Tujague on the overall progress of the offensive line:
"It has been good. I have been happy. I am not satisfied, but I have definitely been pleased with the progress that we have been making as a position group. Again, huge emphasis we have been making on protecting the quarterback at all costs. That's something we have been working very hard at.
And still being as effective as we need to be in our run game. So it is a good balance — guys are making huge strides.
The depth chart is changing every day, and are you kidding me? That's the greatest thing in the world, to have competition. Guys that might have been two year starters, not even going to make the [air] plane to go to UConn.
That's unfortunate for them, but it is exciting for me as the offensive line coach, because there is good competition."
Tujague on how many offensive linemen will travel to UConn:
"Ten is the plan. We will see what the needs are and stuff like that going into it. But 10 is definitely the plan — guys that can do more. The more you can do, the more you can do, and the more value you have if you can be a guard and a tackle, or a guard and a center, or all five, obviously your stock is going to go up."
Tujague on freshman Tejan Koroma being out there with the ones and whether he's got chance to play:
