Excuse my ignorance, but whatís the difference between Air Force and the other service academies where they can have a 320 lb player?

Itís not ignorance; itís a very good question. The commandant at each service academy can set rules about physical fitness, maximum size, etc. A couple of years ago, AF changed its rules, and the O-line and D-line have been getting increasingly larger. Regulations may still require weight loss (or that they quit bulking up) before graduation / active duty. Iím not sure what Army and Navy are doing, but from watching on TV, I think theyíre doing something similar.†

The Owls had a safe and enjoyable flight to the land of presently clear skies and crisp cool air. All are accounted for, settling in for the night, and ready to rock and roll tomorrow for the UPSET! 😎
