    This is a great time to try people at different positions cause you never know what the season will bring. Any word on how he did?

    I guess CPJ saw my post from earlier about utilizing your better backups at the tackle position

    Should we start calling you Coach Ibeeballin or CIB?

    Does this signal that O'Reilly has taken hold of the Center position and isn't going to let it go?

    To me, this is not a good thing. It means our current tackles suck.

    I was hoping he hadn't reached his ceiling.

    I think we move OL around more than most schools in the country.

    It is worth seeing if Burden is better than what we got at T now...as I said last night in the chat the tackles are a big concern for us.

    It shows that he has a good lead...plus they feel Burden is more flexible than O'Reily.

    Been saying it for a while....if Devine is going to be a backup this season to Mason and Braun (or whoever), put him out at tackle for a run. If the guy is one of our best OLs, having him in reserve is a waste...especially since Tackle has been a weak spot for us pretty much since CPJ has been here.

    Kept telling people in another thread, if Burden beats out O'Reilly for C, our center position will be VERY good. O'Reilly is going to be a very good center for us barring injury.

    I hope we have a good backup for center. Everything starts at center!

    There must be a lot of guys injured for Sewak/Johnson to make this move. I am glad to see they are trying some different things. This tells me Devine is not lighting it up. Right now it looks like we have several potential tackle candidates banged up. It would be great to know a little bit more about what the actual situation is with the offensive line. I guess we will have to wait until the Spring game to get a look.

    I would guess that O'Reilly is number one at center, Mason and Braun are the number one guards and Griffin / Chamberlin and a player to be named later are currently leading at the tackle spots. Not hearing anything about Brigham, Joe or Muns. Maybe they are all injured.

    Go Jackets!

    Muns have moved to tackle as well...he moved over before the Spring.
    Errin Joe is at T.

    Devine has been playing fine so far.
