    i remain optimistic until proven otherwise, methinks time together to gel will heal many mistakes.

It’s not just the line, the backs and tight ends need better technique with chip blocking help! I saw a few whiffs.
    Brown will actually be back game three versus USCe (four game suspension- Oklahoma, Clemson, Duke, and NM State).

    Having him back should help considerably with Wills really being the only guy out there yesterday with significant game reps.

    Major thing I want to see is this line “getting off” in the run game and re-establishing the LOS then getting to the second level. The only way you get there is by working together as a unit.

    Time to gel. IIRC, 3 freshman played yesterday.

    This in my opinion. Communication will no doubt improve. D. Brown is a proven commodity. There`s plenty of raw talent.

    Duke didn't really bring too many to block. They were basically doing a 3-3 zone blitz most passing downs. Sometimes they'd bring a 6th guy but it was mostly just 5 man rushes from what I recollect. The problems were identifying the pressures and responding to any line games at the snap. Guards looked the worse but may've been put in a bad position due to the line calls by the center or quarterback. The fixes are simple to type but likely harder to achieve on the field: more practice and better technique. Furthermore, we rotated a lot of linemen even in the first half so it is safe to say the staff treated this like a preseason game on the OL. Once they settle into a starting group I imagine the performance will improve.
    I owe it to the people to have a signature...so here goes nothing!

    I hope you’re right, but everything I’ve read says he’s suspended for the first 4 games of this season.

    Good to know about Brown getting back.

    If we are having this conversation next week after game 2, I'll be much more concerned.

    Well, the coaching staff now has game film to id the things that need the most work. The line has had a game to take the first steps to get communication and gelling started. It's going to take a couple of games to be sure but the line will be ok. Plus, Duke actually had a pretty solid Dline. They played well and well disciplined. They were also really quick.

    After giving it some thought...
    Our OL didn't get the job done.
    If Duke could get to our QB, and contain our RBs...
    We got a problem.
    We won pretty impressively, I put that on Tua, and on schemes Duke wasn't prepared for.
    Tua and our receivers were impressive.
    Sark called a very good game in the 2nd half.
    AND... Our overall team speed was impressive.
    We had the better athletes.
    We will need a much better performance by the time
    we play TAMU.
    We need a better performance from our RBs,
    our Offensive Line, and we better be able to
    make some Field Goals.

    I was pretty impressed by the overall play of our Defense.

    COACH SABAN IS ALREADY IN MID SEASON FORM.
    (Thank Goodness)

    If that's true, then that would be 6 games of suspension. Hopefully, it's 4 games, including the 2 playoff games.

    I hate to say it, but, I start by replacing Owens at center. He was getting destroyed, pushed back into the backfield most of the game.

    Hate to tell y’all this, but from what I remember, it is a 6 game suspension. 2 games from last year and the first 4 for this year.

    Now, all that being said, I wouldn’t be mad if he came back after NMSU. Would love to be proven wrong.

    Roll Tide!!
