    :osu4: :oh: :io: :gobucks3: :gobucks4: :scum4:

    I know I'm pathetic, but I created and added more smilies. These were part of the bunch. We're now up to a clean 100.

    Someone better start some new threads and some chatter, we'll be up to 200 of the little blighters (the smilies that is) because of my otherwise idle energy.

    Hey Boro,

    Try highlighting a word and hitting B , I or U now. :wink: I was thrown for a couple loops, but was able to figure it all out and apply the changes. And my brain didn't catch fire more than once.

    -edit-

    Uh oh, I think I broke the smilies list where you can click on one to add it... Hrmm.

    Clarity think you could do:

    "Herbie for President"

    something about tbdbitl

    "woody rules"

    "Go Tressel Vessel" or "Join Tressel's Vessel"

    anything negative towards Tenn Cheat

    somthing positive about Brutus

    Something positive about the Shoe

    anything one might put on a license plate... etc

    (just some thoughts, I'll get more later i'm sure)...

    C-dog,

    Think you can use any of the above ideas? I'm sure you're busy with other things, no rush...

    You know, I didn't understand until just now that those were suggestions for his little sign.

    The only thing is the space is severely limited, but I think there's more fun we can have with it. I might try and play with more variations tonight.

    Just my .02 here but I like the current setup with the different names based on number of posts, the member ID and everything else.

    I think this is going to be another excellent Buckeye information site and message board, kudos to Clarity, Coach, Hubbard and anyone else I may have overlooked.

    Offensive Line Scheme #2

    O-Line Schemes: Zone Blocking vs. Drive Blocking
    written by osugrad21 and exhawg (6/7/2004)

    The main difference between Drive blocking and Zone blocking is that with Drive blocking you are trying to open a hole in a specific place and with Zone blocking you are putting bodies on bodies and let the running back find the whole. The zone allows a cutback runner the opportunity to slash his way through whatever seam may appear. However, the Drive blocking scheme does not allow for this type of creativity. The back must hit the designated hole in order for the play to work successfully.

    Zone Blocking-

    There are 2 type of Zone blocking schemes but they both revolve around the same rules.

    • If you are covered you are responsible for the man on you.
    • If you aren’t covered you double team with the next person play side

    [​IMG]

    In the above diagram you can see how these rules apply to an inside zone scheme against a basic 4-3 Under defense, and a 3-4 defense. The TE is responsible for the man on or outside of him. The RT is responsible for the man on him. Against the 3-4, the RG isn’t covered so he double teams the end up to the MLB. Depending what the MLB does this could be a long double team or not more than a jab and go. The center and LG are the same as the previous 2 but they are doubling to the PLB (we called the second MLB Peg in college so bear with me). Against the 3-4 The LT is responsible for making sure that the backside end doesn’t cross his face. Driving him off the ball is nice but he HAS it cut him off a the very least. Against the Under the LT steps inside and works his way up to the WLB. The outside man on the back side is either the responsibility of the FB, or a WR in motion. Another way to handle that is to have the QB boot out to that side after the hand off. The outside man is responsible for contain so if he starts making the play on the hand off you can burn him with a naked.

    The RB’s rule on an inside zone is to key on the front side guard. If he is covered go to the opposite side of where his man goes. In both of the above diagrams the man that the RG is blocking is outside him so the RB will start looking for a hole at the right side A gap. If the man over the RG stunts inside then the RB is taught to plug in the front side B gap to outside.

    The goal of the O-line is to double the D-line into the LB’s and make them declare their gap responsibility. When done properly, the LB can’t make the correct choice because the RB can go to the opposite gap than the one the LB chooses and run free into the secondary. On any handoff, the defense has two players that the offense cannotaccount for, so it is up to the RB to make the safety miss.

    The second type of Zone scheme is Outside Zone. This follows the same rules as inside zone but rather than try to push the defense up the field the offense tries to get the edge on the D and cut them off laterally.

    [​IMG]

    The Outside zone isn’t extremely effective out of a normal alignment so my diagram is for double TE, which in my opinion, is the best formation for the scheme. This play will usually be called with a direction audible so that the play can go to whichever side looks like it will be easier to block.

