Focused coaches, focused leaders, focused team.  Buckeye Nation is blessed to have our head man, because there is no better motivator and driven coach in the game.  One of the players described Urban Meyer as the fiercest competitor he's been around and its rubbing off on this team and rubbing off on me too cause I'm a fierce competitor dammit! 

.......... Or at least I like to think.

Not gonna lie, that Bama victory was a little sweeter than the Oregon one for me, and probably the sweetest victory in the past 10 years.  It was a true representation of the adversity this Buckeye team faced all year down 21-6 several minutes before halftime and I couldn't be more proud of our Buckeyes, only thing that might've been sweeter is if we stomped them in the National Championship game.

Those awards are great, I believe the best quarterback should start too.  That encompasses the man who can go through his reads and win the coach's trust to sling the ball in the middle of the field (because that's where great QB's do a lot of their damage) be a field general, see things, make good decisions, prepare, execute, all those things JT has, he's a field general out there (when's the last time you saw Braxton audible????  very rare!!!), he's a film room rat, he's tough as nails, he has the IT factor that the other guys don't have, he's not sidelined a couple times a game I mean the list goes on and on, I just think its loud and clear that JT is the better man for the job and you have to admit breaking some Ohio State and some of Braxton's records as a FRESHMAN with a WORSE OFFENSIVE LINE is something that is unheard of and extremely impressive.  The way I see it (as harsh as it may seem) we won a National Championship without Braxton and beat teams that he didn't beat the year before when it was supposed to be a rebuilding year.  Why would you change that?  If Braxton starts/plays this season we lose a couple games, guarantee it.

If you knew anything about football you'd know that statistics only tell half the story.  If going by your logic then Texas Tech and other spread offenses have the best QB in the nation every year.  If you wanna go by statistics, JT broke records that Braxton didn't as a freshmen and with line and receivers not as good, and maybe even RB (Hyde to Zeke).  Total touchdowns, Freshmen of the week awards,  total yards, more passes completed, whatever you want, but again, statistics only tell half the story.  By eye test or by statistics, JT is still the better QB.  JT beat MSU with a weaker line and surrounding players while Braxton lost to them.  If JT is our QB, he beats Clemson in the bowl game.

You're forgetting what a QB encompasses.  Leadership, ability to read a defense and go through progressions and execute.  All 3 of those are JT's strengths and he is clearly the best on the team at going through progressions and executing, making smart decisions and executing.   Its not who looks the best and jukes guys out of their shoes, this isn't a viideo game.   Braxton is a great ATHLETE, not a great quarterback.  His athleticism has won games for us, not necessarily his quarterbacking ability.  He struggles with the zone read, going through his progressions and with touch and accuracy.  Tom Herman either called really short passes or really long passes, very rarely would we see Miller slinging it over the middle.  Miller is a great athlete and great football player but the only way he has a higher rating than JT is if its CFB "STREET".  Cardale is the QB that can bail you out of 3rd downs and has great leadership and charisma.  He also has a huge arm that defenses fear and is pretty accurate, just has to take care of the ball more.  I was impressed with his ability to throw down the middle and fit the ball into tight spaces especially those throws he made against Bama where he threaded the needle with throws down the middle to Marshall but overall, there is no doubt in my mind that OVERALL the offense runs like a well oiled machine with JT Barrett leading the pack.  With all due respect, I don't think Braxton wins against MSU, Bama or Oregon.  Leave the heavy duty to the big boys.

Starter should be JT, 2nd should be Cardale and 3rd should be Braxton.

JT should be the starter.  That's probably his way of motivating his kid.  I think most of Buckeye nation believes the offense runs much more efficiently with JT at QB (which is true and obvious) the kid broke record after record as a redshirt freshmen and just has the it factor, not only does he have the IT factor, he has it upstairs.

Well I'd say according to statistics, JT's gotten more Big Ten Player of the Week and Freshmen Big Ten Player of the Week than anyone else has, and I mean he's only broken several records in his freshmen season WITHOUT playing the whole season, he was shorted almost 4 games.  Besides statistics in this case only tell half the story.
