My last name is Verrilli, yep. 

I do not know an Austen, but that's crazy that there are other Verrilli's out there. I've never seen it show up!

I don't understand why you get downvoted.

I hate that team up there, but you are one of the more informational posters on this site - regardless of loyalties. I apologize, and feel that I speak for the sensible posters on here. I appreciate the angle you provide, and assuming you aren't just the biggest bullshitter in the planet, you seem awesomely well-informed. Upvotes given and *uck *ichigan.

He would be so easy to hate in AA! I would actually love this move for them. Well-known guy around the country, could possibly get the program going, but he's a total JACKASS.

I don't understand what coaches see in Philly as a return man. Mediocre speed, not very shifty, and he's obviously a head case when it comes to decision making. I always thought he was a great route runner with decent hands, but he's not a guy you try to consciously get the ball to.

That being said, it is really cool as a Panther's fan to see him catching passes from Cam. This receiver unit really needs help and Carolina is probably one of the few places he can find the field. Good for him, not sure if it's for good for the team yet.

'92. You can do the math.

Heisman candidate, record breaking, Rose Bowl MVP QB that could have also started for our basketball team?

1. Troy was the perfect QB.

2. TP was the best all-around athlete to ever enroll at tOSU.

3. Krenzel was a flawless leader and decision maker on the best OSU team I've been alive to see.

4. Braxton is yet to be determined.

I'm not saying Curtis Grant should be tossed aside like a used condom. I agree that he's improved, but Raekwon is the future and he needs to see the field. A lot of fans just want to see Curtis off the field, I'm not one of them. I'm one of the fans that believe getting our future starting MLB some snaps for a possible championship run next year would be a decent idea.

I honestly think that JT and Braxton are as contrasting as Tebow/Leak. There are minuscule similarities between JT and Brax, because their respective mindsets on the field are so completely different. JT is a calm, drop-back guy that can throw receivers open, Braxton is much more effective in chaos mode - running around, dodging, not necessarily looking downfield.

Check this out, Braxton would be the X-Back and Barrett would be the QB:

Well for one, VT plays Georgia Tech every year, so they have to know what assignment football is. Our option and RO games were stifled for the most part. Secondly, everybody we face is going to play a radical scheme to stop our attack - Wisconsin's been doing it since Braxton arrived. Finally, there's only so much offense you can install in the first 2 weeks of the season. Not to mention the portion of the playbook you had to replace due to Braxton's injury. 

Unfortunately this isn't basketball, bench players aren't going to be at the same playing level as starters immediately, due to limited reps. So all of these new starters are just now getting first team volume reps. I'm almost positive that any ranked/decent team we played in the week after Navy would have beaten us. The coaches didn't have enough time to install an offense, prepare for Navy, prepare for VT, and also prepare for adjusting to attacking a 46 bear. I know it sounds like I'm creating excuses, and I am to an extent, but there were A LOT of variables working against us coming into this season. And ESPN can shit talk our schedule all they want, but I don't think many teams in the nation played a harder combined first two games.

Anyways, we aren't nearly as good as we will be. You can't maintain that previous level of play from losing half the team, but I think eventually these starters will be better than last year's squad. I doubt that happens this year, but next year with the return of everybody + Brax. Should be fun.

This isn't going to get DVd because it's strongly opinionated, but because it's wrong.

Anytime you have to do something in front of 105,000 people, things become a little more difficult. Some players perform better when the gameday uniforms are on and everybody's watching. These games give the coaches the opportunity to identify these players for future teams. It's more about resolve than talent when it comes to heading to EL and coming out with a W.

They probably feel like they don't have to prove that they're a Buckeye, because they don't.

Comment 13 Sep 2014

At least he was in position to get the call against him.

Grant would have been running to catch up after the TE made the diving catch.

Comment 13 Sep 2014

Or you could open your eyes.

#5 is around the ball every snap that he's on the field. It's a limited sample, but the film will speak for itself.

Raekwon will be playing significant minutes by the end of the season, the coaching staff won't make the Vonn Bell mistake twice.

Comment 13 Sep 2014

This would be genius. Viper.

The coaches wouldn't do it though.

Comment 13 Sep 2014

Well he wouldn't have to face real defenses. So there's that.
