The games are won and lost in the trenches.  If the O-Line does not improve a lot and quickly and steadily and continuously throughout the year then OSU has big issues on offense.

Seriously.

Comment 01 Sep 2014

I agree that it is possible that Barrett will be a very effective passer, which time will tell for sure. 

Braxton Miller is a run first, throw second QB.  This is a style that is more effective in the college game than in the pro game.

All three of them can carry the mail.  If I had to rank them based on the Navy game, it would be Samuel first and Smith and Elliot tied for a close second.  All three of them should see game reps.

Wilson is not a running back per se, his position is different, but he is much improved and needs to be involved in the offense on a regular basis as well.

Ramzy:

You have a gift as a writer.  As an Ohio State fan, it is a blessing to have you on 11W writing about all things OSU and those associated with OSU.  This article is Pulitzer-Grade.  Thanks.

All of this sounds very good.  If it is accurate then it is good news.  We can be certain that opponents will show as much in the way of confusing looks as possible knowing that this is an inexperienced QB at the college level.  We will soon know how all of this plays out.  

Comment 20 Aug 2014

There is no guarantee the Braxton Miller will ever play QB again.  This type of injury to the throwing shoulder is not a lock for being rehabilitated to the level that it needs to be for him to play QB in college.  Having said that, I love a good comeback and I hope that it happens for him.

Comment 20 Aug 2014

I predict one loss would make it difficult for Ohio State to get in.  The reality is that there is too much SEC bias.  You will hear this line or something similar "a two-loss SEC team is better than a one-loss team from any other conference" and ESPN will pimp the SEC hard, like always.  

Comment 20 Aug 2014

I would settle for a win in the opening game and then take them one at a time.  QB is a vital position in the current offense and to expect to make the playoffs with a totally fresh QB is not reasonable.  Nothing is impossible, I grant you that.  

Comment 19 Aug 2014

Losing the QB at any time is bad.  During the season would have been worse.  The throwing shoulder has to be demonstrably 100% or the opponent will camp on the weakness and overload their defense toward the weapons that remain.  Time to get someone else up to speed to be the starter if the worst happens and Miller cannot go.  

Comment 16 Aug 2014

If there is only one "most important player" then the defense will not be strong enough to win a championship.  When a program like OSU is in contention to win titles, there are several most important players involved, not one.  That's just how it works.

D-Line talent is good and getting better in all positions.  Having said that, Joey Bosa is something special, and he got my vote. 

Comment 01 Aug 2014

He likely didn't think that it was a serious thing.  A lot of guys hurl during summer conditioning and it isn't so much a macho thing to just deal with it as it is more just something that happens.  If dying on the practice field was a common event from heat that would be one thing, but everyone is hot, really hot, and you just work through it because it preps your body for the early season games.  I don't fault him for not thinking it was a life-threatening event at the time and asking for help sooner.

Mr. Stringer was an emotional player and a clutch player.  I have a lot of great memories of him.  The homecoming game against Michigan State when we drove down the field to win it at the end, and Korey standing on the field at one point and waving both arms to the crowd to stand up and cheer was one of my favorites.  He definitely was an emotional leader on the field, something you don't see that often from a tackle.  A very unique individual.

1975 Brutus looks like he is sporting an expression that is similar to one of  W. W. Hayes' expressions.  It is also similar to one of Neutron Man's expressions.  

Just sayin'....
