Now why in the most logical sense would you have Braxton #1 and JT #2, that's ridiculous. People are letting their emotions get in the way of their logic, some people are attached to Braxton as a QB and that's fine, just use some logic. JT has done things in his freshman season that Braxton NEVER has and that's with all due respect to Braxton.
1) Braxton's best game last season was 198 yards and 4 TD's. He didn't break 300 yds last season and only broke 250 yds once.
2) JT has broken 250 yds 5 times in his 10 career starts and has had 2 300+ yd and 4+ TD performances (as a freshman, might I remind you he should only get better!)
3) He has better leadership and better command (as a freshman, might I remind you he will only get better!) for goodness sakes, look at his picture on scout Buckeye page, pointing out blitzers to the O-Line, now that's command!
4) Offense just hums with JT because of his decision making
5) Feels like he won't let us lose, he's got the IT factor and showed the world against Penn State. He had a mediocore game and showed resilience with an injury and still came back and won that game for us. (as a freshman!)
I mean lets really call it how it is here, I am currently a high school football coach in Dallas, Texas and there is no question in my mind JT has shown more command and better intangibles as a QB. I don't know how their injuries compared but both had sprained MCL's, JT pushed through it and put the team on his shoulders and Braxton had to take some time off, he's fragile. Why in the world would you want to stall a humming offense to put Braxton back in? He doesn't have the touch, accuracy or command that JT has. Great football player, not a great QB.
