  • SPORTS MOMENT: Most memorable games: Michigan 2006, and the 2010 Rose Bowl.

    Favorite moment wasn't on the field: I was walking back to my dorm the Thursday before the 2006 Michigan game, and I saw the suzaphonist by himself practicing the i-dot and bow, over and over in the rain.

Kyle, I have a question about the run game: Even though the play calling was a lot more diverse this past year, the core run play is still the tight zone, right? And the counters, power reads, sweeps etc. were constraints on the tight zone? Or has the base run play changed to fit Elliot's style better?

Can 11W just temporarily ban the gifs?

.comment-body img { display: none; } or something like that?

Ross, how is the sweep read (,P20Shot,P202014-11-02,P20at,P2011.08.11,P20AM.png.pagespeed.ic.GLq0_ATZzW.png) different than the OZ with pin and pull technique? They look pretty similar to me.

Let's take time to reflect on how happy we are that this went from a Michigan family to and Ohio State family.

One time I saw Mrs. Boren at a Skull Session with about 7 pairs of gold pants on her necklace. That family has to hold the record for most gold pants earned in one generation.

The responsibilities here (,P20Shot,P202014-12-27,P20at,P2012.25.10,P20AM.png.pagespeed.ic.Kiizc9JMRs.png) look very similar to Cover 4, or am I missing something? Can you contrast Saban's defense with Ash's or Narduzzi's?

This is one of my favorite articles on 11W in a while. You do a great job at explaining these concepts to guys like me who never played the game.

Even if they wanted to use those uniforms, they couldn't. The away team wears white.

Seriously, does everyone think he was the offensive coordinator for one year? I don't think many OCs would pull together an offense when your options at QB are Joe Bauserman and a true freshman playing without a good offensive line and few offensive weapons.

I know Tressel had a much bigger role to play, but think of all the great offenses Bollman was involved with. Sheesh, it's like people forget that he was the OC for the 2006 offense.

That year was a disaster. He was only part of the problem. He was the offensive coordinator for some great OSU offenses. I know Tressel deserves more credit for those teams and championships, Bollman was the offensive coordinator. I can't believe how so many people don't give him any credit. Any offense that has to choose between Joe Bauserman and a true freshman playing QB with a bad offensive line and few weapons on offense isn't going to be good.

1. You think football has recently become "popular" at OSU? You're not a whole lot younger than I am, but gain a little perspective. As a program that has experienced a ton of success, OSU has always had lots of fair weather fans who don't know much about football. That's the nature of a winning sports team.

2. Students have not been randomly placed around the stadium since around 2006. The entire south stands are students, and specific sections in the north endzone -- in decks A and C -- are entirely students.

I'm not Ross, but I'll take a shot at this: Teams called those WR screens because the weak spot of cover 3 is the flats. Cover four with pressing corners covers the flats well.

Its weakness is play action passes because the safeties often bite hard on run action and corners getting beat deep by WRs because they often don't have safety help. (Ross, is that right?)
