Mailbag July 27: No.1 Thing Diaco Has To Get Done This Year Strenghthen OL

Q: For me the #1 thing Diaco has to get done this year is strengthen the offensive line. That will help help the running game and give the QB time. What do you think? – Raymond Martineau, Steubenville, Ohio

A: I think that’s important no doubt. I think instilling in the team not finding ways to lose may be a tad bit bigger, at least in my view. The offensive line is part of the deal there, too. Sure, it has been an issue the previous three seasons but there have also been a number of games UConn could have and should have won but lost because something bad happened at the wrong time. Those things have to be kept to a serious minimum or eliminated altogether. That’s how you seal deals, win games. I think the mindset of the team has to go in that direction.
