    If EZE is going to get 3 blocks and if the rest of the team blocks the way they did on that play every time, using the BraxCat is going to be fun as hell all year long.

    Unless they start letting him put some throws into the mix I'd rather not waste the plays. Even for Braxton that kind of run isn't really normal

    That was my point...sorta...

    I'm sure it'll stay in the playbook, but for sure there will be some wrinkles added as the offense gels and develops as the year progresses....

    OSU at VT was the most-watched opening weekend game ever on ESPN/ABC and third best regular-season game ever on ESPN.

    Exactly. How many times did they run the Braxcat with minimal gain before it had success? It will be the same way all year long. Unless he throws the ball no one will respect it, everyone will think it's a running play.

    buchtelgrad04 Pain is an opinion.

    How many defenses will stack the box the way Va Tech does? And just because people know it's coming, doesn't mean they can stop it.

    No. 1 Ohio State's 42–24 dismantling of Virginia Tech on Labor Day set an ESPN/ABC record for the most-watched opening weekend college football game ever on the family of networks with 10,585,000 viewers tuning in.

    The number easily topped the 9,888,000 viewers who tuned in for the Virginia Tech–Boise State game on Labor Day 2010

    Gotta mix it up, once he's lined up back there. Let him get back to what he does best.. Read option, maybe even some triple option. The straight QB runs every time he was in were frustrating at times, but really didn't show Ohio State's hand much. Teams KNOW what Braxton is capable of, though. So the element of surprise isn't as easy to accomplish.

    Brewer didn't really do anything special, but I was happy to see him make good decisions and, most importantly, not turn the ball over. For VT that's a big deal because we generally don't have have to put up crazy numbers to win games with our defense and he has a reputation of being reckless.

    After watching the game on DVR at home, I have to say that the defense looked better than I thought. It was a different vibe inside the stadium because we were all screaming nonstop, and it was a bit deflating giving up 3rd down conversions and long plays. However, you can tell from the tape that it looked more that OSU was just executing that well, and their talent was hard to stop. We're just not used to giving up 42 points but I'll grant an exception against an offense like that.

    Sam Rogers is a beast, and way more athletic than you would think at first. In high school he played QB on the football team, in addition to Linebacker, and was the Point Guard for the basketball team so he's a very versatile athlete with his size. Honestly, I'd rather make him our featured back than Coleman because he can make up for a lot of weak spots in our o-line with his power. Coleman is a good player, but more useful as a (poor man's) Darren Sproles type that adds another element to the offense rather than the focal point.

    Would love to know who is behind these ... professional or students? They're knocking it out of the park either way.

    Sick video. Although VT had a few nice plays that could have made their way in there... :lol:
