How bad was Joe Bauserman's evening in Ohio State's choke job at Nebraska? So bad that I saw this possibly facetious "Joe Bauserman Passing Chart" tweeted by OSU partisans @ElevenWarriors...
...and the biggest gripe I had was, "come on, don't try to act like he actually completed three passes."
Yep, Bauserman was 1-10 for 13 yards, and as this chart hilariously overemphasizes, he put a lot of balls in the seats whenever his first read wasn't open. Sure, that's the safe play -- and that's also a great way to blow a double-digit lead, which is exactly what Ohio State did once Bauserman was forced into action.
There's still no word on the status of Braxton Miller's ankle, so Bauserman may have to start at No. 16 Illinois this week. If that happens, here's to hoping Bauserman keeps more of his pass attempts at least in the field of play.
