So Weber has never liked the linemen being called hogs, and he never liked that they were so big, yet he did absolutely nothing about it for years?

If lighter mean better line play that would be great. Because the offensive line play for the last several years has not been stellar.

The bigger they are, the better they are. They are too small right now.

The last time BYU had a really good team - top 5 ranking and Cotton Bowl victory - the offensive line was called 'the flat bellies.'

Shortly thereafter, the 'hogs' arrived. I do not know who brought them or why, but it was a serious move in the wrong direction. Every year since Bronco has been head coach, he has done something intended to get the program to a higher level. This latest move is definitely in the right direction.

When the 49ers had a dynasty their O-line was light, strong and agile. They knew how to pass block and could get outside fast on a sweep. I've wondered why the philosophy changed.

Like DC, I wondered--Weber never liked the hog approach, but he did nothing until Mendenhall and Doman told him to? If Harmon's writing is accurate (always a question), it shows a decided lack of leadership.

I feel bad for Matt Reynolds. I think he could have benefitted from this and had a better senior year had it been in place earlier.
