Interesting material for discussion, and some early evidence of significant improvement over last year.

There’s no doubt that the level of competition (USU, ULM and Vandy) has had some impact, so what this looks like after the Arkansas and aTm games will tell a lot.

Other random observations:
- This would say that Booker deserves even more playing time. Wonder if he starts in Fayetteville? If he doesn’t start (true freshman on the road for the first time against a frenzied crowd), maybe he plays the most?

- Arky’s OL may not be all it’s cracked up to be, at least in pass protection. A middle-of-the-pack showing despite blocking for a really mobile QB.

- aTm’s QB problems may be at least as much OL problems. They’re #11, which is bad enough in itself. But look at the scores. They’re closer to being last than to being even in the middle.

- Dalcourt is doing materially better than I thought.

How is this related OL grades? Seems like in the past I remember our OL grading out in the low 80s and high 90s.
