    Gentleman and ladies, you have just seen desperation. We are officially in panic mode on the OL. I'm still in shock that our 3d string LT and RT didn't give up a single sack to Cal.

    I'm not dissing the coaches with that post. This is not their fault. Sometimes, panic is warranted. At least they have a plan. And for now, I have faith in Marshall to patch something together. And their is still the hope that bahktiari returns.

    I still don't get how this is "panic" Coaches need bodies. Next on the list is true freshman. Not sure what they are doing different than what any other coaching staff would do.

    If Bakhtiari is ready to play, we're in ok shape. We'll have to settle on a RT, whether that's Lewis or Dannewitz. But Bakhtiari may not be healthy yet and those other guys may not be the solution. I think it's right that the coaches are thinking about starting Miller at RT and shuffling the guards.

    We've got a long, long way to go to end the season. Hopefully our OL keeps healthy for the next 13 games!

    agreed -- then fill the guard spot with Crabb or Asiata.
