Granted, most of us already knew this before the Fiesta Bowl, but he put the exclamation point on an amazing season in the 2012 Fiesta Bowl.
He got frustrated early in the game, as he had zero receptions and OSU was down 14-0. His frustration was recognized by Weeden and the staff on the sidelines.
After that, he ripped off a 43-yard touchdown reception and a 67-yard TD reception in quick succession to tie the game at 14. The man had two receptions for 110 yards and two touchdowns. He was heard from again before the game was over—with another TD.
Blackmon has the ability to make things happen that are rare in the world of football. If you haven't had a chance to see his appearance on ESPN Sports Science, I recommend it highly.
His presence will be missed at OSU. I wish him luck in his future in the NFL, and I will look for him there. (It probably won't happen, but I'd like to see him in Atlanta with Julio Jones.)
