If size were the only thing that mattered…

… then Georgia’s offensive line would be the baddest on the planet.

    But its not the only thing that matters. Fire Mark Richt!

    Carver’s Bay High School ought to make that list.

    Do you mean the size of their heart?

    I don’t know what to think of that. Keep running it, i guess.

    Yes, they’re big, but they have no one backing them up. Big guys wear out quicker.

    I wonder what their weight room stats are like? Bean benched 525 before he hurt his shoulder, I’m curious what Glenn and Ben Jones are throwing around.

      I heard that every one of our line starters, offense and defense, benches 500 or better. I’d trade 50lbs of that if Bean could pass block.

      In the article it is noted that the @ Wisconsin, the OL is the only position group that does not take extended breaks and they should be in better condition. Five of the main six lineman who are taking the majority of the snaps have been in the program for 3-5 years. One of them is a former walk-on who has added 70 lbs since enrolling.

      They have built the OL program similar to the “Nebraska Way” under Tom Osborne.

      Of course in the ’70-’80s Nebraska was thought to have built their stellar OLs via performance enhancing drugs.

    Saw this in the print version last night and just shook my head. The article is about Wisconsin. You’d think we could just road grade some teams with sheer size.

      Ah, but balance and leverage are just as important.

      My question is, why isn’t Friend up at NE during the off season to see how they prepare their O-lines. Because damn, Tom Brady has all day to throw passes back there. In fact, I say their O-Line is more important then Brady.

    That article is from the future. Is there something you’re not telling us, Senator?

    I’m hoping some of our OL problems are due to acclimation of a new OL coach. If Friend is any good at coaching we should see improvement as the season progresses. Considering our soft schedule this year and the batch of injuries we’ve had, I thought we’d see some of our freshman get playing time. Was really surprised we didn’t sub at all in last week’s game.
