Agreed, I didn't suggest that Braxton or JT would be used in the same manner as Tebow and Leak. I simply stated that Urban isn't opposed to using 2 QBs, neither of them have the size of Tebow but both of our QBs sling the rock better than Tebow ever could.

 Braxton and JT could and probably should both see the field next year, in what capacity that's up to Urban. But I do believe Urban will find interesting ways to work them both into the offense. It would be a disservice to them both if he didn't.

I'm excited about the prospect of using them both and truth be told I personally hate 2 QB systems, but I like both of our guys skill sets. If their strengths are leveraged in a way that keeps defenses on their toes, it benefits us and it's a win win situation.

There is no doubt in my mind that there will be a quarterback controversy next year. Although it will most certainly be media driven.

We all know Urban is not opposed to running a 2 QB system, both players bring different strengths to the table. I'm giddy with the prospect of how Urban intends to use them both individually and potentially them both being on the field at the same time.

Opposing defensive coordinators will not be sleeping much in the weeks before they play the Buckeyes! 

No one has forgotten about xBrax. Hell I can't wait until next year, if Braxton decides to return like he said he would this team is going to be on a whole 'nother level!

They were turrible (in my Charles Barkley voice)

Comment 26 Oct 2014

The play calling was def reminicient of the Clemson and Championship game. Plenty of room to get better, at the end of the day we survived and escaped with a win.

Comment 24 Oct 2014

His arm strength is good enough for our offense. I haven't seen a throw that he couldn't make, it's more about timing (some late) which will get sorted out as he gets more reps. Oh yeah and another point, if the dang receivers stop the drops (very catchable balls) he'd prolly be leading the Heisman convo and not be a darkhorse candidate for the Heisman.

The sprinkler dance done to perfection, by an absolutely hot chick. I would love to upvote this +1000

Comment 30 Aug 2014

After next week, the concerns will become more evident. Right now I see a tale of 2 halves, the 2nd being night and day above the first. I'd like to see 4 more quarters before I make up my mind. My eyes will be focused on the offensive line, secondary, and linebackers next week. I think JT will be a very capable starter as long as the line isn't acting as a revolving door.

The coaches need to uncuff the defense and offense, the O play calling and defense schemes were a bit puzzling at times today.

Comment 30 Aug 2014

I'll take the win. I get the feeling that both the defense and offense is being handcuffed by the coaches. They need to let these guys get loose and let the talent shine!

Comment 30 Aug 2014

hopefully they have this corrected.

Comment 15 Aug 2014

Rod smith was shelved primarily for not holding onto the ball. It's hard to capitalize on your talents when you've put the ball on the ground so many times, it's all about trust. He has to regain that trust and be dependable first.

"His preferred style of play has resulted in two national championships and two undefeated seasons. Those high marks came with three different teams – Florida, Utah and Ohio State."

Should've read..... three undefeated seasons not two.

Urbs had an undefeated season coaching Utah in 2004.

Great post Ramzy. I think that these are thoughts that a great many of us have expressed over the last two excruciating loses.

There is a lot to be said about not over thinking it. I'm from the old school thought of keep it simple stupid, so getting fancy and cute on the football field has never resonated with me. I can't say that we would have definitely won those games if we continued to feed Hyde, but I sure would've liked our chances!

I wish that I could ^ Vote you.

Simply no. Not satisfied, right now. Albeit a successful season @ 12-2 (which is nothing to sneeze at), I had higher expectations for this year's team which I'm sure everyone else in our locker room did too. I am though very proud of the players for giving their all on the field for our enjoyment.

I should feel more satisfied right now. I know though after more time to reflect on what this team has accomplished and what the future has in store next season these feeling's I'm sure will change for the better.
