Nebraska Cornhuskers: Tyler Moore Leaves Huge Hole On Outside Of Line

The Nebraska Cornhuskers have a storied history with many players becoming All-Americans. The Cornhuskers have boasted many professional athletes at most positions. One position the Huskers have done well is offensive line. In their storied career, however, they had never had a true freshmen start at the tackle position.

That was, until Tyler Moore came along. Unfortunately for Husker fans, Moore has decided to “temporarily” leave the team for “personal reasons.” Moore’s departure leaves the offensive line precariously thin, with just three tackles on the roster.

Those three – Jeremiah Sirles, Andrew Rodriguez, and Brent Qvale – will see plenty of action.

Where do the Huskers go from here?

The Huskers do have some guards on the roster who could move over, though the transition would be long and hard. For whoever gets the duty to move, they will have plenty of competition to go against. Cameron Meredith and Eric Martin, along with Jason Ankrah and others, will help them grow quickly.

Clearly the other option for the Huskers is to recruit heavy and possibly find a junior college transfer that could come in.

What Husker fans can hope for for the season is that the offensive line is not decimated by injuries. Rodriguez has potential to become a great offensive tackle, but has yet to show he has the work ethic.

Tyler Moore is not expected back in Lincoln, but stranger things have happened. Rumors are flying about that Moore could transfer to South Florida, though transfer papers have yet to be signed.
