I'm hoping it was more of a mutual decision. For it to last this long (or, I guess, short), he must have looked like absolute **** on the D-line. Hopefully both parties understood it and made the right decision together.
Maybe because Simon is now on campus? Come on, anyone in the know?
Haven't talked to my source yet, but I wouldn't hold your breath. Like I said in another thread, the staff would absolutely be shocked if he made it to campus, and if it does happen, it'll happen sometime next week.
The way Bleil talked he just prefers to play Oline. Bleil also said he will likely eventually move to center because he is mobile and very intelligent (engineering major).
I'm fine with it because I want the guy to play a position where he can motivate himself as much as possible. Oline and Dline are two very different animals.
I am fine with it as well. It's kind of like the NFL Draft. I prefer a team to take the best available player rather than draft for need. Similarly, I want Oni in the position where he can be best suited to perform and help us win, rather than patching holes - which seems to clearly be OL.
It looks like Jon Caspers is getting a look at D-Tackle per the Practice 14 videos.
