Twitter goes insane over James Franklin's playcalling with game on line

Ohio State at Penn State stream, keys, and White Out predictions

Ohio State at Penn State stream, keys, and White Out predictions

I saw the same thing.

It was similar to last year's 39-38 win over Penn State in Ohio Stadium when OSU came back from 15 points down in the fourth quarter. Trace McSorley had runs of 51 and 23 yards up the middle and KJ Hamler set a Penn State record with a 93-yard touchdown reception down the seam. "We didn't make plays when we needed to make plays". Dwayne Haskins has led the offense by throwing for 1,194 yards and 16 touchdowns with just one interceptions.

Ohio State's K.J. Hill dances into the end zone for the winning touchdown. His longest catch was for 19 yards, and this blew that out of the water.

And no, we're not talking about the team. Rather than starting with the ball on Penn State's half of the field, the Buckeyes started at their own 44. He wasn't the only one getting beat, but it was something I noticed on some of those delayed handoffs to the outside.

A fourth quarter miracle.

After yet another episode of what-the-hell-just-happened-out-there, Ohio State and Penn State and the 110,889 screamers who watched them in Beaver Stadium on Saturday night departed the premises in various stages of wooziness.

Ohio State is home to play IN next week. They are far too fast for that. It was frustrating to shut down the receivers repeatedly only to see McSorley tuck it and pick up the first down, or to run a quarterback draw when it seemed obvious and have it work.

Linebacker Koa Farmer then stopped Haskins for no gain on fourth-and-1 at the Penn State 48, giving the Lions the football. Some of that was dictated by crowding the line of scrimmage, shooting gaps on called run blitzes, and generally pushing around the OSU offensive line. It was the first game between top 10 teams in State College since 1999.

Rainfall totals from four to six inches, with isolated totals up to 10 inches, are possible through Friday from Barbados and St. On the forecast track, the center will move over the Lesser Antilles within the Tropical Storm Warning area Thursday night.

The bad field position didn't matter as Haskins hit J.K. Dobbins on a screen pass that turned into a 35-yard gain on the first play. Through the last two games, Dobbins has feasted on inside runs and we didn't get a good dose of that until the third quarter.

Ohio State is off to a 4-0 start with largely dominant performances in all four games. The drive stalled and resulted in a missed field goal after a penalty negated a made field goal (more on that in the next item). Both moves by the officials hurt each team.

A week after getting a ton of penalties against Tulane, the flags kept coming and almost cost the Buckeyes a crucial win. A total of three timeouts were called before the play, and Greg Schiano won the chess match when the Buckeyes baited McSorley, who set a school record with 461 yards of total offense, into handing the ball off to Sanders, who was stuffed behind the line by Young to complete the comeback.

Penn State receiver Juwan Johnson, who has had an issue with drops the first month of the season, made what could go down as one of the best catches of the season in the first half. It's the kind of catch you don't mind watching over and over, because it somehow gets more outrageous each time you watch it.

"The reality is that we've gone from being an average football team to a good football team to a great football team and worked really hard to do those things", Franklin said.

Penn State opened the season with a bit of a scare at home against Appalachian State. Pryor's was anything but.

Penn State called a timeout. Even so, with the receiver stumbling, he pulled nearly completely out of the contact, but the receiver stumbled and hit Pryor's shoulder pad with his helmet. "That's on me, nobody else". The play didn't just stand, but the referee announced that targeting was confirmed.

"It was the coaches' decision, and I agree with the call". But they don't have much a say based on the technicalities. Were there other things that really fried your bacon? "I love you to death".
