Football: Guarnero will “probably” start

Jeff Tedford said after practice this morning that it will be “probably Guarnero” that starts at center against USC. Guarnero practiced all week and is ready to go. He missed last week’s game against UCLA with a sprained ankle.

    I’ll be the first to say it, NUTS!

    I’LL second that.Guarnero has been getting manhandled for a year and a half now,and Tedford refuses to put the best five on the O-line.

    I’LL second that.Guarnero has been getting manhandled for a year and a half now,and Tedford refuses to put the best five on the O-line.This is an absolute injustice for Galas and the Bear football team.

  • gotwood

    To say that we know more about who the best 5 are on the offensive line is absolutely ridiculous. Tedford and the offensive line coach know much more than us and will play the best possible combination. What we say and think is speculation, nothing more.

    Are you kidding. Gallas played great and the offensicve line was noticeably better last week.

    Not to burst your bubble but..UCLA’s O-line wasn’t great and they’ve had problems for quite a while. One reason why the program has advanced as fast as Nueheisel would like.

    Regardless, the Bear O=line has improved and Galas brings another tough lineman into the rotation. Tedford said both will play and that’s a luxury really. It keeps everyone fresher.

    Go Bears!

    if the strategy is to rotate them throughout the game to keep them fresh, like he seems to be doing in a lot of other positions where we have depth, i’m all for it. and i will argue that we as fans DO see things the coach misses, because we can focus on just those things. we don’t spend all day worrying about recruiting and alumni and classwork and game planning, etc.

    Galas had no problem playing the whole game (or a huge portion of it at least). There’s no reason to bring an inferior player in just for the hell of it. This has been Marshall’s problem from the word go — constantly jacking around with combinations and experimenting with players at different positions. I’m really surprised JT allows this to go on given how “involved” he’s been with the rest of the offense all along.

    The offensive line was VERY successful last week regardless of the reason. If it aint broke – don’t fix it.
