    Don’t get me wrong I think hev kills u in recruiting but they looked like a legit offensive line yesterday for the first time in a very long time. Poor Delance got abused a few times as usual but over all they looked physical. Can’t say this enough , Kingsley and Ethan are probably the best linemen we have. Theyrr both the goods. Have a nasty streak in them. No doubt in my mind theyll be a pros It’s nice to have a capable o line again. Hope this is a sign of things to come.

    RPO with a running QB makes all the difference. Requires defense to have a spy on QB that impacts running lanes and pass coverage. Something Franks and Trask could not do as well

    I think we still lead the country in rush yards, even after the Gumps. The o-line is for real. Hevesy has coached them up well; that's why Mullen has his back.

    Gators OL dominated Bana's 5 star DL. Kudos!

    It's up to the coaches to grade 'em out, but it seemed like Tarquin played well after Delance went down.

    Braun came in a bunch too. I think Delance came back in the 3rd and 4th quarter though and still played well

    Pretty amazing after the complete lack of running push we’ve had for the last years. They opened up holes for Davis to run right up the middle.

    By the way, Davis is averaging 6.8 yds/carry so far. Right where he was in his tremendous freshman year.

    If Delance came back in, that's great news. The way he was holding his knee, I thought his season was over.

    The O-line wasn’t good, they were dominant. Every one of those Bama D-lineman will go on to play in the NFL & our line whipped their butts.

    Eguakun has changed everything. He was dominating yesterday.

    Big Rich is playing at an All SEC level as well. All I heard this last week was Bama’s front 7, specifically their LBs, were elite and would feast on our OL. Oh well.

    Hev has been crucified all off season and I can’t say I wasn’t part of the criticism but damn …that was impressive.

    Delance played very well before getting hurt.....he came back and finished the game but was clearly not the same. Got beat inside several times.
    Tarquin actually held his own when Delance was out, and Braun was good when Reese got hurt

    So what is the status of these guys? Gamble hurt, Delance hurt, Reese hurt. That's quite a dent in our line.

    Exactly. Mullen did a great job of creating an offense around his QBs' talents his first two years. Now Mullen has QBs that fit the the offense wants to run. This is a lot better for the offensive line.

    I love all our backs really. Well I don’t know Lingard or Bowman very much, but RB seems to be the position where we could be best sustain multiple injuries. (Though I still pray that doesn’t happen)

    Considering how fans wanted Delance benched a long time ago, it nice to see him get some production in before he got hurt.

    The big uglies has a lot to do with effort and attitude. GA Southern abused us a few years ago, does anyone really think they were better than us?
