Braxton is a terrific athlete, runner and has exceptional arm strenghth but the QB position is more than those attributes.  JT embodies what a QB is and should be.  His read option decisions are great. He goes through his progressions and with eyes always down field. His footwork is very good and last but not least, he is ACCURATE, he knows where to put the ball.  These are all things Braxton struggled with his first 2-3 years.  JT has picked all this up very quickly.   This offense is better off right now.

I went from wanting to crawl in a hole after the VT game to now wanting to climb a mountain...these young players and this coaching staff are really impressive right now.  I don't think I have ever seen big mistakes made turned into big opportunities so quickly.  The way this team can stretch the field horizontally and vertically is scary...not going to be an easy team to beat as the season progresses.

I liked our offense last year with Hyde and Miller being the go-to guys, but, I LOVE this offense we have brewing this season!  I'm having a tough time wrapping my head around how many players we have that can touch the rock and take it to the house.  Very exciting!

I hope we beat Maryland by 3 TD's.  GO BUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.S.

J.T Barrett is going to be a stud QB

How many teams do we play this season who can pull off a 46 Bear defense stacking 9 in the box?  I'll say zero.  VT knew they had the corners to do it and started installing this the minute they heard news of Braxton being done.  I'm not worried (and I have confidence we'll be much more prepared by the coaching staff to burn Mich St. if they try it).

Slow start...yes, but that was expected against this Navy team.  I saw a very fast, physically chiseled, talented football team on both sides of the ball.  When this Buckeye team meshes...watch out!!

PS - I personally think the most important thing I saw was JT Barrett's willingness to go make plays and win a football game despite his interception...very good sign.

I certainly understand the hate for MSU right now...that's my knee-jerk reaction as well, but, I for one like the added competition in the BIG.  Think big corporations in this country, if one is selling a good product and everyone else is selling the same product but it's garbage, then where's the motivation to make the product from good to great?  Competition will breed and motivate teams to do better in this conference, including our Buckeyes...can't wait until Nov. 8th.  I hope Sparty busts Oregon in the mouth - Go Big Ten.

This all comes down to coaching in my opinion...Michican't is down the last several years because of bad coaching (they still pull great recruits).  Sparty is up the last few years from good coaching/good recruiting.  Wisky and Penn State will both come around with Gary Anderson and James Franklin.  Let's be happy about great competition in the BIG...Ohio State will always draw great coaches/players.  It's time for the BIG to step up...Sparty is good, so be it.  Personally, I'm salivating for Nov. 8th, PAYBACK TIME!
