    Word on the internet is that Bullard will be starting at center, and Stone is switching to guard. TIFWIW, SMB.

    My question if this is true is, why now and not last week or the week before?

    I disagree Kpt, figuring that out before SCAR would be good.

    I was exaggerating a bit, but we've already blown two potential big wins in large part because of horrible snaps.

    I do think it cost us BIG in the Florida game.

    And it directly sabotaged at least 3 drives that I remember.

    Remove 12 more plays drawn up for Hunter and that's a really bleak offensive game.

    Exactly and also Stone really struggled with a tackle over the center which is what Bama will be bringing. This game is not winnable so might as well see if Bullard can handle it and get him ready for what is now a seemingly competitive South Carolina game. If we can jump South Carolina then a possible 7 win season is back on the table which would be amazing given the injury issues we've dealt with.

    Stone is still young and Im sure they hoped he would work through it. Sounds like they have run out of patience with him. It happens, move over to guard James and smash some people. Alex, 4' high is a plenty.

    On a positive note, at least we have pieces to move around and play with both on the field and on the bench. We didn't have that the last two years at ALL.

    When I glanced at the thread title, I thought it said 'Offensve line humor', indeed it could be.

    I doubt any of us will be laughing.

    I think our OL will hold it own against Bama's front 4, don't take that as we will throw them around or blow them off the ball, but if we can match the effort against LSU we will be ok. Where we will get in trouble is their LBs and secondary. JMO

    Da'Rick is going to get beat on all game long. Arnett could have a big game settling in to where the blitz comes from

    stone switched from left handed snap to right handed based on what I watched during the game last week. Somone who is more famliar with the position of center and or QB would have to explain that was needed\or what difference it makes to the QB. that being said he did made some horrendous snaps. Too high, worm burners, I do agree it cost us HUGE in the gaytor game. We get those back and I say we have a huge change of winning.
