In watching the replay, I was amazed at how little positive impact Willie Carter had for Tulsa. He came into the game as Tulsa's leading receiver in 2011 (61 catches for 868 yards). Here is what happened during the game: 1[SUP]st[/SUP] Q. Green throws completion to Carter for no gain. Nice tackle by Givens. This was his only reception! 2[SUP]nd [/SUP]Q. Green throws pass behind Carter. Incomplete. On consecutive plays, Green overthrows Carter. Could have been picked off. Incomplete. Then, Green makes nice throw, but catch stripped by Klein. Incomplete. 3[SUP]rd[/SUP] Q. Green bounces pass to Carter. Incomplete. 4[SUP]th[/SUP] Q. On 5 of 6 consecutive plays, Carter had incompletions. 1. Green throws pass missed by Carter on sideline. Incomplete. Bothered by Watson. 2. Green throws to Carter on left sideline, but Carter drops it. Incomplete. 4. Green flushed from pocket, dumps pass to Carter, tipped away by Knott. Incomplete. 5. Green throws to Carter in the middle, but ISU ball knocked down by Klein. Incomplete. 6. Green throws to Carter, but great coverage by Klein. Incomplete. The only thing that happened in the middle of 5 incompletions to Carter on 6 consecutive plays was the amazing catch on the sideline where Garrett somehow got his foot down in bounds after getting clobbered. And these six plays were followed by Broomfield's interception and 51 yard return. Did our defense really do this well? Or did Carter just not show up? Turning their best receiver into an absolute non-factor (or worse, a huge negative factor) was a key to the game that I didn't notice until I saw the replay. I would love to have heard the OC while Green and Carter were watching film!
