OSU's newest QB Gunnar Hoak brought along some unintentional comedy.

I decided to search for his Kentucky Biography; it's still preserved on Kentucky's website.

While his actual redshirt year contains nuggets of minutia for the diehard CFB fan's ingestion, for his actual R-FS year, of which he didn't play, Kentucky's website doesn't even attempt creativity when penning his narrative.  

Yep, in 2017:'Practiced with the team.' 

It's not even a complete sentence.

The Full Bio is Below... And, his favorite food is pizza.  I wonder which Campus pizzeria will be his favorite?
