Bentley vs UNC
LINK

He didn't play well, but he was running for his life most of the time. The Oline play was hard to watch. Stanley should've stayed at center & played Rhodes at guard. Manos is just to small still.

I agree, he was under pressure all day. Too much pressure.

re: Bentley vs UNC
Hank Manos will eventually be one hell of a lineman.... the best ones were at one point high school/greco Roman style wrestlers. He understands leverage, but you’re correct, he’s still too small. As a wrestler, it takes your body time to recover from the constant weight cutting, especially if you’re trying to put muscle back on. I can remember going from football at 220, to wrestling at 195, and having to bulk back up to 220 for football season. Which is why I gave up cutting weight as a senior and just wrestled 220. At heavyweight (285lb) you have a wide range of guys of all sizes, because if you are 220.1, you have to wrestle at 285 because you’re over 220. He would have to starve himself down to 275-280 all season which eats at your lean muscle mass and drains your water weight. The redshirt year helped him get to what, 290?

Edit: Gage Cervenka, RG at Clemson, was a dominant HS wrestler in my age range, he’s two years behind me, at 285. Kid had offers to go out to Iowa and wrestle in college, went 199-1 throughout HS. (I had to actually bump up and wrestle him my senior year and that was the only time I had ever been manhandled like that throughout HS) He would starve his body down to about 275-280 before matches and it took him about 2-2.5 years to regulate his weight again and build healthy weight to hold at 300-310 for football. Hank was a hell of a wrestler for Chapin as well.

Here is what I don't understand if you, as a fan with knowledge, know this why did our coaches put him in a position for failure or is our dl not adequate enough to show his short comings?

I don't know about the 1st part, but the 2nd part is they don't "hit" in football practice like they used to.

And by "they" I mean pretty much everyone in CFB.

Maybe late in the game. Looked to hold the ball too long most of the day

re: Bentley vs UNC
I think they were trying to move Stanley back to guard where he’s most natural at. Hank manos is talented, for sure, but at 290ish he has no shot unless he can learn to use leverage. Against teams with taller inside guys he has a chance. I don’t think it’s a lack of talent on our D-Line, him, as a wrestler and as a smaller, shorter, offensive lineman, would have an advantage on Kinlaw because lowest man wins in leverage.
