JT better mentally, Miller, when healthy, physically. This spring BMill's repair job blew up on a seven yard pass in practice. Any realistic expectation that it won't happen again and he is really going to be able to play the QB position? Time will tell I guess. Love the kid, hope second time is the charm, but regardless he needs to be on the field in some capacity, he is an amazing athlete. Why not work towards getting into the NFL as a WR, he could be a Megatron kind of guy (not as tall as CJ I know) and talk about YAC ... the way XBrax jukes ... man, that might be the ticket.
Not a fan of Franklin either but ... what league did our guy used to coach in?
Just messin' with ya bro.
Win out (so easy to type that ha) and I think the bucks are in. The VT game was a perfect storm, hopefully it will "blow over" when the committee realizes how young the team was and how far JT is coming in a short time.
A 6'4" 190 pound 4 star WR!!!!!
"TAKE CHARGE!" ... until Braxton Miller returns next year.
I KID I KID but honestly I wonder why Meyer assured the media that X-brax (love that kid don't get me wrong) will without question be the starter next season considering how well JT has been progressing and how well he distributes the ball and the accuracy of his passing. How does this affect the psyche of this young man who is laying everything on the line out there each game, is cool under pressure, and is winning one freshman offensive player of the week award after another. I'm interested in what others think about this subject if you care to help me wrap my arms around this situation.
Apparently Urban has stated that Braxton is definitely the starting QB in 2016. I wonder if that is a wise decision and how might that affect JT Barrett, out there every game busting his butt with no chance of retaining his starting position in 2016? Maybe a ploy to try to keep X-brax from declaring for the draft next season? As injury prone as Braxton is maybe platooning the two (which I am not a big fan of) might be a possibility.
Great breakdown Michael, wow, thanks! On a side note, I know centering the ball is a lot harder than it looks, but how do you snap the ball over the head of a 6' 5" QB LOL.
I'm far from a CFB expert, but after we got burned by Moore the first two times I was thinking "double him up and don't let him burn us a third time, make them have to pass to someone else"! Also, I noticed our safeties never seems to have the time to look back at the ball so they never had a chance to break up the pass. Kiel was the real deal though no doubt, some very tight and precise passing at times.
The Braxton Miller / JT Barrett situation IF it is a possibility next season could be problematic. Love X-Brax but don't see how you could bench JT if he continues likes this.
Exciting game and offense was awesome, just wish our safeties and corners wouldn't let WR's streak past them in the open field.
Mind-boggling amazing game by Elliott and I agree with him, I've never seen Rod Smith explode off the blocks like he did tonight.
I must have some dust in my eyes. BUCKS4REAL, my heart aches for you. I don't pretend to understand the nature of the universe, but I really believe she is on to the next adventure and of course you will cherish her memory until such time you will join her again.
I guess Gunner Kiel is technically a "new quarterback" but he's had some playing time was my understanding, but could be wrong about that. The guy is a gunslinger and the bearcats have a really good receiving corp. Hope Heuerman heals quickly, great asset to the team, although as someone else pointed out I think Vannet is a heck of a TE, call it 1A and 1B if you want.
Don't give up your day job TennBuck16. Just kidding, the results of that game was quite a shocker.
Well how about that ... only one B1G team lost this weekend.
Typical great insight by Ramzy. He's a national caliber sports journalist IMO.
Two weeks to prepare for the Bearcats, that's a good thing IMO.
Ya know, I think if we played Kent State BEFORE VTech getting the extra reps for JT would have put us in position for the win, it was kind of a perfect storm that benefited VTech. Oh well, onward and upward and big time props to JT!
Maybe after watching the VT game he thought "this team really needs me".
I KID I KID! Great news, hope he becomes one of the many star WR's the bucks have had over the years.
Condolences to the Kent State faithful on the death of Jason Bitsko, seemed like an outstanding young man.
All of our expectations about this young team were unrealistic. They'll get better as the season goes on and should be quite a force next season. Meyer has just started to get his recruits into the mix. We can still have a good season and play in a decent bowl game. I reserve my right to complain and be an arm chair coach, but I'm going to root like crazy for my team and I still feel good about the overall direction of the program.
As I posted a few days ago, OL is inexperienced, a new QB, a stable of unproven RB's and thin at the receiving corp ... this team is a work in progress. They will get better as the season goes on but the reality is this will probably be an 8 - 4 team that hopefully will end up playing well in a bowl game and loaded for bear next season.
I made plenty of mistakes at that age. Of course, as a member of the OSU football team, Marcus is under a magnifying glass and has a great opportunity most of us don't get. I'm a big believer in redemption and I'm rooting for you Marcus. Don't be afraid to get counseling if you need it. It's a sign of strength not weakness to reach out for help, I can tell you that from personal experience.
The only way I could get the CBS Sports Channel for AT&T Uverse was to upgrade from the U200 to the U300 package, which I get a free three month trial. I WILL be cancelling at the end of three months. Don't get me started on cable/internet providers, cell phone providers, pharmaceutical companies, health care insurance and hospitals, and oil and energy companies ... bastards every one of them and doing their part to destroy the middle class in this country. /rant. Go bucks ... stomp Navy!
