Former Kentucky quarterback Jared Lorenzen is in no way a small dude. He’s 6-foot-4, and is listed at 320 pounds.

After learning of the new NCAA food rules Jared "Hefty Lefty" Lorenzen weighed in via Twitter.

Few college athletes would have been more excited to play under what some are calling “the Shabazz Napier rule” than former Kentucky quarterback Jared Lorenzen.
Lorenzen, a cult hero at UK who recently returned to the national spotlight as an indoor football star, weighed in at more than 260 pounds during his collegiate days — a number that has since grown north of 300.
Thanks in part to UConn guard Shabazz Napier complaining that he goes to bed “starving” at night while college sports are bringing in millions of dollars, the NCAA’s legislative council approved a proposal on Tuesday that will expand the meal allowance for all athletes. Under the new rules, athletes will have access to unlimited meals […]
