Wilson on the other side of him seemed to take a step back from the end of 2018 without Farmer next to him. He improved as the year went on, but early on the middle three were just awful.

I expect dramatic improvement in O line play this year.  If the QB play is better to match, the offense will be atleast 7 pts a game better.  

Couple that with much better special teams and the field position will help both offense and defense both.  This suggests wins instead of losses in several games.

Oh no doubt. Big reason inside zone was terrible imo.

Big reason why our whole offense was pretty much a mess and in all honesty probably was a big reason why we were so swing pass heavy. Also shows why our starter and backup QB got hurt

The O-line played MUCH better in the last five games. Should be pretty solid with everyone back. Jurgens should he considerably improved. Hopefully Benhart is ready at RT so Farniok can move inside to his more natural position.

I saw some improvement as the season progressed.  But I expect (call it wishful thinking if u must) the O line to be almost night & day different this fall.  

Of course all the lost practices wont help from a S&C stand point but surely some of them found ways to work out on their own.  

Without extra long fall camp (Frost says not much chance of it

per NCAA), I also expect more injuries and fatigue but opponents may be same boat.

I haven't heard if the OL and DL done any "practicing" during the shutdown but I do know that some of the team did do some 7v7 stuff and kept pretty active.

Sounds good except that I understood the NCAA said no team or group activities were allowed at all.  Sounds like a violation.  ?  Hope not.  Dont need that nightmare at this point.

The players done it on their own.  No coaches or any school officials were a part of it.  They didnt use any of the school's facilities either.

I hope they took it serious.  How many players actually stayed in Lincoln vs going home ? if u know. Guess we will know which players are serious about their sport and which ones arent based on conditioning etc.

What does that have to do with ANYTHING?

Because it's pretty hard to participate in 7v7 unless you were where the other 13 guys were.  I think that's everything in regards to the conversation.

 

No issue at all with people not staying in Lincoln but to participate, as mentioned above, it would be necessary.

Or there was a global pandemic going on and the players went home to be close to family because of the uncertain situation.  Logan Smothers went back to Alabama to finish up school.  Luke McCaffrey has been back in Colorado the past few months. Players haven’t been allowed on campus, so they may as well be home to where they can do as much on their own as possible.

 

The official team workouts (without coaches) and 7 on 7 playing don’t start until the summer, and the 7 on 7 may be limited due to COVID-19 limitations in group activities.

I remember reading a blurb on ESPN about CMC's workout regime back in Colorado and that he was working out with his family and thought, "Welp, that's a pretty good spot for Luke to be in."

I totally agree that Luke is in a great spot to work out with his family.  I hope players are doing as much as they can during this time, but it doesn't make them "bad teammates" for going home during the past few months.

I must have missed a few posts.  Who suggested we had a bunch of bad teammates.  ?   

You make that implication when you posts things like "I hope they took it serious.  How many players actually stayed in Lincoln vs going home ? if u know. Guess we will know which players are serious about their sport and which ones arent based on conditioning etc."
