    Didn't say benching 400 lbs made you a D1 football player. These guys are talented , D1 players that can also bench 400 lbs. That combination is impressive and will likely help on game day.

    Yeah, well I eat a lot and know a lot of people who do too and none of us have any business being on a D1 team. Eating a lot has very little to do with football.

    I run a lot and know a lot of people who do too and none of us have any business being on a college track team. Running a lot has little to do with track.

    I read a lot of books and know a lot who do too and none of us have any business being at Harvard. Reading books has little to do with being at Harvard.

    That being said, I hope the hard work in the weight room translates to the field this year...
    Haha. Seriously? 400 pounds is damned impressive even for a group of guys who train year round and have professional trainers designing their routines.

    What I'm saying is that was a very bad post and you should feel bad. Even if you were just doing a humble brag, bro.

    Spends his paycheck on roids, still sleeps on what looks like a futon.

    I like this guys style, including the gold star on his bedroom door.

    *Yes, I know it's a photoshop. I can see the distortion in the door just as easily as you can.

    That ain't distortion. That's his gravitational pull wreaking havoc on the door.

    Surprise! The hawkeyes have more idiots per capita than any fanbase in the country. Of course they can't help themselves from running their mouths about something that they know nothing about, yet feel superior to actual athletes who can do something that they could never dream of doing. The sheer stupidity of that fanbase should surprise no one, yet they continue to do so.

    Re: Yancy tweet

    Nice job on the memes and personal attacks! Gotta love the internet for that :)

    That being said, I failed to articulate my thoughts in my original post. Back in the 1990s, the average bench of a starting D1 lineman was pushing 400. With the advancement in training over the past 20 years, I'd have to think the average bench of a starting lineman in the Big 12 is over 400 lbs now.

    I realize that it takes a TON of hard work to get to that 400 lbs club, but I'd like to see all of our o-line and d-line guys in the 400 club with our strongest guys being in the 500 club. That way we are better than average, and hopefully that translates to more W's in the end.

    Bench isn't nearly as emphasized in the Training world now as it was back then. Flexibility and explosive movements (Clean, jerk, etc) along with balance (one legged squats and the like) are much more important in today's football world of speed taking priority over strength

    I coached Tyler in HS. He was a teammate of Ben Boesen's on our 2010 title team and was our NG. Was strong as an ox in HS too. Great kid, I believe was a 2 during spring ball or at least was practicing with them. Not quite as quick and explosive as you'd like for a B12 DL.
