UofL FOOTBALL | Playing on the offensive line is tougher than ever

09/23/2015 07:37 PM

The focal point of a football team’s offense tends to be the quarterback, but the QB can’t do much if there are no blockers to protect him. The Louisville offensive line has been a riddle since before the Cards even took the field against Auburn back on September 5, and in the 18 days since, the Cardinal front line has continued to falter.

Louisville offensive coordinator Garrick McGee understands the importance of the O-line, and is vocal about the open competition in practices where the coaches determine who has earned the starting role. McGee also understands that with the evolution of football, there has never been a more difficult time to be an offensive lineman, and he is instilling the need for drastic improvement.

McGee talked a lot more about the O-line and the coordinated effort it takes to be successful on Saturdays. He also talks about his quarterbacks and different players that have really impressed him to start the season.
