Chip Towers explores the offensive line’s future in the wake of Kolton Houston’s reinstatement.
Needless to say, both tackle positions are up in the air. Houston’s not game ready, Theus has to recover fully from that foot injury, Ward at 278 pounds looks to be too light to handle the SEC trench wars, and Gates and Beard are better suited to play at guard.
But this sure beats the situation we Dawg fans have been accustomed to. There looks to be some real depth this season. Yeah, I know, pinch yourselves.
Which is why I find the editorial comment in the header a bit puzzling. Bobo and Friend are going to start the best five. There’s nothing delicate about that task… unless it’s the part about getting used to having some real choices to make.
