Friedgen Examines Offensive Line

The offensive line unit has been an interesting one to examine through three games. A veteran group that was regarded as arguably the strongest in the ACC has been a mixed bag. The line really struggled in the MTSU loss, allowing an undersized MTSU defensive line to pressure quarterback Chris Turner throughout.

Coach Ralph Friedgen said yesterday that right guard Phil Costa is “by far our best offensive lineman right now. He has been playing very well and is very solid and consistent.” Friedgen said center Edwin Williams has played okay, and that tackle Scott Burley, left guard Jaimie Thomas and right tackle Dane Randolph can play better.

What does everyone think about the play of the line? Sure, it has been up and down, but it is opening up holes for Da’Rel Scott, who is fifth nationally in rushing. Or do you give Scott most of the credit for that?

Personally I've beeen somewhat disappointed by the line thus far. I didn't get to catch the great MTSU debacle, but even in the Cal game I think Turner was sacked 4 times or something on only 20 some passing plays. We are all raving about our 5 sacks when they're throwing 50+ times while they get one fewer on half as many attempts.

The running holes have been decent, but it could be even better. Scott has done most of his damage off tackle, but Meggett is really shifty and has been able to take the small holes the line provides for him and turning them into something more.
