In addition to having one of the best names in the history of college football, Cincinnati quarterback Munchie Legaux has been an effective football player during his time with the Bearcats. On Wednesday, the senior quarterback was granted an additional year of eligibility that will keep him available to play in 2014.

When we last saw Legaux back in September, he was suffering a gruesome knee injury that would sideline him for the duration of the year after just 51 pass attempts in 2 games, and that injury absence was the reason that he was given an extra year. Prior to that, however, he threw 13 touchdown passes as a junior in 2012, and Legaux was expected to have a “breakout” season of sorts in his “first” senior campaign.

Many people have tabbed the Cincinnati Bearcats as a sleeper to watch in the AAC next season and that was prior to the realization that they’ll have an established, veteran QB under center from the opening snap. Now, they can be considered one of the clear favorites moving forward, and Munchie is back in business.
