Rather than try to tackle any broad topic related to the OSU game, I wanted to ask the Board about McCurry's snaps in the OSU game and if there is anything broader to extrapolate from them.
Jake McCurry is a redshirt freshman walkon who I remember seeing score against Western earlier in the season and thinking, "what a nice moment for the kid". The only other memories I have of him this season are on ST, and every time I saw his name, I thought back to that TD.
In any event, McCurry was on the field for meaningful snaps against OSU on Saturday. I was not able to find snap counts, but I have to say I was surprised to see him out there at all. With DPJ, Collins, and Black as the no doubt starters, Perry having some success in the slot, Bell coming on late in the season, and even Martin starting to show signs, I figured McCurry would never see the field. Even Schoenle was ahead of him in my mind.
So my question (presented without any intended snark), is why was Jake McCurry in this game and is there anything to extrapolate from this? Is Jake better than I thought? Were we going 5-wide at times? I admit I was totally caught up in the moment for this game and couldn't process it the same way as usual. Assuming Jake got more than a couple of meaningful snaps, why do you think he got them and is there anything broader to take away from that?
