    I read the article this morning, and was also surprised to see Stud was not mentioned in terms of future plans for the OL. While I would like him gone, he hasn't been shown the door yet, so I think he will stay put. But if Miles is answering all questions and not talking about his OL coach, it sounds as if he will be taking an active role in the spot. Seeing as how the OL was a strong component in every season he has been here save the last, I'd say that's a good thing.:miles:

    At least Miles was honest about the problems. Thats promising.

    This is pretty much what I got from it as well. Considering that the OL is Miles area of expertise having it be the weak link in the offense last season I am sure doesn't sit well with him. I don't think it will matter much to him who is the OL coach, because I don't think he is leaving that area in the hands of anyone but himself for this coming season. A calculated risk, but really the only choice he has to make it be as strong as he wants and needs it to be.

    That's what I am hoping for. Even if JJ remains the same for next year, an improved offensive line wil block him better, and a sound running game, due to that same offensive line, will produce a greater offense all around. If he is taking over it, he can silence many critics of him, Crowton, Stud, and JJ by doing well against North Carolina

    Heres how it should go down next year.
    Barksdale-LT
    Hurst-LG
    Longeran-C
    Blackwell-RG
    Faulk-RT

    Im not sold on Josh D, he looked bad this past season, maybe he will be a better Tackle than guard.

    im really excited about Hurst, that guy can move for his size and will block people off their azz.

    It can work, but I don't think we've seen the end of Hebert. All of the pieces are there for a killer OL with some sound coaching. And anybody under three hundred pounds needs to start eating hamburgers dipped in lard like there's no tomorrow:)

    Parsons will probably play some FB.
    Williford will probably need another year before he contributes
    Lowe will get some PT next year
    Hagans will probably fight for the spot at center and guard
    Branch will need another year to fill out and play Tackle
    Shaw will play next season and will be heavy in the rotation
    Dominque is going to play fullback

    I agree, we have players who haven't progressed, and upperclassmen on the line who have regressed. I generally don't pound on the coaches as much as some (we got outcoached is the most overused simplistic arguement in football, IMO) but I wouldn't mind Stud being shown the door.
