Well allow me to retort.....
I'm glad someone pointed this out...thank you!
Yes, at the beginning of the season I was an undefeated bandwagon person too. However with all these other teams cannibalizing themselves, you can't hold on to that adage anymore. I give you exhibit A) Marshall or example B)Boise of the old BCS. I also have beef with that whole power 5 thing anyway. So I hope everyone agrees that the ACC and, dare I say it, B1G aren't even close to being powerful. I'd give the nod to the B1G before the ACC, IMHO. Either way, the power 5 thing is a complete JOKE!
Since when are wins against Minnesota important enough to be called impressive? Why didn't the committee drop the Gophers from the rankings for losing to the Buckeyes?
Great article with wonderful insight. However you forgot about one important answer to all the why questions...
Only two scenarios possible:
1. He transfers (which is looking more and more likely as each week passes).
2. He stays with the Buckeyes to become a role player and back up QB. If you're still in the clouds, then please come down with the rest of us...we miss you.
^^^^^Yes...however I'd look at a team in conference, like Wisky or Nebraska. It's not out of the realm of possibility folks.
Where are you MMan...??? We all miss you SO much!!!!!
No, only because OSU won't have 26 recruits with 3 or 4 (or more) five star athletes. Oh, and OSU doesn't pay their recruits! If OSU did that, we'd be #1 in recruiting. Give it five to ten years and the shit will ALL come out in the wash(SEC=$$$$). DV me to oblivion...you know I'm right.
Wisky will continue to move up the polls (not to mention others will continue to lose) . Their downhill rushing attack will be tough, but not as tough as one would think in different conditions than Saturday night in Minnesota. Like many have said here previously, Relax, stay positive and all will work itself out in the end. R-E-L-A-X +s for everyone!
WOW^^^^So what you're saying is...Va Tech would have ran the same D as they did against JT? Let me answer this for you and apparently a staff member here (or two). Emphatically NO! Bud Foster isn't a dummy. He would have had an entirely different package for Brax360. OSU's coaches didn't adjust and OSU's Oline looked like plebes.
That being said, so what you're saying is, Circle K is your favorite QB or a better QB than JT or even Braxton? Either way, this deserves a "Common Man!"
Problem is...only one can start. There won't be a two QB system at OSU. Bank that.
+1 infinity to this^^^^^
I saw that comment above too....it's beyond ridiculous. That wasn't OSU's night and the coaches didn't adjust. That would have happened whether Braxton was in or not. Ignorance is bliss...
I'm not trying to poo poo this article, but I noticed these stats about week four and said something about Urban's motivation was for both Barrett and Miller. "This is Braxton Miller's team." I know think everyone (besides the Scarlet and Gray colored wearing fans) can now see that's not the case. There's NO WAY IN HELL that any coach would just turn the reins over to the old starter, after the new starter shows these signs of greatness (with 4 new starting Olinemen to boot). I'd say these stats above and the play Saturday night is all (I hope) everyone needed to prove this is JT Barrett's team now. Yep, all the "loyal" fans can cry into their tissues....it's OVER! OSU needs a QB at the QB position...not an Athlete. That being said, I can see Braxton being a part of this team...just not at QB.
I want whatever the people are smoking who voted 6th or higher. Considering OSU was just 16 two weeks ago, I doubt because of beating MSU by 12 OSU will be in the top 6! Not going to happen. OSU will be 7th or 8th. Take it to the bank!
I'm ready...and if you're not, then your balls dropped off long ago.
So where's MMan to come and dismiss this all away. Oh wait....he's gone! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Too bad...so sad.
If he's intelligent he will be gone in 3 years post HS. However that look in the pic above makes me think he'll stay for a 4th year. Just so he can match this below ;-)
WTF! So did they "bluff" OSU too? Wow ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Yes I totally agree. MSU handed OSU's asses to them in the first 3 quarters last year in Indy. It's a home game for them and they're ranked in the top ten and we're not. I tip my hat to Mark Dantonio, his coaches, and Sparty's players. As of now, they're the king of tB1G...for now...
OSU hasn't won the B1G since 2009...let's just start there and not worry about what Joey says, or Herbie says, or anyone at EPSIN. We all knew it would be this way...OSU can't afford a loss. Well that happened, in front of some of our eyes live and in person for some of us like me (which I'm still salty about). It sucks ass but it is what it is. I just wish our fan base would stop crying about it! Makes us look like ND fans! Who cares about the play offs...win each game one at a time and see what shakes loose.
The only thing I'm calling BULL SHIT on is Ole Miss' ranking. That's some overrated BULL SHIT if you ask this guy!
