    I've noticed the line doesn't do a dance side step before they engage anymore.

    ShowMeBuck You know what? Chicken butt.

    It's simply amazing to me how quickly the OL group has went from being near critical condition to stable and improving. 2 reasons for this: We closed out the 2012 class with a few awesome gets in O'Connor, Decker and Dodson and then we have the influence of Coach Warinner. Does anyone even remember how bad of shape it looked like we would be in with this position group and the OL prospects last fall? My goodness how quickly things change. If we somehow land Dorian Johnson I think it will be the quickest turn around for a position group I have ever seen. Even without him the impact of Coach Warinner can not be overstated. Dude is the real deal and he is my vote for best assistant coach this year. No disrespect to Herman who has been solid too but Warinner has been to the O Line like Alan Mulally has been to Ford Motor. Perfect guy for the job.

    Edit: Tons of credit needs to be placed on the starters too of course, I just meant that they have been coached VERY well and the cupboards went from bare to fairly well stocked seemingly overnight with regards to depth issues. Read somewhere that Jimmy Byrne has been paying close attention to our line this year and is very impressed with what he has seen. We would never get that kind of response out of the walrus.

    I agree with ShowMeBuck. Coach Warinner has done a fantastic job with our O Line, and even the 2nd team came in against Illinois and kept moving the ball down the field. It's exciting to think about some of the young guys (such as Decker, Farris, O'Connor, Dodson, Jacoby Boren, Elflein, Lisle, and Gardner) and how good they will become.

    The job Warriner has done has been border-line spectacular.

    Losing the 3 best OL from last year and with little depth manufacturing a superb OL is a miracle. Keep in mind the class brought in to suceed the Block O consisted of Brown, Underwood, Bobek, and Carter.
    The OL is the strength of the team (along with Miller).

    As a side note provided without comment.
    BC and their historically top shelf ground game ranks 118 and they have 0 OL commits for the class of 2013.

    No disrespect, but "stable and healthy" shouldn't be the catch phrase for this year's OL. They have outright dominated the LoS after a couple of games of "stable and healthy" performance. I am the first one to get excited when the OL performs, and I have to say that they are a very good unit this year. This is awesome work by Warinner.

    Ohio State is set at O-line as long as he stays with Ohio State as your O-line coach. You're going to have dominant O-lines for the foreseeable future with this guy coaching.

    I honestly can't remember the last time I've felt this confident about being in 3rd and short and especially 4th and short. In the Bollman years you had to wonder whether the o-line could pick up even half a yard when it mattered.

    OSU needs to pay Coach Warinner whatever he wants.

    Need to make sure that Coach Warinner is a happy man. I don't like all of these jobs opening up and someone grabbing him so soon.
