will be enshrined.
I can't wait for the gif
speaking of gifs, in my head this would be perfect: gif of the bomb from gardner to roundtree, then pat fitzgerald spliced in when he was hopping up and down celebrating the late hit.
i could probably watch those two in succession until forever.
But it'll be tough to top B. Graham's tackle of one Glen Winston.
I disagree. Maybe from a technique stand point, but in terms of what the tackle meant, Demens' is head and shoulders a better play. That hit means we're still in the hunt for a Big Ten title and a chance at the Rose Bowl.
Beat the Hawkeyes.
Had to walk around Chicago with wifey ran back to hotel and its the only play I saw. Beautiful
Make sure nobody spoils the rest of the game for you.
you need to see Roundtree's catch to set up the game-tying FG.
After watching tackling that was sometimes good and sometimes not so good, it was a great way to end the game. Also very good to see that the D stand tall after a tough day.
It's to the point that I expect the D will make plays like that--I'm still very happy, but I know they have it in them. That makes it much more fun to watch close games!
Nice solid form tackle. Ran right through him.
Loved the play call. Bait NW into running a dive and throw more linebackers in there than they can block. Demens with a beautiful finish as well.
took the words right out of my mouth.
As Griese was saying presnap: It's the first-time Mattison pulled out the 3 down-lineman formation all game.
Well it was about fucking time he changed something up. They hung 30 on us at home.
It kind of reminded me of OSU last year. We are going to struggle against quick teams until our young and quick LBs gain some more experience and we get better athletes at safety/corner.
Taylor needs more experience. Where was Avery all game? I don't recall seeing him at all. But them, Countess returning, Richardson, Ross Douglas, Wilson, Dymonte, etc. we won't have a problem at that position for years.
All the RPS!!!
That was pure genius given the way NW would check the formation. I did look like an easy two yards in there. So smart to get it out of Colter's hands.
That called baited me into running it into the middle. I was wondering WTF I was watching on that big 4th down play....Holy Crap, what a play and tackle
Demens with a beautiful tackle, but I really liked that formation Mattison had on 4th down.
perfect play call and perfect execution!!!
that game leaves me feeling very good about this team!
But they had tight splits and were running that baby inside.
That was taking out 4 quarters of frustration BOOM!
Love the Senior making two big plays in OT to win the game. That being said.....GO PSU!
i thought of BRANDAN GRAHAM when demens made that tackle.. good job for him for steping up after a poor showing in the pass coverage
What a game
I can't help but mention that the coverage on the go ahead touchdown was Demens. He made up for it nonetheless.
Well to be fair to him he's a LB and was matched up against their best WR.
They had the option set up on the other side but Black flew into the backfield. They had no choice but to run into Demens.
Better form tackle Demens today or Kovacs vs Western Michigan. Both just perfect technique.
Both are great, but Demens tackle won the game for us.
In the happiest, "who gives a shit" I can say. Both were awesome. I'll give this one the nod only because it was a game clincher.
I'm just waiting for someone to make one where something funny happens to him as he is jumping.
he's jumping, then it cuts to demens form tackling the shit out of him....perfection
An absolute death shot by Demens. He can wear whatever length shorts he wants from here on out.
It was good. It was a better play call...at least as far as RPS is concerned. I could tell (no, I'm no football genius by any means) that NW wanted to run the ball up the "middle". G-Matt called a pretty neat play call there, as someone mentioned above, the LB's were loaded to attack the A-gaps with 3 down-lineman across the front. Great play all around
It's official, we are shifting to the 3-4 D afterall.
It reminded me off when Brandon Graham destroyed that crappy state running back that went from jail to the starting line up. I can't remember any spartan running backs names. They're so forgettable.
Kovacs had the cutback and Demens was the spy on the left HB. Great play all around. Ryan was playing the gap to TE other side. We knew they were running and Demens kept his assignment. Great play!
Black got a great jump off the snap, split that double team, forcing the RB square into Demens.
Ross had another great hit late in the 4th quarter on a 4th down play. Great hit and form from a true freshman!
Should start over Morgan
