Just got home from the game...
This was the first game where I saw the defense rotating defensive linemen all the timelike Heacock used to. I like this. I saw Bennet, Miller, Washington, Spence, Hale all getting meaningful minutes.
Also I don't know what Illinois was doing but they had some scrub player standing in front of the offensive play signaled with a towel trying to hide the signals from someone apparently.
The wheel route to Rod Smith reminded meehan Tressel ran something similar to this with Brandon Sanie in 2007.
