    I think it will be reminiscent of Miami from a few years ago. *-10 guys rotating in and out all game. All are comparable in ability. They will stay refreshed all game and wreak havoc the entire time.

    DT: Williams, Wroten, Dorsey, Favorite, Alexander, Stewart, etc.
    DE: Oliver, Pittman, Pittman, Trumaine J, Tyson J, Jones, West, etc.

    Let 'er Rip!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It's going to be FUN :geauxtigs

    Yes I did.....I'll add him. Do you know him? I am hearing that he may leave the team, I guess because of injury. Have you heard anything about him leaving?

    Also I think there is a chance that Wroten moves outside. I think it was going to happen with Saban, but who knows with Miles or the new DC. They may prefer smaller faster DEs like Pittman.

    I heard that was Saban's plan for him. And he looked as quick or quicker than Marquise Hill if you ask me. Saban liked Mammoth DE to shut down the run. Marcus and Marrquise would have probably played DT at some schools.

    Only that he's slated to start opposite Melvin Oliver. I'll ask around, but I just can't see a guy who has come so far after coming back to football just quitting when he's on the cusp of being the player he once was and doesn't have the last name Booty. :wink:

    Didnt he tear something in his arm or something? Like I said, I was just relaying something I heard today. It was speculation as far as I know.

    I think Wroten should stay inside. He became a force the 2nd half of the year. I also look to see some things from Favorite and Jackson.

    What about Tim Washington, he was a highly heralded DE from TX in '03. Last thing I heard about him was that spider bite in the beginning of the year.
