Brady Hoke believes football is won in the trenches with bruising OL and DL play.
Under Rodriguez there were a couple of notable position switches, and I'm wondering whether they will stick under Hoke:
DT Will Campbell-73 from DT to OL (OT)
OG/OT Quinton Washington-76 from OL to DT.
CB Teric Jones to RB
The defensive line loses Banks, but looks to be in the best shape since 2008:
Jibreel Black, Mike Martin, Ryan Van Bergen and Craig Roh make a nice front four. Then there's DT Richard Ash and 5-start Will Campbell, if he were switched back to DT.
As for Quinton Washington's move to defense, I'm not opposed to this. The added depth doesn't hurt.
As for Teric Jones to RB last year, I did not understand this move. He had 3 carries for 7 yards. With James Rogers graduating, but J.T. Floyd and Woolfolk likely returning at CB, I would think a switch back to defense for Teric (RS So elig.) would make sense.
What do people think?
