    Bahk is back.
    Munyer is day to day (sounds like he won the C job prior to the injury).
    Dannewitz is preparing at both LT and RT for now.
    Shawn Daniels is running, but still a few weeks away (Maybe back for UW).

    OL has improved since the Hawaii game. Still think the talent is lacking overall to be an above average OL.

    I am happy to see Tau has been serviceable since finally getting in. It was scary seeing a guy who was a 5th year SR never get any game action, made me think other than the practice and academic issues, could he actually play

    Tau it seems would be a better fit at guard no?

    Good to hear bak is back. If we can stay healthy from here on out, that would be a big boost. Too bad tuioti had the injuries and givens lost his head, could have a damn good OL.

    When Marshall said Bakhitari was their best OL, wonder what miller thought of that.

    Miller has been an under achiever his whole career.

    Agreed, maybe. If you're thinking like I'm thinking -- Tau just doesn't quite have the footwork for T. Yet, there were a couple of pass plays were a smaller DE got in his chest and pushed him back, so the question is, does he have the brute strength for G? Not sure, but it does seem like a more natural fit for him.

    Oh, a kudos to young mr Tau for coming in and performing last Saturday.

    This. Always be cautious about the guys who talk about how hard they are going and how much they are going to dominate. I'm still waiting for Miller to show me something other than the personal foul reverse plop-down.

    Miller has been surrounded by inexperienced or undertalented guys his whole career. Anyone who can handle Suh like he did is pretty good. I will say this again, especially at guard, you have to have guys around you at center especially who are at least serviceable. Otherwise you do not look that good. O-line is a collective persuit.

    Tau is a big strong kid, but his feet are slow. I watched him at the spring game in '08 and wondered why he didn't move to DT. He is a huge dude and would be a load at DT, especially if they went to a 3-4. He has done well filling in and I am glad to see him get some PT.

    Miller is a beast, but hasn't really shined. I do think he'll get a shot at the next level.

    I'm coming around to WyoBuff's PoV, and not just because disagreeing with a human mountain terrifies me. Looking at the tape, Miller is pretty consistently beating down his man (even when he doesn't sit on them), and really looks great in space.

    Anyone hear how the Linemen are grading out so far this year. I don't know much about the process but a lot is made out of it.

    Looks like they aren't issuing grades this year... but Miller is leading with 12 pancakes. Only Dannewitz (surprisingly) is close with 9. I have a feeling most of those pancakes are coming on screen passes though.

    Don't know if it's coincidence or not, but the offense really started rolling when Tau came in to take over RT and Dannewitz moved back to LT...

    With Bahktiari back, I'm excited to see what we can do. I think Dannewitz is definitely gonna take that RT spot. Now, if only there was something to do about Adkins... sigh.

    They are putting the figures in bold if they grade out at over 80%. It looks like Dannewitz was the only guy to do so in the CSU game.

    I just don't see how Adkins is grading out that high. Every time I see a failed run play, I see adkins ****ing something up.
