Hypothetically speaking - Husker game and Bama



After watching parts of the College Football Awards show last night and a handful of references made to players that used to play both sides of the ball......

I'm just curious what everybody else thinks about whether Texas should/could have used our defensive linemen (esp. Kindle and Houston) on offense against the Huskers. And should/could we use them against Bama (T. Cody).

Now let me say I know it won't happen - Mack and GD won't use these guys on offense. This is more about what do YOU think.

I'm not saying they should have played the entire 60 minutes (off & def), but maybe a couple downs here and there at least for some certain packages. And I'm not criticizing the offensive linemen (although they do need some improvement), but I can't help but think "maybe, just maybe Kindle and Houston could have held Suh in check - at least some of the time - to help give McCoy more time for specific plays."

Do you think it could work (Bama) or could have worked (NU)?? I know there is also some risk of injury to those guys for playing so much, but here's a real kicker - against NU, maybe Kindle and Houston only needed to play on offense. There certainly wasn't much to fear from the Husker offense - the rest of the guys would have performed just fine.
