    Com'on tibor, at least be fair. Those are some might impressive GPA numbers.. They might not be able to block, but they sure as hell know their quadratic equations..

    I personally think what other people on the radio and other media outlets say, which is that it is technique. Jim Bollman should have been fired after last season, and this season he should be fired again. We lose the line of scrimage battle on nearly every play. I don't think it is talent, but rather scheme. If it is talent, then there is no excuse for why we aren't getting linemen. We run the ball, we have a great tradition, we have run a heisman campaign for a lineman and got him to New York. Linemen should want to play here, unless the coach isn't very good, the recruiting effort is weak, or we are going for the wrong guys.

    I hate to say it but look at Minnesota's line and how they block, then look at scUM's then look at ours.

    Bottom line Fire Jim Bollman, he isn't a good O-coodintator, but he is a worse offensive line coach.

    Don't blame Bollman for the O-coord woes. He's that in title only.

    But I agree, he has shown zero when it comes to teaching and coaching the O-line. I can't recall the last game I really felt our O-line was the better of the two on the field. Team like NW and Marshall are driving our guys 5 yards off the LoS on rushing plays and giving their QB's all day long. Ours collpases on many pass plays and does nothing but maybe hold the D-line at a neutral position on rushing plays. No driving the defense back at all.

    I would like to think that the improvement in our OL over the last two seasons has as much to do with Peterson's involvement as anything else.

    That's ignorant, scott.

    Look at the way they were playing when the comment was made.

    He had every right to believe so. He didn't say anything about potential, he said that they hadn't shown him anything yet. And he was right.

    Thank god he didn't stay right, though.
