Sylvester Williams' incredible journey to Super Bowl began on assembly line

This Sunday he'll line up and go to work, with men on his right and on his left. He'll be alone with his thoughts and his task. In that way, it's the same as it was after high school for Sylvester Williams. In every other way, it's completely different. Williams is starting on the defensive line for the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl. A little more than five years ago, he was on an assembly line in Missouri. (Yahoo! Sports)

Say hello to Seth Littrell, the Tar Heels' new assistant head coach for offense and tight ends coach. Here is the line score for the senior fullback and co-captain on Oklahoma's 2000 national title squad: 24 carries for 78 yards, 10 catches for 109 yards, two touchdowns.
