Jerry Porter's incessant teasing of fellow receiver Ronald Curry about his body make-up played a huge part in Curry dedicating himself to the weight room this offseason and transforming his body into sculpted sinew. "It started out as a joke, and it became one of those things where toward the end of the season Kiff came to me and said, 'We would really like for you to hit the weights hard this offseason,' " Curry said of a conversation he had with coach Lane Kiffin. "So I did." Curry spent every day in the weight room for five months, pushed by the likes of safety Jarrod Cooper and defensive tackle Tommy Kelly.
