Devin excelled at making adjustments while the ball was in the air and placing his body between the defender and the ball so that only he could catch it.  The only way to keep him from catching it was to interfere.  It is those ball skills that I see lacking, especially on the underthrows.

And hate to play this card, but I think Urban knows a little bit more about football and the 2015 Buckeyes than us speculative internet posters, so I'm gonna side with him on this one. He made the right choice, for now.

I am with you.   Just because I don't understand all the reasons for Urb's decisions does not mean I think he is wrong.  He knows what he wants his players to do and knows who is better able to deliver on that day.  I would have been fired half way through the first year, and that is giving me the benefit of the doubt.  LOL

With Cardale, the offense seems to be more of a big play team and appears to this old couch potato as herky jerky in its approach.  With J.T. I think they look more methodical and more efficient in using the entire offense.  I am not suggesting the coaches were wrong in playing Cardale, I am simply sharing my opinion based on my observations - which are both questionable, at best.  Maybe it was the VT defense that dictated the coaching decisions.

At half time EZ had only four runs (vs. Cardale's 9) for 105 yards.  Urban did some half time correcting and the 2nd half was more like what we all expected.

Other than "THE MOVE" three things jumped out at me.  1. Vannett's seal block.  He made one guy change direction, then got in another man's way, giving Brax a lane to the second level.  2.  Zeke's block was vicious and gave B the time for his move.  3. #57 runs like a linebacker, not an O Lineman.  He was flying down the field and I didn't know that Slobs could fly.

Eleventy seven.   117. But only this low because J.T. will have his 75, and Braxton his 125, and Curtis his 75.

"We're playing the No. 1 team in America with 16 or 17, probably, first or second round (draft) grade guys,"

And Loeffler has only looked at the Defense he is up against!!

I long for my days in Ohio where the four seasons are -- 'Football, Recruiting, Spring Camp, and Waiting for football' -- instead of -- 'Almost Winter, Winter, Still Winter, and Road Construction.'

Birm.  I think 25-30 catches, 750 yards and 7 or 8 TDs is a little too much to expect from even Braxton against the VT defense.
