I agree with you that we didn't capitalize the way we had the rest of the season, but I also think the refs played a disproportionately large part in that.

Momentum is huge. These are 18-22yo kids out there. Think of how down you'd get at that age when it seems like the authorities are stacking the deck against you. On the other side of the field, think how much momentum builds in those kids with just a few lucky breaks. 

If Wade isn't ejected, we're up 16-0 and Clemson has to punt the ball back to us. Maybe the momentum shifts and we start stepping on their necks from there on. 

If that fumble call doesn't get butchered, maybe the Clemson players get down and don't get back up again.

Jungle Jack say it ain't so! Kinda doesn't feel like he's going out on top, with the way this year has gone so far. Surprised he'd want to go out on such a low note, but I guess when you're done you're done.

Yeah there were definitely hints of the "we don't know how to use him" to come, but he had a solid WR game without the spin move. He had that ~20yd diving catch and ~50 TD reception. (Maybe a few others sprinkled in there, too.)

That's why I'm so confused by this – it's not that I'd expect him to have that impact every game, but he never had close to that impact again. Not sure what changed after game 1.

So basically you're saying that was his Noah Brown vs OU night? Cause he looked like a pretty solid WR that night.

Comment 03 Jun 2020

Hah - fair point. I did thoroughly enjoy rewatching that game though. (In spite of my knowledge of the future of the season...)

...you just put a great athlete on the field and they magically know all the ins and outs of actually playing a spot they've never played before.

I totally agree with you, but Brax certainly seemed to understand how to be an explosive WR that night.

Comment 05 May 2020

To me, the XBrax years felt so volatile at the time - like every game was a single play from going completely wrong. But it sure was a hell of a lot of fun to watch.

Thanks I found the thread. Right now the torrents are going very slow, but as long as I get to watch them I can't complain. Thanks again!

That explains it. I just wish they'd at least make them available to rent/buy. Not sure my heart can handle rewatching the 2018 defense.

Sorry about that - I've always posted in OSU FB and didn't even think about it. Force of habit.

I'm sorry you were forced to read and comment.

  1. It's not like I dug up a single, out-of-context,  obscure tweet to make them look bad. Most every pundit had their preseason money on TTUN to win.
  2. I wasn't complaining about OSU at 8% (it's ridiculous, but that wasn't my point). I was complaining about Xichigan at an 48%.
  3. Xichigan has looked objectively bad in every game they played, not just this game against a good opponent.
