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
