Miles Dieffenbach is back, but there's still shuffling to be done along the offensive line.

Matthew O'Haren-USA TODAY Sports

James Franklin's gameplan the last two weeks has seemingly been to let Dieffenbach play as much as he can handle, easing the senior back into the lineup, but continuing to mix the other pieces around him. For the first time, Dieffenbach's listed among the starters, but that doesn't mean the line is settled.

For one, there's the continuing quandary at center: Angelo Mangiro's been a key piece, with his versatility, but you'd be hard-pressed to argue that he's been better than Wendy Laurent at the position. There's a big ol' OR between them, and it wouldn't be surprising to see both rotate through, perhaps at multiple positions.

Everything else seems pretty consistent. After last week's outburst, why would you change anything?
