I think Wisconsin overperforms relative to their recruiting, and it appears Texas is on the other side of that metric.

I have seen some freshmen OLs do pretty well, better than expected, and some 5 stars struggle for a couple years.  I THINK some of the latter are not in shape, for one thing, or may not be smart enough to get up to speed.

when teams have a good OL often they remain invisible to the normal fan

things get done folks are blocked etc and it gets kinda just taken for granted

but man when a team that has a poor OL it stands out like a sore thumb

cant rush cant pass it just sucks

A thing I look for is a team that just road grades lesser opponents.  They line up in the first quarter and just drive down the field not messing around.  It might not be apparent that the OL is doing the work, but to me, it's a sign the team has a very good OL.  The same of course will struggle a lot more with an opponent with a good front seven, but at minimum, they need to just put it to lesser teams.
