To counter your point, if he was projected as a 5th rounder after last year. What makes you think that rehab and prep for a combine can earn him an NFL roster spot better than on-field performance in 2015 (with a much more experienced supporting cast)?

all JT has to do is throw an accurate ball and make good decisions

Well if that's all! 

Comment 19 Aug 2014

No downvotes from me, JTF. I don't see anything inappropriate or rude in your post, just an honest opinion. I think you're right, JT could be something special, but will likely have some growing pains along the way. Nobody knows for sure how he will react and play.

That said, I will side with the others in that I think the future looks brighter than 8 wins, even if Braxton were to miss the entire season. For me, Kent State, Rutgers and Illinois are wins any day of the week regardless of which OSU scholarship player lines up to take snaps. After that, Navy, Cincinnati, Maryland and Indiana should be wins 95% of the time. If you'd have me believe that our remaining games of VT, MSU, PSU, Minnesota and TSUN only yield one victory, then I'll strongly disagree.

Sweat, hands down. While Kirk may impact a handful of plays a game, and I'm sure he will because he seems to be a sure-handed WR, opposing offenses must be aware of a talent like Sweat on every down. On top of that, no matter who our QB is post-Braxton there will be a learning curve to read progressions and pocket awareness, which may limit immediate impact of a WR, whereas Sweat could come in and earn a spot in the rotation immediately.

Comment 18 Aug 2014

I lost my free safety job because of Rocky Pentello and Antoine Harris at Bishop Ready. Well, technically I lost it because I was slow and allowed them to complete deep passes at will for a half, but whatever.

Wouldn't mind at all seeing him become the running back version of Kenny G...

+1 for that, Hove.

Comment 15 Aug 2014

With all due respect, whoever Drayton, Herman and Meyer deem to be performing the best deserves the first shot. Not just the oldest guy because he runs fast and is big. I'd love to see Smith succeed, but if Elliott and/or Samuel are above him on the depth chart, then give them the ball.

Comment 13 Aug 2014

Back in 2011, prior to a daughter and the associated lack of sleep and time for certain hobbies, I wrote a few blog articles for a Buckeye site and got a chance to ask Tyvis a simple question. At that time, he was a high school senior and I asked him what he'd like Buckeye Nation to know about him. In his response, he said that "People may be faster than me, stronger than me, and have better high school seasons than me, but they will never outwork me!" Looks like he's continuing to live that, and he's definitely a favorite of mine on this team.

Comment 11 Aug 2014

I'm all for the "this is Rod's last chance" campaign, I just don't see it. That's not meant to put him down in anyway, as I think he has the talent. As for the reasoning behind it, I suppose that it's because this is a different team than last year. In my opinion, Rod is more of a between the tackles runner, and I'm not sure that we're built for that (at least not yet) this year. As most of the 11W experts have alluded to, through posted interviews and which players have been getting preseason attention, this offense is going to spread the field and attack space, and I think that EzE's game fits that bill. That said, if Hyde were gone, but Mewhort, Linsley, Norwell and Hall were still here, then I'd be on board with this post.

Comment 11 Aug 2014

On the other side of the coin, in these videos it seems that we often see Braxton throwing well and INTs being made when a back-up QB is taking the snap.

Comment 06 Aug 2014

I guess I was looking for something a bit more fact-based. Because he lost his only B1G CG thus far doesn't seem like a reason to count him out. Also, we're just 3 years into the B1G CG and he made it there in his only eligible attempt thus far.

Comment 06 Aug 2014

Devin Spencer and Evan Smith need to be solid, and James Dixon and Johnnie Clark could be those WR surprises, ay Beth?

Comment 06 Aug 2014

I think Meyer's lost his edge.

Just wondering what led you to this conclusion. I respect the post and honesty, and would not downvote you for it, as you clearly just shared your opinion. However, I don't get the same impression from Meyer.

Comment 05 Aug 2014

She's done 2 now, I believe. Both hilarious, though I've really liked them all. Nashville might be my favorite when the guy telling the Dolly Parton story forgot that he sang "I Will Always Love You"

Comment 05 Aug 2014

Well put, Squirrel. I guess that option had crossed my mind, I just don't recall seeing it used here. Have we, in previous years, used a starting CB as the Nickel? Granted, previous years don't apply with Ash taking over this season.

Comment 05 Aug 2014

Did you guys catch the "Armani will likely be the Nickel" comment from Urban at around the 8:12 mark? Most have been saying, and it was even written in yesterday's position battle article, that Reeves would be the favorite to line up opposite Grant, but that certainly suggested otherwise, no?
