Here’s to you, Mr. Robinson
The decision to go with Zac Robinson is looking better and better. Zac just scrambled 48 yards for a touchdown to give OSU a 28-21 lead, and Robinson is doing two things better than Bobby Reid did. He’s running better. And he’s running more. We kept waiting for Reid to tuck it and run; waiting and waiting and waiting. Reid never really would pull the trigger.
Robinson doesn’t wait. He dropped back to pass on 3rd-and-20, almost immediately saw open field and did not hesitate. He darted past the line of scrimmage and seemed capable of making the first down. Then Robinson made a move, zigging past a couple of Tech defenders, and Robinson saw that there was bigger bounty than a first down. He turned on the jets and spurted past a couple of more defenders to zoom into the end zone.
This is the kind of assertive play OSU lacked when Reid quarterbacked. I liked Reid as a QB; I thought he was pretty good and could be better. But he’s in his fourth year on campus. Waiting for potential to develop can hamstring a program. There seems to be no waiting when it comes to Zac Robinson.
