    his picture in the article in the Ames paper makes him look pretty thin for 285. Even if he is 285, isn't that small for a DT?

    The weight wouldnt be too noticeable if he werent a lot taller than a lot of our past DT's.

    I cant remember the last time the Hawgeyes have had a DT that weighed over 285, and they have had some pretty decent D's. I think its a matter of talent and strength, more than weight.

    These days, it is only slightly undersized. If you look across the country, most of the top inside guys are less than 300 lbs. these days.

    When I first saw this title, I thought maybe Drew "face full of turf" Tate had let himself go up in the CFL :smile:.
