True. If you asked Spielman which year's performance he's more proud of do you think he'd pick the one where OSU won or lost?
Thanks to all of you for your daily readership, word of mouth marketing and buying up Dry Goods. Special shout out to the 12-dubs out there. We can't thank you enough for the support. Thanks to you guys we're as strong as we've ever been. Cheers!
Agreed. I had some notes scribbled on him and just forgot to include in the Best of Rest capsules.
Maybe. He put up big numbers in the '73 tie game but not in the three wins. At least not by his standards, I don't believe. I think he was held to under 100 in his last game stopping his 100+ yard games streak at 31.
Those 29 tackles came in defeat so the performance wasn't "eligible" based on my stated criteria. But yeah, 29 stops is insane. Nothing but love for Spielman.
That was my thought too. Yes, offense put defense in a bad spot with shitty time of possession and deserves the vast majority of the blame. No doubt it. But the D was facing two backup QBs and was very much aware Sparty wasn't looking to pass and couldn't get a couple big stops when they were needed most. Offense was worse but neither side gave a championship performance in my opinion.
Struggling for game pics to be uploaded for use. Bosa was far from great today but obviously bigger issues on other side of the line.
Yep. That was certainly a huge factor. Offense's horrid time of possession (21:50) helped wear down OSU defense big time.
Absolutely. Frankly, we've seen those bad angles and missed tackles for two years. His miscues are often overshadowed by the occasional big play. That and the fact Bell is so good he makes up for Powell being a very an average counterpart along the back line.
You sure that penalty wasn't declined? OSU wasn't credited with any penalties last week. http://espn.go.com/college-football/matchup?gameId=400763551
