Senior OL, man. 

I swear (kinda), we should just load on more OL in 2019 class. I see harbaughffense of mashing OL's year after year coming near you very soon.

JBB looks the part, and is a man at run blocking....   its the pass pro thats well below average...some games i'd cringe watching it, then be amazed how equally and opposite he was at run blocking... if he can improve at pass pro then he could be decent.  i wish he'd just pop the rusher immediately, like he does in run blocking...instead he backs way up and lunges.

The other top tackle was Coy Cronk. When he graduates and retires from football, he should open a boxing gym.

 I hope the Patriots draft him. ”Gronk and Cronk” could be the next great buddy-cop movie. It would be awesome to get John Madden to come back from retirement to announce just one of their games. (Is he still alive?)

”There’s Cronk, makin’ da block, anddenya got Gronk, makin’ da catch {slobbers gently on himself.} Whap, bang, Cronk andda Gronk, heh heh heh, CRONK!” {more slobbering...}

Failing to advance commentary based on actual and current evidence is an affliction of the lazy-including the media and a whole bunch of people on this board.

Agreed. He played well enough while he was in. We would have won with competent quarterbacking. I think we would have won the Bowl game if played in that game. The early season narrative would have been different if we won the bowl game. A) No one would be talking about 4 losses in a row and B) 9-9 would not have been a thing. We need more offensive line depth so we can handle multiple issues (Newsome injury, LTT cut, JBB suspended for bowl game.)

3 UM players same as UM Offense =/> than OSUs...right? :)

Joking aside...its good to see JBB and the rest of the O grow week to week..but the real test starts this week. Would love to see a UM tackle on this list come a week from now.

Lest we all forget Michigan should have and would have beaten OSU last year if they had a QB with a pulse. And they should have also won in 2016 if the referees weren't all secretly members of the Columbus Kiwanis Club. A loss is a loss, but the gap is narrowing and is certainly not as wide as people make it out to be.

PFF has a weird way of measuring performance, so I'm always dubious of these lists.  JBB played well this week, but I'm not sure we should read too much into this.  Keep it going a couple of weeks.
