How has the offensive line performed this spring?

The line has performed well. This the most experienced group Tommy Bowden has ever had. Barry Richardson and Marion Dukes have nailed down the tackle spots, and Cory Lambert could be the back-up at both tackle spots. Roman Fry, Dustin Fry, and Nathan Bennett really work well together on the interior. Thomas Austin has performed well, and he will earn a spot on the two-deep. Barry Humphries was making a move on the number two spot at center, but his status will be re-evaluated after spring break.

Are we in trouble this weekend against Virginia?

The Tigers will need to be near perfect in the field. The Tigers have a very high fielding percentage, but UVA will pounce on any mistakes you make. Their bats are improved this year, but they are still a small ball team. Adrian Casanova has not been very successful throwing runners out on steals. UVA will test Casanova this weekend. The Tigers struggled last year against the soft throwing lefties. UVA's Sean Doolittle will put the Tigers to the test today, if the Tigers can take two of three this weekend, it will be a very positive sign for ACC play.

Can the basketball team go to Freedom Hall and win on Monday?

Well, Louisville has to win against Delaware State on Friday. Delaware St has a unique style of play that could present problems for Louisville. Delaware St. played Duke very tough in the NCAA tournament last year. If Delaware St. pulls the upset, Clemson could host on Monday. Louisville is a talented team, but they are used to being an NCAA tournament, and their motivation could be in question in the NIT.
