Pure speculation but I am sure it was a small incident if UFM didn't feel the need to kick him off the team with his prior incidents here taken into account. That said, I am sure this is his last chance.
Halting a young quarterbacks development after a great year (assuming optimism) for a quarterback who hasn't played a game in 19 months certainly calls for controversy.
My thoughts as well, certainly not a textbook start to his career here. UFM has given him every opportunity to shape up, and I think this is the last one.
I think J.T. already is a better passer than Miller. Much prettier looking ball and has good touch.
Dante Booker doesn't get talked about nearly enough. 5-star recruit from Ohio, dominated the Opening, and cracked the two-deep as a true freshman; yet Kwon gets all the talk.
Kyle Berger was my pick before the injury. Two ACL tears is gonna be tough to recover from, Devon Bogard being a good example
Trey Johnson has been out most of camp with a knee injury. UFM said he'll be back next week. I'd expect a competition at that point.
If there's anything positive from this it sounds like he didn't get his black stripe removed because of injury, not performance.
Get well Marshon!
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.
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?
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.
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.
He's been hurt throughout most of camp. If I recall correctly UFM mentioned he'd be out 2-3 weeks, this was about a week ago.
What better time to use a Carlton gif to celebrate a Carlton commitment!!!
Had the chance to meet Kyle a few times through a mutual friend. This couldn't have happened to a better young man. The positivity in his tweet portrays that, hope he comes back stronger than ever.
Well said. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. Not buying into the hype again until I see something consistent worth hyping about.
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.
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.
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.
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.
