Dawgs' OL Tries to Get It Together for Vols
Clint Boling

Posted Oct 5, 2008

ATHENS – Clint Boling isn’t chalking it up as the unit’s best performance, but looking back, he doesn’t think Georgia’s offensive line played too bad in the Bulldogs’ loss to Alabama.

The line wasn’t able to open many running lanes early, but in the second half, the unit played well in the Bulldogs’ comeback attempt – despite Georgia lining up in obvious passing plays nearly every down.

“They knew what we were going to do,” Boling said. “They were twisting, they were bringing blitzes, and they were rushing three. I thought we did a decent job picking it up, and we did get some points in the second half.”

The experience the line gained against Alabama’s physical front could be a big help the rest of the season, quarterback Matthew Stafford said.

“That’s a big front they saw, and they saw a bunch of different blitzes,” Stafford said. “It was a good experience for them. I think every game is good because they’re gelling and getting to work together, and that’s what they need.”

Whether the lineup remains unchanged from the Alabama game remains to be seen. Backup left tackle Kiante Tripp has already been moved to tight end, and Boling said other changes could be in store.

“Right now it might stay the same, but any time Coach (Stacy) Searels might move somebody,” Boling said. “But I don’t think anything like that is going to happen right now.”
