Commentary on Markelle Martin today was on the money. While OSU's corners might have been slightly over-hyped, it seems Martin took a lot of pressure off of them. If that is true, and in your opinion, what is the best way to fix that problem?
That's a great question--something I plan to write about today. The secondary play, and the corners specifically, has been the most surprising (disappointing) development so far in the early season. They're getting beat 1-on-1, getting PI calls and not getting interceptions. I hope to get some insight from Bill Young and those corners this week to see what can be corrected. Maybe they're allowing too much space? They rarely play right up on a receiver.
What was the tone of the crowd after the game? First loss (at home) in a while. I think I read about a full round of applause for the team after the game despite the disappointment?
Yes, standing ovation. Gundy tipped his cap to the crowd Sunday night, and Mack Brown did the same yesterday.