    You can see the rules stay the same everyone is just moving faster play side. The biggest difference is on the backside the O-line has to do whatever they can to cut off backside pursuit. The play has the best chance of busting out the gate if one of the backside linemen can make it up to the safety. Everyone to the backside is responsible for line cutoff if the center has free reign to cut block the defender for which they are responsible. This should at least slow them down enough that they can’t make the play. The last man on the outside isn’t blocked and he should have no chance to make the play unless the RB screws up or he is Bobby Carpenter.

    One Possible change to the scheme that can be done against the Under would call for the TE to block down on the 5 technique(Head Up Alignment) over the LT. The LT will wrap around the TE (Fold Block) and pick up the WLB. The LG would have the option to wrap over the top as well or he could go inside the TE’s block.

    Drive Blocking-

    Drive Blocking schemes rely on a totally different set of rules.

    • The front side blocks down
      • If you have a man on you drive him off the ball
      • If you don’t have a man on you block down on the first man inside
    • Someone from the backside pulls
    • The RB hits the hole hard

    [​IMG]

    These rules are a good in theory but not the most accurate in practice. As you can see in the above diagrams of the Power play not everyone follows the rules every time. That’s why you have blocking calls. No matter how you block the scheme, everyone needs to be on the right page. Unlike Zone schemes that work from the front side to the backside, drive schemes work from the center out. The center has to decide whom he needs to block and make a call to let everyone know this. The best example of this is against the 3-4. Even though the center has a man over him, he and the LT have to seal off two guys on the backside. Since there is a man head up on the LT and a man outside the center need to come all the way to the man over the LT. The LT will jam the end over him to help the center but immediately turns his attention to the WLB outside. If the WLB comes upfield the LT peals off and picks him up. If the WLB drops then the LT and center will double the end to the WLB.

    Power means that the FB is responsible for kicking out the end man on the line and the backside guard pulls around and picks up the front side LB. Power is always designed to go up inside so the FB has to get a good kick out on his man or it won’t work well.

    The other main Drive blocking play is Counter.

    [​IMG]

    The Counter is much like Power except that the pulling guard is responsible for kicking the end man on the line. The backside tackle pulls and cuts inside the kickout block for the front side LB and the FB has to skim any backside pursuit off the butt of the pulling tackle. Counter also relies on misdirection to fool the LB’s into flowing the wrong way and thus getting blocked easier. The RB takes his first two steps like he was running an inside zone play to the left (in the above diagram) then cuts back to the right and latches on to the hip of the tackle. In many circumstances the end man on the line is going to follow the TE on his down block so there won’t be any room for the guard to kick. In this case the guard logs (run around and seal the man inside) the end man. The pulling tackle has to read this and wrap around the guards block to pick up his man.

    QB Mark Sanchez

    Nutty -[​IMG][​IMG] "Sanchez is an excellent prospect and will give the Buckeyes a serious look but our offense and distance from home will be too much to overcome. Ryan Williams being on board already helps but isn't enough. Texas or USC is his likely school of choice."

    86 -[​IMG][​IMG] "Mark had a positive visit in C-bus and he is friends & teammates with Buckeye verbal Ryan Williams. But USC is the hometown team and Bob Johnson who is Sanchez's HS coach is a big USC supporter. Petey doesn't even need the plane to recruit Mark. USC is a big favorite."

    RB Maurice Wells

    Nutty -[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] "Top running backs around the country should be drooling to come to Ohio State. There will be stiff competition from Georgia Tech and USC but Wells' family most likely wins out in the end and there will be another Maurice in the Buckeye backfield.

    86 -[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] "The main competition for the Bucks is GTech. Plusses in GTech's favor include MoW having family in the Atlanta area, his HS coach is the son of a GTech coach and teammate Marvin Sapp is leaning towards GTech. But most of MoW's mother's family lives in the C-bus area and his father's family lives in Michigan which will be a big factor in leading MoW to tOSU. Besides who wouldn't want to be a star tailback in the Shoe??"

    RB Mikell Simpson

    Nutty -[​IMG] "Early playing time seems to be a very important factor for Simpson and that alone will make other schools a lot more attractive with guys like Antonio Pittman, Dennis Kennedy, and Erik Haw already in the mix. Don't look for Simpson in Columbus. Penn State could be a likely destination."

    86 -[​IMG][​IMG] "Mikell has expressed casual interest in tOSU and seems to be wide open. If we can secure an on campus visit there is a chance to sway him to the Buckeyes. But Coach Daniels has alot of work to do."

