Here is there matchup over the whole game. SIAP but I searched and didn't see it:
edit: sorry it's below
1:04 and 2:06 are possibly the slowest and least effective spin moves of all time.
for pointing that out. I would have never noticed, but now I have had myself a couple of chuckles at Tom's expense.
I would definitely not classify those moves as explosive.
You obviously never saw me play defensive end in high school.
"He's gonna try to go outside again, and I don't think it's gonna work."
That was great blocking by the o.line on that big throw to get within fg range at the end. lewan owned him. d.robs foot work was incorrect on the missed throw to gallon. get your technique down son.
true about denard's footwork on the miss to gallon, but you can see that he also throws off his backfoot on the final pass that gets us in field goal range
gotta take the bad with the good
On the replay of that, it looks like Denard is fitting in the throw between two defenders and Gallon didn't do a great job of sitting down in the hole. Perhaps that one is not necessarily on Denard.
The Donkey Rodeo and pancake breakfast @ 0:20 is by far my favorite. Gholston is so terrible. It's great.
Gholston was completely ineffective the entire game. Either his draft stock is way too high, or Lewan deserves more attention than he's already getting.
I hope to see the same match up next yr.
He has no moves at all, just bull rushes and the slowest spin move ever...what a waste just like his cousins.
My favorite Gholston moment was when he was completely stone walled by AJ Williams.
Where's the threat?
You racist bastard.
in my opinion.
forgave Lewan for calling him names. He didn't even try to break his arm this year.
There are Rotisseries that spin faster than Tom Gholston.
By fun, I mean not fun. My dad's rotisserie has some crappy plastic piece in it that always melts after a month or so of usage (obvious design to create the need for further rotisserie purchases). I believe a metal piece was fabricated by my dad/brother to replace it. Not sure what I'm trying to say. I guess Gholston is the plastic piece.
He has the work ethic of cousin vernon.......
And the pad level of a leaping tacopants.
My favorite gholston moment was after the final play. When all the other tool off their helmets, he strapped his on. He was afraid to show his face. Watch the replay.
I just don't understand it.
He had the wind knocked out of his head vs OSU. But other than that I don't know. Maybe an injury during packaging class...
And Gholston discover that his MSU meal plan covered donuts and chocolate cake
lineman this whole video which i usually dont do (my eyes usually follow the pass/ball carrier) and other than the o-line's excellent play i noticed that denard has really, really improved his footwork in the pocket. he's pretty instinctive at side stepping the rush and sliding in the pocket, etc.
nice to see.
Lewan was handling Gholston well all game, and really, the whole offensive line was effective in giving Denard time to work, I thought, as well as opening gaps for a few long runs. As for Gholston, the only sack this year was against CMU and, now and again, I think you actually have to shed a block if you want to actually be effective as an edge rusher. Somewhere around the 4:00 mark, even Elliott Mealer knocks him back a yard or two. Nice to see others get involved in the "Whatever, William" sweepstakes there. Gholston is just not an explosive playmaker, but that's hard when you only sort of have one move.
I believe you mean the "Whatever, Tom" sweepstakes
You talking about Tom Gholston ?
Today's Tom Gholston
Not so much mean mean stride
They move Gholston to the other side away from Lewan a lot of the game. Do they do alot or was it to keep him away from Lewan?
No, that's just Gholston's position. It has nothing to do with Lewan
Poor Taylor Lewan. Did you notice how many hands to to the face penalties should of been called against Gholston. He's the one that said Lewan played dirty. RIGHT!
someone should post this over at RCMB and solicit comment. I'd be curious what kind of reaction it drew.
There was actually a thread on RCMB on Saturday night after the game bitching about how Gholston is terrible this year and should not even think about going pro. A lot of people in the thread were saying that Worthy was responsible for all of Gholston's success. They even had people acknowledge that he wasn't all that great last year, but had an amazing bowl game which led to the slurp fest this offseason.
Fail!!! Replied without reading the whole thread and the response directly below yours says the same thing as mine. Apologies
"there was a thread on RCMB bitching"
Even the lunatic homers at RCMB had a thread after the game about Gholston being pwned by Lewan, well except for the few who complain after every game that the refs aren't fair, they hate State, and if they called even half of the obvious holding calls, State would be undefeated and Gholston would be an All American.
(Btw, their is an editing issue in the OP.)
Watch the Omameh block starting at 1:24. He gets tripped from behind and continues blocking and driving Marcus Rush back while he's on his knees.
Patty O'mameh is an awesome irish name, too.
I noticed that during the game and was amazed at how well he did even when on his knees...that was a great play on his part.
So much for that pre-season All-American, first round draft pick hype, Gholston.
