PI is as good as a catch in the NFL

There is no stopping this. Every media outlet and fan is going to ask the players who they think the QB should be every chance they get. Get used to this. Its only January. We have 7 more months if this untll they start playing games again.

I suppose this has more validity than the Top 100 Recruiting Rankings that people obsess over - at least everybody has actually seen all these guys play football. 7 top 100 guys sounds like a damn good class to me!

The Alabama win shuts up all the Buckeye haters for the foresable future. No longer do we have to hear how we can't compete with the SEC. That's massive not just for the fans for things like recruiting and future playoff positioning. Ohio State no longer takes a backseat to any program in the country. The Alabama game proved it and the National Title cemented it. We are now the program everybody else gets compared to.

Braxton wouldn't necessarily have to beat out Marshall and Wilson to see the field a lot at H-Back. Unlike QB where you really only use 1, there are a variety of different ways to get these guys on the field. Not only can you rotate them, but these guys are all versatile enough to line up at several positions including WR, Slot, RB and even QB. As it is I expect to see Marshall and/or Wilson lined up out wide at reciever more next year in order to get the best guys on the field, and that practice would only increase with Braxton in the mix. You can be sure that there would also be special "wildcat" packages with Braxton at QB as well. Not to mention the dedense would be forced to watch for trick plays from Braxton no matter where he is lined up. You can rest easy knowing that Urban Meyer will find ways to get our best players the ball. And there's no doubt that a healthy Braxton Miller is one of our best players, no matter where he lines up!

NFL teams use 1 QB. They keep a backup QB they hope to not have to use and the third is usually not even active. There really aren't that many jobs available for NFL QBs, and if you're not the #1 guy you almost never play. To top it off most of the QB jobs out there are already full and very few if any teams are filling them with run first QBs like Braxton. There are a whole lot more RBs and WRs in the league than there are QBs and teams are always looking for more. Its true that not a lot of teams use an H-Back quite the same way Meyers offense does, but the skills it requires do translate to the NFL. An elite, game breaking athlete that can run and catch with the football smarts to read coverages and line up in multiple positions? Any team in the league can find a role for a guy like that.

I was just about to make a Braxton comment, but I was gonna let it slide

USC hasn't been national title relevant for nearly a decade

They don't have to "go away from Fox" to sign a big deal with ESPN. The first tier Big Ten rights are already with the ESPN networks. It would be very easy to continue that arangrment if the money is right.

It also interesting to note that 5 of the 18 games came in the last two seasons under Meyer's smash-mouth spread run offense. Just over a year ago people were talking about how he never had an thousand yard rusher and now his tailbacks are smashing records.  I expect we will see sever more games added to that list in the seasons to come.

Very interesting. I was going thinking about starting a thread asking if anybody had ever attempted a 3 QB system. We've seen many 2 QB systems work with varying degrees of success (usually not so much) but a 3QB system has to be pretty rare.

Hard to say for all of college football, but its probably the best Ohio State class since 2002 (Troy, Santonio, Clarett, AJ Hawk, Mangold, Carpenter, etc etc)

A lifetime suspension for a common recreational drug like X is way too severe. I understand being tough on drugs but a year long suspension already sends a strong message. He should be allowed to return for next year. Other players have come back from far worse mistakes. Luckily for Spence he is talented enough to go straight to the NFL but for another player pushing him out of college football completely for a problem like that could really mess up his life.

TE - Vannett, obviously. He was basically a starter already and his role will increase a lot. Baugh slides into the number 2 role, but we're not really a 2 TE offense. They really only used 2 TEs because Heuerman and Vannett both deserved to be on the field a lot. It will be interesting to see if Baugh earns signifigant minutes. RT - Jamarco Jones. Lots of options here, and I would love to see Chase Farris grab the job for his senior year. But Jones looks like our most talented tackle and talent usually wins out. I see him at RT next year and then moving over to LT after Decker leaves. WR - Thomas obviously starts and Corey Smith is in line for an a big role increase. Theres a ton of young guys who havent played much and you can be sure at least a couple will break out next year. Dixon and Brown are a couple I'm looking at in particular. But also don't be surprised to see one of Jalin Marshall or Dontre Wilson split out wide more in order to get the best players on the field. DT - Shutt and Munger are the obvious contender for Bennett's spot. I'm very interested to see what happens with Michael Hill as well. No matter who wins the starting job I expect to see a lot more rotation at that spot this year. DE - Holmes...Lewis...Hubbard...Someone Else...this one is tough to call. Lot of talent with a lot of youth. I also expect to see a lot of rotating here but if one of these guys can emerge as a real force opposite Bosa it could be the catalyst for another national championship! MLB - Raekwon McMillan, Obviously. He's the future of the middle of our defense for the next 2-3 years. CB -Gareon Conley is the favorite here. I think Reeves's best position is the nickle and he'll stay there while Conley seems to be next man up on the outside, although with some young guns nipping at his heels.
