When is CSU gonna do a "Nebraska" OL upgrade???

Nebraska replaced 4 of their 5 starters (only the starting OCenter remained) 2 weeks ago before the NorthWestern game... all of them were young unproven RS Fr, Fr, or Soph's (including Nouili from CSU)... and it has proven to unlock their stale, moribund Offense which wiped out NW & almost clocked Mich.

I believe that most of what We've seen from our Upperclassmen Xfers (over '20 & '21 games) has been quite disappointing re quickness, power, mobility & even brain-farts. And this new move of Ciafonni from DT to OG... what the hell is this BS, and why was it not done in Spring Ball or 2-Days??? Our OL Staff is failing us vs Leading us.

The new combo of starters on the Left side of Williams OT, Wesley OG (made possible only by Picouzzi's injury) was a smashing success vs SJSU !!!! I've called for both Williams & Chez Jackson to start since Vandy.

Did we notice how TC was able to soar when his OL provided a consistently clean pocket??? More of that could have been provided vs. Iowa & Vandy, if this change had been made before Picouzzi's injury.... Now that is infuriating to me !!!

I believe there's more capable replacements that SA stubbornly refuses to play-start. Where's Octavius Phillips? He's better than Korutz or E Johnson... by a mile.

SA has signed 10 new OL kids since arriving... but none have started or even played. Where are these youngsters ???

Only 4 of Bobo's guys remain on the OL roster (and yet 3 of them are starters or get play time?).

What the HELL is going on here w/ our OL... and SA saying "they need to learn how to be D1a linemen! " That's he & Louie's job to recruit/develop/grow his recruits into that capability... that's his main JOB & Expertise !!!!!!! He should not have to fall back on Bobo's guys to bail out his struggling OL (and herein lies his potentially desperate need to cover up).

And FYI, his BC Xfers are lacking the Physical Tools to be able to become good D1a starting OLmen... they're too overweight, slow, marshmellows & weak to do what SA is consistently asking them to do.

PLEASE SA.... stop being STUBBORN... stop playing POLITICS.... do a "Nebraska" to our OL (it's been needed all along), allow Your Offense to bloom & boom even further !!!!!!!!!!!
