I here you tmcats. Normally this level of player starts and gets the vast majority of snaps. The rotation would normally occur with other less dominant players. But this may be Kleiman's way. Just like with running back lots of kids get a lot of reps. Keeps more guys active and involved. Also more fresh in the 4th quarter. Builds team unity with so many a true part of things rather than just riding the pine. Fewer plays also reduces the chance of injury, and if someone is injured the next guy is a known commodity. Obviously this didn't prevent Revas from getting noticed and receiving honors. I think this may also be good for recruiting where the young guys know they will get PT if ready.

i still find it fascinating that a non-starter, however, it be rationalized, a rotation guy is b12 first-team and then picked as the country's best interior lineman the following year. i've never seen any set of circumstances quite like it. it's the circumstances that are unique not the fact he should or shouldn't have gotten the starting nod.
I agree with you TM. I had heard it several times throughout the year by several podcasts folks talking about how well he graded out, yet he wasn't starting. It really is strange that the top interior OLman in the country and a B12 first teamer, yet wasn't a starter. Fascinating

Maybe he graded out much better individually , but Curl had better chemistry and teamwork with his senior team mates

I've had it happen several times. In my case it was because the computer was slow and I posted again thinking it didn't work the first time, sometimes it doesn't. According to some it is because I am a computer illiterate baby boomer.

I’m not sure what happened I hit post one time and it posted three times. Seems I’ve always been an overachiever.😁

I'm not that concerned with the OL honestly, there's some real talent in that positional group.
