Just some context for that intro highlight.  That's him against the USA U-19 team (coached by Myers) with about 5 seconds left to go in the game and Inacio's team was down by one.  So that's a F/O win and a goal to tie the game at the end of regulation.  They went on to win.

I think for this sort of thing you need to look at advanced statistics.  Those teams may be that low because they played a great Wisconsin defense.  The advanced stats take into account the strength of the opponent.

  • LSU - 36
  • Akron - 58
  • Georgia St - 114
  • Michigan St - 75
  • Michigan - 37

Paints a little different picture.

That was the narrative.  But that was only among people who watched box scores, and not film.   He had a couple bouts with viruses and a rib and a foot injury.  All while dealing with teams running away from him and double/triple teams - just like Bosa.  Just watching the first 20 plays of the first game of the season and he was wreaking havoc - but it was an obvious gameplan to take him out of the play as much as possible and sometimes his actions cause incompletions or someone else to make the tackle that you see on the box score.

I feel like a lot of us saw this coming this year.  Seems to always happen to the big DEs - see Clowney, Jadaveon.  I thought Bosa was incredible in the 2nd half against Indiana on first watch.  Seemed like every running play he was in the backfield/stretching the play out/making the RB run backwards.  Don't think his stats showed it but he was wrecking.

What is not transparent about it?  He's said all along he's coming back.  His dad said he was coming back.  Urban said he was coming back.  JT said he was coming back.  It's everyone else that has said and speculated otherwise.  Braxton literally just said we got another year to do it.

I would guess he's playing zone to the boundary.  There's no wideout over there, so he'll have one of those TEs, the FB, or Gordon.  So when both TEs stay in and block he still has nothing.   He's probably the outside contain on the run so he can't commit into the hole like a LB would.  But that's seriously just a guess.

You must not be watching the same special teams as the rest of us.

#1 in starting field position.  #2 in opponent starting field position.  #2 in short field starts (at the 50 or closer to opponent's endzone).  #9 in opponents long field starts (inside their own 20).  #1 in own long field starts.

It doesn't really change anything.  OSU has had plenty of players from NJ with a spattering of Philly and Baltimore guys.  The "local" games covered in basically all of New England are Penn State games and have been for awhile.
