It will be exciting to see them open some big holes for a deep bench of quality running backs. Jake Heaps should have a good safety valve with this combination of corn silo-sized blockers and substantial ground game attack rotations.

I can only imagine how the trolls from the North are really feeling about their O line when they read this article. Remember, thou shalt not envy.

I remember a few years ago when the BYU o-linemen were dropping left and right. Bronco had to scale back practices and scrimmages. Depth. Can't live without it.

Andrew Rich left big shoes to fill at safety. It sounds like Sorensen is the right man for the job. Sorensen got the first pick for Heaps this year. I'm also excited about receiver Dallin Cutler. I have heard he has completed some amazing plays in this first week of practice. He sounds very athletic. Just 3 weeks till game time! It can't get here soon enough.

Best o-line in the country with atleast 3 NFL first round picks.

Will there be partying in the streets of Provo after the Y beats Ole Miss? Similar to after the Oklahoma game?

I would still like to hear more about our DLine...Ole Miss really doesn't have much of a QB right now and I expect a running game would be the call they make early and often. From what it appears, Utah and Ole Miss might be similar in the QB arena but I would give Utah the edge on RB over Ole Miss. Not yet sure about Texas.

UU32,

No, but there will be after week 3, after BYU beats Ole Miss, Texas, and your "mighty" Utes.

Old Miss has a very good O-line (Phil Steel rates them at #2 in the nation). They are huge: 6-8,6-9; and 7 of them have started games. They also have quality (SEC) running backs with lots of carries. Old Miss will have a much better running game than Utah. Texas also has a lot more running back talent than Utah. I believe that Bronco will shut down all three!

Will the Utes have another parade if they get second place in the Pac 10.2?

Ole Miss' line IS huge and they WILL run. We'll have to cowboy up to stop them. I'll be there with 9 other so cal guys. Hope we don't get humiliated by not being able to stop the run.

Good news is that we have a great stable of backers. And Bronco will be trying to confuse them. But bad things happen on opening day, even to good teams. I have not heard much about Ole Miss' defense, though. I suspect we'll be able to move the ball and score.

Very large and experienced olines usually result in good seasons. This should be a very good season.
