I'm new to blogging, so I ask, are diaries the same as threads? I wish to discuss the Coach McFarland interview posted at CN, but I don't know what format here to use.
If Tibbs moves from RT to OG, as McFarland suggests in the interview, I've got some questions that might open up a discussion:
1. Is Tibbs being counted on to play guard? If so, since I believe a three-man rotation is what the coaches prefer, who's out? (Tibbs, Schmeling, Stephens, Blaes, also Alvarez was backup at RG during spring ball, I believe.)
- It sounds as though McFarland might be counting on Lamaak (sp) and maybe Hulbert even though they're just rFr. Although you'd think, generally, coaches like tall guys at OT, could McFarland be thinking about moving an athletic Blaes to RT?
- McFarland did not mention Johnson at center, IIRC. Might have been an oversight only. Although he did say Schmeling might play some center. I wonder if Schmeling might not be the interior line utility man this fall, starting at one guard slot and backing up at center.
- Is RT the key position on the line yet undecided? Appears that way to me. What do you all think? Anyone have any inside knowledge about what the thinking is about the O-line at this point?
Based on Sheppard's interview at CN (go read it if you haven't, it's free access and highly informative), I can't help but think this team could be fiesty this fall -- if the O-line performance can reach toward average.
(I'm pretty confused right now about tag lines, diary and extended diary. Have I posted correctly?)
