Someone call the guys from Delta House! Have them break into Herman's office and steal the play book, leave only the page with the TE quick out or shallow cross plays!!
2001 forward for all you gregorian calendar/century users.
Great breakdown of the breakdown Gary.
Ahhh, had I waited 1week I'd have been able to order the 11W Grand Slam of merch all at once!! Great look with the 11W Seal as your first offering. The track tee is so soft, I love my "Great Seal of the State of Football" tee. Any chance you guys will be rolling out more shirts in the very near future?
I agree with that. I was just saying that 30 - 40 yd Go routes weren't the only option. Herman had soooo many options but kept sending the WRs out deep. Heuerman is 6'5" 255, he should have been a staple of the passing game once it was clear Foster was turning his dogs loose.
I disagree here YTOWN. If they had run and completed a few slant routes, the safeties would have had to back off some. Had one of the WRs slipped his man and gone to the house they would have backed off indeed.
+1for that tip sir. "havoc in the Horseshoe" I like!!!
Smith - 88
Edit: I'm a lock to win since I just bought these, the whiskey glasses, and the gray snapback hat on Wednesday.
Yes you could use Rod Smith. Yes he's big. Yes he's fast. We know this (you tell us all the time in 500 words or more). I think the idea of not having a "Bruiser" in there is to confuse the defense, create mismatches or blown coverages, resulting in a big play. You could use it on any down or distance. Power is not needed since it's not a designed run. J.T. gets the snap, 5 Burners launch in 5 directions, and the opponent goes "Awwww WTH???"
I say run this with a man in motion for even more defensive churn.
We had a Zenith that looked just like that while I was growing up!! Earliest I remember was 1978, but I think my folks got it in 1973/4 and it lasted until sometime after I joined the Navy in 1992!!
The first 2 years of my marriage I tried to juggle a new wife 2 daughters and football on the weekends. I'd already given up on Pro ball, and I made a deal with my wife, I'll go anywhere you want on Saturdays as long as I can watch the Buckeyes live. After a couple of years she realized I wasn't asking for much. I'll record and or pause any other game to take care of household stuff (breakfast for the now 3 daughters and her), and I have all Saturday for College ball!!
Kirk looks damn fast in this highlight reel. I hope Urban can seal the deal this weekend!!!
I'm looking to try one of these burgers this year. It's been awhile since I've been to the Puyallup. Kids are old enough now to graduate from county fair status!!
As do I. My wife hates it. First time I wore it she asked "Who's Dave?" I just laughed.
I've been lurking the halls here since '08, been a member since 2010. I can't tell you all how many thousands of hours I've spent reading all the stories, Buckshots, posts & forum topics since then. I'm not big on commenting, but I wanted to say thank you to you all!! That goes to Staff & Commentariat alike! The content & comments here are hands down "Best on the web!".
Hey Jason, couple of requests, how about a new "mix tape" for us old guys & could you launch the new site on a Saturday so we get one more "Bucksfan Icon" Friday forum bump?
Got to say that half of Watkins yards were YAK After a 2 yard screen pass. Hard to put the blame on Reeves when his coach lines him up 10 yds. off the line.
right, if only we had a QB on the team that had a better command of the play book so that our coaches weren't forced to play an injured Braxton...
I was wondering the same thing. Looked like 2nd down with 2 timeouts left.
As well as the one before that. Not sure if Braxton was physically able to or not, but had he put a little air under the ball that last pick could have been a game winning TD.
I'll back you on this Salty, while they never looked like they had the confidence to look back early enough to make a play on the ball, I did see improvement on how they made a last min look to at least defend the play.
I really agree with you on "where was Kenny G?" I thought for sure we'd see him after the next to last Miller int. I was hoping he'd come in and stone cold lead us to victory!
If he could barely throw the ball, what the hell was he doing in the game? More to the point why all the deep routes when we knew a blitz was coming? All kinds of out routes to the tight ends that could have been called on to save Miller some of the hits he took tonight.
All the momentum was handed away to Clemson on that muff
Would be nice to see the likes of this get a little air time on the networks instead of the punch from '78.
I voted yes, but I'm not one of those guys. While on paper The Game should have been a bloodbath, with that one I know better. I just believe that Hyde's motor gets the better of a tired Shartan D in the 4th.
