You say he's a great student and wants to do mechanical engineering, so go with the best academic fit. Unless you are on a sports scholarship, playing sports in college are over-rated. I did it. I played D3 hoops. Afterwards i was like, whats the point?
USC and LSU... we owe them an 'L'
Coach Patterson and TCU wasn't complaining.. It was Baylor that was bitching.
Not sure why people are writing off guys like Holmes and TyQuan... they actually played this past season while Hubbard took a red shirt... Until we see Hubbard line up on the field and take live snaps, you go with what you know, and I know that as of now, these 2 guys are ahead of him on the depth chart
^This is 100% accurate. You need counter punches and constraints in order to keep the defense honest.
but the wr's route was flat, which tells me it wasn't a corner route.. so throwing deeper to the back corner would of been incomplete anyways. Von Bell did a great job of undercutting the route. Defensive players make plays too you know.
you don't throw the ball towards the middle of the field while you are rolling away. That would a been a pick there too. Take a look at the mike in the middle of the field
yeah, but those times he wasn't playing against THE ohio state, soooooooo.....
Been saying it all along... And to all you guys saying he should switch positions and/or transfer....[shaking my head]
yeah i know that... but Braxton won't stick around if he gets reduced to a back-up wide out... that's disrespectful.. He will remain a QB. Now whether he starts at QB or not, that is to be determined...
Nice try, but no. See, here at Ohio State, they use taller more rangy wide outs on the outside. Jalin is a pure slot wr and is settling into that role nicely. Also, I don't think Brax stays here if he is going to be reduced to a back-up rotational wr. That's a slap in the face.
Correct. The health/recovery of JT and Braxton will be a major factor. Probably the biggest factor.
Braxton will not start at slot. Jalin will continue to play slot, Thomas is the X, Vannet is the Y, and Corey is the Z.... There is no room for braxton to play wr, so he will remain a QB.
HAHAHA... it's a habit
this is great... iron man is the champ!!!
had a feeling this was gonna happen. No need to rush him back for spring ball. As far as I'm concern, zeke could skip spring ball... HAHA
Is it true that Hale was granted another year of eligibility? If so, I think he can start at nose. He was the original starter during the 2013 season. If not him then it would be Schutt. The younger guys have to prove that they can be consistent.
I agree with almost everything you stated, except about Withers. He had ties to North/South Carolina, which are, in this day and age of high school football, great states for recruiting.
so where are all those people who were saying braxton will be playing slot wr next year???........yeah about that..
jalin isn't an upgrade from philly; jalin just fits the slot role better. Philly was out of place. He was more of an outside wideout. Just look at how the panthers were using him last season.
Ummm... Hale graduates this spring... and he was an o-lineman last season
That's funny, cuz less than 48 hours ago, Sam was 265.... now he's suddenly 280? Send us the link to verify this...
No, because you are miss informed.. First off I said in the recent memory. Secondly, those are all horrible examples. Crabtree was a HS quarterback, which doesn't mean much of anything because alot of HS put their best athlete at QB. When he went to tech he knew he was going to be a WR, and he red shirted his first season at Tech. Denard flat out sucks in the NFL regarless of what position they put him at. Mike Robinson lasted like 1 season in the NFL as a RB, he should of played in canada. Edelman wasn't a very good QB in college anyways. Matt Jones was nothing special and played at Arkansas where they asked him to just run the ball. Cribbs is really just a return man and Hines Ward, he's a tough son of a gun who can play anywhere. Sorry dude, but I'm not buying this. Braxton will remain a QB provided that he can still throw the football with that shoulder.
very good point about blocking and the injury.
