The question is -- will Morse start at guard or center? If the coaches believe freshman guard Orlando Franklin is one of the five best players along the line, Morse will likely start at center. If Franklin doesn't win the job, which means Morse will likely be one of the two starting guards along with Andrew Bain, then A.J. Trump or John Rochford will likely win the job at center. Shannon is just glad they have those options.
"The more we can get guys on the field that are rested, the better we'll be on offense," Shannon said. "Just like we've done for years on defense, we want to rotate guys."
Regardless of who wins the job at center, we'll likely see some type of regular rotation along the line.
"If we're able to rotate guys where they're playing 35-40 snaps a game instead of 80 snaps, we'll be fresh and can down break teams," he said. "If you're able to have depth along the offensive line, you'll take it and run with it. Most teams in the country want that. That's what we're trying to do."
Shannon said after Thursday's practice that he'll announce the starters for the opener and the depth chart next Tuesday. Stay tuned to CanesTime.com for more coverage.
