    Dude has a fantastic attitude. I hope to see his return to the OL next year.

    I'm going to predict... he's ready in a couple weeks.. starting LT by begin of Nov... and this line will be a mean fighting machine...
    I think Munford has done marvelously... but I'm a big Bowen fan...

    Bestbuck36 It's a brand new Day!!

    I'm down with that but I thinkI'd rather see him man right guard. Interior is where we're struggling.

    buchtelgrad04 Pain is an opinion.

    Highly doubt he starts at any point this season.

    Knox ain't going anywhere ...
    Based on his personal situation, I suspect he will go to extremes to start... and make his way to the show on Sundays

    Great to hear he is getting close. Its been a challenging two years for Branden.

    Just shocked he's getting close? Crazy considering he had surgery again.

    So glad to hear and if anything helps us big next season when we have to replace Prince/Knox.

    Agreed. Munford's graded as a champion in 2 of the 4 games I could find this season (I couldn't find info for the Oregon St. or Rutgers games).

    FWIW Bowen's plan is most likely to get to NFL after THIS season
    He's eligible.. he's married with child...

    Doesn't seem quick enough to be a LT

    It'd be great to see him come back and play again. Hopefully he can get back to the LG position because I think that's where he'd make the best impact.

    ScriptOhio Everybody is somebody else's weirdo.

    Just sayin'; He says he's coming back (above); maybe he means just this season, I don't know. I'm not sure he is "NFL caliber" at this point in his football career. He does have some family obligations for sure; however, I do know this is his Junior year and he'll be better off to pursue his "life after football" with a degree.

    sparcboxbuck What happened to my ┬Ącash?

    Did I miss something that suggested he was coming back in '18? Wasn't he just under the knife?

    Would love to see him come back, but I'm not believing that we see him until '19. And then, I think it takes a full solid year for him to show that he's NFL ready. I believe he can / will make it to the next level, but not this year. If he does, imma convert Mormon cuz that's borderline a miracle.

    Not sure that many teams will even give him a look with what little playing time he has. If he does declare, he'd better combine his ass off...

    sparcboxbuck What happened to my ┬Ącash?

    While I'm sure that this is a motivation, I found it astounding how many guys I went to school with who had kids at home... and that was back in the late '80s. I'm also quite certain that a part of my astonishment had to do with my relatively sheltered small-town Ohio upbringing. Read: He's hardly alone on this count.

    At this point, that extra year, to Mili's point, would likely significantly benefit him. There's just not enough tape yet.

    Furthermore, I suspect that he's one who will end up doing more in life after football than he will do on the field. And that's not a knock. I just think that he's going to do well for himself with his diploma regardless of an NFL stint.