    Derrick Williams

    Nutty -[​IMG] "Most of the top schools in the country will be fighting to land Williams. Our passing woes eliminate us from consideration. Derrick probably stays somewhere down south. Williams is an unbelievable athlet we'll be watching on Sundays in a few years."

    86 -[​IMG] "tOSU will have a tough time securing this big time athlete but they have done a good job recruiting Maryland and he would have a chance to be a featured receiver in Columbus. It is not likely but again if we get a campus visit there is a remote chance Derrick could be a Buckeye."

    WR Selwyn Lymon

    Nutty -[​IMG][​IMG] "Getting a kid on campus always increases our chances and Lymon was supposed to be in Columbus for the senior advanced camp. I think he ends up at Purdue but if Zwick or Smith has a big year and Lymon enjoys his visit to Ohio State you just never know."

    86 -[​IMG][​IMG] "Selwyn is one of Purdue's top recruiting targets and will be very difficult to pull away from the Boilermakers. But his camp visit is a good sign and it shows his interest in the Buckeyes. It seems like the Buckeye coaches have targeted Selwyn as WR they want in this class."

    OL Kevin Bemoll

    Nutty -[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] "With his teammate Ryan Williams already committed to the Buckeyes and the fact Bemoll is visiting with him in July, our chances are decent. I think he ends up at Florida because he has family in the Sunshine State but we should be in it for a while."

    86 -[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] "He seems to like Florida but the tie in with his best friend (Ryan Williams) committing to tOSU will be a strong factor in the Buckeyes favor. With a good visit in July and two friends dreaming of what it would be like to play at the next level together, Bemoll could end up being a Buckeye."

    OL Dan Doering

    Nutty -[​IMG][​IMG] "Doering really enjoyed his visit to Columbus, complete with seeing a Buckeye jersey with his name on the back hanging from a locker. We are one of the many schools recruiting him and have a chance, albeit a small one." Doering probably ends up a Hawkeye

    86 -[​IMG][​IMG] "He had a good visit and he has a cousin who attends tOSU. The key seems to be whether we can build on this recent momentum by securing one of his remaining official visits. But he has been to Iowa 5 times already and he seems to like ND. They seem like the logical choices."

    DT Callahan Bright

    Nutty -[​IMG] "Bright is a beast and is easily one of the more impressive lineman I've seen on film this year. He lists us as one of his favorites but early on in the process Bright mentioned he wanted to play in warm weather. We should be attractive to any d-lineman across the country but depth and the fact it gets a little chilly in Columbus from time to time doesn't help our cause."

    86 -[​IMG] "He is one of the top Dlinemen in the country and could name his school if he qualifies. Early indications lead to a Miami lean."

    DE Melvin Alaeze

    Nutty -[​IMG][​IMG] "Alaeze has offers from just about everyone, including the Buckeyes. He currently does not list any favorites but the Buckeyes were on his list early on. Melvin is one of the best looking DE prospects I've seen on film this year with unbelievable size and quickness. Hopefully we can be one of the lucky 5 to get a visit."

    86 -[​IMG][​IMG] "We appear to have slipped with Melvin and our depth could hurt us with him. USC could be a factor but it is too early to say where he is leaning. The key is to get a visit."

    LB Brian Cushing

    Nutty -[​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG] "We've been one of Cushing's favorites for a while now but teams like Florida State and Virginia are making strong pitches. Cushing is supposed to visit Columbus some time this summer and that should help us. Gotta love a LB with safety speed. Hopefully Hazell can work some magic."

    86 -[​IMG][​IMG] "He is up to 50 offers and he has a sub 4 shuttle time. Incredible athlete who has the ability to play safety but has a LB body. Hopefully a visit with AJ Hawk, Carpenter etc. al could sway him to the Bucks but I sense Virginia and USC will be the teams to beat."

    LB/S Freddie Lenix

    Nutty -[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] "Where else would a top Glenville prospect end up with Coach Tressel at the helm? When he gets his offer, Lenix - Buckeye!"

    86 -[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] "He will be offered and will choose tOSU. He might cause us moments of doubts with the talk of the Gators but the Glenville gang will make sure he is a Buckeye. Paint the endzones!!"

    DL Curtis Smith

    Nutty -[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] "If he qualifies and is offered - Buckeye! He is from Glenville after all."

    86 -[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] "Assuming he qualifies and is offered he will be a Buckeye. Is there a doubt??"

