone Think? I got nothing.

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Sean found this nugget back in the last write up, but it's worth another look because it's from 1983.

Let Us Getta Good Look Atchya: Crummy video quality, but high school highlights are high school highlights.
