And those collisions being with a lowly LB? Keep in mind that Taylor weighs 220 pounds.............now, I'd direct your attention as a comparison to the size of our own LBs.

BTW, West Virginia's Owen Schmitt was the bruiser at 63 and 248 pounds that paved the way for three consecutive 1,000 yard seasons for Steve Slaton.
Our linebackers are 220 to 260 lbs and they will not be sitting there to be hit . Owen Schmitt plowed nothing but ran for his own yardage . If Vonta ran half as much as schmitt we would not be having this discussion .
