Why didn't RR call any trick plays? Carlos Brown or Feagin could have at least tried to throw the ball. What did we have to lose!?!
lets work on getting our regular plays down before we start using trick plays. with sheridan out there sometimes i think a complete pass is a trick play
You need plays that are working to set up a trick play.
I thought we should have gone for it on fourth down when we were on the OSU 40 down 21-7. Only because field position wasn't going to make much difference at that point in the game and I first down would have gotten us into fg range. At that point I felt we still had some outside miracle chance of pulling out a win.
Regardless, we loss 42-7 so not like another score or first down would have made a difference.
Trick plays are fine, so long as nobody calls them "trickeration." Trickeration is not a word and you'd have to be stupid to say it.
That drives me nuts. Why does ESPN think it's uncool to say "trickery"?
It's a perfectly cromulent word.
my only thought here is that SHERIDAN = DEATH and Rodriguez knows this better than anyone.
When Sheridan completed a downfield pass, that was our trick play.
