Ching pulls together in one story the vast difference between the offensive line this spring compared to last. Perhaps center David Andrews put it best:
Having enough bodies to run reps is something we shouldn't have to worry about, even with a couple of injuries. And now the coaches are faced with a better problem to have - knowing which of those bodies are part of the rotation this fall.
One more point and then a question. I've heard and read Greg come to this conclusion several times, but how important is it for Coach Bobo, coming off an off season where he received a substantial raise and a multi-year contract, to have an offensive line he has confidence in? As a play caller it has to be huge to not feel handicapped by a green and grossly over-manned offensive line.
And lastly, looking back at last year this time and hoping that a veteran defensive line could make a youthful offensive line better prepared, can the opposite be true this season? Even though overall the defense under-performed last season, there's no question that guys like Jenkins, Jones and Kwame helped make the offensive line more polished and ready for the trenches of the SEC. So can a cohesive unit on the offensive side make a youthful defensive front more ready for South Carolina in week two?
Certainly something to look for in the coming months.
