    No kidding. The NFL is still littered with UT defensive lineman.

    Where is Dan Brooks these days? Didn't he get hired by Clemson after 2008?

    Yes.

    He's there and Caldwell is at Arkansas.

    I always thought Fulmer quit putting an emphasis on linemen in the latter years in recruiting.

    Id take O'Brien and Sentimore and be happy.

    It occurred to me last night that one of the reasons we seem to have so much trouble finding DLinemen is because they are all in Baton Rouge.

    It does seem that what used to be a Tennessee assembly line has become an LSU one.

    VQ posters seem to think O'Brien is a real possibility now. That would be a good get.

    Wow, that'd be great. I guess Michigan is out of room?

    Don't think so. Tenn was first to offer and he really likes it apparently. Once again, just VQ scuttlebutt.

    Oh... Then I'm not convinced. He was all about Michigan after the ND game.

    Defensive line will bring championships.

    They seem more confident now. Saw posters on a Michigan forum indicate that he'll be a Vol. They said it's about numbers and them backing off, but I'm not sure about that.

    If it isn't about numbers, why the change of heart since the ND game?

    I think he is being slow played at this point by Michigan.

    I categorize that as a numbers thing. In any event, I hope he comes here. We need him more anyway.

    Figured I would edit this post. If we land Autry (DE) as expected and these guys turn out. We could have recruited 3 of our 4 starters on the DL from the JUCO ranks. These guys need to be good, quick.

    Would be huge if true.

    Recruiting gods on TOOS saying Jacobs, Autry, and Sentimore all on board. Hoping it's true.

    Yeah, somebody on VQ said Autry gave us a silent yesterday. Also McCullers is supposed to be all Bama and Sentimore to UT.

    It would be huge to get Jacobs, Autry, and Sentimore. Not only would it provide better talent than we have now but it would also give us some depth.
