That was cool, and I'm sure it's why they won the game.
Maybe LSU should have tried that against Kentucky....

Well, in this situation, yes. DeAngelo was with the Panthers for 9 years. That's a long time. I would think he would have at least a few friends on the team. Arkansas might ...

The Titans can't fix everything in one draft, no matter how many picks they get if they deal the No. 2 for multiple selections.
IMO, first priority is to shore up that line so you protect Mett. Second priority is to find him ...
