    Pretty sure it was West talking about the D-line, but I will have to go back to GBR.com to see if I can find the article. Not sure how far back they archive articles on there. We’ve had some decent O-lines in the past and given what the O-line lost from last year would be mildly surprised if Franklin would have been singing their praises.

    tony franklin on o-line during fall camp:

    ...Offensive coordinator Tony Franklin isn't too worried.

    “The thing that I felt like with this group is that they have the potential to be the most physical group I've coached since I’ve been here,” Franklin said. “They play hard, like each other, and that’s what they’ve shown so far. We’ve got several guys that can play, and right now they’re playing some good football.”

    For one thing, there's depth.

    Of the 24 offensive linemen listed on the roster, 14 are underclassmen, including 11 freshmen.....

    It'll be interesting to see how the OL does in conference play.

    What's interesting to me is this is the fifth game, so if there any players the staff is planning to redshirt, we may not see them the rest of season including this game. I would have like to see a conference game come before the fifth game of the season to get a clue on what we have against teams with similar talent.

    Can you play in any 4 games, not just the first 4 games?

    I believe that to be correct, but I am just wondering if there are players that have been used in the first four games the staff want to sit down and redshirt...

    Good to see CRS emerge from his cave. As you can see the kids were really pumped.

    Just painful to watch...students were actually avoiding eye contact. He showed zero emotion, zero energy.

    Not sure what is more sad, the video with Stock or that someone from our athletic department posted it online.

    Both of those sun up MT athletics in a nutshell.

    I was thinking the same thing, why would you post something that feels dead?

    Well, to be fair....none of the students probably knew who he was since he hardly ever does that sort of thing. They may have thought he was that old guy who goes back to school late doing his marketing internship.

    I'm not really even excited about this game. All I want is Dante Houston to have a great time and ultimately commit.

    Looks like the dnj was finally embarrassed by the comments and deleted that tweet and put up a new one... They're already better than cnn or nytimes

    It’s still not right. Article says it is on TV on CBSSN. It’s done by CBS Sports but is only being broadcast on Facebook. My land.

    Guys and gals, I’m sitting here watching the Marshall D-Line in pregame warm-ups and their position coach. He is not like Tommy West. This guy is nuts.

    It’s gonna be ugly. Calling it right now. He’s screaming at them to “get to the QB quick and we win!”
    They are all huge. Saying a prayer for Asher right now.
