With the exception of possibly Freddie Maggard, I don’t think anyone knows more about football, specifically the offensive line, than Cole Cubelic. After having a sideline view of Kentucky vs. South Carolina last weekend, the SEC Network analyst named Bunchy Stallings one of his top three SEC offensive linemen of the week:
My top 3 individual @SEC OL performances of week 5:
1) Lamont Gaillard @FootballUGA
2) Ross Pierschbacher @AlabamaFTBL
3) Bunchy Stallings @UKFootball

Blocks like this to help AJ Rose score are why:
Bunchy has already been named SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week twice this season; this week, the award went to his teammate George Asafo-Adjei, a testament to the offensive line’s strength even after losing Landon Young in fall camp.
Also, in case you missed this awesome clip from Saturday, Bunchy stepped in and shoved South Carolina’s Steven Montac off Benny Snell after Montac tried to pin Snell to the ground:

Bunchy is a hero.
