Not trying to accelerate the debate, but who says Barrett cannot win a game by himself? I suppose if you're referring to simply taking off running, then sure. However, in my opinion, 3 games into his collegiate career, J.T. is as good at getting the ball to receivers in short and mid-range passes and better at his progressions than Miller. I just think you're jumping the gun on pro vs. college level talent. If you're suggesting that Braxton is on par with the names you mentioned above, from a passing standpoint, then I'd strongly disagree. Like I said, give it the year and then revisit.

Not saying J.T. > Miller... just that it won't be as easy as you say.

My first time being at The Game...

Comment 15 Sep 2014

It looks like a coin toss right now. We can, as OSU fans, say what he should do all day long. However, the pull of having an entire state commonwealth begging for you to play and hoping that you can be the foundation of their program's introduction to relevance has to be pretty enticing to a kid.

56-13. I think Urban goes for a couple of 4th downs in FG range to show his disapproval of last week's kicking performance. Their TD comes late in the 4th, after I've drunkenly revived my hopes and dreams of a playoff season.

Furthermore, I think we see a long TD run from Samuel and Michael Thomas continues his TD streak.

Comment 12 Sep 2014

Though I agree it may happen, this team only scored 2 TDs against the South Alabama Jaguars (at home), so to say we'll at least give up 10 might not be accurate. I mean, I hope it's not accurate.

Comment 12 Sep 2014

Yes.

Remember those games when Tress would obviously shut it down in the 3rd quarter against in-state opponents and other lightweight teams? I sincerely hope that this isn't one of those times. If, and I hope it's more of a when, this team gets rolling on Saturday...let them roll. If that means we put up FAMU numbers and embarrass a poor MAC team, then so be it. Give these young offensive players the confidence they need.

Comment 11 Sep 2014

Yes, I honestly do. This isn't a case of racial comments. We're so quick to jump on this, when it looks like a simple goofball answer and a jab at a guy with a weird name that sounds like donkey kong.

Comment 11 Sep 2014

If his name didn't sound exactly like "donkey kong" then I think you'd be on to something. This is a non-story.

Comment 10 Sep 2014

I'll gladly take the downvotes for agreeing. Love Paul Keels.

I'll take that velvety monotone speed talker calling the Buckeye games any day. And, when I was tuned in to pregame stuff this past week, it was Lachey who couldn't get any names right and had trouble getting his words out clearly.

Comment 08 Sep 2014

I see both sides of this, just not a fan of schools having punishments reduced with good behavior.

Comment 08 Sep 2014

Apologies, I read it as a knock on Smith originally. In that case, amen.

Also, I didn't downvote you. Just sharing your opinion...which I now am mostly on board with.

Comment 08 Sep 2014

While I agree with your statement completely, I'll still play devil's advocate. If #84 catches the ball that hit him in the numbers in the endzone, JT hits Wilson in the flat in the 4th quarter, and a number of different coin toss plays, nobody is having this heated of a discussion today. There were obvious flaws, and I personally didn't like much of the offensive playcalling, but it's possible that Urban feels the mistakes were on the field and not on the sideline or in the booth.

Comment 08 Sep 2014

Das Boot is now 2/4 on field goals. How many do you let him attempt and miss before you think of letting Clinton kick in a game? If you're Meyer, what would you do in this situation?

Clinton likely hasn't endeared himself to Meyer with his out of bounds kickoffs either. But, if there's one thing we know about an OSU freshman kicker potentially having a rough year, it's that he'll undoubtedly become the school's all-time leading scorer and go on to play in the NFL. It's science.

Comment 08 Sep 2014

I'm not sure how you'd define abysmal, but he currently has a third of our receiving yards and a 50 ypc average. He has roughly 1/4 of his season yardage from last year on just 3 catches.

Comment 08 Sep 2014

Sure, but that's what they kept calling. So if he's a one trick pony, in your words, and that happens to be the one trick that our offense kept calling, why not give him the chance?
