    I thought that they played well vs UNI minus a few plays in pass protection. They struggled against Baylor though. Other than that game, they've done pretty well.

    On top of the OL play, we've gotten really good blocking out of the WRs. Especially Pettway and Shaw.

    Only game where I was disappointed in O line afterwards was UNI, but watching replay of that game they weren’t bad.

    TEs are blocking better in run game now also

    Replacing the tackles appears to be the biggest concern right now. A couple of guys have stepped in and played a little at tackle in reserve roles, and for the most part have done okay as far as I can recall.

    As someone said earlier, the average fan doesn't notice an OL unless they destroy the guy on the others side or the get beat badly. It will be a big story for next years team. The DL is going to have to replace some guys, but we have seen some younger guys excel there, so it is a concern, but not as big as the OL. Gonna miss Lima....

    This is who I am expecting to start next year. Downing, Newell, Ramos, Hudson and Foster. I hope Foster has kept engaged and continued to work on his craft. The team can get one year of good production from his scholarship. Of course I have no insights behind the scenes, there could be some freshman (red-shirt freshmen next yr) who are ready to make an impact ahead of schedule.

    I watched some of UNI Saturday afternoon. How in the heck does that first game even happen. ISU is night and day different.

    I was critical last year and into this year. With historic talent like Montgomery, ISU was still well into the bottom half of FBS in rushing. Thought there would need to be some fine tuning of the starting five to get things fixed. Happy to have been wrong. Hope the Seniors finish strong.

    Outside of the Baylor and UNI game, they have played well.

    Is JGJ ready to go against OSU? He was limping noticeably when he came out of the game on Saturday.
