Open note to Chris Nelson and Todd Orlando:
Coach took away your belly rub celebration for fear of a taunting penalty. Understandable. I recommend you consider and allow a subdued version of the belly rub while walking back to the huddle, as in "man them sacks taste good," done personally and for the cameras -- and they will look -- so as not to show the crowd or the other team and thus no taunting. Problem solved.
#don't kill the belly rub
You're not missing a thing.
I was just making an observation about 4.1 ypc being kinda of pedestrian in today's college football. There are 7 players averaging over 8 ypc, 12 over 7, 33 over 6, 77 averaging over 5, and 124 averaging over 4. Watson currently sits at #122.
It's still very early, but here it is just for fun....
