Completely disagree. There are expanded playoffs at every other level of competitive football. 4 team playoff for FBS iss ALL about money. I've said it should be an 8 tame playoff from the very beginning, even last year. Playoffs are awesome. Yes the 9th place team will be unhappy but I would have less empathy for a team on that bubble than for TCU last year or OSU t and Stanfors this year. What really puzzles me is everyone on this site who agrees with the talking head that 2 loss Stanford should get in over the 1 loss defending National Champions. I'm a pretty objective guy, but some of you need to be little bit more of a homer.
Agree. Buckeyes are in if Clemson loses. Stanford will not jump Ohio State. The committee talked about conference champs last year because it supported their decision at the time. One loss defending champs with a fan base that shows up gets in over 2 loss Pac 12 champ. Go Tarheels!
also completely disagree with the comments that there's no reason to come back for senior season. Too many busts in the NFL. Better be a guaranteed 1st or 2nd round pick or come back to school.
This is spot on. The coaching staff is not putting Braxton in a position to be successful, at least with the current blocking. Other teams have used the wildcat over the years with success even when the other team knew what was coming (Arkansas with Darren McFadden come to mind). The problem is that the wildcat keeps getting blown up due to poor blocking which is the same reason we can't seem to throw the ball down field.
It's the same guy, Tim Beck.
I moved to Cincinnati from Dayton 10 years ago and work with a bunch of UC grads. They all have the little brother syndrome and constantly hate on the Buckeyes. I will never fully understand it. Here is something interesting about Miami. My daughter goes to Miami. From what she tells me the vast majority of the students do not attend Miami football games, partially because the suck, but mostly because they are watching and rooting for the Buckeyes.
According to the link above, Urban has told Braxton that they are going forward with JT next year. If true, he isn't being given the opportunity to battle for the starting QB spot. I don't find this to be particularly credible.
Since Troy returned kicks and played a little running back as a redshirt freshman I would agree 100% that JT is further along in his development.
Noah Brown has had 1 catch all season. Urban is going to lean on guys that he has a lot of trust in these last few games. There is too much at stake. We aren't going to see any new faces on the field the rest of the season.
Alabama is going to lose tonight.
No. Not at all.
I don't think JT will have a lot of time. We need to move the pocket some in this game.
Change your user name please. You are not optimistic. Buckeyes win 31 - 17.
Fake the run and throw a jump pass. That play has been known to work for Urban.
YES. Agree completely.
I don't know that I believe that. No respect at all bu the committee. They have drank the ESPN/SEC cool aid. The loser of Az State and Notre Dame will have a higher quality loss than a OSU win over Sparty. Lowest rated 1 loss team not named Duke, and behind a 2 loss Ole Miss.
JT is a more complete QB as a redshirt freshman that Braxton was as a true freshman, probably as a sophmore also. But he is not better than Braxton was last year as a junior. Braxton had his bad moments the last 2 games, but JT has had his bad moments also. Braxton does have more misreads in the zone run game, but he can get away it alot of the time. I'm looking forward to watching JT's development over the next few years to see how could he will be by his senior year.
Unfortunately those 2 bad boys won't be playing Saturday night.
Meyer will use 2 QB's next year because the Buckeyes will be up by 35 points at halftime in just about every game next year. JT will get plenty of reps, they will just be in the 3rd and 4th quarter (kinda like how Saturday night played out with Cardale).
Because Braxton Miller will be playing quarterback next year.
Darron Lee, no question the biggest surprise.
Great video highlights of that Wisconsin game.
You are delusional. IF healthy, Braxton will be the starting QB and a team captain. He will lead the Buckeyes to a national championship. He will not be a Heisman candidate because JT will get a ton of playing time also. This is predicated on a full recovery early enough that his arm is 100%. Anything less and all bets are off.
