    I can't see him winning it this year, but he could certainly be a finalist with a big year and position himself as a real contender his senior year. It all starts up front. Handler's the key to our OL. Whenever CU's had a great center, we've had a great OL.

    whenever we've had a great OL, we've had a very good to great center imo. not sure it's automatic the other way.

    Which causes which?

    Or maybe they're tied together. No center can be a star without a strong OL unit to each side... and no OL can be great if it's got a poor C anchoring the middle.

    I think you make a great point. OL has to be thought of as a 5-headed monster. We've seen guys like Solder fail to meet fan expectations because the unit was sub-par.
