I was born and raised in Cleveland, TN but my dad and his family are from Toledo, OH. We are Buckeye fans in my family, but I married a UT Vol girl... It's okay though because she is a wonderful woman and smokin' hot. I love to get on here and talk about Buckeye football. I'm an elementary school PE teacher, so each day I'm molding the youth of America.

JT Barrett is the 1st QB that was handpicked for OSU by Meyer and Herman.  Our offense will be more balanced and efficient under Barrett.  Braxton made a lot of great plays with his legs that weren't designed.  We are going to be just fine.  The defense will be much improved this year too.

I completely agree. I was kind of hoping (am I wrong for that) Braxton would turn pro. I've said on this site many times before, I'm a huge BM fan but he's an athlete playing QB. JT Barrett came in a much more polished pure QB than Braxton was when he came in. I'm looking forward to the future.

J.T. having a great year will definitely create problems for OSU next year IMO.  What if he leads OSU to the playoffs?  Do you bench a starting QB for a whole year to bring back a damaged Braxton Miller?  What is the offense is more balanced and efficient under Barrett?  Braxton is a legend in Columbus...  Are you willing to sit him if it turns out that J.T. is better?  I'm just looking at this from a positive perspective.  I think J.T. will run our offense just fine and he has plenty of playmakers around him.   There could be a QB controversy in Columbus come July 2015.

I haven't read all of the comments but does anyone else think Braxton coming back might be a bad idea? What if JT kills it and leads us to the playoffs? Do we pull him for a whole year to let Braxton back in? 

Comment 19 Aug 2014

He got hurt in the first couple games of his senior year so it hasn't quite been that long. 

Comment 19 Aug 2014

 Braxton's zone read abilities aren't very good IMO...  He just makes up for it with his ability to scramble and make people miss.  JT is supposed to be more polished passer and zone read QB.  

Comment 19 Aug 2014

The article says that Barrett is light years ahead of Pryor and Braxton at this stage. He's technically a sophomore. So let's hope he has a junior year like Braxton and Pryor since that's pretty much the level he's on. With a better passing game tho. 

Comment 18 Aug 2014

Mariotta is a stud IMO.  If Braxton could keep his wheels, but get Mariotta's ability to go through progressions...  It would be nasty.  

Comment 18 Aug 2014

What happened with Tyquan Lewis?  During the spring I read he could be the guy to get the reps while Spence was out.  Now he isn't even mentioned.  Anyone know what has happened?

Comment 18 Aug 2014

Not trying to hate on Cardale Jones, but we had to see this coming.  JT Barrett played well (IMO) in the spring game and he was supposed to be a more polished passer coming into college.  Hopefully he can run the offense efficiently if anything happens to Braxton.

Juaun Jennings from Blackman High School. He's been told they'll give him a couple of years to try QB but he will be moved to DB if he's not in the rotation after 2 years. 

Comment 01 Aug 2014

I get what you're saying, but UT doesn't have an elite QB on their roster and UGA's future QB ran the wing-T in high school.  It's not like they have stud QB's on the roster or in the 2015 class.  I know UGA has landed a stud in 2016  tho.

Van's dad is a coach on the Titans coaching staff, so I don't think he would need anyone to give him a car.  I like your thinking and sarcasm tho.  

Comment 31 Jul 2014

From what I was told, there was never a plan to commit on his birthday.  I think they knew this was going to be a longer process.
