    Who looks to be our starting five OL for the season opener this fall?

    My guess below...I think the only starting job still up for grabs would be the guard slot opposite Tuftee. Some rumors seem to hint that Dika was looking very good before being hurt in spring practice...has anyone gotten any other leaks/info on how various young offensive lineman are looking this spring. I believe this may be the key to our season...certainly a good OL makes the QB's and RB's much better players.

    C Farniok
    G Tuftee
    G Gannon
    T Burris
    T Bykowski

    C Tautolo
    G Dika
    G Graham/Omoile
    T Lichtenberg
    T Loth

    with the way we can and will rotate them thru the game, it does not matter to me who starts

    It's vitally important to have a strong rapport throughout the 5 linemen. I'd much rather see a starting 5 that handle the load and play together.

    I'm not sure it'll be that straightforward. I think there'll be a three man rotation at tackle a lot of the time, and Tuftee might have his hands full with Omoile by the time Fall rolls around. I guess we'll see!

    I think that you have the starters nailed. Personally, I'm not too worried about Gannon. I thought that he did a good job when he filled in for Tuftee and an offseason will only help him. I thought that maybe he'd get a shot at LT, but I guess not. I look for Farniok to be the star of the OL and Omoile to make a run at one of the Guard spots. Lichtenburg will see plenty of time as a swing Tackle.

    Really excited to see what Farniok can do as the anchor of this line, kid's got big upside.

    They're collecting kids with big upside. And who knows what the Big Dawg will do when he steps onto campus this summer--redshirt, or make a run at a starting job?

    Redshirt Redshirt Redshirt.

    He is recovering from a knee injury (ACL? can't remember) which should only amplify his chances to be redshirted, and considering every offensive lineman in the Rhoads era has been redshirted I would guess that there is less than a 5% chance he doesn't redshirt. Especially with our depth at offensive line.

    I'm actually excited to see Dagel out there after a RS year. I think that he could be a good player down the line.

    We were atrocious against blitzing teams last year so hopefully we have personnel in place to get that cleared up. The biggest factor in the outcome of our games last year was usually the amount the other team blitzed.

    I know by November he was already up to 285 and carrying the weight well.

    This seemed to be a huge factor in the Rutgers game, but what others?

    Umm... we won against UCONN....
