Obviously, those Northern referees' eyes just aren't able to keep up with your Southern speed, Shugarts, and hence, they're perceiving you're getting off the ball too soon. It is good to see him and Adams upon the field. Time for them to finally show that they've grown up and are willing to earn their keep.

I was watching Shugarts (76) all day because I believe the breakdown in the offense during the first two games was on the right side of the line. He is the fastest kid off the ball that I have watched at the college level. He needs to make an adjustment or he will be called off alot. He is a dominating force and a great pass blocker, I look for him to hold that position.
Adams (75) did a great job of making adjustments to his assignment and looks like he will live up to his potential.
The Block O class of 2012 on the field for the first time looked dominating and they will only get better.
There will be a National Championship with that group and Pryor.

Hope you're right. Haven't had a dominating presence at right tackle since Shane Olivea, imo. I'm expecting them to continue grow this year, and be regarded as one of the top 5 units in the nation. And the best heading into 2010.

With all the shuffling, I still don't see Conner Smith anywhere. And I didn't see him among the 65 man traveling squad.
I didn't see Keith Wells on the 65 man squad either.
What is the story with Smith and Wells?
Are they in Tressel's Doghouse?
Is the writing on the wall for Smith to leave the program as everyone has bypassed him on the depth chert and he is being asked not to come back next year?

There were rumors over the summer about Wells not coming back. Is he being redshirted to pickup some weight and move to the strongside, or is he in the doghouse?
