I know it's cool to act like we don't understand the love affair between the AP writers and Alabama, but I think I can help to put it in perspective..

When you run roughshod over college football for the better part of a decade, routinely churning out top recruiting classes, NFL 1st round draft picks, All-Americans, and championships, you tend to build up a little bit of 'credit' with the voters. 

In this world of complete objectivity that you are talking about, where none of this matters, Northwestern is the #1 team in the country, and Utah is a close #2. We are ranked where we are because of the residual effects of greatness, and so is Alabama.

Alabama will go away when they go away, but they just put the hammer down on a top 10 team this past week. I have no problem with not ushering them out of the top 15 after one loss. I will expect the same respect for the Buckeyes when our dynasty starts to wind itself down.

I feel like maybe Cardale's throws are more late than short. He has a big arm.. I just think he needs to get it off faster. If he waits until his receiver has three steps on his guy, it's probably already too late.

Cardale will get things in rhythm, and then Zeke will start to dominate. I like Cardale in the mid-range last week. He seemed like he was making good reads and hitting his open receivers. The long ball is where he seemed to still be hesitating too much.

They thrashed Oregon in Eugene, which you could say is far more impressive than MSU escaping with a win vs the Ducks on their home field. Then you throw in another quality win over TTUN, and I would say they definitely have the best resume in CFB. 

I think a few of these writers feel like you look at resume and that's it. I don't think Utah is the #1 team in the country, but it's not that crazy.

I'm with you on that. I think JT is a cool dude and handles pressure well, and obviosly he is a tremendous leader behind the scenes being a captain as a sophomore. But all that being said, I never really saw him picking defenses apart with the passing game. I always looked at him as more of a game manager with very shifty running ability. Don't get me wrong, I think he did an amazing job last year all things being considered, and to elevate himself into heisman contention is a reflection of his accomplishments. I do however think that the team was elevated to to new heights with Cardale in the game.

I could be wrong but I think that's what Urban saw too. I have no complaints if we roll with JT, but I struggle with the logic that we are losing so much in the passing game with Cardale in there. The numbers just don't support that. We have fast guys that can get deep, we just need the O-line to give us time for that to develop.

It is odd that he feels like he has to keep explaining himself. It's almost he has an entire fanbase of arm chair coaches clammoring about what a mistake he is making.

it's pretty clear that Urban has made his decision on who he feels gives us the best chance to win. I'm not going to pretend to know if he is right or wrong, but I will default to the guy that gets thrown in discussion with the greatest coaches of all time. (Nobody even brings me up when those discussions get started).

it seems to me that Urban is only worried about making the wrong decision. If he rolls with his guy, and god forbid we should happen to lose a game, then oh boy... That spells trouble for the 3 time national champion. The stakes are high when you go against a large portion of the fan base. Especially these JT fans.. JT fans are no joke.

I hope Urban isn't making in game decisions to try to appease some of us fans. We are all Buckeyes, and honestly if Urban came out tomorrow and said that Collier gives us the best chance to win, and he is the guy now, I might be a little surprised, but I wouldn't question it.

Let's go win some football games and support who ever is taking snaps behind center.

Until this kid can call himself a champion, let's not compare him to #13.

For all the s--- storm that Clarett once had circling around him, Maurice was also a kid that showd up every day and worked harder than most to be the best.

He was, and always will be a Buckeye. He gave me too many good memories to compare him to this guy. 

That being said, I also don't want to criticize this guy too much either. We don't know what he's dealing with in his own mind. I would hate to find out that he is struggling with depression or bi-polar or something. I hope he finds himself a place to play ball and be happy.

I see what you're saying but I kinda want to know what his opinion is on the status of these recruits. 

If Birm can't say it, who can? This article to me is more about everything Buckeye recruiting, good, bad, and ugly. If Birm starts holding back on scoops, opinions, or information, I would probably have to go somewhere else.

He's just being honest, and he is usually right. In this case, I hope he is very wrong.

I think it was more the "but everyone knows he's a capable starter." 

You do know that sounds like you're saying that not everyone knows that Cardale is a capable starter.

I'm sure That I am going to get like 90.3% downvotes for this but god damn you JT fanboys really are obnoxious.

Comment 20 Sep 2015

I think that is his point. I think you chance losing with anybody at QB. I know it seems so simple, one comment above pointed out, "just name JT the QB and we win out." I'm just not convinced.

While the world was busy clammoring for JT, it's like they didn't notice that Urban actually did name a starter... And it was just one guy. It just wasn't the guy that most of us, with all of our infinite football wisdom, thought it should be. I just hope Cardale and Urban haven't been hearing the clammoring.

Well, we already established that JT is the leader and Cardale is.... Ugh.. I'm so sick of this QB situation. I 100% blame this, and the departure of Tom Herman for all of our woes.

Herman is gone, we can't control that. This QB debacle is controllable. I don't think either of them has looked good this year and I think we will be fine as long as we just pick one.
