I wanna go back to Ohio State
To old Columbus town,
To the stadium to hear the band,
By far the finest in the land,
I wanna go back to Ohio State
To old Columbus town,
I wanna go back,
I gotta go back,
To Ohio
Ohio, Ohio
The hills send back the cry [O - H!]
We're here to do or die [I - O!]
Ohio, Ohio
We'll win the game or know the reason why!
And when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of booze!
And we'll drink to old Ohio,
'Til we wobble in our shoes!
Ohio, Ohio
We'll win the game or know the reason why

Baltimore is going to need to replace Tyrod Taylor at some point, and that might be a nice situation for TP to fall in to (this comes first because I'm a Ravens fan). The Rams also definitely need a QB, and maybe TP could really give them a shot to do some different and dynamic things - this would be an IDEAL situation for him IMO. Very little short term commitment from the Rams, huge upside, and the ability to replace a large chunk of salary if things shake out well in Pryor's favor.

I figure the crazies will get me one day for something. It might as well be this. At least I feel I'll have earned it.

In all seriousness - good luck Braxton. Take care of your body, heal up, and get ready for whatever come next in life be it the NFL or (less likely) a final year in scarlet and gray. You are a great ball player, and more importantly a great man. Be a leader in the locker room and continue The Chase in a new capacity.

Sure, they have a shot. Maybe not as good as before if Braxton is out, but who knows. But The Chase continues no matter who is under center. Trust UFM. Trust the other men on the team. Trust the return of the Silver Bullets (who are probably more important anyway). #IBelieve

I agree - I just don't necessarily have faith that the NFL will take a shot on him (especially in the early rounds) without seeing how a (probably) twice surgically repaired throwing shoulder holds up in a game. It would probably be better for him (financially as well as developmentally) to redshirt if he can't go this year.
Personally, I think Braxton, assuming he recovers, has star potential in the NFL. But I'm not entirely sure he'll get that shot if he doesn't see the field for the Good Guys again.

Neither Jones nor Barrett are scrubs who should be starting for MAC teams. They are guys who were highly recruited and come with a combined 7 stars depending on which scouting service you use. Jones had offers from Penn State, TTUN, Illinois, and Iowa among others for goodness sake. If Braxton is injured and done for the year, we're in the same boat as if he had left for the draft. Trust the recruiting, trust the coaches, trust in the other Buckeyes on the field. I believe we can still compete for a B1G title and a spot in the playoffs no matter which one of our guys are running the offense. My fingers are crossed for Braxton to recover and be his amazing self and go on to do great things, but I also believe in this team and UFM. Eleven days. Still excited. Let's Go Bucks!   

Comment 19 Aug 2014

Hoping the best for Braxton's future. If he can't go this year, the Buckeyes should still be fine - and I'll watch every game no matter what. That being said, if he's going to miss significant time, I hope he decides to use his redshirt, heal up, get his Heisman and championships in 2015, and get a good slot in the Draft. I'd hate for this to be how his OSU career ends. 

Whatever happens, and whatever decisions are made: wishing a speedy recovery and the best of luck to Braxton.
