Hall, Decker, HeuermanMillerStarted 2nd half with a safe zone read, but Braxton either predetermined to hand it off or made the wrong read, and the unblocked read defender tackled Hall for a loss. Would have been an easy gain if Brax kept. We also had 1 on 1 coverage to the field side (I think Spencer is there off camera), but we did not challenge it. "+1" to Mewhort, Norwell, Boren, Hall, Decker, Heuerman - good push all across line, would have been a nice gain if Brax had made correct read3-4ish
14 : 27OSU 24211113Shotgun Left/AcePA Pass*Package Play* IZR w/ X flash screenDevin Smith5Miller, SmithVery interesting play here. Appears to be a packaged play where the line and Hall run IZ, while Fields and Devin run a quick WR screen. Braxton sees 2 on 2 on the outside with the corner playing soft, so he chooses the quick WR screen. It's a good choice and they pick up 5 yards. "+1" to Brax, Devin - accurate throw and what looks like a good read on the packaged play, catch and spun up field for an extra couple of yards2Cover 13-4ish/4-3 with Viper4Dead On

HallDecker, MillerUgly...can't tell much about the pass routes from limited camera angle. Heuerman ran an "okie" or an small drag that he stops and reverses field towards the sideline. Philly appears to run some sort of In or Curl. Line has good protection except for Decker. Decker gets beat on a pure speed rush that results in a strip sack. Thankfully Decker falls on the fumble.-3 for Decker - got destroyed off the edge allowing his man to strip sack Braxton, thankfully recovered the fumble... -1 for Braxton - held the ball slightly too long on a quick pass play, needs to hold onto the ball when hit3-4ish/4-3 with Viper4

Mostly good blocking on the line, though Boren got stood up a bit. Good solid pickup. "+1" to Miller - correct read on the keep, got upfield for 5, +1 Mewhort, Norwell, Hall for good run push. Boren got stood up but kept his man at bay, Heuerman wasn't a big factor. +1 to Chris Fields for an excellent block on his DB3/4/2013
9 : 50OSU 1425113Shotgun Quads Left (TE inelligible left)Run*Package Play* IZ (no read) w/ X flash screenHall6 (4 after contact)J. HallM. HallInteresting play here that we get a good gain out of, but I think that Braxton does not make the optimal choice here. We have 3 WRs to the left with the TE also on the line left. This gives us quads left, but the TE is not an elligible receiver. UB's DBs are visibly confused how to respond to this and only have 2 players within 8 yards of our trio of WRs. Devin steps back for a quick screen and the other 2 WRs set up to block for him. It appears that Devin could have easily picked up 5+ yards. Instead Braxton hands off to Hall who finds a crease and should be stopped for a 2 yard gain. He manages to break that tackle and get out of the mess before stumbling forward for a 6 yard gain and a first down. A successful play due to Hall, but I think the screen would have been the wiser read. "+2" Hall for breaking what looked like a sure tackle in the hole and turning a meh play into a nice first down3/4/2013
9 : 32OSU 20110113Pistol Trips Right (2 WR and TE right, TE on line) / Trey RightPA Pass (Scramble/Sack)PA rollout pass to the right, brokenMiller-2Heuerman, DeckerA simple PA pass rollout to the right that goes wrong. Decker steps left with the rest of the OL, then has to reach right to stop his rush. He shoves the lineman to his right, apparently expecting Heuerman to be there and pick him up. Oops. Heuerman did not step left with the other lineman and directly attacked OLB Mack (and did an admirable job). Mack shifted over right before the snap so it's possible that Decker did not see him. Either Decker or Heuerman was in the wrong here, as it resulted in a D lineman running right at Braxton after the PA fake. Braxton tries to make the best of it and reverses field, rolling out to the backside of the play. He has a lot of grass in front of him and just one defender to beat, but his leg cramps up just as he is about to cut, so he falls for a 2 yard loss. Ugh.3 - 44

Hall, Boren, Mewhort, HeuermanNorwellKenny G comes in for Braxton who went off with a cramp. No read on this play, it's a give all the way. Heuerman, lined up in the backfield like a FB, pulls and kicks out the unsuspecting DE. OL does a pretty good job getting hats on guys in the second level, except for Norwell who falls down and whiffs on his LB. This LB combines with a safety to make the tackle for a 4 yard gain. The safety was down in the box and simply unaccounted for. UB was likely keying on the run as this was the first play that Kenny G came in for. Decent run that could have gone for more if Norwell gets a piece of his LB.3 - 4
8 : 28OSU 2238112Shotgun Right OpenPass (Penalty Defense - Hands to the face)Pass of some kind that became a sack/fumble but was negated by penaltyMiller15 - thanks to penaltyJ. HallMillerBraxton back in. Another ugly play. Let's see what went wrong.Protection starts out okay. Decker starts out looking for the defender in the slot to come on a blitz, but that defender alters his course and chases Hall on his route out of the backfield. Seeing no danger coming from the outside, Decker turns inwards to "sauce the ribs" and help Hall. Meanwhile, Mewhort is doing okay at forcing his man upfield. Norwell is getting pushed back by Mack but manages to keep Mack in front of him. That is, until Mack grabs hold of Norwell's facemask and encourages Norwell to take a good look at the skies above the Shoe. Mack is flagged appropriately for this penalty, and the rest of this play would not have happened without Mack's illegal rush.With a good handle on Norwell's face, Mack is able to drive him back into Miller. This forces Braxton to scramble to his right. Unfortunately, remember that slot defender who stopped his blitz to pick up Hall? Well he decided to be tricky and come back with a delayed blitz, now coming back free right at the scrambling Miller. Braxton, being his usual self, makes this guy miss, but Mack has finally let go of Norwell's facemask and catches him from the side.He slams Braxton down on backwards upon himself, causing Braxton to lose the ball as he slams into Mack's helmet. I can't blame Braxton for trying to make something happen, but he probably should have tried to throw it away and he definitely can't fumble. Keep in mind that Mack was only in the backfield because he used illegal hands to the face to disengage from Norwell, so this play isn't perhaps as horrible as it seemed. I can't really blame Decker for not picking up the delayed blitz after 4 seconds, so I will just have to give credit to the defense there.Delayed Nickel blitz?3 - 4
7 : 54OSU 37110113Shotgun Trio Right / 1 WR left 2 WR right TE on line rightRunIZ Read - KeepMiller-3Mewhort, Boren Vannett, M. Hal, DeckerSimple IZR. By playing their 3-4 ends inside the tackles, this play is much harder to execute than against a standard 4 - 3. The read defender heads towards Hall, giving Miller a "keep" key. He does so, but the DE does an excellent job of diving back and getting ahold of Miller before he can get anywhere. I wouldn't mark this down as a bad play by Braxton, but rather a great play by the DE and a result of having to read a player much closer to the mesh point than normal.3 - 3 - 5
7 : 20OSU 34213113Pistol Trio Right / 1 WR left 2 WR right TE on line rightRunDave RightHall12 (11 after contact)J. Hal, Decker, Norwell, Mewhort, Boren, VannettEveryone's favorite, "Dave" is still with us! The DE (that just blew up the IZR in part thanks to being lined up inside of Decker) gets demolished and washed down the line by Decker, leaving a big hole for Norwell to pull into, where he nicely picks up the LB. Hall maybe should have cut right off the block instead of left, but he makes his choice work as he runs right by a diving LB (who was probably overpursuing because he thought Hall would hit the other hole) and then making his way to the second level for a pickup of 12.3 - 3 - 5
6 : 48OSU 4631113Pistol Twins Rt TE Wing RtRunDave RightHall2Vannett, Decker, M. Hall, BorenSlightly different formation, essentially the same play. If it works keep running it, right? This time the DE is lined up outside shade on Decker, so Vannet, from a FBish alignment, kicks out the DE while Norwell pulls through. It's not as big of a hole, but it's plenty clean enough for Hall to squeeze through for the first down.
6 : 20OSU 48110113Shotgun Trips Left (2 WR & TE split left, 1 WR split right)PassSwing pass rightHall1In case you haven't noticed yet, Mack is a beast. Here Heuerman makes a pretty decent attempt at blocking him in open space, but Mack is too much. Heuerman appears to get Mack somewhat sealed to the outside, so Hall attempt to cut inside the block. Unfortunately, Mack sheds the block just as Hall gets there, resulting just a 1 yard gain instead of 5 or so. I did not give Heuerman a minus here, as it's a tough matchup and he held his own.negative 5 (swing pass)3 - 3 - 54Dead On
5 : 37OSU 4929113Shotgun Trio Rt (2 WR split, TE on line, 1 WR split left)PA Pass turned to Scramble Run*Package Play* - IZR with a 5 yard hitch to Devin on the backside...turned into a successful Braxton scrambleMiller15MillerAnother interesting packaged play. The line blocks IZR. Braxton identified the corner playing well off of Devin so he chose to run the quick hitch. After the PA fake, however, the unblocked read end jumped up to block the quick pass, so Braxton wisely pulled it down and scrambled for the open space himself, picking up 15 yards before cramping up again. A wise choice.3 - 45
5 : 17UB36110113Pistol Twins Left, TE in backfield behind LTRunDave LeftHall3M. HallDave left, just like the Dave play a few back except that Hall is pulling this time. The line does fine but Hall does not pull through the hole fast enough, so Hall runs into the back of him before the hole is cleared. Hall falls forward for a few yards, but if Hall had pulled through quicker it could have been a bigger gain.3 - 4
4 : 45UB 3327113Shotgun RightRunIZR - KeepGuiton6GuitonIZR, defense shows no respect for Guiton and he correctly pulls it and gets good yardage. Somehow Mack, the opposite OLB, makes the play. Dude is a monster.3 - 4
4 : 11UB 2731113Pistol Left, TE wing leftRunDave LeftBall5BallDave left, the DE is lined up tight, so Heuerman attempts to log him and seal him inside instead of kick him out. Hall pulls around outside of this block and does a decent job at falling on a LB coming around the edge, taking him out of the play. The defense blitzed a slot defender, so Ball has no choice but to head right into the line. The hole is a bit of a mess but there are hats on hats, so Ball stumbles his way forward for about 5 yards.Slot blitzEither 3 - 4 or 3 - 3 -5 depending on what you consider the slot man
3 : 59UB 23110113Pistol Left, TE wing leftRunDave LeftBall2Heuerman, M. HallThey ran hurry-up and got up to the line and ran the same play again. Heuerman seemed unsure whether to kick out or log the DE that was tight on the line. He eventually gets inside and attempt to kick him out. At this point, Hall is already there and attempts to pull around Heuerman instead of inside him. Ball hits the hole inside Heuerman and is met by the LB who Hall was supposed to pick up.3 - 4
3 : 22UB 2128113Pistol Right, TE wing RTPA PassPA Pass to wide open Fields on corner routeGuiton to Fields21GuitonPA Pass, Fields in the slot ran a corner route and nobody covered him. Touchdown Buckeyes. It doesn't get easier than that. From the limited camera angles, it looked like the outside receiver ran a post, causing the deep corner to follow him and vacating his deep quarter zone. It appears he was supposed to hand off the post to the safety and stay with the corner route. Guiton put the ball on the money and took advantage of the busted coverage.21Cover 4?Usual 3 - 4 / 3-3-5 hyrbrid6Dead On