    WR Brian Hartline

    Nutty -[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] "Hartline has made it clear...if he's offered he's coming to Ohio State. Just a matter or time, IMO."

    86 -[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] "PAINT THE ENDZONES-He is a Buckeye to the core and has done all the right things this recruiting season. If he is offered (and I believe he will be) then he will be a Buckeye."

    LB Rico McCoy

    Nutty -[​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG] "McCoy is one of the better linebackers I've seen on film this year. Very athletic and hits like a truck. Miami and Ohio State were his co-leaders early on. The Canes will be tough to beat but it's likely he will make an official here and we could use a LB or two. McCoy would be a great get."

    86 -[​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG] "He seems to like the "flash" of the Canes which could hurt the Buckeyes chances. But tOSU was on him early and has recruited his state very hard which will help their chances. But in the end I think he is a Cane."

    CB/RB Justin King

    Nutty -[​IMG][​IMG] "Being recruited by just about everyone, King is probably a scUM lean right now. He prefers CB but at this point the Buckeyes want him as a RB. He will be at the senior advanced camp and hopefully likes what he sees. What corner wouldn't want to go to school at Ohio State? I suppose we'll have to tell him he can play corner if we want a more realistic shot at him. scUM and Penn State seem more likely right now."

    86 -[​IMG][​IMG] "This year's top shut down corner. scUM and PSU have him as their no. 1 recruiting targets and both desperatly need a top flight athlete at CB. King's step-dad played for Joe Paterno which will help PSU's case. tOSU seems to be hurting themselves by recruiting King as a RB, he prefers CB. But even if tOSU offers him as a CB it seems unlikely that he will spurn either PSU or scUM for the Buckeyes."

    DB Adam Myers-White

    Nutty-[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] "I suspect AMW will end up at Ohio State to play with the Underwood brothers but there is talk he likes scUM and Notre Dame so it may be a little early to paint the endzones. We are loaded in the secondary but AMW would be another excellent addition. In the end AMW stays home and becomes a Buckeye."

    86 -[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] "AMW wants to take all his visits so tOSU will have to sweat out the recruiting process. The ability to play earlier at other schools could sway him but in the end the allure of playing with his hometown team and friends will be make him a Buckeye."

    DB Shawn Oatis

    Nutty -[​IMG]
    [​IMG] "Oatis has liked Notre Dame and Ohio State for a while. I think the depth in our secondary hurts our cause unless he wants to be a RB. He's a big hitter from his safety position and is a nice RB prospect. I think he ends up playing for the Domers."

    86 -[​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG] "He has ND and tOSU as co-favorites and it appears like he would like to leave California. ND is offering him earlier playing time but tOSU is offering him a chance to win sooner and good track record to the next level. I think he goes to ND in the end but tOSU should make it a battle."

    ATH Alex Daniels

    Nutty -[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] "In the end the Buckeyes have just as much to offer as Oklahoma and the other schools Alex is high on, and Ohio State is right in his backyard."

    86 -[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] "OU seems to be the main competition. They have done a good job recruiting him and his current teammate Keith Massey. But in the end Alex should choose the Bucks, his hometown team."

    OL Ronnie Wilson

    Nutty -[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] "HH reports Wilson has an offer and is really high on the Buckeyes and may commit. It's a long time between now and signing day and other schools will make their pitch. It looks good right now."

    86 -[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] "HH feels Ronnie is leaning toward the Buckeyes but he does have a coach that is an ex-Gator. So if things don't work out with tOSU he could be headed to Florida."

    QB Rob Schoenhoft

    Nutty -[​IMG][​IMG] "People are all over the board on Schoenhoft but it may not matter as Rob seems to be leaning to scUM. I wasn't overly impressed with his video but there must be something there to garner so many offers and an Elite 11 invite. I think he ends up at Ann Arbor."

    86 -[​IMG][​IMG] "In spite of a 37% completion percentage last season Rob has earned some big time offers including tOSU and scUM. He has favored scUM for awhile but their depth chart appeared to scare him but that seems to have dissapted and he is probably headed to tsun."

    FB Matt Clapp
    Nutty -[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] "We've been in on him for a while and he even attended a Fiesta Bowl practice last year. He could be an H-back for us and we could use him as a hammer late in the game to run clock. If Clapp gets an offer I think he probably ends up coming here."

