My guy was Thomas with the comments he made after Clemson. Wilson did quite well for a Freshman with limited time to learn the offense.
Braxton also said he was 100%, so there is coach speak and a coach repeating what a player told him. Bit of a difference
I hesitate to use the 2011 season since he had realtively no guidance or coaching, the top offensive players missed many games and he was playing on pure athleticism. So sure you can use MSU, but he did rally the team from 17 down against the best D in the country. As for Clemson he led them to 35 on a bad shoulder
I will go Darryl Baldwin at RT. His play +/- will have a huge impact on the offense.
I'll say Guitonish because the coaches say he is, there is a possibility he could be better because he took the majority of snaps in the spring and knows he is starting with two weeks to prep. KG was special because he would be considered a closer in baseball.
I have never seen use of the word "crux" so much in my life the last few days.
This isn't really a knock on ability, its using the players you have. It would be no different than running a wild cat formation from time to time.
Well Shit. I did not realize there is already a topic posted. Nevermind
Not sure if anyone mentioned this, but does anyone feel that the current QB situation parallels Meyer's 2nd season with Florida? Minus the expeience Leake had, Barrett is a similar QB and you have Jones who could fill the Tebow role on short yardage.
Here is what we know about JT... He was one of the top D/T QBs before his injury in HS, has been in the system for over a season, and was recruited personally by Herman. Bauserman was a 5th year SR who only touched the field because TP was suspended and Braxton was a Freshman. Bollman was the most generic play caller and produced underperforming lines, the QBs had Zero development from Siciliano. So the major difference is development of the back up QBs who had the majority of the snaps in the spring and summer because of the real possibility that Braxton may get injured during the season.
OSU didn't butcher anything, the rehab was set by his doctors. Operations are never the first resort and this is why because you just never know after they are done. Hence why pros get more opinions from other doctors
Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?
I know right! Herbie is a Class A dope with adding the record to the tweet.
I O!....not to leave you hanging. JT was recruited by Herman so there is a reason why he is here. The debate was who could lead if a midseason injury, well the injury is now with time to prepare (more) and not the game on the line. I foe one would like to see what he can do before we just assume we are doomed.
Nutty Buckeye goes by a different name on here because someone else has Nutty Buckeye as their name and there is a Hit the Couch on here, not sure if its the same one.

Ah yes the espn blog days
Meh, I was more disappointed from the drops by WRs. The QBs didn't look great but when its there got to hold on. The D looks good though.
Not saying you shouldn't be skeptical, but talent wise we have the players despite the injury to Miller. Warriner is one of if not the best OL coach so I am not too worried considering they face the best DL in practice. We do have play makers on the edges along with good RBs and JT was highly rated recruit chosen by Herman. The biggest issue keeping OSU out of the playoff is not really the injury, its weather or not the D has improved by OSU standards. If it hasn't it does matter if Miller was fine or not. I guess I looked at this question wrong as could they win it? Yes, they have the talent to....It really depends on the D for me.
Jones has been in the system longer than JT and recovering from an injury his first season last year is why he was behind. By all accounts he has caught up and understands the system which is why he has moved ahead.
I'll say yes being that despite the injury OSU still poseses the most talented team in the B1G. I felt that when KG came in at times the team as a whole played better because they had to push harder knowing the didn't have Miller's play making ability to lean on. We don't know what we really have in JT, but the offense is designed to get the ball out to the playmakers and let them do the rest. We may lose out on some highlights plays from the QB but may gain more sustained drives and still put up points.
I always bought used due to them being pre-highlited and containing humorous pictures etc drawn in.
Does fireworks count?
michigan is so bad that now they defend the App State loss on the espn board. What a f'ing joke they are.
