Dead serious. I believe a lot of his responsibilities for the game were the guys slipping out of the backfield. I specifically recall his name mentioned, not for making a tackle, but for recognizing and following a TE on a play action. So I think this was his purpose, not to mention that Wisconsin was doing most their damage on the outside.
Say what you like and it's probably true, but JT has been hesitant all year and it doesn't even seem like he progresses through his reads. Hopefully the game slows down for him soon.
We learned a lot about this team last night. For me, it was mostly that we aren't as solid as I thought. Coaches and players need to improve, but the best part is that we are still in the game.
Beyond that, which I completely agree with, our perimeter blocking was non existent.
So much to improve. Just keep getting better.
He played great. Just doing lots of other things
Exactly. And then we had 2nd and goal from the 3 early in the game and we failed to score the td due to some weird play calling and execution. It's like we were over thinking a lot early on. At least we did go to him on the late 4th down calls and goal line series.
Wisconsin is the real deal. They pretty much beat us in every facet of the game except for the score. Hats off to them. Glad we escaped with a win.
Weber should have been used for the vertical running game. In contrast, Samuel is effective in motion, quick passes, and other efforts to go wide. However, attempts to get Samuel more touches resulted in his use on plays between the tackles where Weber would have been much more effective. While I would agree that we need to get the ball in our playmakers' hands, it can't be square peg, round hole type of stuff.
It's a bit of 20/20 hindsight vision, but we knew going in that Wisc had speed on the edge. We thought our perimeter attack was better, stronger and faster than their defense. Quite simply, we were wrong
Time to Zeke up and get settled in. Hope for a healthy game and Buckeyes win. Good luck all.
If ole miss loses to Arkansas, Arkansas moves to UTs spot. UT moves to ole miss spot. Ole miss into Arkansas spot. The SEC shuffle!
That's why our offensive performance is critical.
I heard 23A is clothing optional section. So much has changed since the boose infiltrated.
Let's not discuss this before a game and tempt Father Superstition.
Vandy makes you dandy. Abracadabra.
(Puts finger on nose)
Me too. I'll admit that I'm skeptical about our dl against a running team like Wisconsin. This will be a true test of that young group.
Our offense is the X factor. Can we get the edge and spread them out early? Can we pass efficiently early? Otherwise, we are in for it.
I just can't see us losing this game and that why I'm so nervous.
Off to a great start. Great win wahoos
Nervous for this game. Never know which team will show up for us.
Guy with 11w shirt just showed up on IU/neb.
4:35 in 1st.
And this is how Clemson survives.
State kicker is 1-3 today. Better get a td.
