Stanford vs. Notre Dame
1st - 7:00 - Nice throw on rollout and under pressure
1st - 5:26 - Nice throw with touch and accuracy over LBers ...
1st - 3:42 - Good touch and accuracy ... good job handling pressure ...
1st - 2:17 - Bad accuracy ... receiver had to come back to ball (CB should have INTd it) ... ball should have been to thrown towards pylon where nobody else would get it ...
2nd - 7:18 - Ball could have come out earlier here before WR broke route
on skinny post ... completion, but it the pass wasn't
as effective as it could have been
2nd - 5:05 - Nice accuracy on fade route
2nd - 1:31 - Floats ball too much on fade route ... WR was easily covered ... ball is tipped and INTd
A lot of routine throws for Luck ... relatively easy completions, relies
on accuracy and touch ... not much difficulty here in his passes.
3rd - 11:02 - Very nice footwork in drop back and sets up well ... unimpressive throw - doesn't use (or have???) arm strength to fit
ball into window here ... ball could have come out MUCH earlier ... WR has to sit and wait on it and this ball is broken up by DBs
3rd - 10:56 - Terrible decision here ... rolls out to left and throws
across body over middle - ball should have been INTd ... throws to WR with 2 defenders covering him ... doesn't throw ball with much arm strength and serves it up ... should have thrown this ball away on 3rd down in FG range
3rd - 7:32 - Nice mobility
3rd - 6:28 - Poor job reading defense ... doesn't see LBer - he tips ball ... INT
4th - 12:48 - Excellent job of stepping up in pocket to create throwing lane ... accurate throw when moving in pocket.
1st - 0:43 - Beautiful adjustment to ball ... nice body control ...
