Hey guys,

   I'm sure we all know about Brax by now, so I won't beat a dead horse.

Though I'd try to lighten our afternoon by coming up with some nicknames for our new field general.

Obviously JTB is wide open...but thats just initials

I like 50 Cal.....any thoughts?

I like 50 Cal. Also the whole taking the wrestling Bad New Barrett and Barrett Barrage are good angles too. Side note, I like to see people rallying behind him immediately, hopefully he sees and knows we're with him too.

Why does JT "need a name"?!  How about "JT Barrett".  My guess is someone already tried to give him a name, and he didn't like it (hence "J.T.").  Why throw anymore pressure on this kid by trying to give him a "kool' nickname... Just let the kid go out there and play.

Well who pissed in your Cheerios, friend?

The answer may not be at the bottom of a bottle, but it never hurts to check.

It just irks me how everyone has to "be the next Johnny Football" or have a nickname.  Why can't we let JT Barrett be JT Barrett, and then if the time comes where some nickname pops up, then so be it.

I don't see why we have to label him a nickname now all the sudden just because he's a start.  Quit trying to put so much pressure on these kids that they have to be the next RS Fr Heisman trophy winner.  Let JT be JT.

So having a nickname makes you Johnny Football?

No, I figured itd be a nice break from hearing about Braxton all day. I suppose thinking a cool name for Curtis Samuel (C4) is basically crowning him the next Percy Harvin too

The wrestling fan in me immediately thought of Bad News Barrett.  Him delivering bad news in postgame pressers, #BNB style, would be epic, especially when it's time to give TTUN some BAD NEWS!

Just don't get hurt frequently like the actual Bad News Barrett in WWE.

I'm assuming that people are mentioning '.50 cal' because of the sniper rifle Barrett makes? This makes sense. 

I suppose it would work better if they made the full auto M2, we mounted on our vehicles, instead of Browning

And then I told her...i'm no weatherman, but tonight's forecast is calling for several inches!

Usually nick names are based off of what they remind you of when playing a game. If J.T. goes out and performs well and OSU starts getting wins, this thread will probably be restarted in another forum topic.
