This is probably of lesser concern to the masses but I am interested in what Kenny G's role will be on the team this coming season. Obviously, he is the back-up, but Urban has gone on record saying that every team needs to have a back-up prepared and game ready and that us being caught with our pants down last year was a little embarrassing.
He also has given Brax all of the 1st team snaps and reps in practice and has really harped on Braxton's development as a QB and leader being one of our biggest keys to success as a team.
I have always been worried about Braxton's durability (he's a little fragile and he runs like Troy did, recklessly) and that was before he was going to be featured in an offense that is going to truly take advantage of both his legs and arm. Not just legs because the "offensive coordinator" called a PA pass on 3rd and 13.
Anyhow, my question is, what are peoples thoughts and feelings on Kenny G and what do people believe his role in our offense will be this year?
Obviously Braxton is THE man, but I think it is important to continue to get Guiton time under center and game experience. He is only a junior and coaches have been high on him. In the event Braxton misses some gametime due to getting dinged up, I think Guiton is more than competent and capable as a back-up to run the offense. Furhtermore, he chose to come to tOSU last minute, has stayed through all the adversity, and has always been a hardworker on the field and in the classroom. I hope he gets some decent reps throughout the season as we continue to put teams away.
