I focused a lot on Mount Cody. He has lost a good bit of weight and now appears to be in the 370 lb. range instead of the plus 400 lbs he carried last year. Last night Cody owed the A gaps for most of the game and Virginai Tech did little if any running in either A gap unless it was the QB or a delayed draw/screen. The bottom line was Cody manhandled the interior of the Virginia Tech O-Line and took away a piece of the Virginia Tech play book with his pressence alone. He looks stronger and a bit quicker this year. If he stays healthy he won`t make it past the first half of the first round. My other Alabama first round draft pick hope McClain had an active night and except for one play had an outstanding night. I am not sure why he lost his head down near the goal line and got those two personal fouls. McClain is really good in coverage and was very stout against the run. He is an above average stack and shedder. He is perfect at ILB in our defense. MIke Johnson the 6'6" OG for Alabama really struggled early with the super fast and smaller Virginia Tech defenders, but by the second half after the Virginia Tech defense got tired, he started to manhandle them.
