Offensive Line- What Was Our Expectation?

We all wanted to win 49-0 last night, but the folks here at Gamecockillustrated.com will take a win anytime we can get it. By the way, it says here that at the end of the season UTM will be in the top 1/3 of the OVC standings.

In any event, before we jump off a bridge because things weren’t as pretty as we hoped, consider this:

Left Tackle, Tarik Milner – starting his first college game;

Left Guard, Matt Jones- had not played a game in over a year because of injury;

Center, Max Holcombe- starting his first college game;

Right Guard, Michael- “Big Spank Dogg” Ellis- played defensive line last year;

Right Tackle, T. Mobley- the only guy that has played a ton uninterrupted by injury.

The Gamecocks have talent on the offensive line. It may just take a little while to get it back. The good news is that by the time we get back in the conference schedule, Odie Rush a heck of a tackle may be ready to return.
