  2. "Continuity is real important because you get to learn everybody's tendencies and get to know what they're thinking throughout the course of a game," said Olivea, a three-year starter at Ohio State. "You learn what area guys are going to be in and what they're seeing. It's an ongoing process, and I think we're getting better and better every week at recognizing different things and helping each other out.

    "It's getting a little evident that we're starting to play together and building cohesiveness. We're more confident in each other; everybody knows what they're doing. They always say, once you're confident in what you're doing you can just go out there and play, and I think that's what we're sort of doing."

    Where do you think he learned all this stuff. It didn't just pop into his head. I believe we have a good line coach. I just believe that We don't have a running back with ross in there that can get the job done. he doesn't understand the zone blocking scheme.

    Maybe they just gave him a belt. Being able to use both hands to block rather than pulling his pants up every play would make a world of difference.

    All kidding aside he is probably getting much better o-line coaching now than he did at OSU.

    Right, because the last couple weeks when Ross has had either no or very little attempts, our running game has suddenly looked like Eddie is running back there again.

    While things have indeed looked somewhat better, there is still a ton of work to be done until we progress to the point of being able to run the ball like Ohio State should.

    I disagree. I think the fact that a fourth rounder and seventh rounder can move right in and start for two NFL teams right away send a clear message that this staff was not getting the greatest amount of potential out of these lineman.
    Even during the NC run I can't remember anyone being overly happy about that line's performance. It seemd that many times MoC was getting yards on his own and that CK was constantly scrambling around for his life.
    There's something to be said for SO. This guy is not only starting but starting for a team that is one of the best offensive machines in the NFL right now.
    WOW!
    I think this staff needs to get more out of the talent they have at that position. I refuse to believe we are as bad as we look at times on the offensive line.
