Yeesh. I thought that Golden Tate was one of two receivers in the pattern that got him open deep. Close, but not quite:
That was a one-man route. Trent on the screwup:
He used a double move to create confusion between senior cornerback Morgan Trent and junior safety Stevie Brown. Seconds later, he was behind both of them, celebrating in the end zone. At the time the play-action pass was Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen’s longest career completion.
“I guess we were both pretty confident that guy was taken,” senior Morgan Trent said. “I put that on myself as a senior.”
I foresee a shower of –3s for the secondary on that play.
Sssssh. Iowa beat Iowa State 17-5 last weekend, then did this:
Those classless wads, telling… uh… the home crowd to be quiet? This year’s BATTLE FOR CORN was at Iowa. WTF?
Black Heart, Gold Pants provides an explanation:
there is absolutely no way King's and Dalton's derisive "shhh" gestures were directed toward anywhere but the student section. Why, you ask, would the football team treat its home crowd like hostile intruders? Oh, Jake Christensen might know.
There have been smatterings of boos at Michigan home games so far… let’s not get it to the point where Michigan players are making the above gesture.
This sounds familiar. Rey Maualuga in the aftermath of USC’s 35-3 pantsing of Ohio State:
"They did everything we saw on film, nothing changed," said USC linebacker Rey Maualuga.
This, of course, is straight out of the Lloyd Carr Bowl Opponent handbook and should send shivers down the spine of any Ohio State fan. Not that they aren’t already shivering.
