Saw this on another site and thought it was worth sharing...
Breaking down the longest run in Red River Shootout history - http://www.crimsonandcreammachine.com/2012/10/16/3514386/ou-football-2012-freeze-frame-damien-williams-houses-it
Thanks, Bearcreek! Kenny really had to focus on not hitting the defender's back, cause that was close.
That's who I am... a Sooner.
Great article. Favorite quotes:
"Here you can actually see Williams surrounded by three Texas defenders. Against a defense that actually knows how to tackle, one might think this would have been the end of the run. But oh no, not against the mighty Horns."
"It's also well worth pointing out (since we know what's coming of course), how far Stills comes to make this block. For a guy more than a few OU fans have said has a tendency to quit on plays, there sure as hell isn't any quitting here. Guy has made two devastating blocks the last two years that will never be forgotten when it comes to this rivalry series."
Well it looks like a fresh start and the last two games there was plenty fire in all players bellies, total team effort unlike the end of last year and portions of the first three games and if this effort continues I do not see losing another game this year.
I have watched the replay of this run several times, and I would love to see how this play would have turned out had Stills not made the block. If you watch it, Diggs was gaining on D.D. right until the end when williams finally started to turn it on. It looks like to me that the gap was even...or maybe even widening a little right before Stills blows him up.
DOn't get me wrong..I'm glad Stills made the block, but I still think D.D. might have taken it t the house regardless. It just seems like when he can run vertically and has the time to get up to his top gear, it's over.
I was at the game and saw Stills make the block and was impressed with how he mashed Diggs. However, it wasn't until I watched the game again a couple days later that I realized he came from the opposite side of the field to make that block. It really was an amazing block, both from an impact (devastation) and hustle point of view...as pointed out in the quote.
Great blocking both at the line and in the backfield, but there are not many running backs that would have taken that one to the house. D.D.'s move to get past the three defensive backs was reminiscent of Joe Washington.
Great photo! (And of course, a great play that will be remembered!) Thanks!
A foot race btw DW and Digs would have been fun to watch too.
Being there, it was fun to hear the OU crowd noise cheering for DW then morph into an OHWWWW!!! then back to cheering.
I love it when multiple cool things happen within the same play.
Then Trey comes along with one of his own. What a great day.
Thanks. I never get tired of watching that play.
I wonder what highlights Mack will have on his coach's show this week? If they are Texas highlights, the show will be over in about 3 minutes.
I watched quite a bit of the LHN while in Dallas last weekend. It was all pre-game coverage after all. However, you quickly see how filtered the content is. It's almost like propaganda. Seriously made me think of what it was like in Nazi Germany or N Korea today. It's no wonder those people think their poop doesn't stink.
That is great. Thanks
Just doesn't ever get old.
This is great. Thanks for sharing.
Man, I was there to see it too! One of the best days of my life!
Probably the footage of Big-Tex burning up. He wasn't destroyed as badly as The 'Horns!
The first tackler that misses him at the LOS illustrates how fast Williams is. Great blocks for sure but Williams' first burst is incredible.
I wish they did the same on the Millard run. It seemed like there were zero UT defenders around the runner except for the two Keystone Cops that missed the first tackle (the leap).
Cobbs and Vaccaro... nice work.
