    What will fix our OL problems?

    Just to much penetration by the Duke defense. I realize this is the first game so not going to panic. Are we missing assignments? Some of the running backs were side stepping the hole because it was closed.

    A lot of people playing new positions, so growing pains are inevitable. Which, frankly, makes, Sark's 2nd half play-calling and Tua's performance even more impressive.
    This is the darkest timeline.

    Time, reps, and film study.

    I was wondering if Duke followed the blueprint that others followed last year and committed to stopping one part of our game (the run) in hopes our passing would be off.

    I admit I was hoping to see a bit more from the OL, after all the talking heads had it pumped up during camp. For sure, there are enough stars and tonnage there for it to be good in theory.

    Duke was stacking the LOS, especially early. Still, given the difference between our OL talent level vs. Duke’s DL talent level, we should have done better.

    Not time to panic, but to have a chance to achieve our goals, we have to get better. I think we will, and it needs to start today.

    OL just needs more reps (games) in order to mature and develop consistency. I feel the coaches have plenty of "teachable moments" from the schemes Duke presented. IMO, this was a great first game kinda test for a inexperienced OL. RTR

    What can Brown do for you? Well , starting with game 5, be dominant at LG. Thatís when our line should gel for the stretch run. Until then, I think Evan Neal could be the main cog at that spot. Just for his mammoth size, his technique will get better with experience. Until then, I can see us running right for awhile. Itís not just the line, the backs and tight ends need better technique with chip blocking help! I saw a few whiffs.

    The starting lineup being unsettled and inexperience are the main issues I think. I believe they will improve with time.

    They also covered the deep pass pretty good. They gave us the short and intermediate passes, and we took advantage of it big time.

    OL is really one position not five individuals. In order for it to work well, it takes to work together. 4 guys can do their jobs perfectly while one guy whiffs and it looks awful. Once they settle in and become one unit, I think we will see better OL play.
