I wish I could upvote this a million times!!!!
Need to chill out with categorizing all southerners DJ. My roots are from Ohio even tho I live in TN. Everybody is good in my book no matter what the color of their skin is.
He will be fine. His time is coming and he will dominate when he gets in there. He'll go on to the NFL and make tons of cash. A lot of freshmen get homesick. Add that on top of not seeing the field after dominating in high school for so long and it makes it worse. He just needs to survive his freshman year and he will be fine.
Barrett is the QB of the future and the QB that will win a national title for OSU. I like Braxton a lot and appreciate what he has done for the program and university, but he's an ATH playing QB. We need to stick with JT from this point going forward. Just my humble opinion.
Just my opinion... But if we want to win a national championship and have a balanced offense, JT Barrett is your starting QB until he graduates.
I'll be the one to say it (in this case write it).
JT Barrett>>>>Braxton Miller
Sorry I'm not sorry.
Hes a better distributor and pure QB. I like our future with him.
Brady Hoke is done. There is no doubt about it. They won't fire him until after the season tho. They will have to give Les Miles and both Harbough's time to finish their seasons before they'll offer them a blank check. They'll also need to hire a new AD, so it will be a while before Hoke is "officially" fired.
The Va Tech game is on Herman and Urban. It was like they forgot what a quick slant or RB screen is. They didn't put the offense in a position to be successful at all. Can't blame that on JT.
Braxton isn't leaving and I have a feeling the staff will show too much loyalty. JT is the future and the QB who will win a national title for OSU.
I like your optimistic outlook but I still think we are a little young. Next year will be a much different story. I feel we drop 1 more game somewhere along the way. I hope we don't, but I'm trying to be a realist.
Well played Birm...
Also read on Twitter that Urban visited Ferns and Whitehead today.
The freshman and sophomore (redshirt freshmen also) classes will be the players who win a national title for OSU. Prob their junior or senior years. A lot of very talented guys in those classes.
Unlike Cris Carter, I do respect my wife. Apparently he has nothing but respect for money and playing time. And as a teacher, I'm here to tell you that kids who arent disciplined at home are the problems in the classroom. I'm not saying physical punishment, I'm just saying kids who aren't disciplined at all. There's a happy medium where you can discipline your kids without leaving cuts and bruises all over their body.
I'm confident we will 10 games and I'll leave it at that. If we win 10 plus a bowl game without Braxton, I'll be happy. I'm not the biggest Braxton fan, but he did make bad plays look good. JT Barrett and our defense are a year away. Unfortunately, JT will get some great experience this year and then will be on the bench again next year. I think it would be more beneficial for Braxton to go pro or switch to the H-back position.
Lewis is buried on the depth chart behind Bosa. He'll never start until Bosa is gone. I haven't seen him on the field much at all this year. Move him to the other side instead of keeping him on the bench. If I remember correctly Urban talked about Lewis being a guy who would see quality time this year.
I'm still stunned at the amount of go routes we ran. A few slants or screens and we could've have their defense off balance. It seems like Herman doesn't make any in-game adjustments. I haven't been too impressed with his play calling.
Braxton and Carlos have covered his tail the past 2 years. I think Texas Tom needs to hunt for a head coaching job next year. Bud Foster kicked his tail tonight. We threw the ball to a slant route 1 time and Michael Thomas scored. I expected to have some lumps this year but not because of an incompetent o-coordinator.
Does Herman know what a slant route is? The only one I saw is run, Thomas scored a TD. The play calling was absolutely brutal. This game is on Meyer, Herman, and Warriner.
Va Tech 14
Va Tech is going to be younger than our guys. Their d-line will be tough, but our speed on the edges will take them out of the game. I look for Barrett to be over 200 yards passing again and somewhere around 60 yards rushing.
Great work Ramzy... As the season progresses this team as a whole has the chance to be Urban's best team to this point. The defense is only going to get better and JT makes the offense so much more balanced and efficient. The only hurdle for the offense is Herman's conservative play calling. These young guys are going to grow tremendously over the next 4-6 games and will be a serious contender for the playoff.
JT Barrett is going to be a better pure QB than Braxton. I'm looking forward to the future with him running the offense.
