08:14 AM ET 04.09 | There was a time nothing was safe when Arie and Cyrus Kouandjio were mad at each other. "It was break the walls," Arie said Monday. "Get in trouble and then come back and do it again another day. "But now, we're fine." Alabama's rebuilt offensive line is counting on it, especially now that the two brothers are literally closer than they've ever been together on the football field. ... Cyrus, the former top-ranked, five-star recruit who started all 14 games as a sophomore last season, is locked in as Alabama's left tackle. Arie, the older brother who has battled back from multiple knee injuries, has emerged as a viable option at left guard, a position previously occupied by unanimous All-American Chance Warmack.

Brothers on the O-line might be unique for Bama, but I recall a pair of Pouncey twins playing together for UF.

True. It made me immediately think of the Pouncey brothers. It's usnusual but not unique.

Going to be a set of brothers on the OL for TAMU this year, as well.

It's actually a really good article, which is a surprise for Al.com. The SI intern was the one that picked the title about it being unique, even.

If Arie's knees hold up, this does not bode well for Bama's 2013 opponents.

They have a favorable schedule for 2013. Out of the east SEC they play powerhouses Kentucky and Tenn. The OOC consists of Va Tech, Ga State, Chattanooga, and Colorado State. They may break a sweat against VA Tech-the other OOC games could be won by the walk-ons.

May UK and/or UTK make their year(s) by upsetting Bama (who'll have to contribute via uncharacteristic foul-ups). Hear me God!

No, you see, Joe, my team is led by a brand spanking new all to human coach. Your team, Bama is led by a man who accepted the indwelling and is now Lucifer's Vessel. God listens to all prayers, even those of sinners (still hope for you, Joe). You'd remember this if you'd just withdraw from assimilation into Beelzebub's minions.

Fat Phil disagrees.......after the Stoerner fumble that saved their NC year, Fulmer said "God must be a Vol Fan"!


Can't wait for Petrino to wreck that program next.....

Coach Saint Saban has never talked with the Devil. Beelzebub dwells in Knoxville.

The best trick the Devil ever pulled off was convincing PHil Foolmer that Phil was praying to God and not The Devil.

Keep wishin'. Jimbo ain't goin' NOWHERE, and the Seminole Nation, including yours truly, would revolt en masse if that washed up fool even got an interview at FSU.
