Completely agree.  If JT Barrett wins 10-11 games this year he should be the starting quarterback next season.  He is going have a full year of chemistry with the skill players that Braxton doesn't have, Braxton would be extremely rusty (much to your point about not seeing live game action for 19 months), and JT might just flat out be better after a year of development.  Also think it is worth mentioning we would be halting JT's development for a year with if we hand the job to Miller.

This of course is predicated on the fact JT does have a good year, which is entirely possible.  He was a high commodity coming out of high school for a reason and is the backup as only a redshirt freshman.  I love what Braxton did at Ohio State and was very upset when hearing the news, but I think it will be time to cut the cord with him if JT lives up to what he is capable of doing.

With JT being so young the coaches probably feel he needs to get as many reps as possible, even if we are up significantly.  And if it's not JT getting them, it will be Cardale.  Therefore, I don't see Collier getting reps unless one of JT or Cardale go down.

Comment 19 Aug 2014

If it's not JT we might in some serious trouble this season.  To put it in perspective Miller doubled Hyde in touchdowns last year, 36-18.  If we lose so much production at Quarterback that he can't outscore our starting tail back, we are not going to have a good offense.

How does the interest of other high-caliber quarterbacks affect your view of teams and also your decision timeline?  Specifically, do you feel ever feel pressure to commit to a certain school earlier than you'd like?  Is that something you even pay attention too?

Welp i'll check back in tomorrow.  Hoping I wake up and this will all just be a dream.  
Comment 18 Aug 2014

Hopefully his heart and mind will be saying the same thing after he takes in the atmosphere at the Shoe.  To be frank, Kentucky isn't in the same league when it comes to stadium and fan passion.  After he sees this we will get him, tough to imagine Kentucky offers a better combination of heart and mind than we do.

1. @MSU- For obvious reasons.

2. TSUN- This game scares me every year, and for good reason.  We were supposed to roll through them last year, to serve as an example.

3. @PSU- A more seasoned Hackenberg, night game in Happy Valley, have a lot too prove, their biggest game.

4. Navy- A rusty Braxton Miller and a a tough offense to prepare for.  

5. Cincinnati- An underrated talented team going up against the "Big Brother" of the state.  Big game for them.

6. Virginia Tech- Glad this is a night game at the Shoe, we will be amped for this one.  Still a respected program to worry about.

7. @Minnesota- If people keep talking about it as a trap game, eventually it won't be a trap game.  We'll be ready.

8.  @Maryland- Diggs going up against a Secondary we still haven't seen improve despite the reports.

9.  Indiana- Have some weapons, but if we have to punt even once i'll be disappointed.  Only kinda kidding.

10.  Rutgers- Gonna welcome them to the league in a very big way.

11.  Illinois- Not playing or recruiting like they should be in the league.

12.  Kent State- Will be over by the time they get off the bus.  

Comment 17 Aug 2014

It is criminal how underrated Dante Booker is on this board.  Think he will be a special teams force and part time contributor at OLB, like Trey Johnson last year but only better.  Let's not forget Kwon isn't the only 5-Star freshman linebacker we have.  

Comment 11 Aug 2014

Pretty sure it was Eli Apple.  Looked like the same player making the INT earlier in the video, and I think I caught a glimpse of a number 3 on the front of his uniform.  

Comment 05 Aug 2014

Very good points, but I will make the point Meyer has had the tendency to lose players and replace them with even better ones.  Not saying this will be the case here, but it is enough to make me optimistic.   

Comment 03 Aug 2014

Always appreciated Antonio Smith at CB opposite of Malcom Jenkins.  Was a pretty good player, especially considering he was a walk on.  Had some sweet dreadlocks too.  

Comment 02 Aug 2014

Troy Smith's play action touchdown pass to Ginn vs. Michigan in '06.  Still one of the best play action plays I've ever seen, Beanie sold it so well.  

Braxton's game winning pass too Devin Smith vs. Wisconsin.  Only silver lining to a nightmare of a season.  

Comment 29 Jul 2014

Thanks again for the work you do Birm.  It's always good to get a "State of the Union" on recruiting, especially during the offseason.  

Comment 27 Jul 2014

You mentioned in another article we are falling out of favor with Kirk.  Are there any concerns that he won't make it for an official visit?  If the official visit stands, how do you like our chances?   

Comment 25 Jul 2014

Growing up a big Buckeye fan and not getting an offer at this point has to be frustrating, especially since he has a lot as it is.  Also after his performance at the opening, he might feel he has done more than enough to earn one.  I'm gonna give an 17-18 year old kid a pass for being "arrogent" about making the biggest decision of his life up to this point, especially when his childhood favorite hasn't offered yet.  The 17-18 year old argument may grow tiresome, but in this case I think it's relevant.  Let's commend the kid for not giving up and trying to get that offer.  

Comment 24 Jul 2014

Might not be a popular opinion but i'm disappointed Waters was fired.  It seems to me we lost a great Band Director who was merely a victim of "falling on the sword" of a long standing culture.  Based on reports Waters was actually trying to eliminate some of this behavior, which is more than other directors have done in the past.  Don't see much harm in this, especially when most of the band members embraced it.   

Comment 22 Jul 2014

A lot of people were curious to see what Terrelle Pryor could have done in UFM's offense.  If we land Gibson, this is the closest we are going to get too finding out.  I think the ceiling is that high, especially considering Gibson has an advantage Pryor never did: a real quarterback coach. 

Comment 19 Jul 2014

Nick Marshall at Auburn is worth a mention.  If he went down Auburn could drop from the top of the SEC to the bottom in a hurry, especially since they lost Tre Mason to the draft.  

Comment 19 Jul 2014

If Harris doesn't commit before the season I think we are in good shape.  When he sees a half empty Kentucky stadium as compared to a night game at the Shoe, I think his heart and head will be telling him the same thing.
