Sport on discussion about the OL, especially about our tackles and the challenges they face. Because it's highly probable this will be a problem all season it almost automatically puts Cozart and Cummings at the 1 and 2 QBs due to their mobility.

Building an OL is really hard and Gill left noting, after the very good returning senior class, to build with. If somehow we find a couple of competitive tackles, we can be bowl bound. If not, it will be another long year with 2-4 wins, max.

I think we have enough talent on the line. I just don’t think Grunhard’s professional experience made him a good OL coach.

While Reagan was previously at KU he was turning 2 and 3 star recruits into All-Conference and even professional players. And he was doing it quickly.

Anthony Collins, Jeff Spikes, Jeremiah Hatch, David Ochoa, Ryan Cantrell. These guys were all 2 or 3 star guys coming in. There are others I can’t think of right now too. Adrian Mayes?

He did the same thing at Rice. He built a killer Oline and then ran a potent offense, punctuated by the run.

Honestly (including the RB stable) I’m not sure Reagan has ever had this much talent at his disposal, and he’s got to be drooling with Jacob Bragg and Apa Visinia coming in.

Longshot guess. Among Fusimaholi, Martin and Smithburg, two guys will get some recognition at the end of the season. Even if it’s just honorable mention all-conference.

In Reagan I trust. His track record speaks for itself.
