The exact order I would have selected as well.

I went with Touchdown Terry's catch and run. I was happy to see him do well.

I voted for the Master Teague play. Not just the run, but the team effort with Tate Martell racing behind to block.

I loved watching Tater help him finish the play.

Nothing cleanses the soul like a no call pass interference.

I agree, it was definitely the play most "award-winning", albeit all the plays from this week were pretty pedestrian.

THREE GUYS BOUNCED OFF OF HIM AND THEN HE OUT RAN THE SAFETY!! START MASTER TEAGUE!!!! lol

I agree it was cool to see Martell chase him to the house, but if that was zone read, it should have been Tate scoring. DE collapsed on the play and proper read was pull and run.

C'mon Kyle... Mike Weber going #BEASTMODE on his first TD run was the best play!

HS

@2:04 Weber should've been ejected for targeting for pushing the defender into his own teammate causing a head to head collision!!  lol

All good. I've been in the tank for Weber after the scamper at the Big House.

Had to go with the defensive score with Werner and Bosa.

I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.

Yes, sir. Defense wins championships. That’s what Grandma always said.

Pretty smart grandma ya got there, Navy! +1 for her!

There are no wrong choices here.

But I love that run by The Master Teague...added bonus to the Tater getting out there to escort MTIII to the TD.

I had to run away high, so I wouldn't come home low...

MCLAURIN'S  catch & go 6 was it for me.  Hard choice regardless

Buy the ticket take the ride.

HS

This was a really tough choice, but Weber's cut behind Victor was just so close to them tripping over each other, yet Weber cut at the exact right stride that I ended up voting for that. 

Maclaurin's reception was the very close second. The jets to outrun everyone else and them staying up on his feet just long enough to dive for the end zone was neat stuff.

HS

Voted for Terry but the blocking on the Weber run was spot-on at every level of the defense

HS

Farrell had a great game blocking and he sealed the edge on that play.

He looks like a strong blocker. Reminds me of Nick Vannett - who lacked a Jeremy Ruckert to pair with

I went with Werner and Bosa only because Weber gonna have a BUNCH of those by the end of the year.

 This is what you meant, isn't it?

Kudos on the format change. That tournament at the end will be fun.

I voted for my boy, Mike Weber, but I thought his other touchdown run was better than that one based on the toughness he showed and still wouldn't go down.

Ignorance isn't bliss for the rest of us.

HS

Love them all, but I gotta go with the defensive score as those are more rare.

HS
mockjocks's picture

Happy this segment was brought back for another year. I hope the criteria sways towards "play of the year" - something spectacular that you don't often see week in, week out in CFB.

Looking forward to a ton fo great plays from good guys!

HS

Yeah that strip sack -> TD play was a rarity unlike all the others and gets my vote. That said I can't get over how insane Teague's acceleration is. It's like 0 to 60 in no time

HS
minnbuck's picture

I will always vote for a Bosa TD.  Also, please tell me there are more Bosas.

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

Hopefully in another 20 years.

Most go for offense but I voted defense.

Went with McLaurin. Nice run after catch.

HS

When a 300 + pound offensive lineman moves his mass in pursuit of a DB who intercepted a pass and covers over 60 yards to chase down the culprit and prevent a pick 6, I have to give him a shout out.  I have never seen that before. Isaiah Prince for Heisman!

That was impressive! I hope he gets a Buckeye leaf for that outstanding effort!

I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.

Did I miss something? I didn't see Dru Chrisman's 65 yard punt downed by Terry McClaurin inside the 5 anywhere among the the choices.

Amen.  Wasn't on the GIF's thread either.  A 65 Yard punt, for Woody's sake!  Have we forgotten who we are?

As I texted @buckeyepastor following that punt:

I actually liked the power run of Weber's first TD run even though it was shorter. Broke more tackles ala Hyde.

HS
TShell's picture

Voted for Boss, but I agree with others that Weber's other runs were better highlights, even though they were shorter. I liked the one that called back too.

HS

I went with McLaurin, for proving the problems were not from the WR Corps

I don't have a button or anything to vote with.  Even reloaded the page twice.

I went with Terry's catch and run because I think it is most indicative of what we want the season to be, and perhaps most what we've been missing in recent years.  Haskins hitting his receivers in stride and letting them use their superior athleticism.  

HS

The Teague run is similar to a Beanie Wells run(s).

Had to vote for Master. Helped him get the helmet he used during signing day down here in Murfreesboro, TN. Met him and his family. Awesome folks!

HS

That wasn't even Weber's best run, imo.

HS
Always_A_Buckeye's picture

To me, the sole highlight from game 1 was the 2nd and goal td pass by Haskins resulting in our 1st TD of the season: the willingness and commitment to pass was in stark contrast from our tendency to run, run, run in years past. We are now predictable in a manner: Versatility.

McLaurin's play all day. How long has it been since we saw the passing game be so effective? Also, love seeing McLaurin succeed. Dude has stuck it out here and is finally getting some big plays again. The potential for this offense is sky high and I can't wait to see where it takes us.

Number 1 rule in life: always beat That Team Up North.
