Vaccaro vs Tavon Austin

Texas 45 vs West Virginia 48 (2012) (2.5 hours): LINK

I haven't watched the game yet, but from what I'm reading about Vaccaro, he supposedly did well when matched up against Tavon (even though Tavon caught 10 for 102, curious to see how many were against other players, not KV).

That link someone posted in the other thread talks about this exactly.

to be honest with you, I'm not that impressed with Austin. I think he is overrated, you'd swear he was the second comin of Barry Sanders or something.

4:45 into the game and a decent tackle and then a badly missed one.

When he lined up against him solely he held him to like 3 catches for 30 yards IIRC

the one thing i noticed is that kenny cant shed a block ( atleast in this game). Austin is prob 40 lbs lighter and 4 inches smaller ,yet he is making kenny his bitch when it comes to blocking him.

24:40 blankets Tavon in the slot, Geno has to throw underneath to someone else

re: Vaccaro vs Tavon Austin
the play that stands out the most is when he came from the opposite side and ran down Tavon from behind on the reverse.

I'm becoming impressed with his ability to not only lay the wood in run support, but he can clearly cover the slot receiver.

1:06:15 Just took a bad angle that allowed a first down, a couple decent jobs in coverage, but Austin in blocking him on run plays too easily

28:05 don't know if KV deflects the pass or just disrupts the vision enough for Tavon not to catch it, but KV is with him step for step and the ball is incomplete.

re: Vaccaro vs Tavon Austin
Two plays in a row, he's playing zone, and the ball doesn't come his way.

Plays a lot of NB, then slides into the box on runs like a LB.