    86 -[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] "Assuming he has camped with us he probably has a tOSU offer. He built a relationship with the coaches at the Fiesta Bowl which could lead to him becoming a Buckeye. tOSU has stiff competition from Oklahoma and the homestate Arizona teams. It should be a good battle."

    WR Brian Robiskie

    Nutty -[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] "With Robiskie's father being an NFL coach you'd have to assume he knows the game. He has good size and great hands. Rumor has it if he runs a good 40 he'll probably get a Buckeye offer. I think if he gets one he accepts."

    86 -[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] "Brian is big and strong with good receiving skills. If he shows enough speed he could be a Buckeye. If not he could be a Nittany Lion."

    all right... i was over on Grassy, and yet again they are talking of the 'robbery' in OT... i will once and for all, prove that even IF the call was wrong (which IMHO, is not true) the Canes would never have been in the Game without the HORRIBLE officiating... the 'bad call' scoring indicates which team the call favors...

    Miami won the toss and differed... the opening kickoff was downed in the endzone... on the ensuing 1st and 10, Ohio State was penalized 5 yards for too many men in the huddle...

    >> OSU) 1st and 15: Vance comes in motion to the left, the hand off goes to MoC, who is tackled for a 2 yard loss...
    >> OSU) 2nd and 17: Krenzel drops back to pass, but immediately pulls the ball down and takes off and runs for 11 yards... at first i thought the Miami left end might have jumped the gun, but he was not off sides
    >> OSU) 3rd and 6: Krenzel drops back to pass, but apparantly no one can get clear of the coverage... eventually, Krenzel scrambles to his right, and throws the ball out of bounds... Hartsock very nearly held #95, but the play was clean...

    so far, so good... no missed calls...

    Groom booms a BEAUTIFUL punt, which is downed at the Miami 20 by Will Allen...

    >> UM) 1st and 10: Dorsey drops back to pass, but the UM O-line has sorely underestimated Will Smith's speed, and Dorsey is knocked down for a 3 yard loss... Dorsey got a nice spot on the play; he was down on the 16, but the officials put the ball on the 17...
    >> UM) 2nd and 13: Dorsey hands off left to McGahee, but Wilhelm reads it perfectly, and busts the play up in the backfield for a 2 yard loss... Wilhelm 'breaks the diamond' over his knee...
    Dorsey is forced to call timeout, as the OSU D has him confused... it appears that the ball is snapped a split second before the whistle, but i can let that slide...
    >> UM) 3rd and 15: Gamble attempts to jam Andre Johnson, but is unsuccessful... Johnson catches Dorsey's pass, and after breaking tackle attempts by Nickey and Grant, is finally hauled down by a gang of Buckeyes, most notably Will Smith... notable because Smith was just 8 yards deep in the backfield, yet manages to get 27 yards downfield in about 2 seconds... Miami first down...

    >> UM) 1st and 10: Dorsey pump fakes a short route, then throws a deep fade to Ethenic Sands... the ball goes out of bounds, presumably on purpose, because Donny Nickey has Sands covered like a blanket...
    >> UM) 2nd and 10: McGahee gets the ball on a delay/draw, and picks up 5 yards...
    >> UM) 3rd and 5: Andre Johnson runs Gamble off, and catches a 5 yard pass, but manages to pick up about 6 more yards before Gamble can make the stop...
    Miami first down...

    >> UM) 1st and 10: play action right to McGahee, which, if WM had actually gotten the ball, may have gone for BIG yardage... instead, the OSU D is not fooled, and Dorsey is sacked for a 6 yard loss by Kenny Peterson... again, there is roughly a 1 yard discrepancy in where Dorsey hit the turf, and where the ball is spotted... again, no biggie, right?
    >> UM) 2nd and 15: play action, quick pass left complete to Roscoe Parrish for 4 yards, but Gamble and Robert Reynolds tackle him in a hurry...
    >> UM) 3rd and 11: short pass right complete to Kellen Winslow, who fights for 6 yards, down to the OSU 44...
    >> UM) 4th and 4: Freddy Capshaw's punt is downed on the 3-inch line, and the Buckeye faithful want a touchback... no such luck, the call is a good one...

