If you haven't read David Nelson's Chris Leak look-a-like tale yet, check out Mike McCall's story here: www.alligator.org/articles/2007/09/25/sports/football/nelson.txt.

Now here are some reactions from teammates about Nelson's crazy story.

Senior offensive tackle Carlton Medder:

"It's crazy. We got a couple players that look like Chris Leak. We got Kyle Jackson. Shoot, we even had Skyler Thornton that looked like Chris Leak. He's just another one on the checklist looking like Chris."

Sophomore wide receiver/running back Jarred Fayson:

"They actually look totally different. David's like 6'4, Chris is like 5'11. We always pick on David because we say he's got lips like Angelina Jolie. There's a big difference, but it's pretty funny. We talk about (the Jolie comparison) all the time."

Freshman defensive tackle Torrey Davis:

"At least he didn't let anybody down. He gave the fans what they want. I ain't never heard nothing like that."

But Davis has never had something like that happen to him: "I'm one of a kind," he said.
