Refs minus 3.
Damn shame that interview kept announcers from commenting on the BS facemask
I kinda miss the days of having such an easy passing scheme like OSU that Denard Robinson could be a top-20 passer in the nation.
Denard was a top-20 passer?
In 2010 he was number #20 in passer efficiency in the nation. Ahead of RGIII and one spot behind Kaepernick.
To hear some of you guys wax nostalgic about Rich Rod, you'd think we were Oregon, scoring 50 points on everyone. We only had one good offense in his three years, and that offense fell apart down the stretch - we scored 7 points against Ohio and then 14 (against a Manny Diaz defense!) against Miss State. Seriously, can you call yourself a top-flight offense when Manny Diaz shuts you down?
I think the team was by far lost at that point. But you have to admit watching Miller have wide open receivers all the time because of the offensive design is pretty nice. Put Miller in Borges' pass scheme and I think he looks like Denard did in those schemes.
and Ohio crushed those top 20 passing schemes.
Urban ain't going to Miller more than he needs. Wisky still seems scared he's going to be pre-knee Miller.
Good lord, Gordon is good
We offered him back in the Rodriguez days. Magnus thought he would only go to Michigan as a safety. He filled out quite nicely.
Is Gordon hurt? I mean, was he hurt earlier?
TAMU vs ARK 31-27 with 12 minutes left in the 3rd quarter. Some fine D being played in the SEC this year.
Best football teams score a lot of points. That's what the SEC is doing this year, so it is thus true.
Was the only guy in world who didn't see that hold.
Goodness I hope OSU leaves space like that for Gardener
But since when has an opponent played to expectation in that way against us?
Who the hell is Gardener? The guy who cuts your lawn?
If they had taken the points in the first 3 quarters, they would not have had these desperation 4th downs in the 4th Q. This should be a one score game right now.
It hasn't been their style if play though. I do agree that looking back they would rather have those points.
Jesus christ Wisconsin...
Geeeeeeeez Louis Guzman
Wisconsin is killing themselves. Could have been another fumble recovery but a dumb illegal formation penalty takes it away.
Wisky is making so many dumb mistakes. Ohio is going to run them out of the stadium.
Wow, that just sucks. I'm fairly certain Urban Meyer practices some kind of referee voodoo.
FYI: It is raining so hard in Portland right now. Like hard enough to even comment on which us saying something.
We were all wondering....
My dog is being really cute right now too.
A beautiful pass for a 1st down ruined by a holding call.
Stave takes off in an attempt to make up 3rd and 21 and falls far short of the 1st down.
If the Badgers hadn't gotten called for illegal formation, the ability to get yards off a Bukeye special teams gaffe would have been nice.
Lots of facepalm in those few seconds of regulation.
I don't know if you can really knock Stave for scrambling there. He knew he wouldn't get the first but maybe there was no one option and he didn't want to risk an interception. He did give his punter some more room to work with.
The illegal formation though - ugh.
I never understand those illegal formation penalties on punts; it almost never affects the outcome of the play, and it can always be mitigated by lining up correctly. Silly to see it happen.
He moved back after the snap. Was he not supposed to be on the line?
Alex Collins for Ark as well getting run as a freshman RB, would love to see what Green/Smith aren't doing right that keeps them on the bench.
Bet they are fumbling in practice.
Also, it's not Fitz's fault that no one can block. Do you really think Green would be better with three guys in his face two yards on our side of the LOS?
If they are willing to follow their fullback for a 3 or 4 yd gain instead of trying to bounce and losing 2 yds then yea, I think that would be better. 2nd and 7 is better than 2nd and 12.
Fitz Following blocks and taking the three or four yards that are there would help. I still don't think that is the main problem. A lot of the times there is no hole because the interior has been caved in.
They can't play center and left guard.
See? Pressure his shit
Did anyone else notice that guy that lined up incorrectly lined up the same way the second punt?
That's either funny or sad.
Miller is definitely a step slow tonight.
Miller is easy to spell, but so is Gardner...
Chicago is a proper noun and should be capitalized.
Obvious hold (as obvious as the one on Wisky during the called back 3rd down coversion) on the Miller 5 yard run.
Love the boo guys. So old school.
