Grew up near the S&G course over on McCoy Rd. My grandfather was head of Neurology and a surgeon at Riverside Hospital. He knew Woody and would assist the team med wise. Ended up out West in my teens and fell in love with the mountains. Graduated from Park City HS and the University of Utah. I work in technology supporting Gov't accounts. Happily married to a Duck fan and living in Denver with our two sons (who are not Duck fans). GO BUCKS!

I had the same debate with a ND fan as well.  He brought up the replay and started bitching that the RB was down before Decker hit Smith.  He didn't realize that there was a fumble on the play and the whistle had not been blown.

Felt really bad for the kid. You're right.....It was a freak injury.

I noticed that he did not hand the ball to the official.  I'm wondering what the Senator did as punishment for such a transgression.

I was thinking the same thing, especially with Braxton and Carlos.  I always felt the big negative with Braxton was his run reads. I can remember a couple of misreads in the B1G championship that really cost tOSU some 3rd down conversions and some possible big plays. The one think we don't know was if the coaching staff was telling Braxton to keep it.  IMO, I don't think that was the case. Like you stated, I think it was more of a situation where Braxton wanted to place the outcome on his shoulders, especially in the 4th qtr, and it's hard to criticize him for it.  However, football 101 on both sides of the ball is reading your keys.
