Think they are just saying he can't run at the moment and Braxton can't throw at the moment because of their injuries. Not that two heisman contending QBs can't throw or run in general.
Braxton ran a 4.32 and was the second fastest person on the team behind Roby (4.29) during the 2013 season. If he is full speed by the season he will likely be the fastest person on the team (I believe Dontre and Samuel both ran around 4.4 and 4.38 coming in). Not to mention Braxton is the most elusive person on the team and one of, if not the most elusive player in the nation. Regardless of whether he is QB or not, if he is 100% he will be on the field a good deal. They could move Dontre/Jalin to receiver and the other could take the snaps at h when Brax wasn't in. And Braxton returning punts would be outstanding. That being said, I hope he comes back 100% and ends up starting where he wants, whether that be QB, H Back, or wherever. He has earned it.
We have to understand that Braxton is in a completely different situation. For Cardale it was either OSU or NFL, neither of which would cause anyone to dislike him. For Braxton it is OSU, potentially transfer, change positions, or maybe not even be able to play ever again. There is a lot going on with him and he has a lot of variables with his future. You can, however, see he wants to be a Buckeye so we can't be mad about his lack of transparency.
Bama, and it is not even close. I enjoyed this win more than any in my life, even the high school/college games I played in (albeit only D2). I was fairly young during the 2002 season, so I was not as involved then. Honestly, after hearing all of the talk since 2006, the victory over bama was just supremely satisfying.
They always charge, although it is pretty cheap. Last time I went it was $5 online or $10 at the gate per person. Now I think it is something like $10 and $20.
He tweeted this evening that he was praying.
Win or lose, this is almost every conference opponent on a yearly basis.
I don't think the first 3 are bold at all. I will be surprised if Zeke doesn't get at least 150+, this is the toughest DL they have faced - I can see mariota throwing a couple picks, and 500 yards should be incredibly easy with them having a low ranked defense. I don't think the offense we run with 12 gauge at the helm is conducive to him scoring 6 TDs. This isn't the JT or Brax playbook where they are constantly running the QB. I think he has 3 passing and gets a rushing TD in a goal line scenario. The three touchdown win prediction is bold, but I can see us getting ahead early and breaking their spirits. It would be awesome for sure.
To supplement the first three... I will say:
1. Bosa will have two sacks, forcing a fumble that someone takes for 6 on one.
2. We will have a +3 turnover margin.
3. Curtis Samuel will take a KR to the house.
I want Braxton to stay as much as the next guy, but my whole take on the scenario is a little different. I didn't know that tweets I favorited were broadcast on my followers timelines occasionally until recently. He doesn't tweet a ton and definitely doesn't favorite a ton. It is very unlikely it would have been uncovered that he favorited that tweet had it not been broadcast on other timelines. Maybe I am being a little over cautious, but I have had the feeling that he may want to go somewhere to better showcase his passing. Just because he has vocally complained about all the designed runs in the past and he didn't look very satisfied on Thursday. Also, another probably insignificant factor, but he was wearing a gatorade towel that covered up the OSU logo on his jacket the whole game.
If you just do a google search you can find people that post their username and password for others to use watchESPN. It works.
52-17 Good guys.
