O-Line U?

BC's O-line has almost always been incredible, producing several pro-leaguers and giving Boston College a nickname of "O-Line U". However, in my opinion, They have had a hard time the past few weeks, and along with play calling, are the reason why BC is no longer undefeated. We're still getting some recognition, though, as is shown on College Football, where columnist Richard Cirminiello ranked the top O-lines in Division I College Football this year, using a "top-secret formula for offensive lines, using a bunch of team stats, such as sacks allowed, yards per carry, and tackles for loss allowed". Here's what he has to say about BC:

Although the Eagles haven’t been running the ball with the authority of recent teams, led by hulking LT Gosder Cherilus, they’ve built a cocoon around QB Matt Ryan, who’s having an All-American type year.

Personally, I just hope that the O-line can keep it up and string together wins over our next three games, and mask their poor performances dating all the way back to the Notre Dame game (7 false starts!). Live up to your name, boys. Show the ACC why you're going to win it.
