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.
I tend to agree that both Braxton and JT will play a lot. The outcome probably means that neither wins the Heisman, but who cares.
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.
I would say that Braxton and Terrell's stats are probably skewed negatively by their freshman seasons respectively. That 2011 team was terrible.
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.
Sometimes this site really cracks me up. So JT Barrett will start next year over Braxton (multiple Big Ten Player of the Year). He will then lose the starting position the next year to a redshirt freshman?
Braxton will be back next year, but JT will play a lot. All games will be blow outs. JT starts in '16 and '17.
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.
