Completely ripped off from MGoBrian.

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

  dead on catchable inaccurate bad read throw away batted pressure
attempts 0 5 2 1 0 0 0
completions 0 5 0 0 0 0 0
yards 0 95 0 0 0 0 0
td 0 1 0 0 0 0 0
int 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

2 inaccurate passes, the first on a 3rd and 7 in the first quarter is more of a miscommunication than an inaccurate, Stoneburner is running a hook, Miller expects it inside, Stoneburner makes it outside.  The second is early in the third quarter on 2nd and 9 Miller rolls left and overthrows an open Fields near the end zone.  The bad read really deserved to be a pick as Miller broke out of the pocket then floated a ball into double coverage.   It was nice to  write one of these up again where the inaccurate and the bad reads were the exception rather than the rule.

Runs

  Designed Scramble Sack Knee Sneak
attempts 6 4 0 0 0
yards 68 23 0 0 0
td 0 0 0 0 0
fumbles 2 0 0 0 0

The QB draw was run 3 times once for 24 yards, once for 29 yards and Miller fumbled the snap on the third.  Neither defense in this game had an answer for the qb running the football, unfortunately Ohio State only had their qb for a little over a half.

Receivers

  comp targets yards td drops yac
Stoneburner 2 3 43 1 0 48
Fields 0 1 0 0 0 0
Fragel 0 1 0 0 0 0
Brown 2 2 48 0 0 12
Devin Smith 1 1 4 0 0 0

Nice to see you again Corey Brown.

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

  11 10 21 20 31 30 41 40
attempts 1 1 1     1 1 3
comp           1 1 3
yds           27 4 64
td               1
int                

Good day for Miller

For the receivers this is catches/opportunities

  11 10 21 20 31 30 41 40
Stoneburner 0/1             2/2
Fields   0/1            
Fragel     0/1          
Brown           1/1   1/1
Devin Smith             1/1  

By the book game for the receivers.  Fields did have a drop that would have been for a big gain that was wiped out by a holding penalty.
