John Chiles - Player of the Game

I know its a bit early to rave about our kids, but I just have to say that Chiles was the reason the 'horns won (besides Finley, Cosby, Colt, the o-line, Segio Kindle, and Ryan Bailey).

You might be asking yourself "wtf has gotten into BMG?!"

Well if you recall, Chiles came in the game for one snap and handed the ball off to Jamaal for a nice game.  Big deal, right?  Not exactly, the threat of a running QB altered the Nebraska defense -- they had to stay home on the weakside.  This gave the 'horns the ability to put a hat on the defenders at the line instead of continuing to be overwhelmed.  So Chiles comes out, and what do we do?  McCoy establishes himself as a running threat running the zone read to perfection for a nice gain.  And then it was like a light went off in GD's head -- "Oh yeah, the QB has to be able to run effectively for a zone read to actually work!  Wow - I never thought of that!"

Unfortunately, Colt is not that kind of QB and we can't expect him to win games with his feet.  That light hasn't gone off in GD's head yet.  However, for one week it worked all thanks to the unselfishness of John Chiles.
