or if Buford had passed it to the trailing Diebler, who was wide open as Buford was, I believe, being quadruple teamed. But having one guy who hasn't been performing well in that specific game dribble wildly up court and heaving up an ugly shot seems to be Matta's end of game strategy now, so who knows.
Maybe it's just me, but I wasn't impressed by most of those Maryland players when we played them last year, especially Melo Trimble. Keep him out of the driving lane and make him shoot, he's not a big threat.
13 is our next star qb, 4th string Stephen Collier
Totally agree with you, although it is probably mostly due to his Buckeye roots. I thought they showed a good amount of improvement this year, although there wasn't anywhere else to go but up from where Danny Hope left their program talent-wise.
I was going to comment this as well, I feel like every time he makes this signal, he is replaced by the backup either that play or the next play. I'm not positive that this is actually the reason, I just notice it because it means I get to look forward to some Rod Smith (or Jones) action!
The only thing that really surprises me with this depth chart is Billy Price getting the start again. If I recall correctly, Hale came in for much of the second half and that is when the offensive line (and as a result the offense as a whole) performed much better.
Honestly, I would have to say Braxton's passing late in the year is what I believe our biggest weakness will be. I was having this discussion yesterday and brought up how badly I remember his passing having regressed in the latter part of last season. He didn't believe me, so I went and looked it up, and in 3 of the last 4 B10 games, his completion percentage was woeful (below 50%). I don't claim to know the cause of this, if for example Herman's overreliance on the run crippled his passing rhythm, but I know for a fact that we cannot have these passing performances happen again this season in order for it to turn out as successfully as we all want.
I do think he has a point that he has an unrivaled highlight reel. However, I don't think he deserved the Heisman, not that Manti Te'o does either (I would much rather have Jarvis Jones on my team, for example, and Te'o's stats are nothing spectacular when a Wisconsin FB has forced more fumbles on the year than he has.)
Personally, my top two would be Colin Klein and Marquise Lee.
great article off a dominating performance, although Mr. Scott's double-double was with assists and not rebounds, which may have been even more impressive
