But it is 6pm in Paris. VT game started at 2am and the bar closed at 5am. I personally hate waiting around all day for a TV game. But in person hard to beat the night games. Even though I have to motel it. Cinci 1st game in person this season. I am thoroughly pumped.

I thought Mason was a lock for the spot. The hiring of Jim Tressell was one of the best and riskiest moves. Who hired Tress and why doesn't he get more credit for it?

Two games this weekend that got me to thinking our young Buckeyes might have farther to to than I hoped. Rutgers over Navy and GT over VT.

Silver B,

Thank you for the clarification. Even after re-reading it 3 times, I missed it. I will have to give BuckeyeinToledo an upvote.

He has the big 5 conferences covered. I can't imagine what it's like for a high school kid to play someone that big. He looks 25 already.

At least if he doesn't come to OSU we don't have to see him every year. At this point in time, with the exception of Florida (for now), it looks like he is thinking NCG.

I think Braxton had to throw hard because he was usually so late. When I try to recall or picture a BM throw, two images come to mind: a deep ball or a down out with the receiver sitting down. Don't get me wrong. I loveBM. In my opinion greatest running QB Ohio State Buckeyes ever had. I just thought he did not possess the ability to throw to spots and let the receiver flag it down.

I think young JT is going to get better and better. Not unlike Conner Cook did last year for the B1G champions. Ouch still hurts.

Thank you SouthBuc. JT Barrett is just what the doctor ordered. Frankly these self appointed experts are wearing me out. The VT game is 11 days ago let go of it. You are just showing IMHO that you have not played football and certainly not QB. Even Peyton Manning looks bad when he doesn't have time.

Bucksfan, "it's the biggest worry I had (turnovers) when they announced a freshman would start after Braxton went down."

When Braxton started as a freshman I was worried he was going to get killed. He survived the Michigan State game so I figured he was a pretty tough kid. I am really impressed with young JT so far. I hope he stays healthy.

Why do the Networks keep showing those Guys. I find it embarrassing. Show the students. It is their time.

My senior year my Bucks trailed Purdue 35 to nothing at the half. Purdue in that era was one of the best football schools in America. It was QB-U. Three different Purdue QB's went 3-0 against ND in their career (freshman did not play varsity, they studied)

Ya! It makes me sad to see the demise of one of the best programs in the Big Ten. It really was 10 then. I think the B1G needs Purdue to come back.

Since I avoid watching as much SEC as I can! I watched Conner Cook's progression last year and I would say, IMHO, JT is well ahead of Cook at this stage last year.

I think JT is as smart as his teammates were suggesting.

You nailed that one, he drilled it between two defenders. It looked to me like Thomas didn't expect the ball to be there. The receiver when he looks for the ball, he should expect it to be there, and have his hands coming up. Great receivers, IMHO, always expect the ball to be there.

But that isn't what I want to talk about. I remember one receiver, I think it was Spencer or Smith, saved young JT an interception. It was thrown behind the receiver to the DB and our receiver didn't try to catch it. He reached back and punched it out of there. It almost went 20 yards he hit it so hard. Great play and doesn't go in the stat sheet.

"Yes, I believe Farris should've stayed on the DE, allowing the pulling guard to take on the inside linebacker, with the blitzing outside backer getting optioned."

What does that mean "outside backer getting optioned"?

And didn't Nate Holley take a bad angle on that play? Should have been a nice 15 yard gain IMO.

Also, I think we are going to be well pleased with our young QB by the time season is over.

I read somewhere, I think it was the book on B1G by the Michigan grad, that NCAA spends less than 1% of it's budget on enforcement. So it is basically up to the institutions to report on themselves. E.g. Cam Newton, Johnny Football, the Canes... Don't fess up then the under the table stuff is going to go on. Too bad in my opinion.
