    Did you know Matt Elam was in the running for a part in a movie? He was almost cast to play the title role in this summer’s ‘Godzilla’ reboot.

    Man that’s a big kid, Coach Schlarman who is right behind him is not a little guy by any means and he looks tiny compared to Elam.

    With weight training this kid could be special in a few years.

      ^ He’s a nose tackle, not a DE. He doesn’t have to run a 4.4 and be ripped. His job is to clog the middle and hold his ground

    Elam has to be at least 30years old, someone check his birth certificate.

    Ever seen Varsity Blues? I like that part when he walks that pig on a leash. Looks like his biceps have double chins.

    Heres a quick test if you dont know if youre a UK football fan or not. Ask yourself “Am I excited about this upcoming football season?” If your answer is not yes then you can safely say you are not a UK football fan. They may not win alot of games this year but these guys are acting like football players and that is this upcoming season will be alot of fun.

    This team is starting to look like a football team. Who can’t get excited about that? Basketball only and little brother trolls.

    He’s a big ass puppy. If he can move like the coaches say he can and he buys in to the high performance regiment look out. Will be a monster in his junior and senior year

    Elam is a mountain. He will be a factor this year. A force from there on out. If he stays healthy. He will see a lot of cutback “chop” blocks this year. We have some teams on our schedule known for dirty play. Especially our season finale. His team-mates will have to protect him to a degree. He will make people forget about “Mt. Cody”. This kid will play at 350-360, even when he gets in shape. He has tremendous physical attributes. The brother of his former coach is a close friend. His strength is astounding. And he hasn’t even begun to tap into his potential yet. The fact that Saban wanted him BAD says everything. It’s gonna take two people to hold him off NOW, and that will just open up things for the rest of the line. If they can get Hyde to play up to his alter-ego last name?!?! We would have two of the strongest DT’s in college football!! But, not sure Hyde will find his “Hyde side” this year?! Hope he does!

    I guess if the guys get too dehydrated, they could squeeze some man milk from those moobs. Almost looks like he’s got a double row…man utters!
