That Corey Smith section was pretty interesting. I know a little of the back story there but it seems like there is a lot more going on. Hopefully he can keep focused and become a playmaker on and off the field.

Yea I just saw that come through as well. So i guess technically they did reduce it considering the collective bargaining agreement states its a full year.

I know they are different levels of play (Conference wise not actual team) but when I went to Ohio University the games (football and basketball) were always free to students. I know it can't be that way at an Ohio State but it should be. The NCAA says they are in it for the school and the students well then actually do something for the students and let them watch the games for free.

Oh and have the playoff semi-final games at home stadiums since its for the kids and not the money.

That is correct. Although I am not sure if the suspension is retroactive to the date it was first announced considering it was upheld. I would think it was start fresh from today... which means he will miss out on all of training camp next year.

Not a knock on the OP or anyone else who has created a similar thread but what is the appeal of the depth cart (outside of finding out who is the holder). The depth chart will list 2 wide receivers but 6 are going to play. Same with running back, defensive line, secondary and maybe even quarterback and offensive line. I've never known the fascination with the depth chart but for those interested what do you generally look for?

I have been feeling the same way. JT and Cordell have been taking first team snaps since the Orange Bowl.

This article is pretty good IMO regarding new quarterbacks. http://www.cbssports.com/collegefootball/writer/jon-solomon/24679069/qb-revolution-new-starters-are-winning-big-in-college-football

Five of the final seven BCS championships were won by first-year starters: Florida State's Jameis Winston, Alabama's AJ McCarron, Auburn's Cam Newton, Alabama's Greg McElroy and LSU's Matt Flynn. First-year starters won just two of the first nine BCS titles (Ohio State's Craig Krenzel and Tennessee's Tee Martin).

Add in Notre Dame's Everett Golson, Oregon's Darron Thomas, Ohio State's Todd Boeckman and Auburn's Marshall, and nine of the past 14 quarterbacks to play for the national title were first-year starters. By comparison, only five of the 18 quarterbacks who played for a national championship from 1998 to 2006 were in their first year as a starter.

The Quarterback game in college football is changing as High School systems are becoming more advanced. This is the same reason rookie QBs in the NFL are more popular than they used to be.

I am not overconfident... although i think we win this game comfortably. But I think the worry comes from the uncertainty. We know we have the talent but a lot of it is unproven so far. I think it will pan out nicely this season but you never know.

Quick hitch screen. Trips to the wide side-- two receivers block and one drops back (probably Wilson) get the ball in some space right away. Help JT relax and gain 13 yards.

I have a feeling that extra 15 pounds will help him break some of those arm tackles. He could be in for a big  season I have a feeling.  

Comment 21 Aug 2014

I feel like the Pac-12 is always overrated. I generally like their teams and think some of them are legit very good but it seems like it is always a lot of offense that gets shut down when they play a legitimate defense. I do think though, from top to bottom they might be the best conference. Most conferences it seems have 3-5 really good teams then a significant drop. The Pac-12 this year seems to have 5-6 good but maybe not great teams. 

Comment 21 Aug 2014

Not only that, but I have a feel this team might have that "angry team" mentality that the 2012 team had in it. While they are all upset Braxton is out I can't imagine they are liking how everyone is writing them off now. If this team can get past some of the challenges in their schedule I think they could be rolling in the middle to end of the season.

Kenny G to Brax on Brax on Brax to J.T.

The Quarterbackin' Bucks should for a musical group.

Also, if I don't get a J.T. "I'm Bring Sexy Back" Remix featuring Barrett I'm going to be very upset.
 

Comment 19 Aug 2014

I feel like people are forgetting that this team (minus 1 very talented player) is still the most talented team in the league. Will it be more difficult? Sure. Do I still think we win the B1G? Absolutely.

J.T. as a RS Freshman is in the same position as Winston; Manziel; Marriotta and a lot of other QBs. Alabama has a new QB this year... as does Texas A&M and Clemson, yet nobody is writing them off.

Look at Rock Steady putting in some hours at the end of Friday... good work and welcome.

Also good news on Armstrong although it freaks me out sometimes when I think of a 2017 prospect. Just seems so far away.
