I don't believe Ohio State ever gets into the hype and marketing. They believe they are too big to lower themselves to begging for votes. The Heisman is still the most prestigious individual award you can get.
"The wrong quarterback retired, should of been JT and not Collier"
--- Irrational Ohio State fans
You are absolutely correct. There are a lot of things you can learn from history. 1) The preseason #1 team doesn't win the NC, and 2) The preseason Heisman favorite never wins the award
Apparently Las Vegas isn't aware that JT Barrett, the reigning QB of the year in the B1G is actually the third or fourth best quarterback on Ohio State's roster.
The chess match between Kevin Wilson and Don Brown over the next few years is going to be must see tv.
Haven't had your coffee yet?
If only Urban Meyer would realize that all of his backups are better than all of his staters, he would be unstoppable.
Michigan is fighting for, what Ohio State should of long been fighting for. I respect them for that, especially as more and more of the population shifts South and West.
This makes me respect Michigan and Harbaugh that much more. F*ck the NCAA and their limiting of any rules that helps Northern teams close the talent gap with southern teams.
I've always felt like the best place for the OHSAA football state championships was Columbus Crew Stadium. My reasoning is that it is the geographical center of the state, but the games will feel larger than life in that stadium. Mapfre stadium sits roughly 20,000, and that place would be packed for most if not all of the championship games. I feel like Ohio Stadium was way too big, and the games seemed more like preseason games because of the emptiness of the stadium, and Stark county isolates the majority of the rest of the state.
Urban Meyer plays the players that he feels are the best. I don't know what else to say. If we knew more than him, we would be out there. All I'm saying is JT Barrett is the starting quarterback because he is better than Burrow and Haskins. Mike Weber is better than Antonio Williams, etc. etc.
Unless of course you are referencing Buckeye Bengal. In that case, carry on.
You're the guy commenting on a message board, Urban Meyer is the guy coaching Ohio State. I am going to go with his opinion on who the better player is over yours, sorry man.
I can't wait for the spring game.
Urban Meyer believes in winning at all costs. If a player is starting, it is because he is better than the players behind him.
AllInOSU - During Tim Tebow's entire career, the SEC was by far the best defensive conference in CFB. Every week he played against an elite defense and still put up those numbers. JT Barrett is the best, or second best QB in Ohio State history, he will be just fine.
I will be extremely satisfied with whoever goes into next season as the starting wideouts. Whoever is listed as the wideouts will have outperformed the listed backups all off season, so they would deserve the right to start.
That would be nice
Phi - I 100% agree. May the best man win. I could care less who wins, i guess I will slightly root for Burrow because he is an Ohio high school legend, but really could care less. No rooting interest.
Oakland - I have no doubt that Burrow has a better jump shot, and can pass the rock better than Haskins. However, from all of the tape I have watched, it appears that Haskins is just slightly faster, slightly more agile, and slightly quicker than Burrow. That is against better high school competition as well that he appears faster and quicker.
ALLIn - During Tim Tebow's senior year, he completed 67% of his passes, for nearly 3,000 yards and a 21 TD 5 INT ratio, and finished 5th in the Heisman voting. We can only hope JT Barrett struggles like Tim Tebow this year.
It's a long long way until signing day 2018.
This makes me very happy. I think Burrow is the next coming of Alex Smith personally. Urban Meyer's perfect pass first, but able to run as well quarterback balance.
Thank you. JT Barrett is the best quarterback for Ohio State, therefore he hasn't been beaten out.
HTS - Tebow may have been the best quarterback in CFB history. If Cam Newton were better than Tebow, he would of played. Urban cares about one thing, and that is winning.
