Big time play by Kenny G leads to his first win in the Helmet Sticker competition, largely on some beautiful touchdown passes and killer reads on the option. Heuerman also came up big from the tight end spot. On defense, Jamal Marcus has a surprise upset with a couple big plays in the second half. Look for him to work his way into the regular rotation. 

In terms of Minuses, no one, including Armani Reeves, had the kind of no good very bad day Reeves had against Buffalo. Solid tackling and blocking werethe name of the day - good fundamental football. The biggest minuses come from Devin Smith dropping a few passes that should have been caught.

Shazier was surprisingly quiet for him today. Look for him to make more splash plays against Cal.

In terms of the O-line, Mewhort was the anchor, but all of them managed to break even. Decker had his fair share of ups and downs, while Linsley and Boren were quietly solid.

Now I'm just going to talk a while because the blog software requires 200 words in a paragraph tag and apparently my mountains of tables aren't enough to let me post this.

And remember, that the Buckeye Charting Project is only good as the 11W community makes it. We still need volunteers for charting the Cal game. Sign up at

While football knowledge helps, all you really need is a recorded or torrented copy of the game and a willingness to learn. Enjoy!

This is a really cool and original idea for a blog post!  I have always wondered how they awarded the Buckeye stickers, and how different positions were judged against one another.

Sorry to disappoint, but this isn't the official helmet stickers that OSU gives out. We're just calling it that to keep in the theme. They're just plays that the charting volunteers picked out as being exceptional.
