Completely ripped off from MGoBrian.

He explains his terms here http://mgoblog.blogspot.com/2006/10/hennechart-legend.html

Three inaccurate passes, all in a row at the end of the first half.  The first one is wide of Corey Brown who is standing 8 yards down field on the outside, I'm not sure on this one if Miller threw the ball where he wanted to and was expecting Brown to cut outside or if Miller just didn't get the ball where he wanted to.  On a 2nd and 8 following a pass interference and a 2 yard bootleg, Miller completely airmailed Brown, and followed that up by overthrowing a well covered Fragel on 3rd and 8.

The bad read is the interception on a 3rd and 18 I formation play action pass, Miller throws into double coverage.  I'm not 100% certain he had a better option as 3 receivers are around the line of scrimmage to his left and I can't see the tight end to the right.  The interception ends up better than any punt Ohio State could hope for as IU goes out of bounds at the one.

One drop on the day on his final attempt as Miller hangs in the pocket on 3rd and 16 against a 6 man rush and delivers a good ball to Brown.

In my opinion the game really wasn't as bad as this makes it look.  There were 2 pass interference calls on balls that could have gone for big gains as the defenders were beaten and had no other option.  And there was the 3rd and 11 at the beginning of the second quarter where Miller throws a pretty good ball and bizarrely 19 yards down field the IU defender is allowed to push Brown out of bounds while the ball is in the air.  On the other hand 2 of the 5 completions were for negative yards, so the passing game really was a very small mixed bag in this game.  One more thing, excellent job by all on the 26 yard 3rd and 19 completion against an 8 man IU pass rush.

Runs

att 5 2 6 3 1

td 2 0 0 0 0
fumbles 0 0 1 0 0

Even without the 2 draws for 101 yards and 2 td's, Miller had 41 yards on 5 carries.  Miller and the offense have to get better at reading blitzes, IU brought more than 4 on 13 of the 25 plays I tracked.  3 of the 6 sacks were Miller leaving the pocket, but that still leaves 3 plays with unblocked blitzers getting to the quarterback.

Receivers

  comp targets yards td drops yac
Fields 1 2 26 0 0 2
Boren 1 1 25 0 0 17
Fragel 0 1 0 0 0 0
Brown 2 6 7 0 1 3
Herron 1 1 -3 0 0 0

No targets for Stoneburner, nice catch and run by Boren.

Stoneburner dropped a first down on a 3rd and 12 and Brown had the drop on the first pass of the night.

This next table is similar to what I think mgobrian is doing with his receiving chart but I am unable to find a link to his explanations so mine will have to do.  The first digit in the grade is from the receiver’s point of view, 4 easy to 1 impossible.  The second digit indicates the presence of the defender (1 there, 0 not there) at the time the ball hits the receiver’s hands.  When I say there, I mean close contact.


Therefore:
11  Bad pass, tight coverage.
10  Bad pass, no defender to stop it
21  Really tough ball to catch and in tight coverage.  A catch on this means the receiver is saving his qb.
20  Really tough ball to catch, no coverage.
31  Ball outside the strike zone, tight coverage

30  Ball outside the strike zone, no coverage

41  Ball on the money, tight coverage
40  Ball on the money, no coverage
