VIDEO: Offensive Line Battles Take Center Stage This Spring
NT Must Rebuild The Offensive Line, Losing Four Starters From Last Season
Coming into the spring, offensive line coach Mike Simmonds knew that the familiar faces of Antonio Johnson, Cyril Lemon and Mason Y'Barbo wouldn't be there anymore. That trio combined to start 140 games in four seasons at North Texas. So perhaps the biggest question mark facing North Texas this season is how to rebuild an offensive line that returns just one starter, center Kaydon Kirby.
Coach Simmonds has taken an old approach to things this spring, going back to basics as he tries to find the best five players who will anchor the offensive line.
