Kyle - Covering OSU this week for a friend's blog.  I'm sure you don't mind, but wanted your permission to hyperlink this article.  Context will be more or less with regard to the position switch.  Thx. Great article!

My thoughts exactly in this case.  What is difficult to do is compare the two, however.  Our offense was so potent in the final 3 games and up against much stiffer competition that one could easily argue that it was directly correlated to CJ.   Another could counter w/ the fact that we don't have Devin Smith this year and that the Bucks simply clicked at the right time.  I personally believe, due to the larger playbook and getting through his reads, JT is going to win the position but there will definitely be situations in which we utilize CJ. His size and arm strength are two things the defense has to adjust to when he comes into the game, and it may back the DB's up enough to let Zeke get loose.  It's very possible to run a 2 QB system now, and IMO, very likely.  I love the move, and love both of our QB's.

When did I say decent offensive player?  I said has a "decent" outside shot.  That's the best part of his offensive game and it's better than Crafts.  He's already a big liability offensively, the Cavs don't need a bigger liability.  I would love to see it, but I also think it's a dumb hypothetical move that would not benefit the team.

Wait a second. Craft, my favorite Buckeye baller in recent history, is not close to the offensive player Delly is. Delly, though not considered a threat in the finals, was a decent 3pt shooter throughout the year, and has a good mid-range floater that he hits at a high percentage. I would venture to say Craft is likely the better on ball defender for sure, but he's even more of a liability off the ball on offense than Delly. If he could get to the cup like he did in college ball, blowing by defenders at ease, then maybe I would put him in the same offensive category as Delly. But we have yet to see. Still think the comparison is as close as we're gonna get, but it needs to be said -- his offensive game is going to hurt him until he's garners respect on that end.

In general, I will agree with you.  That is to say that I can see where the added "benefits" of these "carb bombs" don't always outweigh the caloric increases, especially for someone who is not well-versed in nutrition, or someone who pays no attention to their diet.   However, for those that do, I would recommend Chipotle over McDonalds 100% of the time, especially if protein sources are the desired options at both places.  Could be subjective, though.  Agreed.

If The Stunning Mrs. Vance wants Chipotle, a bowl as you describe is they way I roll.

Good choice, IMO you get more meat if you order the bowl. 

However: 

But there are plenty of folks in line at Chipotle who are ordering the rice- and beans- carb bombs I mentioned earlier, usually with extra cheese and sour cream.

My point is that they have created this halo effect using the fear-mongering mentioned elsewhere in this thread, but they are in their most common form no "better for you" than McDonald's or Wendy's, and in some cases maybe worse.

First of all, what in the world are you talking about when you refer to perfectly nutritious food items like rice and beans as "carb bombs"?  Carbohydrates are extremely essential in a vast majority of people's diets.  I'm in no way attacking you personally, Andy, it's just astonishing to me how many people out there believe that Atkins diet (low-carb diet, or any fad diet for what it's worth) BS is anything more than...well... BS!  Does cutting carbs help it prevent a small bloat, and help you lose weight?  Well, in most cases, yes, but this is because carbs are over consumed in nearly every meal we eat, and reducing or eliminating them will, in turn, reduce our caloric intake on average.  Thus, the weight loss.  Don't believe the hype though, carbs are great for energy, muscle recovery (for those who train), and water retention among a few other things.   It's all about calories in vs. calories out, and eating nutrient dense foods (whether or not they have carbs) is always the better option!

Chipotle's ingredients are definitely healthier for us than most fast food joints.  You can get a burrito, filled with proteins, carbs, healthy fats, and veggies with vitamins and minerals, for under 1,000 calories easy. And, the food is in no way worse than that joke of a burger joint, McDonald's (or Wendy's).

I'm a traditional guy, normally.  But, I can't lie, new uniform designs ALWAYS get my click.  Guess I'm interested?  I know I'm in the minority, but I would love an all-black jersey with scarlet numbers, bordered by grey (or vice versa) and traditional stripes on the sleeves. Not something I would want to wear often, however.

He's a FREAK, that's for sure...  But, of all things, JT's footwork and touch in this highlight reel was damn impressive.

This articulates my thoughts exactly, just better than I could have done.  Well said AD.  Welcome back TP - wishing you the best.

Excellent post OP. 

Any time my daughter (2 y.o.) see's someone in red, football on television, or hears sneakers squeaking on a basketball court, she looks directly at me and says "BUCKEYYYYESSS!!!" with her arms raised above her head.  ...She then gets a treat.  "Training"
