  • Tabs in word apparently don't translate well via copy past to here. Good enough

  • Some trends: The OL seems to be converging to around 311-313 pounds with the exception of Wallace. Several, even Ragnow, have shed a bit of weight. Specialists have also gotten lighter.

    Guidry lost some weight to be a DE instead of a DT. Marshall gained more weight presumably to be a DT instead of a DE.

    Not too many surprises out there, except for Cole Kelley. Gained another 10 pounds and now weight 268! Not sure if that is lean mass or not. If not, we may have our very own Pillsbury Throwboy by the time he starts. Does Kentucky rotate into our schedule in 18 or 19?

    My guess is Marshall will be in the NG rotation. The 3-4 defense doesn't have DTs.

    Yes they do. The NG is essentially a special type of DT. A DT plays anywhere from a 0 to a 4 technique with a NG playing from a 0 to a 1 technique. You often see it listed as a nose tackle in the 3-4 because it is a DT lined up right on the nose.

  • Going back to Kelley, can you imagine the look on a DE's face when he's going up to sack Kelley, and realizes the guy he's trying to tackle is bigger than he is? I imagine it like when Bobby Boucher is trying to tackle without using his tackling fuel.

  • Pilsbury Throwboy - greatest non Razorback player to ever lace them up.

    Most 3-4 Defensive coaches refer to that position as NG but some do refer to it as NT or Nose Tackle so you do have a good point.

  • Could you align that data a little better, Benny? ;)

    Though I really do wish I could. When I go to modify it, it lines up, but when I hit save and see it in the monitor, it is misaligned. I can't fix what I can't see when I'm trying to fix it. :(

  • The good news is though that our roster more or less looks to be where our coaching staff wants it weight wise. Nothing quantitative, but looks like fewer significant changes this year compared to years past.

    Try going to your original post, click on modify, align that data so it appears aligned, then click on preview and continue to do the same over and over until everything is aligned in the Preview. But when you modify, reduce all of the keyed data to the smallest font size and align it under that font size....but I am sure you can figure this out. It's what I have to do for you guys to make it all fit.

    But truly, I was just kidding since you have been so good as to give me a rash about the data that I have posted in the past. ;) That said, it really could be easier to read.

  • On my iPhone I hit reader view and everything lined up. Hope that helps.

    FYI true nose guards hate being called defensive tackles. why? I couldn't answer that. Just one of those things

  • This would look really nice in a Google Doc that everyone can view. I can start working on it if anyone is interested?

    Probably because the nose guard is more difficult than a standard DT. 

    Similarly, don't mix up caver and spelunker. A caver cover is the type of person exploring caves that's gets called upon to rescue the spelunker.

    Some disc golf players get upset if you call what they throw a frisbee too.
