Multiple injuries have taken their toll on the playing time for Cincinnati quarterback Brendon Kay. Thankfully for him, he’ll get one more crack to compete in 2013.

Cincinnati announced Monday that the NCAA had granted Kay a sixth year of eligibility because of injuries that caused him to miss the 2008 and ’11 seasons. He is now working towards a master’s in business administration.¬†You can read the official release from the university HERE.

Prior to this season, Kay had played in only six games because of injury. He played in 10 games this year, starting the last four after season-opening starter Munchie Legaux was benched. He threw for nearly 1,000 yards and six touchdowns this season and is slated to start in the Belk Bowl against Duke, where the Bearcats will wear these nifty helmets.

    So, is he following Butch Jones to Tennessee? Might as well see if he can stretch that last year out until he has time to finish his PHD.

    I guess this will not make Munchie LeGaux
    too happy! Who names their child Munchie?
    Why make a kid suffer like that? Life is difficult
    enough. Iona College has a basketball player
    with first name, “Mo-mo”. Why? Why name
    a kid “Mo-mo”! His real first name is Lamont.
    That’s a really nice name!! Not f’ing “Mo-mo”.

    Munchie isn’t his real name. Can’t remember his real name off the top of my head though. Apparently his grandma called him that because of the way he chewed when he was a kid and he lost some of his baby teeth.
