I'll be 41 in December.
I've seen him play. Just because someone has a different opinion than you, that may not mean they are woefully ill-informed. But hey, if I was able to bring some amusement to your life, that's great too.
I admire your passion. TBH, I only write it as "B1G" because it's faster to type. That said. I may need to change my ways because I'd hate to be responsible for making anyone think of the Bee Gees!
I saw him play but I was young. As for the NFL GM's, I would agree they didn't think he was overrated. That said, I think they were all wrong. Issues or not, during his abbreviated NFL career he completed 45% of his passes for 3 TD and 11 INT. I respect your opinion but I'm guessing you're in a pool of maybe 10% of Buckeye fans who think he's the best QB in school history.
Upon further review, I think Boom wore #2 during his redshirt year in 2007. Considering all his contributions were made as #1, I should not have included him as a legit contributor as #2.
Oops. Yes, Norwell was obvi the undrafted FA. Typo fixed. Thanks.
Thanks. I accidentally flip flopped 2011 and 2013 pass yards per game on the chart. Fixed.
Honest mistake. Fixed. Make sure his parents know. I'd hate for them to flip out.
Fixed. My bad. Scout lists him as a RB though I know that's not correct. I was taking a flurry of notes and jacked it up.
Don't know who/how it happened but either the editor or myself accidentally deleted a few paragraphs from the 2002 summary. I wouldn't write about '02 and not include Clarett. Thanks for pointing it out so I could fix.
Yeah. I might have undersold him a bit. I guess I always thought he was a little overrated, or at least a little bit frustrating because he would disappear in games. He dominated Jake Long and had three sacks against Michigan plus he had four against Wisconsin so half of his school record total came in two games. On one hand, that's incredible, on the other, 7.5 sacks over the other 11 games is decent but not amazing. Just my .02...
I shouldn't write articles so late at night or lean on the editor as much as I do. Apologies! I have no problem with criticism so here's an upvote for you all..
I hear you, Jim. I didn't mean my comments to come off as harsh. I'm saying "wasted" truly from an evaluation of how a particular kid produced on the field. That said, if you get kicked off the team like Berry and Clarke, I'd still say that's a wasted scholarship. If you transfer either because you weren't good enough to see the field or because you were in the doghouse and on your way out like some of the others in that 2009 class, it's hard to argue that the scholarship wasn't wasted. The point of the article wasn't to infer I could do better. I'm just trying to evaluate the production of each player in each class so I can try to rank them against each other in totality.
In all sincerity, I'm curious as to what you'd call those besides a waste?
I was thinking Galloway's senior year was when Hoying shared snaps with Bret Powers but it was actually his junior year. My mistake. Thanks for showing me the error of my ways.
