Paul Perkins as Han Solo

Have you ever made there Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs? Despite the fact that a parsec is a unit of distance and not speed, the answer is probably no. It is also not likely that you had 1,575 yards to lead the Pac-12 in rushing last season. The only person that has done that is the Bruins junior running back, Paul Perkins, who came out of no where to lead the conference in total yards.

This Fall, Perkins will be THE man, kind of like how Han Solo is THE man in a galaxy far, far away. Because of his blazing speed and essential awesomeness, Perkins gets our nod as the coolest cat in the college football universe.

I am sure Han Solo knows this to be true.
