Look i played sports all my life uptill 5 years ago. I played football, wrestled and Baseball for the school. When i was with my friends we played basketball, tennis, golf and was at the pool swinging. The funny thing is all my injurys always cam in the noncontact sports. even when i was in the US Army the only time i would get hurt is in noncontact sports blew my ACL out in Basketball during PT. Got my shoulder in a company softball game but all the time I played football i never tgot a major injury and that is the same with wrestling. People judge sports on the freak injurys but do not look at the more common ones. When the sport is caoched right and played the right way you do not see the injurys you do when some one is coached the wrong way or told to hurt some one to get them out of the game. Alot of coachs forget that they are the molder of young minds and it is ok to teach kids to be agressive but you need to be clean when you come to hit. Most coachs these days are after a win and forget why they are there. What needs to happen is we as parents need to check out who is coaching the kids and are they teaching them the right way. If you do not know about something ask someone. But what i am getting at is if the coach keeps the game clean the injuries are not as bad.
All what we need to do is enjoy what is going on right now and watch JT play like he is till the end of the season. Leave this topic alone and wait and see what Brax wants to do about it. We do not know what is going on with him and his shoulder you never know he might just decide to go ahead and make the move to H-Back to save his shoulder or if the doc say hay you can get a good Carear out of it then we might have a QB comp. but it all depends on when he is cleared to come back. If he is not cleared by the end of the summer Urban might ask him to play H-back while he gets in game shap but also let him take some snaps like DW as a kind of wildcat play.
Lastly let the MAN heal up Befor we start with all the stupid QB Comp / 2 QB's systems cause if he feels like he is not going to get a fair deal one of to things are going to happen and neither are good.
1 He hurts it agian and is done by pushing it to hard to get back.
2 he gets mad and leaves.
No that kid will probley get so deep in the weight room they will move him to another position.
I agree with you if the game is a blow out get him out early in the 3rd QTR that wy get gets enough game reps befor MSU. the more gmae reps he gets the better he will be.
Not just the crowd noise but the OFF. did not make any adjustments they just tring to run the same plays till they tried the wild cat. They did not even call for a play action either. The DEF. did how ever make some little Adjustments in the secound half but you would expect your O to score more than a goose egg.
I agree an the funny thing is if you look at UK roster it has a good bet of OHIO boys already on it and they are starting to do so damage in the SEC to Might need to slow them down. If UK wins the title then there will be even more that leave.
Why not ask the guy from PUR. how it feels to be in front of the Zeke train?
But yet we won the game againest ILL. with only putting the ball in the air what was it 3 time or so and that was with Braxton at QB. Braxton is a high speed version of Tim better passer, shifty and faster runner, he just is not a power guy like Tim. I really hope that Braxton gets his passing on piont because all the stuff that he went through for Ohio State he does deserves the chance but we will see. UFM will not risk losing either one of these men that is why it will be a problem.
What you forget is that UFM has already won a Title with using 2 QB's and whos to say he would not try it again. Yes i agree with what you said about two QB's.
Heisman and B1G Freshman and OFF player of the year would make it really hard to say someone else is the starting QB next year. sounds like next year could be a 2 QB system.
I would agree but it is nice to see that the buckeyes are getting some good props
It would be funny to trun the game on and see 70% of the fans setting there in gray and watching the game.LOL
To answere your question about can he recruit you only need to look at what he did at standford. Plus he does have an NFC chaps ring to flash and standford did do alot of damage when he was there.
The one thing you forget is that they go to OSU to compete for the spot they want. They do not go there to get it given to them, when spots are give then the O or the D starts to play like crap because they are not sharp. When you have to compete for what you want then you work or tail of to keep it and that makes for better practices and also better games.
Their is no tone setter for the Off. and the DEf needs 4 QTRs
can some one tell me why we tried to force feed a freshman that was not ready to step up, you do not drop a TD and expect to bring the ball back to them. that is like a RB if he fumbles the ball you pull him and put the next one in there. The bad thing is they did not try to get the ball to the tightend at all where was the SR WR chances only seen a few and you can not take the top off a DEF that set 30 yards deep. you got LBS hanging all over the QB because you are not playing in the center of the field so the can blitz at will. Calling the one screen to DW and that is it we got beat tring to do the same stuff and being predictable. This is not on the kids this was plain out coaching that is it. When you Leave points on the field you deserve to get beat.
Leave him alone and let him heal. I would rather have to deal with the 2 or 3 QB monster next year then burning a red shrit this year. Plus while he is rehabing the shoulder it will also help in the fact of his passing game, so do not rush him back and lets just ride this storm out.
What everyone is forgetting is that it matters who the lose comes against. Frist of all if we lose we are out right now for sure this is why. A lose to sparty you can not hang with the top 10 you do not need to be there. If we lose to any one else they will hit us with you could not even beat so and so and your confrence is week. I hate to say it but until more teams in the B1G stand up and start to kick butt then any team from the B1G has to go unbeaten.
I was one for calling for the head of Fickell but the more that has came out. I will say that it was a break down between the 2 D cord. cause whiters was running the soft back end. If you guys think about it when we had haycock and fickell togather yes it was bend but do not break but the WR where not always getting free releases of the line.
