    Oni back to OL

    Per Twitter/Facebook.

    That didn't last long.

    Coach Bleil said after practice tonight that freshman Oni Omoile
    has decided to move back to the offensive line after spending a few
    practices with the defensive line

    I'm hoping it was more of a mutual decision. For it to last this long (or, I guess, short), he must have looked like absolute **** on the D-line. Hopefully both parties understood it and made the right decision together.

    Re: Oni back to OL

    Maybe because Simon is now on campus? Come on, anyone in the know?

    Yeah, there has to be something there. I would assume that Simon has shown up or some other move has occurred. Somebody give me some news....

    Re: Oni back to OL

    Oni simply may not have liked it and told the staff move me back or allow me to move on.....I'm not saying that is what happened, but you never know.

    We need some depth at the DL...hopefully this does mean Simon made it.

    Re: Oni back to OL

    The way Bleil talked he just prefers to play Oline. Bleil also said he will likely eventually move to center because he is mobile and very intelligent (engineering major).

    I'm fine with it because I want the guy to play a position where he can motivate himself as much as possible. Oline and Dline are two very different animals.

    Haven't talked to my source yet, but I wouldn't hold your breath. Like I said in another thread, the staff would absolutely be shocked if he made it to campus, and if it does happen, it'll happen sometime next week.

    So frickin jealous of what they have in Ames. It's truly amazing what Fred has done coming in with 0 coaching experience.

    I am fine with it as well. It's kind of like the NFL Draft. I prefer a team to take the best available player rather than draft for need. Similarly, I want Oni in the position where he can be best suited to perform and help us win, rather than patching holes - which seems to clearly be OL.

    It looks like Jon Caspers is getting a look at D-Tackle per the Practice 14 videos.

    I wonder if that's just to have another body there with Simon and Pompey unavailable.
