This topic was created to exemplify what the true issue is...it is the substandard offensive line. It is not the wrs or even the QB.... It fully and finally hit me last night when I see Bredeson get blown off the ball for a sack. These guys we have look undersized as a whole, most look out of position, some shouldn't even be starting. Bill Martin's fiasco is still paying hurt dividends at the OL, and we still have not returned to a Michigan quality line that we had from Bo through Carr. We have Cole small and out of position at LT. Bredeson is lumbering and wouldn't be playing yet. Kugler wouldn't be starting, Onwenu would be considered out of shape and on bench. And this hole at RT. WOW. Total fail. Watching the game,the pocket repeatedly getting pushed into OKorn before throwing. This reminded me of Brady super bowl loss when he couldn't get a clean pocket. At beginning of year someone here was panicking about the OL, to which I referred to Harbaugh history at Stanford implying to give him benefit of doubt. When the poster freaked out about not getting a grad transfer, I again said give them the benefit of doubt. Well I was wrong, and I apologise to whoever it was. Now it appears that Drevno cannot recruit nor understand the big uglies in the Midwest to pursue, or that the players he got at Stanford were very heady enough to make grade there and the ones he is getting are not. This OL is the sole issue, and with a typical Michigan line of old, we would be 7-0. Getting Frey seems to be the right thing and it will take a few years before these recruits fill out, as watching the Indiana game their OL looked more like our old lines than ours. Our current personnel rearrangement to have a Michigan OL again is to put Freys tackle recuits at Tackle, Cole at LG. Ruiz At C. We are years away from this.
