At the center of the matter

For kicks and giggles, heading into bowl practice Emerson takes an early look at the 2015 depth chart. Probably the biggest question of the off season for the offense will be replacing Boss Andrews. Center is such a key position, and Andrews was a legitimate Rimington Trophy candidate this season. Not to mention the offensive MVP.

Sure, the new starting quarterback battle will get plenty of ink and page hits between now and next August. But we know Ramsey is the heir apparent. Who snaps the ball to him is truly up in the air.

Emerson lists Isaiah Wynn, Josh Cardiello, Hunter Long, and Kolton Houston as the candidates. I would add Brandon Kublanow in there as well. Much will depend on how some of those newer faces develop and where the key pieces fit.

The good news is that regardless, Will Friend is looking at four returning starters. That makes a lot of Dawg fans smile.
