    If the O-Line stays healthy and continues to perform, look out. May well be the best unit in the country, and we'll need them against TCU and a BCS Bowl opponent.

    Stop already with the holier-than-thou talk. Let's be honest now. Of course Zoobs troll Ute articles, but this week they've been too busy analyzing how Bronco saved their season with a T shirt.

    Congratulations Caleb and thanks DNEWS for the pub for an O-lineman. O-line is a very difficult position to play. Knowing not only how to block, but who to block is not easy. The footwork and hand positioning are not natural and can only be learned with a lot of hard work. If I'm not mistaken, O linemen have consistently graded highest on the NFL's Wunderlich test. They're not just big, but smart too.

    No question that the Utes' success comes in no small part from the O-line. As far as not being tested, Pitt came into RES with two dominating defensive ends/all-american candidates and despite getting a few "hurries" ended up with a goose-egg for sacks.

    Thanks for the hard work Caleb.

    Go Utes!

    Looks like we'll have another high O-line draft pick from Utah! Nice job Caleb!

    Most zoob fans don't troll Utah articles. We have our team to comment about. Utah does have a wonderful O-line, which allows their "skill" athletes to shine even brighter. Utah is scary good this year, but they haven't been tested yet. I would really love to see the U trash TCU this year. They owe them one.

    In that second quarter Utah's O-Line just kicked the trash out of the ISU defense up and down the field. No pressure on the QB and huge holes in the running game. It looked like they were going up against a DII defense. Physically dominating.

    This Utah team is scary good.

    He came in the UCLA game as a freshman and dominated their D-line. What a great career.

    Long for the Mtn? Ugh! I was embarrassed when the announcer tried to say his name. He won't ever get it wrong again, I bet.

    Nice article. Another example of a class act Ute with huge talent. Keep up the great work!

    Go Utes! The future is bright!

    Mike, thanks for a great column on a great player. Especially nice to read after the announcer on whatever low-def FCS channel that carried the game here in AZ (and went black for the entire second half)tried to pronounce "Schlauderaff" and totally butchered it. Actually made me long for The Mtn.

    Great job Caleb! Thanks for putting in the work and getting it done each week.

    Keep it up Utes, one game at a time!

    Games are won and lost in the trenches. With players like Caleb manning the front, we're gonna win lots and lots of games.

    Any true football fan knows that it doesn't matter how good of skill-position players a team has without a good offensive line. I think this O-line truly may be the best in school history – and that is saying something with the recent successes the Utes have had. As the tougher part of the season approaches, look for how much time Wynn has to throw the football and the holes Asiata and Wide have to run through. I think even I (old, slow) could have gained yards last week through some of those gaping craters they opened up. If the O-line reaches continues to play to its full potential, this team could be something special. Great story Sorny, and congrats to being recognized Caleb.

    I always find it amusing when they talk about the "skill players" Obviously Caleb is highly skilled at what he does or as he put it. "We'd be hearing his number called" Great Job!!! Keep working those skills!! Go Utes!!!!

    While it is commonplace for offensive lineman to go unnoticed, having a good line is key to success. Thank you Caleb for doing an outstanding job.
