Brains and brawn drive Missouri defensive tackle Harold Brantley

Brantley, a sophomore defensive tackle, chose to major in psychology based on his interest in the brain. He said there is no mystery, at least physiologically, to what drives him or any other defensive lineman. “It’s all amygdala, fight or flight,” Brantley said. “Either you come out low and take on a 600-pound double team, or you’re going on your back.”
