O-line looks promising


Here is Tom Keegan's short preview of the '09 O-Line. (sweet rhyme there.) I like this part the most: "This much is certain: The five best offensive linemen will start, not the five linemen with the most potential. "Potential gets me fired,"KU offensive line coach John Reagan said when discussing the prospects for the line as the spring season got under way. "It’s nice when you have guys competing for jobs. Not competing by default, competing because they’ve got the ability to compete. It generally does make you better." I suspect the biggest difference between the football team now, and where it was four years ago, is depth rather than the quality of the top eight or ten players.

I think it has come down to Tony Thompson (3B KU) and J.T. Wise (C OU), but I haven't written off a few others. What do you think?
