I'm assuming that this would be a hypothetical "if all things were equal" question.  Obviously if JT had played 10 games straight, you wouldn't bench him for no reason. 

Otherwise, I'm still shocked that anybody would pick somebody other than Braxton Miller.  One of the best QB's in the country coming in to this season.  A Heisman favorite.  The past few years, he was the best athlete on the field hands down.  I know everybody is going to say: "Barrett is a better passer".  Look at the dropped passes Braxton has thrown!  *Looks at Corey Smith in the Clemson game*  Can anybody say that Braxton has ever had more weapons than Barrett had this year?  Receivers couldn't get open!  Urban called them a clown show!  Now, we have playmakers everywhere!  Even Devin Smith, who everybody has said was just a deep threat, is getting open underneath.  The WR are making plays!  Just like Cardale's first TD against Wisconsin, was that really a great pass?  It was a good pass, but it was one hell of a play by Devin Smith to go over the defender and catch the ball. 

I love all 3 QB's.  We are truly blessed at that position.  At the end of each of their careers, we can have a fairer comparison,but right now for me, give me #5 all day.

Are you crazy?  No doubt in my mind we would have won it all!

Comment 16 Dec 2014

Great post!  My only suggestion would be to maybe change "monarch" to "emperor", or maybe even "dictator".

Comment 16 Dec 2014

I actually saw Herbie defend us during Gameday on Saturday.  They were talking about the call, and he reminded them that if there would have been instant replay that the 3rd down pass to Gamble would have been a completion and there wouldn't have been overtime.  He basically said he didn't want to hear anymore about a bad call in that game!

Comment 11 Dec 2014

The stats aren't a lot different, that I agree with, except for doubling the TD's his senior year. My main point is Braxton has improved each year, like most players do.  There is no reason to believe he couldn't do it again, especially with the development of the talent around him

Comment 11 Dec 2014

I think Bar43 made a good point above.  Troy Smith was a different player from his junior to senior year.  Braxton could possibly do the same.  Not to mention the amount of talent around the QB position next year (and this year) is the best its been in a long time.  I just hope Braxton is healthy.  He is a great Buckeye, and I think some have forgotten just how talented he is.

Somebody please tell me how Cameron Johnston isn't a finalist for the Ray Guy award? 

Comment 08 Dec 2014

Unbelievably, Finebaum was actually saying how impressed he was with the Buckeyes and said there was no way we could be left out!

Comment 29 Nov 2014

Anybody blaming Tom Herman or Urban Meyer for JT's injury needs to be evaluated by a psychiatrist. Are you seriously questioning running the QB on 2nd down? If he would have scored, you would probably think he was a genius. I would elaborate further, but it is obviously above your mental capacity.

Best wishes to JT for a speedy and full recovery. Definitely looked like a broken leg of some sort. 

Great win against TTUN. Let's get ready for the B1G Championship!  Go Bucks!

Comment 19 Nov 2014

As far as Braxton is concerned, he has to do what is best for his future.  I hope (and think he will) stay with the Scarlet and Gray.  Braxton is a great Buckeye, and I just wish we would have got to see him play this year with all of the young talent, because let's face it....Braxton never had this much talent around him. 

Win and we're in!  Take care of business this week!  GO BUCKS!

What happens when Penn State comes back?  I don't believe ttun is going to stay a door matt forever. 

Comment 12 Nov 2014

A couple of things:

1.  We just have to keep winning, and by winning I mean embarrassing people.

2.  An 8 team playoff needs to happen.  5 conference champs and 3 at large bids.  They can use a points system just like the OHSAA does to determine ranking.  First and second level points from the teams you play.  Play a D2 school?  No points that week.  Top 4 get a home game in the playoffs.

3.  Alabama could beat Miss. St., then Miss. St. could lose again to Ole Miss, followed by Bama losing to Auburn or in the SEC title game, which could mean that there would be no SEC teams in the top 4..........the thought of this makes me giggle like a school girl!

The only thing that could have made that call better was if after she yelled "Roll Tide" the cut in with an "SEC Network" commercial with the "SEC!" chant.
