We can all agree that the OL did not look good during the spring practice. I may be grasping at straws, but a recent interview with Funk (done by Sam Webb) makes me more optimistic about the OL.
First, it appears that Funk himself had to learn a lot of new stuff (he watched tapes from Alabama). Second, a lot of time was spent on learning the new techniques and terminologies. Both of these are quite disruptive and will take time for the new system to synch in. Third, a lot of time was lost during the year and then spring to injuries. It seems that the entire OL has not really practiced together this spring. Putting all together, I have this guarded optimism that by the start of the BIG, the OL will be holding its own.
