Of Harvey Dahl And Head-Scratching Roster Moves

With a new coaching staff in place, it was inevitable that some players were going to get an enormous boost in their stock that didn't exist with Bobby Petrino. Who these players are turning out to be is the surprising part. In the style of  Brent Grimes, I give you Harvey Dahl, who could well be our starting right guard next year.

Just who is this Harvey Dahl, you say? He's a frequent practice squad player who apparently enjoys getting in fights with teammates and generally plays like he's going to devour an infant. Between Tyson Calbo and Dahl, I'm starting to get the feeling that our coaching staff wants guys who are as tough as possible. That would leave Kynan Forney sitting on the sidelines, which given his struggles last season wouldn't exactly be the end of the world.

It's worth asking, though, if Dahl or any of these other surprising upstarts will stick around. Unlike Clabo, Dahl doesn't have any in-season experience to endear him to the coaching staff. More bluntly, Dahl is 26 year-old offensive lineman with a truly terrible haircut and a mysterious past. While Grimes has freakish athleticism in his court, Dahl has what the coaches are calling a nasty streak and some fair-to-middling competition among the ranks. Dahl could seize the job, but at this early point I'm much more inclined to see him as a valuable backup where we really could use some depth.

Thoughts on Dahl?
