NASCAR doesn't use the same car setup for every track.  The car that runs well on a short track isn't necessarily the one for a long track.

The Buckeyes have the same kind of flexibility.  The coaches have an awful lot of flexibility with game planning for the particular opponent they will be facing.  Of course there is always the question of "Whose team is it?"  Which QB is the undisputed leader of the team?  Last year the decision came down to the offense running a little better with J.T. at the wheel.  As Urban has said, it is not about them (the QBs), it is about the team.  Which one makes the offense run best? 

This is a great time to be  a Buckeye.  I expect a fun season full of surprises.  Sit back and enjoy it.  The Tailgate party has already begun.

Miller is a world class runner who is also a better than average passer.

Barrett is a great decision-maker and field general who can run and throw with the best of them.

Jones is an M1A1 Abrams tank with a howitzer for an arm.

Pick your poison.  Who ever had three Maxwell watch-listers at QB?

And in case you haven't noticed, there is Zeke - only the best RB in the country, four returning OL starters from one of the best OLs last year, and a WR corps that is the envy of most. 

Expectations are through the ceiling - and they should be!  Boys, don't let yourselves down.  We fans will have other opportunities, but you kids on this team -- this is your only opportunity to be the best ever!  Take advantage of it.

Everyone followed their reads.  The misdirection (Vannnett pulling to the right, Marshall and Jones going right) worked its magic. Ryan was focused on Zeke. As noted earlier, the chip block coupled with Zeke's speed, strength, and balance made a good play for a first down into a big play for a TD.

Most "Critical" play calls are made in meetings during the week.

I remember Herman overriding Meyer during a game  by reminding him what they had decided to do in a particular situation.

The question is whether anybody but Herman has the discipline to stick with the plan.  I would bet on "Yes."

Which witch is which? Which which is a witch? Switch which with witch and get switched for switching.

VT's Defense looks like it's for real - great personnel and a coach who knows how to deploy those weapons.

Other than TE, their Offense looks less than awesome. 

Blacksburg will be rocking, so we better bring our "A" game.  Buckeyes by 14!

When I was a kid, my dad enrolled me in tap dance lessons to help me develop "quick feet."  That lasted until the dance instructor said something about my pretty legs.  Le Chuck will never have to deal with that embarrassment.

My training table begins tonight.  I'll eat 4 PB&J sandwiches and drink 3 glasses of chocolate milk every night before going to bed.

I need to transform this fat 66 year old body into something sleek and fit for battle.

How long before I can walk-on in Columbus?

Picking one is not dissing the other two.  There are three skill sets.  Miller brings an excitement factor into play that the others don't. 

As Urban says, "the QB is a product of the players around him" -- but having B. Miller as the 11th man on the squad puts the other team on alert.  J.T. and Cardale may be able to win as game managers, but Miller can intimidate as a game breaker.

Part of the fun of being a Buckeye FAN is being able to sit back and watch, knowing we are going to win but not knowing just how it will happen.  We speculate and create all these incredibly high and unrealistic expectations, then watch as the Coaching staff directs the players to exceed even those.

This is a great time to be a Buckeye.
