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 throwaway batted pressure

The first and last attempt of the night both get dead on designation.  On his first attempt of the night Miller throws 43 yards down field and hits Brown in the facemask.  On his last attempt of the night he throws late over the middle across his body while sprinting right.  If the middle of the cover three hadn't rushed up field due to the threat of Miller running the football the previous description would no doubt be filed under bad read.  In our reality the pass is out of the reach of the two defenders still deep in the Wisconsin secondary and finds Devin Smith who never stopped his route.

The bad read is a 3rd and 11 play at the end of the third quarter where Miller either doesn't see the mlb, or doesn't think the mlb can reach the pass, either way he wrong.

The first inaccurate pass is a 3rd and 5 in the second quarter when Miller overthrows Brown going down the right sideline.  A dead on throw here could have been a touchdown.  The second is Miller trying to force a ball into Stoneburner on 3rd and goal just before the second field goal.

Runs

att 14 2 3 0 0

The offensive line played an absolutely outstanding game against Wisconsin.  All 3 sacks were outside the pocket chance to the throw the ball away variety.  Miller had a 14 yard scramble on a play where the offensive line and running backs picked up a 7 man rush.   And Miller picked up more than 6 yards per carry on designed running plays. 

Receivers

  comp targets yards td drops yac
Stoneburner 0 3 0 0 1 0
Boren 1 1 7 0 0 3
Brown 4 6 34 0 1 3
Devin Smith 1 1 40 1 0 0
Hall 1 1 8 0 0 4

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

 

  11 10 21 20 31 30 41 40
att 1 0 0 1 1 2 4 2
comp 0 0 0 0 0 2 3 2
yds 0 0 0 0 0 21 53 15
td 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0
int 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

A lot of throwing to wide receivers in tight coverage, which explains the low yardage after catch.


For the receivers this is catches/opportunities

  11 10 21 20 31 30 41 40
Stoneburner 0/1       0/1      
Boren               1/1
Brown       0/1   2/2 2/3  
Devin Smith             1/1  
Hall               1/1
