I was never a supporter of the fire fickell nonsense so please don't lump me into that category. And I'm not saying fire Beck is the answer. I was more so reiterating how import Herman was. Although I'm not going to lie, Beck's resume for developing QBs doesn't give me the utmost confidence.

One got beat to Virginia Tech, struggles terribly against Penn State, and had a hard time against Minnesota and Michigan. Let's not forget 2 of the 4 were home games. The other beats Wisoncon, Alabama, as Oregon handily. I love big numbers as much as anyone, but I can't really believe this is as big as a debate as its become. A couple things Cardale can do that Braxton/JT can't IMO.

1) throw deep out routs. When combined with the deep ball, corners safeties really have no other options than to play deep.

2) get and extra 3 yards after contact which was HUGE in the championship run. Can think of multiple times Cardale picked up an extra 3 yards to get a 1st down and extend the drive. This is demoralizing to a defense. The biggest one was avoiding the safety against Alabama.

3) throw in tight windows. This takes exceptional arm strength. There was throw where Cordale threaded the needle with a laser for a large gain vs Oregon. I remember thinking to myself, wow, VERY few college/even NFL QB could make that throw. Again, loosens up the secondary whic creates running lanes. See Zekes productivity the first 12 games vs last 3 (the last 3 having better defenses) and that's all you need to know. 

Im really struggling with the fact people would consider benching a Big 10 championship QB, and a Nationional Championship QB. Both items Braxton not JT never won. Sorry, but this is a easy decision for me...

When OSU beats Oregon, we will have beaten 3 top 10 teams (Oregon, Alabama, Michigan State) and 4 top 15 teams (3 above + Wisconsin). TCU will have beaten no top 15 teams when the final rankings are revealed. Good luck next year TCU

Like the hire. For goodness sake, the fact he could post a winning record at Oregon State is nothing but amazing. Their stadium holds, 45,000 people (7,000 less than Indiana). In fact, I think Indiana and Oregon State are about on the same level in regards to college football jobs. Would you be impressed if the head coach of Indiana was 93-79 over 13 years? I sure and hell would be. I think people need to give this hire a chance. He's going to be able to recruit toys he never had in the past. Also was the head coach for the Charges which will help get some talent to Lincoln.

If Miss St. beats Bama only 1 SEC team gets in the playoff. If Miss St. loses to Bama and runs the table, we have two SEC teams in the playoff. Have to root for Miss St. to beat Bama. If they do, they could still get upset by Ole Miss and lose the SEC champ game. Go Miss St.!!!

I love being a Buckeye. Sky falling for us turns into top 10 classes. Michigan can't even beat Rutgers...

I was born, raised, lived, and continue to live in Ohio. It's going to take a lot more than some smug California liberal to change my opinion on the great state of O-H-I-O. This article can kiss my A$$! Go Bucks!

Braxton needs to read the blitz and get his WR into the appropriate routes. Until then, he is an athlete playing QB, not a QB who's and athlete
