Other than recruiting there isn't a whole lot in the off-season to tide us over other than talking about the team. Because of that, most of you know the current roster about as well as anyone. However, I do find it a worthwhile exercise to reassess each position and player one more time ahead of the season as a way to resharpen our familiarity with each.
Last year's defensive line was led by long-time fan favorite Poona Ford. As you'd expect, the unit took on the workman-like image of the senior leader. He'll be missed as much for his presence in the locker room, gym, and practice field as much as he will be for his steady contributions on Saturday. Losing Poona is the bad news, but there is plenty of reason to believe UT's most consistent unit last year will repeat in the 2018 campaign. Today's Spring Primer, the defensive line.
