    Olson has also played winning football at guard. The OL didn’t start to click until he joined the starting lineup last year. He doesn’t get enough credit on these forums. Maybe some can’t get past the fact that he is a former walk-on.

    Ramos and Hudson were both on the participation chart against WVU.

    More likely they can’t get past the fact he’s listed as 6’1”.

    I think Olsen has been good as well. It seems like we have our best offensive linemen inside. I have to eat crow a little bit about JGJ and Bryce Meeker as they have been playing a lot better as the year has gone on, but our inside has definitely been our strength. I feel our best 5 include Newell for sure, but don't think any combination of Newell, Olsen, Downing can play outside. I am also not sure if Knipfel can play outside either. I know the rule is play the best 5, but that is hard to do when some of our best 5 can't play certain positions.

    One smacked him in the chest last week when he wasn't looking for the snap yet. Perfect snap though...

    There was at least one where Purdy one handed it clear to the right and still managed to complete the play. Olsen has had a challenging snap in almost every game. Maybe that is normal, but I still contend that Purdy has done a great job of catching the errant ones.

    If it helps your cogitation at all, CW said on a podcast a couple of weeks ago that Newell has the length to play tackle. I’d assume that would be left tackle, and I’d also assume that’s a nugget he picked up from a member of the staff somewhere.

    we also need to prepare for next year, when we can. lots of newbies on the line. I'll trust the process and we have never played so many 2nd & 3rd stringers or had the depth we have... however...

    Hopefully we engineer some more beat downs to get those guys extended time so we can hit the ground running next year

    Last two weeks Olson has had snaps that could of caused turnovers. Might be time for Newell.
    Doubt Downing goes back to the bench.

    Ramos looked dominant. Thinking JGJ should get a look at RT.

    Graduating 4 lineman normally causes a set back but both the RFR look like vets. I also thing Treiber and Hufford are going to push Foster and Hudson for the two remaining spots.

    Isn't Foster a senior?

    I think it's likely him and Hudson are 2nd team next year also.

    Treiber and Hufford might be tough to hold back.

    When JGJ went down with the injury yesterday, how did we shuffle our line?

    Ramos looked really good during his brief appearance.

    My two cents: No injuries? Then don't shuffle a lineup that's on a winning streak.

    When Downing went out for a play or two (Bruns said he needed his fingers taped), Schweiger came in, not Newell. Since Newell can also play both guard spots, guessing he’s not ready yet.
