    Wouldn't even begin to know how to rate his performance. After watching the condensed Mick'd up replay on YouTube, he certainly seems to be a YUGE upgrade over Bleich, beyond that I don't know how close he is to Heggie. He seemed to only get beat 2 or 3 times, with no adverse play result. He moved well I thought, and seemed to identify key blocks when pulling. Certainly not an all-SEC performance, but I thought he looked good in his first start as a true freshman.

    Any chance we can move Garage to OT when Heggie comes back? I'd love to drop DeLance

      Pretty sure Gouraige was recruited as an OT.

      Bleich wasn't too bad on pass blocking. Was pretty pedestrian at run blocking however. Not sure at this point if White will become an upgrade over him. Hopefully he does by next season at least. "Garage" was abused at Tackle like a turnstile in the Spring game.

      I too am pleased by White's development. I think our OL is going to be pretty good next year.

        White is already an upgrade over Bleich. I'm not even sure why Bleich was playing. He was a 1st class matador. In fact, I think he left the team to pursue the career professionally in Mexico.

            I will wait until we see more than Vandy to make a bigger judgment on White. How many sacks do you think Bleich has given up this season?

                Couldn't tell you, but I've seen plenty of whiffs on blocks and he wasn't effective against TN-Martin or Towson. So I really don't think it's fair to say that it's just Vandy when Bleich played worse against inferior competition. As it's turned out, Bleich was a snowflake that couldn't take coaching. Doubt he could handle some hoodlum from UM talk about turning his momma out for weed money either.

                              Like beating a double team...shoulders vertical, get them and the head through and the lower half is a cinch.

                                  Bleich’s last name is the exact sound I made when I watched him play.

                                  Glad White could come in and play his butt off. He’s deserved it
