    It seems like we are having way more injuries than previous years. Anything to do with how we are training or just bad luck.

    What's weird is that the majority of them are coming on the offensive line. Not running backs or wide receivers or anything like that. All at the same spot - minus Jansen Watson.

    If Jamison is healthy I'm betting the offensive line will be Brock, Oni, Tom, Jamison, Daniel.

    Many years ago didn't all of our lineman wear knee braces to help prevent injuries? Do we still do this?

    So looking at the depth chart Dunning was the backup at QT & ST. If a Tackle goes down this Saturday, which this year is pretty likely, who's next in line? Or maybe it's more pertinent to ask who is left?

    My speculation is that Burton will move to tackle as long as Jamison is ready to go.

    About the only reserve left across the front is Duaron Williams. Then there's the redshirting freshmen. I hope we start getting some of the injured back soon.

    West switching makes sense (and helps), with Boesen hurt. The only other scholly tight end is redshirting.

    As far as (P)Richardson, I wonder which of the other "'tweeners" CW mentioned in an article earlier won't be around for their fifth year...

    I'm pretty sure this is common practice at the majority of FBS programs.

    Yeah I agree with this. Or, the thought of Loth coming in at C and moving Tom to G in a desperation scenario could happen too. Or, Loth at G and keep Tom at C. Just tossing stuff out. Regardless, the entire situation is a giant cluster right now.

    Probably just coincidence, but does it have anything to do with linemen switching sides for the strong/quick positions? I guess I still don't understand how that would help. It seems like a lot more to adjust to and learn as far as checking what the defense is doing and know who/how to block.

    I have no idea. My guess is that all of the O-line injuries are a coincidence. I don't read much more into it than that.

    Serious question, but are the gaps between lineman smaller this year than we've used in the past? I know we have guys play with a hand down more often. Just seems like there might be an explanation for something Klenakis is doing that Bleil did different as far as injuries are concerned.
