Offensive Line

Tennessee should’ve dominated up front in this one, and for the most part the line held up well throughout the game. But some mistakes from freshman Trey Smith and redshirt sophomore Drew Richmond led to some negative plays, and the line as a whole has to get better at pass blocking consistently and on blocking for delayed hand-offs.

  1. It looked like a B performance all around, it seemed you WR/TE and D-line grades were a little low. Fewer drop (maybe 2) and none by the TE’s. WR bailed out average throws by the QB’s (Palmer’s catch on RPO, that should have been a TD catch and both of Johnson and Calloway TD catches) Even George’s drop on GITMO’s second quarter deep attempt was an underthrown ball to a WR who was behind the defender.

    The D-line didn’t rack up many stats but three come to mind, they gave up one TD drive of 44 yards, gave up a long run of 13 yards, and 10 of ISU 13 possessions were 4 plays or less. It doesn’t matter how you are playing a team can create stats like that with average D-line play. I didn’t even mention 3rd down conversions.

    Go big Orange and keep up the good work
