Jim Chaney is asked a question and gives an honest answer.
On the idea of coaching around the offensive line:
“I don’t think it’s possible. I don’t believe it’s possible. I don’t think you can coach around your offensive line. Football’s been a game played on the line of scrimmage for a lot of years. At Purdue years ago, we threw it all the time and everybody says, ‘Well, you’re doing that to bypass your line.’ We had a lot of linemen go on and play in the NFL. We weren’t winning the game because of the lack of the line play. We were winning because of the line play. We were just doing it a different way. It’s hard to hide if you’re deficient on the offensive line. It’s difficult to do. I think it’s virtually impossible at times. My anticipation is that our kids are going to go out there and compete. We’re going to be just fine. We’re going to go get better as the season goes on and continue to develop. And hopefully everything will go our way.”
At least until he got to the last sentence.
