Fragel is playing great.
I have questioned this group a few times this year but I have been shown the error in my judgement
I believe all three turnovers was inside their 35 yd line and one around the 25 yd. line. That's at least 9 additional pts. We should have won anywhere from 10 to 22 pts. had it not been for the turnovers. But, give the Spartan's credit, they forced the turnovers, with the exception of when Braxton hyper-extended his knee.
From the outside looking in from a fan of a conference rival whom you are hosting this weekend, I'm thinking your O-line is just fine. I'm also thinking they will shove our D-line off the LOS with relative ease this weekend.
With Ed Warriner coming in you can look forward to fielding awesome O-lines for the foreseeable future.
I wonder if the OL will grade out to be a champion this week. After a few stellar performances the past couple of games, there were numerous hurries on Braxton, who I thought wasn't at his best in this game during the time he was playing. Need a better performance against PSU next week.
While I think our OL should rise to the challenge, Purdue has a very good DL for sure.
Band of Brothers
This is good to hear. My understanding is that when the OL is really good, they'll be doing everything together. It's an emergent property of playing together as an unit.

Bagels & Gatorade are healthy eating?
From the article:
Carbs and electrolytes. Carbs for anything after 20 mins of activity and electrolytes so they don't cramp up. Basic nutritional chem.
Two things from that article:
1. It's disappointing to hear how "bad" things were last year and presumably in years before that. Not that it's new news, but it'd be fun to see what some of Tressel's teams had been like if the o-line had been in different hands.
2. The salaries in CFB are insane. I understand that's a whole conversation/thread, and the free market drives it, but for a S&C guy to be making as much/more than Doctors and Surgeons is crazy. Not complaining... just something that jumped out at me.
If we had this year's OL and Ginn didn't get hurt in the end zone, I dare say we just may have beaten Florida in Glendale...
Of course things were "bad"...their coach was gone, and all they had to look forward to was the punishment of sanctions.
The good news is that the O-line is in different hands, and the results speak for themselves. Salaries? Simple...you get what you pay for.
