Swing and a miss! But Hicks had several great hits where he pretty much leveled the guy. The Stevie can lay down a block. Probably the reason the younger backs didn't see the field.
Speaking of hits, did anyone notice the shot Meyer took from the cannon crew after one of his touchdown runs? Northwest corner of the end zone...BAM pretty much point blank. He turned around and gave 'em a "what the heck was that" look.

I saw it as we were in the upper deck right off that enzone. It happened twice last night too but Meyer couldn't have been 10 ft away and right in front of the cannon on that play. I think Blythe got it pretty close on his 3rd overtime touchdown too. Did you see the hit that Meyer put on Toledo #21 in the first overtime, pretty much laid him flat and he was very slow to the sideline. :Swirl: :Swirl:
Besides his questionable blocking at times, I really thought Stevie ran hard. Hopefull he's put away his dance routines of the past and will continue to hit the holes hard. Part of it could be improved o-line blocking to though...
I was watching the game with a friend who plays in dline in college and after Meyer leveled a Toledo player on one of his td runs and the player was slow to the sidelines he was just laughing and said that even if a quarterback broke his collar bone he'd pop up and act like nothing happened. That was definitely one of the better hits of the night. :)
