I think the worst is the Florida one. That is a football play. The vandy player catches the ball and HASN'T EVEN TOUCHED THE GROUND and the saftey comes over to try and knock the ball loose. That is simply playing the game, nothing else. What I am starting to ask myself is what sport is going to replace football when its gone, and seeing plays like that assure me it is on the way out. Lacrosse?
Thank you sir. In all seriousness if you were forced to pick a single player who won the game last night, it would have to be him. He pinned them deep every time he had a chance and usually they had no chance at any kind of a drive, giving the O the ball back with great field position. Never been such a fan of a punter in my whole life.
I totally get why kenny wanted to pull that football back out, if he got it out and pitched it dontre was gone
probably a completely biased view, but there is probably 20+ teams that could drop 60 on Nicholls State.
And you're really good at making funny jokes.
That last paragraph is exactly what I have been preaching to the people on here who are acting like the sky is falling. Thank you so much
I'd say from watching it was pretty clear they let off after that first quarter. Lots of halfback dives up the middle. Buffalo was pretty dialed in at that point.
Well the defense only really gave up one scoring drive, take take away the pick six and that drive where they started at what? the 25? and a lot of people are praising the defense right now.
Everyone knows Braxton can run the ball, no question. Against Buffalo there is no reason why he should be running the ball. He should have been doing exactly what he did, staying in the pocket(wow that is the most annoying word in the world when galloway is saying it, actually second most annoying, behind beth mowins "yards"), looking downfield to work on his passing against a live opponent. The goal this year is the national championship, and there is no reason to have your franchise taking a bunch of hits against inferior opponents early in the year.
You also don't show your hand in the first game of the year either. The play calling today was very restrictive. The read option is a great weapon for this team, and it was pretty clear the running back was getting it every time it was called regardless of what the defense was doing.
100% with you on this, He can occasionally get to the edge and have a nice gain, but as an everydown back I think there are better options without a doubt. Running between the tackles he just looks so,,,out of place
Absolutley drooling thinking about this Defense next year..2 seniors in the 2 deep? only 7 upperclassmen?? Don't get me wrong this season will be great, but that D is gunna be unbelievable for years to come
I really think without a doubt this team WOULD still win the BIG, first because this schedule is so light, and second because I think if you take Braxton out of the picture, this staff would just find ways to get the ball in the hands of the other playmakers on this team, seriously there are so many weapons on this offense and I think with Braxton under center you will not see many of them shine the way they could just because of how good he is. I think if Braxton goes out for an extended period of time, this staff would just throw devin smith, philly, dontre, EzE, Jalin, Hall, Hyde, Dunn, Ball(i could go on and on but you get the picture) and opposing defenses would have so many looks and players coming at them that they would have no idea what was going on. O and on top of that, Kenny G can hold his own back there as well.
just to give an example of Braxtons character I work down at nationwide childrens hospital and one night he came in to visit a patient, on his way out he had signed OSU stickers that he gave out to everyone in the lobby without anyone having asked him. pretty awesome to see such a big star be so cool
It would be great to see some more night games, but like nick said we should never end up like LSU..they play just about all their home games at night..what time did their towson game kick last week? 7?..that takes all the extra meaning out of it..id like to see 2 a year..saved for Wisky, ttun, Nebraska, Sparty, or a big ooc game.
I love that Cbs just decided to stick with this awesome NC Vtech game
Definetly all the crappy early games
Anyone else not worried about penn st like at all? i just dont feel like a team who cant kick a field goal from over 15 yards out has any chance against the buckeyes.
I agree totally with 713..thats the same thought i had on Kenny..a gamer..sure he doesnt have Braxton level talent..but he doesnt seemed fazed at all by being the back up or being put in a tough spot. As soon as Braxton went down you saw Kenny immideatly grab his helmet smiling ear to ear and run out on the field. He may not have had to throw but MSU knew the run was coming and that was a great option with hall for the big gain. He made the defender commit,, drew him in and timed the pitch perfectly. Like others on here said it is inevitable hell have to take more very meaningful snaps in the future, and its awesome he seems to welcome the pressure and spotlight.
in all seriousness..bama and lsu are 2 great teams, and the rest of the confrence is riding the coattails
your missing the fact that braxton made a lot of his yards happen with good pitches on the option
still having a tough time understanding these posts defending the defense today..maybe im just clueless
watching football on fox is....painful
i really hope you didnt just compare arena whatever to football
"Bigelow finished with four carries for 160 yards."....thats everything you need to know about this defense...give the freshmen playing time..because the upperclassmen(for the most part) arent getting it done.........o and ZACH MAYNARD looked like aaron rodgers..that is all.
^ he was just saying what all us buckeyes watching at home were saying, sounded pretty spot on
