Wednesday, November 16, 2011 - OSU Special Teams Making Impact

Quinn Sharp was holed up in the airport in Lubbock watching Boise State desperately try to hold on to the respect-earning "0" in its loss column.

The difference? For the second consecutive season, a gimme kick gone haywire.

Freshman Dan Goodale pushed a 39-yard kick wide right from the center of the field, cueing a wild celebration from the TCU sidelines as disappointed fans filed out the exits.

A week later, Alabama's perfect season ended on its home field, too, making just two-of-six field goals in a 9-6 overtime loss to LSU.

"That was a heck of a situation. That’s the worst possible situation for a kicker. Especially with Boise, it’s happened two years in a row now, but it’s just one of those things, you really are either the hero or the zero," Sharp said. "You never want to see that happen to somebody like that, but unforuntately, that’s the nature of the game."

OSU special teams play is especially Sharp
