Palcic on the young hogs

Caught up with offensive line coach Bob Palcic real quick, and here’s what he had to say…

On Xavier Su’a-Filo and Stanley Hasiak:
“I think they’re real good, young kids, but let’s remember they’re just incoming freshmen,” Palcic said. “It’s extremely difficult at any level, whether you come in as a rookie in the pros or go from high school to college, it takes time and patience. But I think they have the qualities and abilities that will make them really good players here at one time.”

On the transition from high school to college and the odds of freshmen linemen getting playing time:
“The offensive line and the quarterback are the two toughest places to make the transition in,” Palcic said. “That’s not going to change. If they’re good enough, that’s fine with me. I’ve started freshmen before, and I’m not afraid to do it again.”

    Thanks for following up with a more direct second question after getting a vague first response. Excellent work!

    If Palcic has started freshman in the past, I feel it is almost a guarantee he will start some of our stud newcomers considering how pathetic our o-line was last year.

    Go Bruins!!!

    If Palcic has started freshman in the past…you mean like Jeff Baca? Yeah he started eight games last season as a true freshman.

    You’re right, Baca was a true frosh last year.

  • Gold is More Valuable than Doh(n)

    Nice work focusing on the Big Uglies for a change.

    How does Randall Carroll look at practice so far?

    Gold is more valuable than Doh(n). Nothing against Jill or Dohn, but I am liking your blog posts better. Good luck.

    the fact that these guys are even being discussed is exciting. last year we had nothing to get excited about other than the changes that might come down the road. this year we may actually see some of those changes taking place.
