Week 8: Ohio State

As the week came to an end, the spread had climbed to 18 points, but the forecast had a high chance of rain, which can at times neutralize perceived superiority.  

But as the cameras found the field, it was overcast but not raining, and 46 degrees.  Chilly for fans, but about perfect for the players.

The Hawks won the toss and took the ball.  The OSU kick landed at the 3 on the near side, and Cotton took off for the far side, trying to get the corner turned, but he got cut off and dropped at the 20 - by the kicker.  Had he got by him…

The Hawks came to the line with Jake under center, Mark behind him, and KMM alone down low.  Jake snaps the ball, fakes the handoff, and then rolls toward the far side.  As he gets back upfield to about the 18 he flips it forward to Duzey, caught right at the sideline, and out of bounds, 5 yards.  
Jake has the team right to the line, the same formation.  He changes the play, moving up and down the line to get his message across.  He snaps it, and hands it to Mark, who charges toward the far side, off tackle left, and he gets about 3 yards to bring up 3rd and 2.
