Lol, you are confusing the 98 defense with other seasons. Go back and look up the statistics on that season, the Texas defense was a big hot pile of chicken crap. I agree with you on how good Hampton and Rogers would turn out to be in 98 they were also hot piles along with the rest of that defense. As for the DBs, don't forget most of those guys did lose their starting jobs. Freshmen Rod Babers came in the next year and took one of those spots and became a 4 year starter. I'm not talking about humphries and Woodard, but were solid but neither was what I would call spectactular, neither could hold the jock of Ossai and I have a feeling new guys that just transferred in are also much better but we won't know until we see them next year. However, looking at their film, they sure look the part. I understand that many of the underclassmen on the 98 defense turned out to be great players, however the 98 defense sucked donkey balls.
