...per his Twitter account, he has shed 4% body fat since last year. I think it was SU that pointed out Florida really hasn't gone after the mammoth DTs since Muschamp got here and he actually seems to prefer smaller, more athletic tackles. Seems to be pretty accurate.

as long as he can hold his gap responsibility and get some push...i'm fine with it...i'm hoping for big things out of him this year...
Well if SU said it, duh, of course that's the way it is.
**Obligatory SU/mammoth joke**
Well if there is one poster who would know about fat guys...
LORD FORGIVE ME FOR THE GOON DADDY IS COMING OUT TONIGHT
Seriously, where is Jeff in this thread?
I don't think Champ necessarily wants smaller more athletic DT's, maybe he does, but I think he wants guys at all positions to carry their weight well. Jacobs doesn't have the biggest frame from what I have seen on TV, and for him to weigh 300+ almost ensures having excess bad weight. He went after John Jenkins who was 350+ to play NT. He probably would have wanted Jenkins to trim off some bad weight to increase stamina though. JMO.
That's probably a good point.
I think fellow players saying Jacobs has "old man strength" and Jacobs trying to arm-tackle every running back he saw were probably good indications that he needs a little Dillmanization.

Notre Dame had the massive Louis Nix at DT.Bama's Eddie Lacy went by him like he had concrete over shoes. I think all this excessive weight hurts their performance and results in leg injuries. S Floyd played great at 302 lbs.
I can't wait for the next thread on an arrested player...
