    OL and DL so far?

    Does anyone have any feel how the lines are coing together for the 2008 season? The reports from Cyclones.com give some insight to the skill players and the DBs and LBs, but not a lot of insight on the OL or the DL.

    DLine and D as a whole will be a pleasant surprise IMO.

    I think we'll still struggle on offense.

    I'd just like to see us score more than last season.

    OL's supposed to be one of our strong points - if that's a struggle we're doomed.

    Not pointing directly to the OLine. I just think finishing in the red zone and putting points on the board will be similar to last year.

    Hope I'm wrong.

    The good news is I think our D is going to be much improved.

    No particular reason. Just my gut telling me the new QB will not walk in and lead a prolific offense just like that. Things take time usually.

    I just hope the offense is better than last year, which I think can be achieved even with a new QB.

    Year 1 was arguably Meyer's best...

    Not only the big, huge new o-linemen, but Jeremiah Schwartz should help with red zone/short yardage issues.

    Todd Reesing did it last year, and he can't see over his linemen...

    Assuming he isn't redshirted. But if Bass doesn't make it back on the team I can imagine us using him during the season in a Kock type of role.

    I agree with you on this, BUT i think our running game will be much improved.. This will translate into more redzone TD's, IMO..

    We have 5 running backs that can do that already. plus all the TE/FB's that will be able to do this just fine. I think they red-shirt him.
