UK’s defensive line has been the big talking point this week, following the departure of Regie Meant. Meant’s leave of absence only adds pressure to Junior Matt Elam, who coaches and fans are hoping can step up this season and be a real force in the middle of the defense. Is he ready to accept that role as an enforcer in the trenches? We can only speculate for now, but here’s our take.
