    That would be nice. These days the MAC seems more relevant than the Big East anyway.

    Hampton also plays a 3-4. I watched them this weekend in Birmingham Alabama against Grambling State.

    #97, I didn't catch his name, is the NT in thier 3-4 and he played the 2 gap system very well. He needs more junk in his trunk, but other than that, he looked good controlling the LOS and manning the A gaps. He had a little pass rush action to him as well. I thought he used his hands well both as a pass rusher and a run defender.

    While the level of competition is a concern, he might warrant a look as an UDFA come April. (Especially if Sullivan washes out.)

    Watching KU at Toledo:

    Toledo is in a 3-4, with some 3-3 nickel and 4 man fronts on passing downs. The NT seems to penetrate a lot, but has some nice athleticism. Actually the front three penetrate too much to my liking, but that also might be a response to how KU is attacking them and the fact they do not have the LBs for a 3-4.

    Ochmed, if you get a chance to watch Toledo, the LT and the TE look pretty decent in this game.
