No dead on throws this week.

 

Two bad reads.  Around 4:47 left in the half Illinois sent a linebacker on a blitz, the defensive end covers Saine out of the backfield, Pryor throws to the area the blitz came from without hesitation.  Unfortunately Illinois has this area well defended for their first interception of the year.  With 14:16 left in the game, Pryor throws a shovel pass intended for Boren, the defensive end in the way almost comes away with the interception, but Pryor manages to knock the ball out of his hands.

 

Two inaccurate passes, both deep balls.  On 3rd and 11 with 11:38 left in the first half Pryor throws downfield to a single covered Posey who cuts further towards the middle of the field than Pryor expects.  With 7:30 left in the first half Pryor makes a man miss in the backfield, then overthrows an open Sanzenbacher in the end zone.  A sack later in the series knocked Ohio State out of field goal range.

 

Pryor threw one ball away at the end of the first half, it was in the general direction of Sanzenbacher on an out cut, but thrown well out of bounds.

 

Posey had a rough day short arming two catchable balls downfield.

No scrambles out of Pryor, who did serious damage on the 4 non quarterback sneak called runs.

Not a big day for the passing game, so small numbers for the receivers.  Given the frequency that Illinois had their defensive end covering running backs in man coverage it was disappointing not to see Saine on a wheel route.

 

Pryor put it in the air just 16 times, with 11 being catchable.

I'm convinced Ron Zook paid off a witch doctor.  Three-straight seasons held under 100 yards passing is mind-boggling. The weather was lousy in Columbus last year and Champaign has permanent windy stink, but it's kind of hard not to crack 100 yards passing in FBS.

As always, he's so fun to watch when running in the open field. I can't wait for him to finally take a 50+ yard run to the house (especially if it comes at home).

Agreed on Pryor breaking one for six (against somebody other than the EMU).  Obviously he needs to be healthy, but Posey, Sanzenbacher and Stoneburner forcing defenses into man coverage in the secondary could help.

I was suprised (pleasantly) with Ohio State's ability to run the ball when everybody knew they were going to run the ball.  Upon second viewing Herron ran well and against defenses stacked against him.  6 yards on 4 carries in the first half, 8 carries 38 yards in the 3rd quarter and 12 carries 51 yards in the fourth.

Zook should have paid off a second witch doctor to keep Ohio State under 5 yards per carry in the past three meetings.

I thought he could of had six on his first big run against illinois if he would have stayed ont he outside instead of cutting in tot eh middle of the field.

 

maybe i'm wrong, but that's what i saw.
