Shotgun in the wild cat perhaps. But #5 won't be listed as QB this season. Which is for the best for him and for us.
The problem we have is one helluva problem. Spreading the ball around amongst Braxton at H-back/wr, Zeke at RB, Marshall at wherever the hell we want him, M Thomas, C Sam, J Dix, E G-W (early prediction for a stand out frosh)... Then throw in Cardale or JT, whoever it may be. It will be tough to pull a heisman winner out of the Scarlet and Gray because of all the insane statistics we will spread across so many weapons. Can you imagine Zeke and Brax both being 1,000 yard rushers meanwhile Cardale (or JT) throwing for another 2,300 and 25 touchdowns? Like... what do you do??
Get a DVR. He's not coming back...
See, I can do it too.
Gotta take the next step. The step no one wants to talk about.... Like that amazing summer camp where you bungee jumped like a badass, won the cabin challenge MVP award and finally touched your first titty (over the shirt).
You gotta go home. You gotta say goodbye. You gotta welcome 2015 and whatever comes next. I don't wanna. I just wanna stay right here in championsville. #1.
It's exciting as much as it is sad. But time does go on. And we go on as the undisputed reigning champions. Not forgotten.
*drops mic, but it gets caught on sleeve, and then I trip a little bit but it's still cool*
Way to take the easy way out... "Jeremy Birmingham"... if that is your real name.
Ok but who hedges their bets with Don Henley ahead of time?
New season in 74 days... Mark it down!
Dammit... yep. I see it. You win. You're Ray Jay... I'm Kanye.
Of all the times in my life of being embarrassed of having an erection in public... This is not one of them...
Man... I want to celebrate this post. I really really do... Especially if his wife is some jugsy B- (I stay in my lane) without a gag reflex. I will stay neutral and not vote either way but I'm definitely tossing you that glance from across the party that says "...solid"
I feel really really bad for whoever VT puts at QB...¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Urban does not have a clause in his contract that pays him a bonus for a national championship... How is this possible? I read that Gene Smith got himself a bonus (throws up in mouth a little bit). Urban got 350K for the B"1"G title and the Sugar Bowl... but did not get a bonus for winning the NT.
This is just mind blowing to me... In this day and age of coaches incentives. Oregon's coach stood to make a NT bonus if he won on top of his NT bonus for just getting to the game... On top of his bonus for winning 12 games.
We own the 3 best QBs in the B"1"G... And maybe more considering Stephen, Torrance and Joe. (No we're not on first name basi (plural for basis) but I like to think if we met they would be cool with it.) What great problems we have.
1000 upvotes from my heart... 1 from website restrictions.
I believe what the original poster is trying to say is our running game is much more prolific when we have a QB that can balance and punish through the air. Braxton hasn't proven capable of doing that consistently thus far in his career. Zeke was able to establish himself BECAUSE he didn't have a run first (only) QB taking carries away from him in the zone read.
Don't. Feed. The. Trolls!

On twitter, as we speak, Michael Thomas is trolling Dontre Wilson (and Buckeye Nation) stating that he is joining Cardale to declare for the draft at his press conference... I say trolling because I refuse to believe that he is telling the truth in any way shape or form.
Not the first decision me and @CJ12_ have made together— Mike Thomas (@Cantguardmike) January 15, 2015
He's announcing at 3pm at the Ginn Academy which tells me a few things:
He's not in Columbus
He's not in his classes today or "Playing School" in any way shape or form
And god bless him and his journey ahead. I wish him and his new baby girl all the awesome things that are ahead of Them. He will forever be a Buckeye and our Champion. The 3rd stringer who replaced 2 potential Heisman winners and went on to take down all 3 Heisman candidates... back to back to back. The "one foot out the door, twitter busting knuckle head" who took his one shot and made it count for all it was worth. Cardale is the American Dream personified. Choices, consequences and second chances... God Bless you 12 Gauge.
I compare you (very figuratively and in no way a play on my sexual orientation either way) to that smoking hot blonde I met on my 10 day family vacation down in Hawaii back in 1995: I was 9 and she was a solid 10+... You're forever unforgettable. It was all over just as quickly as it began, and will always be one of the greatest moments of my life.
(ps... Tori, if you're reading this, Kuaie '99, 5 foot 2 inches of slim stacked sexy, rockin the flo-bee bowl cut and jean shorts. You know you remember. Still got the jorts... and the flo-bee...)
I guess I would just ask you to look at what happens when you cannot pass the ball VS a formidable opponent's defense. And ask again; how many times, in Braxton's entire career, did he throw for over 250 yards in a single game? (Against any opponent, no matter how weak or strong.)
If you want to say Braxton is an amazing football player that belongs on the field for OSU next year. I will not argue with you one bit. But if you want to say that Braxton deserves to be our starting Quarterback because of all he's proven at the position, that's just simply irresponsible in so many ways. And that is the crux of your original statement, correct? Or am I just not getting your point?
The offense was in no way shape or form as effective as this years offense when it came to formidable competition. The 2013 offense compared to the 2014 in "big games" (NW (hey it was a ranked match up and we barely escaped), MSU, Clemson 2013 vs MSU, Wisky, Bama, Oregon 2014) is all of the facts and data one would need to show that a one dimensional offense (2013) will not win a title. Why were we one dimensional? You can't blame the 2013 Offensive Line (See NFL rosters), you can't say we didn't have a running back to take the pressure off of Braxton, you can't say we didn't have a sufficient receiving corp for him to make the throws (I will say that our receivers this year seem to be far superior to 2013, but they're virtually all the same guys besides Philly. And Philly made some great plays this year in the NFL as a rookie). What is the common denominator? Or better yet just ask yourself the very simple questions:
What is best for Braxton?
What is best for Ohio State?
AGAIN, I love Braxton just as much as anyone else. I will forever be thankful for the amazing things he's done in scarlet and gray. I hope to see him starting for the Bucks next year in the position that best suits him and his future as well as the future of our program. We are on the same team here, Bolt. One of us just prefers red gatorade vs yellow gatorade (or riptide rush... RIP).
