    I didn't check any official stats this morning. Would it be accurate to say that Devin was targeted four times last night: 2 TDs and 2 dropped TDs?

    And factual.

    Devin has been quite impressive for a few of the first 7 games, and I think he has very good potential as a future player and I just saw what a great play he made in the 2nd half for his 2nd TD. The kid really is one of the best big play guys the conference has this year.

    All that being said, the big drops in games are really starting to get out of hand. It's one thing to struggle to catch a few easy 5-10 yard passes and just chalk it up to a young kid looking upfield too quickly, but when you're dropping sure scores in a close game that are very wide open to the point of you walking into the EZ, that's a complete lack of concentration. The kid should have 9-10 TDs right now and he could've put the Indiana game out of reach earlier on.

    I'm not sure if he's just trying to make it look interesting cause otherwise it would be boring for him to have 4 catches that all went for TDs, or what, but for now I'll assume that it's a young kid still learning and growing into the game and that his concentration issues will eventually work their ways out. I do hope so because OSU will need those catches against TSUN. Maybe that's what he's saving it for.

    Certainly the most creative explanation for dropped passes I've seen to date.

    Man, to think he could have had 4 TDs and over 150+ receiving yards. Hes so talented. Great overall athleticsm and just a play maker. If he can consistently catch well like we all know he could perhaps be a 2nd, 3rd team All-American

    He has 6 TDs this year, but has dropped another 3. 1 vs UAB and now 2 vs Indiana. I think hes the big10's best big play WR right now.

    Some of these reporters are complete douche bags. Keep your head up & keep working hard, Devin.
