You have no favorite boards.
It seems to me that you don't just need a huge guy in the middle, and two fairly large ones on either side, but you need them to be willing to do the dirty work with very little of the glory so that ILBs can step up and fill the gaps/make the tackle. This year the UGA DL seemed to prefer getting into the backfield rather than always filing the spaces. When a play was made in the backfield, it was certainly spectacular, but if it wasn't, then the lack of people at the point of attack screwed the run D. Considering that OL holding has become an endangered species in the SEC, it is going to be harder to really get to the QB or the RB in good time. BY the way, I would love to know the difference in holding calls in the SEC this year versus previous years. Can Gentry ask the league ref office for the numbers?
