    It's going to be awhile - try mid-August or beyond - before Steve Marshall feels comfortable putting together anything that resembles a depth chart.

    great quote

    "You could tell (Monday) it was their first time doing it for some of them - ever. There was more intensity (Tuesday), you could hear the pads. (Monday) was like a pillow fight. (Tuesday) they hit. That was encouraging, especially it being the second day (in pads). There was a lot of energy, they were physical. They're figuring it out. I'm glad that they're getting better and pushing through this."

    Isn't this the complete opposite of our last few years on the OL? Everyone had to be able to play every position or something?

    While I agree with the concept of getting one position down before going to others, injuries have forced our hand a bit this spring. Munyer has been playing center even though his future is at guard. The silver lining on that is that if he is playing center he is learning the line calls, learning how to read the defense, and should be better able to play early if called upon. Time at center is great schooling for an interior lineman.

    Yeah I saw that, just thought it was interesting that he was emphasizing staying at one position for the younger guys so they can maybe contribute earlier. Line play really isn't my thing, it just seems to me like Marshall knows a whole hell of a lot more about it than DJ did.

    *mildly excited*

    I thought it was interesting that they'll be evaluating the recent practices to see where in-coming frosh may be needed, and/or who might be red-shirted. I'm impressed that they're looking at this already, based on analysis.
