    Of 43 net yards rushing for Indiana, 21 of them came bench vs. bench on the last possession of the game.

    And Nebraska gave up 80 yds rushing to brad smith ON ONE PLAY.

    Guess who's gonna be back at number one in the Rushing D category. :biggrin:

    And guess what type of team we play this week? We will be tested against Minny. Time for our D to make another statement.

    Troy Smith

    It seems like every year the Buckeyes offense finally get things rolling after playing Indiana. Is it me, or does Troy Smith ever pitch the ball on an option? I thought there were a few opportunities this afternoon he could of swung it out to pitman for a bigger gain.

    scarletngrey11 All right, all right, all right.

    I saw two plays where Troy might have been better served to pitch it, and one of em went for six.

    I think of the qb option as a form of qb draw in our offense. It helps Smith find room because the defense also has to play the pitch man. I think alot of him not pitch is designed IMO

    Probably true and a good point.

    QBs are coached to hold the ball until a direct threat impedes them. Depending on who is left unblocked as the primary read, Smith will usually keep the ball. It seemed like IU was playing the pitch with the OLB and relying on the DE to handle QB responsibility...easy read there.

    His 23 yarder was a thing of beauty.

    I think we need to give props on both scheme and execution for the shotgun option play.

    On both TD's I called it before they lined up.

    I'm sure the defense knows their tendencies too, but today it didn't matter.

    You might say it was b/c they were facing inferior talent, but this is a play they've executed all year - even against better defenses (e.g. Iowa).

    My prediction - JT will have someking of wrinkle off of this play / formation for the scUM game.

    If osu and wisconsin both run the table the remainder of the season and have identical Big Ten records, will they win the tie breaker on overall record?
