The argument is that dual threat guys can't do well in the NFL, so Cardale can't prove the haters wrong until he is actually succeeding in the pros. What would help is if Mariota and/or other dual threat guys like RG3 made a successful transition to the next level (like Russel Wilson). The problem with that example is Russel was trained in a pro style system (Wisconsin), thus reinforcing the haterzzz.

I think it may be tough for OSU to recruit pro style passers that have NFL aspirations. There has been a lot of talk recently (mostly about Marcus Mariota) about how spread system quarterbacks don't transition well to the NFL b/c the system doesn't teach the QBs the mental things they need to be able to do in the NFL.

I'm sure Guarantano has heard that pitch and I am sure that the Buckeyes have developed angles to counteract that argument from pro style system recruiters. But it's still out there.

BigNut2017, I admire the depth and breadth of your optimism. I also understand the courage you showed in posting your beliefs knowing you would be crucified by the commentariat of 11W. Bravo!

Just don't be sooooo wrong next time.

Awesome thanks for sharing. Hope that becomes more of the norm.

I would like them to choose an artist I dislike. Also preferably one who makes bland music that fades into oblivion after you have heard it more than twice. I feel like Pit Bull fits both of those categories, so I would nominate him. The lyrics could include themes such as "time to party", "coming from the streets", "baby you look so fine", and all the other beige song concepts that are unmemorable.

I heard on the Dan Patrick show that this Chicago team beat Mo'Ne Davis' team. That really bums me out that her story ended b/c of cheaters. It would have been cool to see her pitch in the finals. My outrage factor is low because it's just kids, but that was a nice feel-good story to pass the offseason with.

I've been watching a lot of the Prem since I have been losing interest in the NFL. I'm taking time to narrow down a favorite team.

Not a big fan of the teams that try to buy a championship like City, Man U, etc. But, that makes them easier to watch. Here is the list of teams I am growing to like:

Arsenal, Tottenham, Southampton

I took a shine to Leicester, but it looks like I won't get to watch them much longer.

Agreed. I can't believe Mattison is staying. Gonna be tough for him to swallow.

Comment 29 Dec 2014

Yeah, he is fired. His technique was awful. He is hitting WAY to high. Zero leg drive. Plus, he is not even attempting to wrap up. Go coach flag football. See ya!

Nike's not perfect either. My wife ordered some Nike's with "Buckeyes" on the side and when they came, the shoes said "Buckeyec". That sounds like some kind of Russian fish.

I love this defense. Even when they are getting beat it's because they are not giving away anything easy and taking risks.

They only thing I haven't liked with the DB's is their tendency to watch the player on deep routes/throws instead of the ball. But DBs everywhere do that. Hopefully the extra coaching over the next few weeks will pay off in the bowl season and next year!

If it were me I would plan to score more points than Alabama. I would tell my offense to score a lot of touchdowns and then my defense has to keep Alabama from scoring touchdowns.    -John Madden
