Not a lot of throws this week, the defense scored twice and Boom had the game of his life at the collegiate level.

 

Pryor started off the game hitting Posey right on the money into tight coverage.  He followed that up by throwing one away after avoiding pressure on second down and then dumping off a two yard pass on 3rd and 9.  The next two possessions included two incredibly overthrown short passes and Herron dropping a 3rd down pass after Pryor avoided the blitz and rolled out to his right.

 

Three bad reads, the first is on 3rd and 5 with 8:25 left in the first half.  Ohio State goes with a 5 wide formation, Penn State countered with a linebacker blitz that Pryor fails to read as Sanzenbacher is wide open in the middle of the field at the first down marker.  The defensive end coming inside and linebacker looping outside leads to confusion at the line of scrimmage and a sack is the end result.  The second bad read is on 2nd and 12 from the Penn State 25 yard line, Sanzenbacher is open for 6 early, Pryor delivers late for the interception.  The third bad read is the first bad read for a touchdown that I have seen this season.  Pryor throws deep into double coverage (this is actually the middle and short side deep coverage in the cover three).  Pryor has two short recievers he could have taken for a safe 4-8 yard gain (It was 2nd and 23).  The third deep man for Penn State (the one on the wide side of the field) is even with Sanzenbacher but is closing on Brown short of him to the sideline.  Throwing to Sanzenbacher wide of the opposite hash towards the endzone is most likely the correct read here if you are set on the deep throw.  An excellent effort by Posey who still manages to jump for the tip even with the Penn State defender climbing his back is matched by the effort by Sanzenbacher chasing a pass that is not intended for him.

Pryor had an additional big gain on a designed run taken away on a holding call, one of the scrambles was for 7 yards and a first down.

Not a lot of targets to go around, but Sanzenbacher getting one target that is late when a good throw gets him a touchdown has to be frustrating for all involved.

 

Pryor put it in the air 13 times, with 8 catchable or dead on, and gets bailed out in a big way by great effort from his top two wideouts on a game changing play.

No matter where you got this from, it's fantastic. Great breakdown.

You know you guys said you would promote blog posts to the front page and it hasn't happened much yet, but I nominate that these get promoted weekly. It should help more ppl see these and encourage more ppl to write great posts like this.

Good call.  It's something we have to get better at - promoting some of these to the front page.  This football season, we've been so burdened with football coverage and some of the technical challenges with running the site, that we've lost focus on a bit of that.  That will change soon, however.

Yeah, and I hope I didn't come across snarky, I wasn't trying to criticize, I was just bringing it up. Love the changes to this site and I think the readers are what makes it great and it would be a great way to gain more and better readers to have blogs promoted. They are kind of an afterthought on here as of right now, with the Stories and Buckshots getting most of the attention. The forum and the blogs will take off over time I'm sure.

Big thanks to PhillipJFry for doing these.

I've said this before, but I'm not sure how I feel about all the ripping off of MGoBlog we do over here, it being scUM and all, but I guess he is the best for a reason and we can take a lot of good pointers from him and his site. Maybe I should think of it less as ripping off and more of, improving and Buckeye-itizing.
