Guiton was a beast. But I think you all already knew that. Jordan Hall also graded out really well - he's making plays himself, not just running through the giant holes in the line. Although there are giant holes in the line to run through.

One thing that is quickly becoming apparent with this offense - we don't work out of a lot of really different formations or personnel. We do, however, love flexibility in some of our players. The fact that Heuerman can split out wide and that Spencer is a beast blocking on the outside is a big of what makes this offense tick.

We tend to work out of the pistol and the shotgun, although we rarely start in the shotgun. We motion from Pistol into Shotgun so many times than many of the charters stopped bothering to mention it. I'd love to hear whether this is based on a read or just something we do.

Currently this is missing the fourth quarter. I will add it in as soon as I get it.

Guiton rode the RB too long and fumbled the ball when he pulled it out and tried to run. Linsley had stupid Personal Foul for pulling Cal player off pile up - it was offset by Cal penalty for excessive celebration.

1-1 Shotgun Trips Left Open Right WR Screen Left 4 0 DEAD ON

4:37 CAL 16 2 and 8 RUSH Wilson, Dontre -5
1-1 Shotgun Double Wide Double Slot Sweep Right      
Plus: Minus: Heuerman
Heuerman missed down block on backer - shot through tackled Wilson for loss, If that block is made Wilson has chance to score.

14:26 OSU 21 4 and 14 PUNT Johnston, Cameron 61
N/A-N/A Punt Traditional Punt from Cameron      
Plus: Minus:
Gus Johnson speaks too early - "not a great punt." Johnston booted it 40 yards, and picked up 21 of roll. 61 yards. 0 return. Net 61.
12:02 OSU 40 1 and 10 RUSH Hall, Jordan 1
2-1 Pistol / Shotgun Left Triple Zone Read Option      
Plus: Minus: Guiton
Wilson comes in motion from the right slot to behind Guiton (pistol). Hall is Guiton's left and Heuerman is behind Mewhort. The play sets up as a triple zone read option - however, Guiton hands off to Hall, the wrong read. The line gets no push, and Hall bounces it outside right for a yard. On the backside, Guiton essentially has a 2-on-1 with himself and Wilson versus one (maybe two) Cal defender.
11:47 OSU 41 2 and 9 SCREEN Wilson, Dontre 5
1-1 (slot) Pistol Left PA WR Screen Right 6 0 CATCHABLE
Plus: Minus:
Heuerman in the slot left. Wilson in the slot right. Guiton fakes a handoff to Hall in the pistol, the fires to Wilson who is widening out right. Corey Brown doesn't get a very good block and Wilson takes it up the sideline for 5.
11:22 OSU 46 3 and 4 PASS Brown, Corey 7
1-1 (WR) Shotgun Trips Left   5 7 CATCHABLE
Plus: Guiton, Linsley Minus:
Quick strike by Guiton to Brown to the right. Heuermand also appeared open in the middle of the trips left. Good pickup by LInsley for a pancake.
10:58 CAL 47 1 and 10 PASS Spencer, Evan 0
2-1 Pistol / Shotgun Left PA Pass 4 31 CATCHABLE
Plus: Linsley, Mewhort Minus: Refs
PA to Hall, who starts off to Guiton's left. Wilson is directly behind Guiton. Spencer has a step and the ball is maybe a half-step over throw. Can't really fault Spencer for not catching it, as he is clearly interefered with from behind before the ball arrives.
10:50 CAL 47 2 and 10 RUSH Guiton, Kenny 12
1-1 Shotgun Left Zone Read Option      
Plus: Guiton Minus:
The bread and better zone read. Hall goes out right and Guiton cuts up the middle for a first down, despite some pretty mediocre blocking by the O-Line.
10:31 CAL 35 1 and 10 PASS Heuerman, Jeff 0
1-1 Pistol Left PA Pass 4 26 BAD
Plus: Decker, M. Hall, Mewhort Minus:

Plus: Minus:
The "option" left - Guiton shovel passes it to Hall.
8:44 CAL 1 3 and 1 (G) RUSH Hall, Jordan 0
1-1 Shotgun Right Dave      
Plus: Minus:
Nothing doing on dave up the middle.
8:24 CAL 1 4 and 1 (G) RUSH Hall, Jordan 1
1-1 Shotgun Right Dave      
Plus: J. Hall Minus:
Essentially the same play as before, but Hall hesitates a second before cutting back slightly to the right for the TD.
4:32 OSU 25 1 and 10 PASS Brown, Corey 7
1-1 (slot) Shotgun Left PA Pass 4 5 CATCHABLE
