The second safety should have been a 15 yard personal foul on the Syracuse defensive lineman. Geno was moving to the left and had open space and a blocker in front of him. The Syracuse lineman intentionally leg whipped him and brought him down.
Geno should have noticed the blitz on the first safety. His right side was overloaded.
Geno should not have been in the endzone on the 2nd safety. The ball started on the 9 or 10 yard line. He had time, yet he kept drifting back and back. Did the ref miss the trip - yes. But it still doesn't excuse Geno's failure to know where he was and his inability to throw the ball away.
