I've always though DE's should learn sumo techniques for pash rush and getting the offensive lineman's hands off them. I know sumo wrestlers do a lot of hand swatting and what not.. Just a random thought that popped into my head.

While you can manipulate your metabolism, it is based a lot simply on your genetic makeup.
Exact or not, your statement just didn't have Page's gravity attached to it so it weighed less 'till he paraphrased it. LOL.

On a completely unrelated note, does anyone know the density of conceit?

Anyone can gain weight. Its harder for some with higher metabolism and naturally lean yes, but it is always possible trust me. You just have to eat eat eat man. haha He'll figure it out eventually...hopefully...
He's eatting same size meals supposedly, added on more and is consuming more fats and proteins.

Not a body builder or anything, but I imagine if you relax on working out it could be hard to start eatting less which is bad.

If force fed long enough, absolutely yes. The body perceives excess calories as a stress, plain and simple. With so many tasks at hand, it's just another chore. The combination of heavy insulin response and constant dilution of acidity can wreak havoc. The kidneys and liver need ample rest, and the high calorie diets of many athletes do not allow that. Silver lining is that most NFL careers do not last very long. So if they change their lifestyle after retirement, they have plenty of time for the body to work its magic. It's the pro body builders that are really screwed. Dumbest people on the planet and it's not even close. The healthy choice as always is to enhance, not augment. But if someone told me I could make millions and set my family for generations with just a few years of risk, I'd be augmenting like a rookie porn star.

Wrestling skills translate excellently to football. There is a way of leaning and using your opponent's weight against him. It is hard to explain, but you can feel it sort of like balancing something. In short, yes, wrestling is a great skill to take into the interior lines on a football field. It also helps skill players. Some wrestling should be part of our s&c program.

Darius has the speed it takes to cover the outside on running plays. Without speed a big DE is useless in the SEC even if he weighs 280. Darius can catch a RB going to the corner. He won't be a weak link on defense.
He stays healthy and doesn't get tired.

Darius will be the best pass rusher on the team next year. Weight doesn't mean much if your not strong, flexible, and fast at DE. A line full of big slow players will not help us much. There is no question Darius is one of the most athletic lineman to ever step foot on campus that is why Lawing was so high on him. Elite DE's are very rare and I have faith in Ward if he says he can have this Weapon ready by August. Darius performed well considering he was undersized this year. He is behind Surratt in production of returning lineman.

Any chance he get's to 250? That's about 20 lbs.
just drink more beer. he'll gain weight promise
