Only one of the position battles along the offensive line was solved in fall camp, and that one has a backup whom coaches want to get some playing time.
Here is my story on the state of the offensive line and how the game on Friday could help the position battles get sorted out.
Also, here is a quote from Dan Roushar from Wednesday about the line. (Quote from msuspartans.com). Expect several guys to play early in the season, but the goal would be to have a starting five determined possibly by Big Ten play, as Kirk Cousins suggested in my story.
"In an ideal setting, you have five guys who have played an awful lot together; there is a lot of cohesion there, a lot of experience to draw on. We are not in that setting right now. So I think there will be some guys coming in and out, much like we did a year ago to start the season."
