What he accomplished in 2012: Unfortunately there really aren’t any stats to show how John Fullington did, being that he’s an offensive lineman. But he really did struggle at times and a highlight of his struggles seemed to be when Marquess Wilson would make an amazing catch, he would be called for holding to bring it back.
In the weeks leading up to the start of the season many people claimed that Fullington was our best offensive linemen. It’s safe to say that nobody really was good and J.F. didn’t necessarily stand out as “the best”. Fullington struggled quite a lot but so did everyone else on the offensive line. For someone who was supposed to be our best lineman, he didn’t have as big of an impact as some of us originally thought he would.
What I expect in 2013: This is an interesting case because I honestly, actually am not quite sure. The offensive line is going to look vastly different due some of the newcomers who may challenge the returners on the line. But a huge factor in this is that the offensive line needs to be revamped and improved because without them improving we aren’t going bowling anytime soon, which is something Mike Leach won’t put up with at all.
