PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Bucks rank 120th in the FBS by allowing 4 plays of 70+ yards this season.
0 allowed in 2011
0 allowed in 2010
Yikes almighty !!
Conversely, Bucks rank 1st in the FBS with 6 plays of 60+ yards on offense.
Had 2 in 2011
Had 6 in 2010
Yikes is right!!
that right there pretty much sums up why this season has had some really big highs and some bad lows. Nothing really bad because OSU hasn't lost yet.
This is the exact reason some of us are distraught about our defense and others are happy that we are 7-0. I think those stats sum that up pretty well. Pretty and Ugly all rolled into one.
But the good news is that many of these plays can easily be eliminated by a) better positioning and pursuit and/or b) better tackling in space. These are the plays that kill us, not the sustained drives. When our defense executes, they are very good (which is why I'd prefer to give up sustained drives because I doubt the ability of the opposing offense to move the ball 3-5 yards/play when our defense executes). They need to hit a point where the execute more consistently - and then we'll be a very dangerous team
Yikes is right. That stat doesn't really surprise me. We have given up quite a few big plays.
Heck, our total defense is ranked 10th overall in the B1G, with only Purdue and Indiana trailing us.

Completely embarrassing. We are supposed to be the silver bullets.
You sure we didn't give up four 70+ yard plays against Alabama? sure felt like it.
Those who stay will be CHAMPIONS!
im happy to be undefeated... pissed off to have a shitty defense...
mark may wins douchebag of the year... again
@sir rickithda3rd well said
O H I O is the Buckeye State
yes, but how many of those were against the UCLA running back?
~Because we couldn't go for three~
We didn't play UCLA. We played Cal.
If they don't fix the D, 12-0 ain't happening. At all.
70+ not good
1ST FREAKIN PLAY OF THE GAME! Who's the d coordinator and LB's coach? Fickell has to go no matter what!
