by nature, safeties can't cover. lol That is why they are safeties! Not saying he is an all american but I see improvement. As someone else said, he always seems to be around the ball and had a very good game yesterday. He's turned the corner in my opinion. He's a better tackler than most people give him credit for too.
No they won't admit that. Because one play albeit at the end of the game doesn't make up for bad tackling in run support and bad coverage all season.
The kid made a really nice play on the ball when it counted - once. But he's not had a very good year overall.

I give Bryant creds for making big plays in a big game. Thats what a gamer does. Who else played big? Simon, Shazier, Brown, both corners, Bryant is in that group this week.... One more thing...Zach Boren doesn't get enough love for the big move to LB....just another team high 12 tackles....anybody notice our D is MUCH better since he came over? I can only imagine the amount of WORK and study required to contribute like he has. Hijack the thread: attaboy Zach!!!
The honest truth is that Wisconsin had been working two main things in the passing game: Deep in cuts with abbrederis against travis howard, and working the tight ends to get lost between the linebackers and safeties.
They ran the same pattern as on the touchdown, against a different coverage because of pressure. Props to bryant to recognizing it, and making a timely break on the ball. We haven't seen that from a safety in quite a few years.
However, I'd like to think that is more of an expected play, where the defender did his job, rather than an exceptional one.
Take out the personal fouls and CB has had a fine year based on the metrics of the coaching staff, to argue otherwise is electronic flatulence.
Thank you, Diddy.
If the coaches say Christian grades out as a Champion, I will take their word for it as they watch the games with much more skill than I have. HOWEVER, in rooting for Ohio State for 30 years I have never found myself more turned off by a Buckeye than Christian Bryant. His mouth is 10 times sizes too big for his ability. Players like Storm Klein don't have much ability but at least he keeps his mouth shut. Bryant runs around like he's Ronnie f'n Lott mixed with Deion Sanders. At least when Deion showboated he was, you know, actually shutting down an entire side of the field en route to the Hall of Fame. I dunno how many personal fouls Bryant has, but I wouldn't be surprised if he has the most in the last two decades for Ohio State. Every game I find myself saying to the TV "Bryant would you shut the f;;k up!" He's the best option we have, but man, he is annoying as hell.

I would argue that in this regard, he has matured vastly this season. If your sentiment is partially attributed to his play last year, I can't disagree.
