Love El Guapo, but holy crap, that O-line!  So many of those holes were just massive.  Lots of excellent downfield blocking by Evan Spencer as well.

Philly Brown had TWO great blocks on the crazy Hyde touchdown run.  He made an initial block on the outside that let Hyde make his cut up field.  When Hyde got swung back around Brown stayed alert, realized that Hyde had regained his balance, and took off, escorting Hyde toward the goal line.  Brown then trucked a big linebacker allowing Hyde to dive into the end zone for the score.  GREAT job by Brown on that play.

Have to say, in my opinion, Reeves' play was not adequate.  It is inconceivable to me that Roby would not start next week if that decision is based solely on what the two have shown on the field.

Just returned from a trek in Nepal.  I tried 3 different times to get an O-H-I-O photo of me (O), my wife (H) and our guide (O) - Mt. Everest being the I.  Would have been classic.  Unfortunately had to rely on strangers to take the pic and no one could get it right.  One of the major disappointments of my life.

I think we may be being a bit naive about this type of situation.  Urban is not a saint and recruiting is cutthroat.  As a head coach your job depends on it and hard decisions have to be made.  I think there are good ways and bad ways of doing this and hopefully we are doing it the good way - being honest with kids about exactly how firm their scholarship offer is, explaining possibilities, etc.  By the way I believe that Taivon Jacobs was also affected by this situation.  He may not have been told that  his scholarship was going to be pulled, but I imagine that he was told that, look we got some guys coming in, you might not get a lot of playing time here, you might want to reconsider.  It's unfortunate, but this is the reality of the situation.  This is, of course, further complicated by the kids that want to wait to announce and hold out until national signing day so they can make a big splash or whatever, that really puts the coaches in a tough situation.
