To actually write out my thoughts on the play:

1. It was CFB Twitter's favorite play executed perfectly. Whenever we see a good wheel route, we all lose our minds. When we saw it in the Big Ten title game it was to cap off a massive comeback by our favorite team and score a game-winning touchdown. It does not get better than this.

2. It prominently involved Saquon Barkley.

3. A Watt looked bad.

4. Gus Johnson Gus Johnson'd.

It was everything.

Fun note on this: Mike Mayock said this was more impressive than John Ross running a 4.22. He expected Godwin to be around a 4.55 or a 4.58, something like that. Even if you disagree with this (which, I think I do because holy crap a 4.22), Godwin absolutely made himself some money today.

The main reason I'm optimistic is that when he's been at his best, Saeed Blacknall is horrifying. Watch how he obliterated Desmond King in these highlights and Wisconsin (which had one of the 5-best secondaries in the sport) in the Big Ten title game.

The issue is consistency and rounding out his game. If he can do those things, he'd golden. If not, that's when the DeAndre Thompkins and Irvin Charles and Juwan Johnsons of the world become so much more important.
