Q: Hey Dez! Hope all is well. Was watching some replays of games from last season and thought to myself “this team could have been pretty good offensively if the O-line just held their blocks.” Which got me to wondering, can fixing the offense be as easy as fixing the O-line this season? I understand the offense was a little bland and predictable of Deleone and certainly looks like it’ll be a little more exciting under Weist,but we had the playmakers last year at WR and RB just Whitmer had no time and McCombs had no holes. I know it’s not that easy of a task to improve the O-line, but if the Huskies do I can see them surprising a few teams this year – Jesse, Wolcott
A: Jesse, the offensive line certainly had its consistency issues but I think if you look a little closer at those replays you’ll see the skill positions weren’t as consistent as they could have been, either. They had opportunities to be productive and fell short as well. It hurts when you’re struggling and don’t make good on the cracks you get especially on deep balls. That being said, it all starts with the line. If the line is better – and with most of it returning it should be – then perhaps the entire unit could be better.
