I feel like every week a new guy steps up to make a huge play to change the game. Philly's big punt return this week, Smith's catch the previous week. Not to mention everything Braxton does every week. Its crazy to think how dangerous this team will be next year, there won't be one single guy you can key in on to win the game. There will be so many options to make so many big plays. 2013 is gonna be exciting.
The debriefing is seriously my favorite article week in and week out, keep em coming!
I hope Se'Von gets eleventy billion sacks.
If he gained a little weight it would be kind of cool to see him as an RB in the NFL. If that happened he may overtake Barry Sanders as my all time favorite NFLer.
I probably watch that clip and this one:
once a week.
I think one of the things we all forget is that the majority of these guys are freshmen, sophmores, or juniors getting their first real shot at playing time. Add that to the fact we've gone from #WALRUSBALL to a competent offense, and I think we can give the guys some leeway.
I'm hoping we see these two things:
1) Load up the box, keep Bell in (relative) check and try to pick off an errant Maxwell pass or two.
2) Get Miller, Hall, and Hyde all in there together, maybe run a little triple option here and there. I think, in the end, it could be too much for Sparty to handle.
I agree with you. Outside of the UCF game, we were heavy favorites to win all of them. I know that whenever Tressel played Michigan, it alway seemed he had 2-3 plays drawn up that were unlike anything else we'd see the rest of the season. I'd love it if Meyer had been playing it close to his vest (jacket?) these last four weeks and opened up the entire playbook to blow out Sparty.
I still think something strange happened on that XP. It looked like the D Lineman one the outside left either timed the snap count perfectly or might have jumped offside. It almost looked as if Basil stutter stepped thinking there was a penatly coming and then realized he still had to kick the ball. I feel it was more than just shanking the kick.
I'm not using it as an excuse, just wondering if anyone else saw it the way I did.
I'm glad Meyer has chosen to bring in coaches who all have philosophies that differ slightly from his. I think it provides an opportunity to complicate our offensive and defensive shcemes, epsecially, as stated, when things get "stale."
Yay defense, you were great! I heart you. But in order to beat a Wisconsin or *gasp* possibly even a Michigan we're gonna need more than four forward pass attempts. At least an occassional play action or something.
That or become Georgia Tech north.
Good read Thoma. Perspective. I guess that's key.
