KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Tennessee offensive lineman Ryan Johnson grew up in a family of home builders and sees plenty of parallels in what he's doing now.
"When you're building an offensive line, you've got to do it just like you're building a house," said Johnson, a civil engineering major and SEC Academic Honor Roll selection. "You've got to build the foundation. ... You've got to pick the foundation before you start picking paint colors."
One year after its foundation crumbled, Tennessee's offensive line is trying to rebuild itself into a competitive and physical group again. Plenty of work remains to be done.
