    O-Line Depth: How fragile are we?

    We lost Loth but have a capable backup in Lalk, so we hear. We lost Campos. Things look pretty sparse. Looks like most positions are running only 1 backup on the depth chart. I don't know anything about the up-and-comers on the O-Line. My question, how many O-Line injuries will it take this year for us to be back where we were last year with no pass protection (and me just golfing most Saturdays)? Are things as sparse as they look on the Depth Chart?

    As we all know, with our stellar receivers it will be so heartbreaking to not have a competent O-Line. Oh man I can barely stomach the thought.

    Re: O-Line Depth: How fragile are we?

    1 backup at every position sounds like okay depth to me.

    Re: O-Line Depth: How fragile are we?

    Typically you want the same five guys to play the whole time anyways. A lot of good teams just use a swing OT that plays either spot in case of injury and same with OG. Obviously the more the better, but I'd say we are in good shape for depth. Every team would be in trouble if they were relying on their 10th+ OL.

    He's a freaking troll so he's probably making it up to get a reaction out of us.

    Re: O-Line Depth: How fragile are we?

    OL depth is better than it has been in a long time. Backups like Lalk played and started last season. Dunning saw time, and Campos is talented. Any word on Taiese, is he looking like a solid backup?

    Unfortunately, this is exactly where ISU was at last year, and exactly why I expect this year to be completely different as long as there is not another rash of injuries.

    I would like to know what kind of Fall camp he had also. He looks like a real mauler in his video.

    Yeah, a lot of the guys there have seen time and if they haven't, they are pushing guys that have. I'm not too worried about it until a bunch of injuries come along. My guess on Taiese is a redshirt because I think he could be really good in the future. Perhaps a starter next year with maybe Omoile sliding to center or something.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: O-Line Depth: How fragile are we?

    When did Campos get hurt!!!? Wtf. Learn your team before you post crap like that.

    Oline depth IMO is fine, prob deepest unit next to WR. Although it's hard to tell if they are really big 12 ready backups
