I am a Buckeye enthusiast with some good insight, and reliable information. I have bled Scarlet and Gray since birth, and a piece of me will always be with "THE" Ohio State University. I am also a huge Kenny Guiton fan and follower, regardless of his playing time "Low Key G" is a once in a lifetime player. Realistically I changed my NCAA 10 roster on xbox to start Braxton Miller before he ever stepped foot on the field, yeah I was pretty confident in him. Even more so, I cried when Ted Ginn Jr. was held from catching a game winning pass in the National Championship game, luckily for me, the crying didn't have to last long. Jim Tressel is a straight up Wolverine killer and will forever hold my respect and admiration. Regardless I can't imagine myself cheering for any other football school in America. The traditions this program holds are something that is not easily forgotten. Singing "Carmen Ohio" with the team, and band after last years T.T.U.N. game was an experience I will never forget!

Go Buckeyes

My expectations for this guy are pretty high, he looks like a really good QB in the making. He has a year of learning under his belt, so the freshmen growing pains may not be as obvious, but overall he looks like a Guiton. Dare I say that.

Cardale was flat out awful in not only the spring game, but also most games last year. Lets be honest. Every snap against Penn State he found some excuse to drop into the pocket and then scramble, I don't believe he attempted a pass when he clearly was set to do so. Never been a big fan, but hey if he can get the job done so be it. On the other hand I have seen a lot of good things from J.T. he has great mechanics and I thought he played much better in the spring game. Plus all of fall camp he has already been taking snaps with the first team, so its not like he is being thrown in there all of the sudden. Flat out we have to many playmakers on the field for a defense to handle. I don't care whose lining up at QB when you have guys like, Dontre, Heuerman, Curtis Samuel, Corey Smith, Mike Thomas, Zeke, Rod Smith, Marshon Lattimore, and Jalin Marshall, its going to be hard for any defense to stop those guys. Im really excited!

Honestly I think he is going to do really good. I mean he was the No.1 Dual Threat QB of his class, and have you seen him throw the ball? Yea I know Herman says he is a distant 3rd, as far as just flat out chucking one goes. But his accuracy and mechanics are flawless. Throughout the spring game I was shocked that he was a 3rd stringer below Jones. With as many athletes as we have he should have a plethora of guys to distribute the ball to. Yea he will have some growing pains, but I really like the looks of this guy.

Don't forget about Curtis Samuel! I have a feeling he is going to get some good playing time. A rotation to keep healthy legs between Eze, Rod Smith, and Curtis Samuel would tear a defense down!

Probably the best article I have read in months! Could not agree any more. Roll Hyde Roll. You will be truly missed. But I will be rooting for any team you play for on Sundays.

You just have to agree with the guy! In that he has an opinion higher then our as he is on the team. Just because he's on the team doesn't mean that he can say facts good or bad about the team. Its blatantly obvious to everyone in the country that aside for Philly (who is gone) our receivers haven't produced anything, and that really hurt Braxton's development as a passer. Brax is a much better passer then some realize, I mean just count how many times he stood tall in the pocket and waited and scrambled for an open receiver. Thats on the WR. Your telling me that that for 5-8 seconds we couldn't get a single receiver in the least bit open? Thats bad.... Coming from a teammate or not you gotta realize how bad that is!
