KSL pretty much keeps a log of everything Wilson does all day. They probably know how many times he takes a dump every day. They then report it to their Cougar masses who eat it up.

Maybe I am in the minority here, but I am just not that worried about OL depth. Realistically, you need an 8-man rotation to feel good about your OL.
