Mo's staff was in a bad position with OL......

They had to try and get some more mature JUCO's to bolster the roster and they didn't pan out that well. I hope this staff does as KingMack has mentioned and recruits in HS OL and build them into what we need unless there is a real stud JUCO that wants to come to ECU. That way these kids play together for years which is another key component to building a quality OL. It is tough as heck to just bring in guys that have never played together and build instant continuity on the OL. It doesn't even happen in the pros. As good as they are they still need several games together to build trust with each other and know what to expect from the guy next to them.

Just imagine where we would be had the previous staff recruited well for OL. Spellacy, Winstead and several others would not have had to play so much already and we would have bolstered the numbers up to a nice group. I just hope people are patient with this staff and give them some time to get stronger on the LOS. I can just see some posts already early next season when we have some blocking issues. Shankweiler will be a bad OL coach, etc.
