    LSU has the best DTs year in and year out. Ridiculous and a big reason why their D is usually very solid.

    I love the chart that says Mississippi is the fattest state and Colorado is the skinniest one. The lesson? You guys in Colorado need to start eating like crap to help the Buffs.

    That's interesting but is this supposed to be an excuse for CU's pathetic DL recruiting the last 15 years? I may be way off but I bet there are some NFL DT's from texas and california.

    If they are great in college and help CU to become a dominant defense again that's enough for me, I could care less about the NFL.

    Not trying to make excuses for anything or make a point to you. Honestly thought it was an interesting article that you'd like, considering your interest in DL recruiting.

    Suh came from Portland (seen a signed helmet at the MAC here). So, it's certainly possible to get dominant DL from places besides the south.

    It's in the article. The point about looking at NFL D-Linemen is that if you are good in college you are VERY likely to get a look in the NFL. Those that are extremely good stick around and contribute more numbers. Obviously, this is a small sample size as we're only looking at CURRENT NFL D-Linemen (more accurate would be to look at the last 10 years or so), but one of the tables shows percentage of US population in a given state vs. percentage of NFL D-Linemen produced. Texas' percentages of US Population and NFL D-Linemen are very similar (~8%), whereas by percentage there are about half as many DL as you'd expect in CA. There are twice as many DL as you'd expect from Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Montana. Interestingly, there are about 4 times as many DL as there "should be" from Hawaii and Louisiana. Throw in the fact that there are 4 in-state BCS programs each in CA and Texas competing for those recruits and there are 13 other BCS schools that are "in-conference" for TX And CA and recruit those areas heavily it's not surprising that CU routinely doesn't end up with a good chunk of those prospects. However, I expect the current staff to turn this around given a full recruiting cycle.

    You do realize that the article is SI and not ESPN, right?

    uh...so basically we should recruit Hawai'i for DT?

    Good thing we have Tui and Cabral on staff.

    I do too. I'm really torn about what to expect from this years class. I know time is short, but part of me wants a big splash none-the-less. On the other hand, I'm anxious to see what this staff can do after establishing contacts and relationships for about a year -- thinking that the 2012 class should be monster.

    All said, I hope they focus on the defensive "wall".
