    I thought at the time that he was overrated. He was kinda like a left-handed Monteo Garrett with significantly less straight-line speed.

    The real offensive monsters in that class were Samir Baker and Demarcus Watts. But they made even poorer off-field choices than Barney, apparently.

    Sounds like they could have benefitted from Character Development.

    More of certain people anointing players as certain things and then it never happens....as some people have a habit of doing.

    In Zeke's case, it was an unfortunate set of circumstances. I really hate how things worked out for him.

    Well, there was a reason we got so many "steals" in the 2008 signing class . . .

    But you're right: 2005-2008 was one long roster disaster. Maybe some more resources should have been put towards player development and retention.

    Who knows. Perhaps a CTS motivational meditation seminar retreat would have helped. Before his time.😎

    FWIW, these are the listed weights of UCF's starting defensive front 4 in 2014.
    6'4" 260
    6'2" 270
    6'2" 299
    6'1" 283 (all-AAC)

    They had one guy on that roster who was over 300 pounds and he didn't have any starts as a junior.

    That was the year Summers was the DC and the defense was 4th nationally in yards per play and 9th in scoring defense. I think having a leaner and quicker defensive line really fits more into the defensive system that CTS and 'Zo are more comfortable with and they just didn't really know how to utilize the defensive linemen and linebacker personnel that they had.
    Hey, Tyson! Change the culture back!

    If you think TK is the reason we don't have better non-conference football schedules, see this post.

    Not hating on that logic of lighter DL but I want to see results.

    Those are a one time weight measurement. Wouldn't surprise me if they added 10+ pounds game time.

    The injuries he sustained were certainly unfortunate and restricted his abilities. He made some poor choices off the field that didn't help himself either, though.
