kick 'em in the ass, big blue.
I agree with you!
We've got much room for improvement on both sides of the ball. Our offensive and defensive lines need to improve but hey, let's be honest here.... between 5 on offense and 4 on defense we returned exactly 2 of 9 starters in that all important area.
Of all positions on the field, it's the linemen who take the longest time to physically mature into their positions. Our best days in the trenches are in front of us.
as for the naybob who wants to diss the offense or defense....let me just make two points.
1. On offense, Malzahn's offense has been in the top ten of NCAA stats every year he's been a coordinator....coincidence? I think not. Want to call it simplistic or 'high school?' Go ahead... Whatever you run, if you execute it well... will work. We execute our scheme at a very high level. The results speak for themselves.. period.
2. On defense, we're young on the D line. When you are inexperienced there, everyone in the back 7 is under attack constantly. If you're a LB, you're getting clobbered by an offensive lineman because nobody on the D line demands a double team like Fairly did last year. If you're a safety in run support you're showing up 1 on 1 without the LB to help you because the line allowed the lb to be taken out by lineman. It's a numbers game. When you have two guys there to make a tackle... you usually get the guy down... but not so much when it's just 1 on 1. Be patient. We will get better play out of our d line as the year goes on.... immediately everyone else will look better when they do.