    >> OSU) 1st and 10: Krenzel keeps it for 4 yards...
    >> OSU) 2nd and 7: Clarett gets the hand off and goes right for about 4 yards... the entire Miami defense tackles him...
    >> OSU) 3rd and 3:Krenzel throws to Clarett on a wheel route to the right, but Clarett is blatantly held by DJ Williams... ** THIS IS THE FIRST BAD CALL OF THE GAME ** if the refs call holding, it's 1st and 10 at the 13, if they call PI (the ball was in the air) it's 1st and 10 at the 23, if Clarett catches the ball, it's 1st and 10 wherever he is downed... instead, it's 4th and 3 at the 8...
    >> OSU) 4th and 3: Groom hits another great punt, which is fair caught at the Miami 48 yard line...

    ** Bad Call Recap: the refs miss a holding/PI penalty, which costs the Buckeyes posession of the ball, and gives the Canes great field position. Bad Call Score: Canes 1, Buckeyes 0 **

    >> UM) 1st and 10: Dorsey is 4 for 5 for 41 yards so far, but half of those yards came on one play... McGahee gets the hand off right, but Mike Doss wraps him up for no gain... this play marks the third time that the Canes gain a yard on the Official's spot...
    >> UM) 2nd and 9: play action to McGahee. Robert Reynolds allows Kellen Winslow to release and blitzes from Dorsey's left. Willis McGahee holds Reynolds, but is not called for it, which allows Dorsey the time to throw the completion to a wide open Winslow... ** THIS IS THE SECOND BAD CALL OF THE GAME ** if the refs correctly call holding, Miami is looking at 2nd and 19 from their own 39... instead, Miami has the ball 1st and 10 at the Ohio State 24... a 37 yard swing...

    >> UM) 1st and 10: McGahee gets the hand off and is tackled immediately for a 2 yard loss... Kenny Peterson is the first to arrive... Winslow and Will Smith get in a helmet slapping match; no penalties are levied... Miami calls time out...
    >> UM) 2nd and 12: Dorsey throws the ball complete out of bounds to Andre Johnson... Perterson is BLATANTLY held on the play, yet no flag is thrown... ** THIS IS THE THIRD BAD CALL IN THE GAME ** the Canes should have the ball 2nd and 22 from the 36, but instead are looking at 3rd and 12 from the 26... 10 more free yards for the Canes...
    >> UM) 3rd and 12: Nickey blitzes straight up the middle... Dorsey eludes Nickey, and passes complete to Roscoe Parrish in the very spot the Nickey would have been covering, had he not blitzed... Touchdown Canes... extra point is good...

    ** Bad Call Recap: the Canes are greatly aided by two missed calls by the refs in this 5 play, 52 yard drive, not to mention the fact that the Canes would not have even HAD the ball if the refs had done their job on Ohio State's preceeding possession... the Canes also benefitted in more than just the 47 yards they gained by the missed calls, but in the fact that if Holding is properly called on 2nd and 22, Nickey would never have blitzed... three bad calls DIRECTLY contributed to Miami's first TD... Bad Call Score: Canes 3, Buckeyes 0 **

    Sievers kicks the ball off three yards deep into the Endzone... Maurice Hall runs the kickoff back to the 15... 1st and 10, Buckeyes...

    >> OSU) 1st and 10: Krenzel fakes the handoff to Clarett, and after rolling to his right, launches the ball 50 yards down field for Chris Vance... #22, Jennings, knocks Vance down while the ball is in the air, and Sean Taylor makes a spectacular Interception... Miami ball at the Miami 35 yard line... ** THIS IS THE FOURTH BAD CALL IN THE GAME ** i don't care if Jennings' back was to Vance, or if Jennings was 'playing the ball,' when you knock the reciever to the ground as the ball is in the air, it's PI... no two ways about it...

    ** Bad Call Recap: blatant pass interference results in a Miami interception... if the refs get the call correct, Ohio State is looking at a 1st and 10 from their own 30 yard line... instead, it's Miami, 1st and 10, on the Miami 35 yard line... Bad Call Score: Canes 4, Buckeyes 0 **
    (i'm gonna post this now, and edit it, in case anything happens)
    >> UM) 1st and 10:

    -all right... i posted the second quarter in my 'edit' but when i clicked 'submit changes,' the 2nd quarter portion disappeared... suffice to say that the Officials did a fairly good job, and there were no Blatant Bad Calls either way... i'm a bit frustrated after losing several hours worth of work, so i'm going to come back to this later...
