In defense of callers... they're not professional media people and speaking on the radio is tough to do, let alone in front of Urban Meyer. Just natural human reaction.

I weeped when my mom got me my N64 back in the nineties. Super Smash Brows, Griffey, and NFL Blitz are all classics (that are actually still playable). My beef with GoldenEye is that it's so clunky it's unplayable. It redefined the first-person shooter AT THE TIME, but it's definitely not shit compared to today.

That said, I am decidedly pro N64. Anybody can get it in Super Smash Bros, or the other classic you forgot to mention: MarionKart!!!!!!!

It also looked at its best (against the best competition too) with Cardale Jones at the helm. My stance is the same as Urban's: Cardale Jones hasn't played great, but there are bigger problems facing the offense right now (like lack of outside blocking, inconsistency of the offensive line, etc. etc.)

To remind people that Ohio State's offense had similar offensive struggles last season.........

/ridicules me for perpetuating QBgeddon.

/posts 600 word comment perpetuating QBgeddon, which is about twice as long as the words I actually spilled.


I'm pro-Cardale, but more importantly, I'm pro-Ohio State and whatever Urban Meyer thinks. Do you think Urban Meyer, a man who is literally consumed by the sport of football, hasn't thought of all this and weighed every one of your points (plus more)?

Yet here we are. Makes you think, doesn't it?

The point of the article (or my writing) wasn't to tear down J.T. Barrett. It was to simply remind people that the offense didn't look great for large parts of the year. Hell, didn't Ohio State trail against Indiana last year until Jalin Marshall got #bizzy? Somehow, stating this fact equates to "tearing J.T. Barrett down" and "perpetuating QBgeddon."

I am a great blogger.

Thanks for the spot, ZJ. Amended.

No hate. Billy Joel's greatest hits just seemed like a CD a grandma would prefer over her medication. I don't know where these things come from, I just write them down.

As Urban Meyer stated numerous times last year (and this year): If a QB plays well in this system it's a product of those around him.
