    Hope you two can watch OL vs DL battles in spring to give us the scoop. Old days used to stand behind Coach O vs Coach Davis urge their guys on

    We're going to be able to be at Tuesday/Saturday practices watching from the swim stadium. Not sure what the sight lines will be, but hopefully that gets us closer to the offensive linemen, which were always pretty much impossible to see. But it'll be a long ways away from the 9 on 7 run drills on Brian Kennedy though.

    Thats what binoculars are for. I recall going to a water pool game and trying to peak over the wall at a practice during the closed era. Didn't get more than a few seconds before someone came over and shoo'd me away.

    You will see OL corner work well. Use to watch from DF patio roof with OL parents. To see OLvsDL on BK walk over horseshoe walk to baseball field , can see over fence with players parents again

    Ford at LT and Collier replacing McKenzie at RT?

    Really curious to see how & where Jason Rodriguez fits in this year.

    If McGuire pans out, O-line just might surprise to the upside.

    If Vorhies can still earn a starting spot we will suffer. He usually grades out the lowest, despite the experience and earning pt as a true frosh.

    Vorhees was second-team Pac-12 left guard from Pro Football Focus, which grades every play and uses advanced statistics. I'm not saying they are the one true voice of tape breakdown or anything like that, but he's definitely grading out well in some eyes. PFF went four teams deep. Alijah Vera-Tucker was first-team left tackle, and Vorhees was the only other USC lineman to make any of the other teams, first through third plus honorable mention.
