That's embarrassingly bad
Mike Thomas is going to give DBs nightmares this year.
Here is the link Interview starts around the 1:30 mark
No, he pretty much had it wrapped up after the spring game. In the spring game he went 12-15 205 yards and 2 TDs. He showed star potential early, and there was a lot of buzz about him leading in to the season. And this is what ESPN had to say
But what Trickett has in experience and knowledge, Winston beats in talent and astounding potential. See: Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel tweeting about Winston following the spring game, writing, "Hearing this Jameis Winston kid is a baller out at Florida State. Spring Football dominating and pitching on the baseball team."
Indeed, Winston left the spring game and headed over to the baseball field, playing in the second game of a doubleheader against Duke. Winston ended up with one hit and is batting .282 on the season while compiling a 2.45 ERA and two saves in 14.2 innings as a reliever.
For many, it was a foregone conclusion that Winston would win the starting job just based on his prep credentials. The man he is most often compared to, Charlie Ward, attended the spring game and believed the same, telling the Orlando Sentinel, "He's special. There's no question about it."
Im not suggesting what you say isn't true, most of the time I agree with you, and I actually like Herby...it just seems as though you are always talking/defending Herby on every single Herbstreit topic I see.
Dude, serious question...are you Kirk Herbsteit? Every post about Herby I have always seen you defending him. I honestly think you either know him or you are him.Herby is also a noted Cincinnati supporter.
The thing about Jameis is by the spring game everybody knew Jameis would be the starter..his talent was that obvious. I remember watching College Football Live after that spring game and they were already asking the question if Jameis could be the next Johnny and win the Heisman.
Watching ESPN and B1G Network, the national commentators don't seem to think very highly of J.T. from what they have seen in practice.
The good news is Johnny Manziel wasn't named the starter until the middle of August and I think that turned out ok. Johnny also struggled in the spring game going 13-27 150 yards 1 TD. Had a 60+ yard TD pass. In the spring game J.T. went 17-33 for 151 yards and led a 15 play 80 yard scoring drive.
Am I missing something, or are you pointing out that he has something in his shirt pocket.
After hearing about JT, with his great leadership skills, accuracy and being "Guitonish"...Im definitely pulling for him. I would like to see Cardale come in maybe at goal line and use his big body on a couple of goal line sneaks.
The playoff committee has a history?
Ahh...Im an idiot. The last Joe is still too fresh in my mind for all the wrong reasons.

Late Night Slice
Im expecting the defense to take a big jump...Like the saying goes, "Defense wins championships." When you allow an offensively challenged team like MSU to have their way with our defense, then yes...most of the blame goes to the defense. Hasn't that been the theme all offseason...to blame the defense? JT should have a very good defense and might not have as much pressure on him.
In my opinion, JT can win a championship just by managing the game. JT has a ton of skill surrounding him, and (hopefully) an improved defense. Braxton has had only one real chance at playing for a championship, and he isn't to blame for not winning one.
2011- true freshman QB thrown in to the fire after what should have been a redshirt year. Had very little talent surrounding him for much of the season.
2012-Undefeated, would have at least played for a NC if not on sanctions. This is a fact.
2013- Put up amazing numbers and won a shit ton of awards after missing 3 games. Would have beat MSU if not for Everitt Withers/Pittsburgh Brown/Defense. Fucked his shoulder up against Clemson and still came back on the field to try to lead his team to a victory.
To me it's ridiculous that you are making it sound like it's Braxton's fault that we haven't won a championship.
How, in any way can you say that Miller will be the starter next year?
If Braxton is 100% (for real) then yes, our returning 3 year starter, 2x Silver Football award winner, 2x B1G Offensive Player of the Year, 2x BigTen QB of the Year, 4th all-time winning QB in OSU history will be the starter next year.
Gibson won't be the starter his true freshman year. This is a positive.
2015 Braxton will be the starter (no question about it, even if Barrett leads us to a championship), JT will be the 2nd string and still get game reps, Gibson will redshirt and have the luxury of learning from Braxton and JT.
2016 we will see a "QB competition," but in my mind the Redshirt Junior Barrett will get the nod with Gibson having designed packages...and possibly lining up some at WR for game reps.
In my opinion, Gibson's first real chance at starting will be his Redshirt Junior year, unless JT tears it up and enters the draft early. Again, this is a good problem.
Obviously you want every player to be the best that they can. If JT is an All-B1G or even a Heisman contender...that's a good problem to have entering 2015.
Seriously, what's up with these questions today?
is he really 6'1? He looks awfully small to me.
Just watched it this morning (only JT, didn't bother watching Cardale). But he made some good throws, the OL was a huge problem in that game...but overall I'd give him a C. Let's just hope he has progressed since then.
Dude, there's like 10 topics on this exact subject already.
If the 2nd SEC team has as many losses but no conference championship...then how would that make any sense?
I have a feeling we will finally see the TE's put up massive numbers
Was feeling good about JT until I learned his first name is Joe.
With the playoffs, we have a little bit of room for error. We can lose 1....maybe 2 and still make the playoffs. As long as we win the B1G championship and the Big 12 winner has the same amount of losses as we do.
Stealing this from Mark Titus, but if anything I like Bad News Barrett.
JT Barrett rips BNB gimmick: "You think we suck bc Braxton's out? I'M AFRAID I'VE GOT SOME BAD NEWS." Drops mic, OSU fan erections restored.— Mark Titus (@clubtrillion) August 19, 2014
