I'm pretty sure Marion is always disqualified.  That might be one of the words that comes up when you google "Marion, Ohio".

I'm not as negative as most of you about Braxton as a QB as I think he might be the best QB in OSU history if he gets the chance to have a full senior season.  But pro scouts will definitely want to see some game tape with his surgically repaired throwing shoulder before putting their neck on the line along with team doctors.  The Dolphins passed on pro bowl Drew Brees coming off of that type of shoulder surgery.  It isn't far fetched to think Braxton would go undrafted unless he changed positions or had more game tape to prove he can still throw the ball with NFL velocity.

Redshirt is still in tact if they choose to use it.  Guessing they will since he didn't play against Kent State and Jamarco Jones and Marcelys Jones did.  If he starts dominating practice and wins a starting job they could change their minds but that seems far fetched at this point.

No I think the booing was more in support of the current players in their efforts to make the playoffs.  Calvert got huge ovations for stepping up and fighting Nash.  Also, I think it provided nice closure for both parties despite the heel turn.

He had a borderline all star type year which isn't by itself worth a crapton of money, until you add in that he is 22 and could still add strength to his large frame and get better at all aspects of his game.  If the Jackets didn't have the leverage they have then he'd be getting higher offers than what was reported.  But CBA's almost always favor the teams with young players (the veterans are the ones negotiating the CBA).

I agree the CBJ offers seem reasonable.  He probably shouldn't take the long term offers though since his upside is much higher.  I think the sticking point is the bridge offer.  If he lives up to potential he could be worth a long term deal at 10+M per year but he wants enough guaranteed money in the meantime to be secure.

Also if you are siding 100% with management then you have fallen for their media games.  I give the other side some benefit of the doubt since they weren't the ones badmouthing in the media.
