I've been binge watching JT's Youtube vs videos the past few days. I think there's been a lot of growth in his game over the past few seasons, just not enough growth in the offense around him. Our O-line = downgraded from 2013-2014. Our receivers = downgraded from 2014. Our playcalling = downgrade since 2014. I watch the game from this year vs Wisconsin, and it appears to me JT actually goes through his reads quite often. I see some growth in his game.

I have to agree with Down East here. Boyd & Watson are both names a lot of big time programs (including us) were after during recruiting. I see nobody on their current roster that strikes me as an immediate threat to pick up where Watson left off. Clemson can still coach the hell out of receivers and D-linemen, but their ability to remain elite may be even more QB dependent than most teams.

I heard about this earlier. I watched the games he started on Youtube, he doesn't look bad to me. But we'd be giving up a first round pick, so I would rather avoid it.

I'm not saying he isn't an outstanding athlete, but he did have the deepest receiving corps in the nation & a decent running game to fall back on. Mike Williams looks like a can't miss WR prospect, and Jordan Leggett doesn't get enough credit for his receiving ability. That may have bolstered his stats & effectiveness considerably.

I love this guy. He reminds me so much of Saquon Barkley: very speedy, makes guys miss in small spaces, can go north/south or out to the edge, has some power. They're the same player, I swear. I honestly don't know why we pursued any other RB, this guy is a big play waiting to happen.

I think Mitch Trubisky is the best QB in this draft. I think Deshaun Watson turns into a monster for the right team, but we aren't that team in my opinion. I think he's very mistake prone at thispoint in his career. We dodon't have the peices or the coaches to get the most out of him. Trubisky is pretty impressive with his decision making on the other hand, also has great size and a nice arm, good accuracy, navigates the pocket near flawlessly. Best part is he's from here and actually wants to play for us.

I was surprised at first, but maybe it's not so crazy. Big, strong guy with functional speed, proved against OU he can make some contested catches. There's a lot to work with there if the right team takes him. Plus I think he's a pretty good blocker. I don't see him going in the top 2 rounds, but 3rd round & later he could be a steal as a #2 receiver. I really hope he ends up in New England.

JT Barrett isn't the best passer, but I always thought he was a great fit for our offense. Our O-line regressed, the majority of our receivers failed to step up, the running game wasn't on the same level as the past 4 years, and the play calling was at times very predictable. If the rest of our offense can get it's shit together, JT Barrett can be a major asset to this team next year. He give's us more options running the ball & he can really extend some plays, just give the man some play-makers. I trust we'll be A-OK, Kevin Wilson was arguably the greatest offensive coordinator of all time late in his stint with Oklahoma.

Don't forget about our historic showings in the NFL draft prior to each year..

Comment 06 Dec 2016

I'll never understand how that happened either. Vonn Bell is also doing fairly well for a backup safety last time I checked. I think it's just proof that Ohio State can only beat itself in the Meyer era.

Comment 06 Dec 2016

I came here to point out this exact same thing. It's like comparing Michael Jordan to Larry Bird/Magic Johnson. Michael Jordan was always great, but came to be considered the g.o.a.t after those two had retired & he surpassed their accomplishments. Saban has just been at this a bit longer, but ultimately I think Urban finishes with the better career. The bowl record in my opinion is already tipped in Meyer's favor. And if the 2017 class is any indication, Urban's recruiting is about to hit the next level of legendary. Lets also not forget a saying that's often seen everywhere: don't try to out Bama Bama. Well I'm not saying they run the same offense at all, but they took notes from us. They've switched their approach to recruiting dual threat QB's, and they run more option plays these days. Some might say they're trying to out Ohio State Ohio State on offense while still running that classic Bama defense. It's only a matter of time..

It was my first game. I thought it was great. I clapped a lot, screaming too much makes my head hurt. Lol. But like any normal human being, I made noise when good stuff happened, cussed at the penalty flags, etc. The people behind us sat the whole game and made 0 noise. They were the only ones, but I was happy to stand up and block the view. When script Ohio makes you feel some type of way, you can't sit down, it's unacceptable. Shout out to the small section of students on the north side of the stadium, they didn't quit the whole game & even got acknowledged by Urban.
