You are allowed to cut inside-out, which is a block below the waist. Without understanding this, you may not know that cutting outside-in is considered clipping, and then you add the debate on where the contact actually was made and it seems an arguable at first.

I agree it was the right call (as was stated on the TV); however, some people don't watch with sound and I was just saying it seems rude to call someone out (especially from a free content site) for "not knowing the rules" when it's simply more a misunderstanding of the call.

Go Bucks.

Bert is easily my second favorite coach in college football outside of Urban Meyer because he is so freaking entertaining. That, plus the fact I love to watch Alabama burn equals WOOOOOOO PIG SOOIE.

The misunderstanding is because they called it a block below the waist. He did not hit him below the waist; however, like you said, he did cut block the defender illegally. They even said on the Dubcast that he didn't hit him below the waist meaning they didn't understand the call properly. No need to be a jerk.

Does anyone remember the rule for Medical Redshirts? I thought it was 25% or less of the season to be eligible. Either way, this is a huge bummer. I didn't think he was all that great in terms of catching/production, but this dude loved to block and play special teams. Sucks to see another season ending injury at a depleted position.

With Cardale not reading defenses/secondaries whatsoever, there is a huge concern about ball security and I think it's rightfully so.

This is beating a dead horse, but I really wish JT was given a chance to start the game with confidence and a hurry up offense, because I think they'd finally start to click. I get the feeling we won't see a QB change now unless there is an injury or a loss, which makes me really uncomfortable.

I was chatting with my buddy this weekend and we both think there's a good chance he slides into the 3-tech next year if Little Bosa impresses as a freshman like he is expected to (way too early to tell, but who cares). A line with Bosa, NT, TL59, and Hubbard at the other end sounds great to me.

Some of the recipes require a lot of ingredients but everything is super healthy and delicious. If something is extra complicated, I take a look at what I can skip and try and make my own cheaper version of it.

I really don't understand why they are "removing" the zone-read from the playbook. It would work wonders with Braxton and Zeke back there and at least gives the defense something to think about rather than Braxton running 100% of the time.

Either way, just get this guy a freakin slant or something and let him burn defenses. There's no excuse for not getting him the ball as a WR. Every play isn't going to be a touchdown and I think that's part of the problem with the offense now. I understand they want big plays, but you just need to execute your normal playbook and they'll happen.

Comment 29 Sep 2015

To my knowledge (which is not much), it does have a lot to do with the week to week. When you tell a player (say an o-lineman), we expect to see them in this front, if the DT he is in X gap, player Y will usually have him, etc. Then you run a shit load of practice plays against what that "look" will be so that it is hopefully muscle memory by the time the game starts. This is usually fixed once you get bread and butter plays because you basically learn how to run them against any front. With the new OC and QB coach + new weapons on offense, they really don't have any go to plays yet because they're trying a little bit of everything at this point.

However, what we're seeing is a lot of teams showing up in schemes we don't expect them to. I think a lot of of times it's happening because these are lesser teams and they're practicing schemes for the OSU game that they don't normally do because it gives them the best opportunity to win. When it is a quality team like Oregon last year, I imagine they think playing what they normally do is their best shot to win because they believe they are the better team. Therefore, OSU gets what they practice against all week and they just happen to execute better.

Just my 2 cents, but I'm probably wrong.

Whichever NBA Live had J Kidd on the cover for PS2 (02 I think?) was the last time I think it was worth playing. Using the right analog to play defense was awesome and the dribble/crossover controls were so innovative at the time. Im not really sure how they tanked so badly.

I agree on the QB situation; however, I prefer JT at this point.

One thing that needs to be noted is that this Hawai'i team deserves the respect similar to an academy team. For some reason, I feel like they have the same military-like discipline and fight as a squad, so there's no surprise the Buckeyes didn't cover (albeit still a lopsided victory).
