    Re: Hicks Down From 370 Pounds

    Hicks will be one of the keys to the season IMO. Haughton was turning into an outstanding college lineman and going into last season Hicks was ahead of him on the depth chart before the grades issues. If Hicks can be effective and play as well as Haughton would have I'll be thrilled.

    Re: Hicks Down From 370 Pounds

    It's gonna be interesting to see the long term effects of "Today's OL" are. The last 10 years this has got outta hand. It is not healthy for these guys to walk around at 315+. I don't care how good of shape their in.

    Re: Hicks Down From 370 Pounds

    It all depends on their frame. I know a former lineman for us who is over 300, but isn't out of shape at all.

    They can be in as good of shape as they want. It's not healthy to way 350lbs.

    Re: Hicks Down From 370 Pounds

    It's not exactly healthy, but it depends on the frame. Hicks would have been that big if he never played FB. It's not like ISU put the weight on him. He's healthier BECAUSE he's a FB player.

    I do think that after Hicks and KO graduate, the days of us seeing 330 lb OLs are probably done under this staff. They seem to like to recruit 6'5 260 lb kids and build them up. Probably a good strategy for this offense where they need to have better mobility and endurance.

    BTW, DMR, Burris was a redshirt freshman last year and Hicks didn't practice with the team the whole season.

    Q: If an irresistible force meets an immovable object, what wins?

    A: The irresistible force; because it takes 0.5 seconds to go around an immovable object.

    That's only 208 pounds more than I weigh. Maybe I could bulk up some

    You get kicked off of planes and people on CF tell you how much they hate being around you.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Re: Hicks Down From 370 Pounds

    Withe the direction offensively we would like to go I would rather have a lean more agile tackle, more around Burris size, I hope by Hicks losing the weight he has become a lot quicker, when he first came to campus I heard he was badly out shape...
