    How does the physicality of practices and the Oklahoma drill compare with practices of coach Carroll? It would be great if our players start saying “practices are harder than the games” again,

    Is the mixing on OL mainly happening on 2nd team?

    Is it a rule that a coach must be on his nth athletic director and nth set of assistant coaches before he changes the culture of a program? Even if the Kardashian sisters were the AD and coordinators, couldn't Helton still have started practice with the Oklahoma Drill?

    Been missing the mailbag Erik, glad to have one back!

    When do the Fall freshmen usually get on campus and Summer PRPs usually start? Looking forward to this year’s new class! Gonna be a big team with all the returnees too. No reason to slack off on the contact now. Lots of bodies.

    Hurray for the mailbag! Now it’s time for the OL questions.

    1. Development: There aren’t a ton of ‘elite’ OL targets coming out of HS every year, but certain teams seem to do very well with lower ranked big men. Is our new S&C showing early success in the trenches?

    2. Recruiting: Any under the radar prospects at the OL position we should keep our eyes on?

    Erik, do you think Notre Dame tickets will be available this year?

    Any inside scoop on Jay Toia's development? He looks like an absolute beast in the making

    Pls ask.. What the heck is so out of control, so clueless, so ignorant of the surroundings, so blind, that the coaching staff can let a a homeless person participate with the team for several days and not even notice it.

    I might ask was that a factual story or was it mostly Scot Wolf being Scot Wolf and blowing something completely out of proportion.

    Any news on the new PAC12 commish? Any news on direction of the conference/what they are looking for in a new commish?

    Do you think this would be Clay's last year if things don't go well? Replacements?

    Is the talent still available on the west coast to rock a killer OL and RB combo? I think it's still there, we just need to corral it, the topic/question comes up because many posters on this board grumble about the west coast being soft/no longer a football factory. I feel like the crappy programs got even crappier or non-existent (teams with only enough players to play offense and defense using the same players) but that the top level quality is still the same. From a population perspective CA will always be packed, however Nevada/Utah/Arizona/Oregon/Texas populations are rapidly growing / is the talent pool growing right along with the population growth?

    My main concern in recruiting is our Offensive line. Who are we targeting right now? Do we have shots on Josh Conerly, Earnest Green or Devon Campbell?

    Are we done with our coaching staff?

    In my opinion the offensive play schemes are detrimental to attracting 4&5* offensive lineman, is it the belief of the football program administrators that this can be overcome by a different line coach brought in every year?

    I hope we don't have to show covax ID before asking questions.

    It has been reported that there were some under the center snaps in the recent practice. How many plays were run this way and how was it looking to you? Do you believe that we will actually break out an under-center short yardage package during the season, or is this just for show to get the fans off their back?

    Media isn’t allowed to report on formations, specific plays or strategy from practice, so I won’t be able to get into much of this. But I’ll include it and try to offer some thoughts.
