Shurburtt just collided headon with the biggest problem UT has had the last two years in the offensive line, that being that true freshmen and true sophomores had to play. To wit:
"In general, prospects don't have a good sense of their ability," Shurburtt said. "They're used to being told how great they are and are used to playing at the high school level so they naturally assume things are going to be the same at college. It's just not like that.
"Guys look at the depth chart and say 'I'm not going to get off the bench in two years.' In all reality, no matter where they go, they're not going to get off the bench for two years."
