I do think it matters who starts... I have never seen a team that it didn't matter who started at QB, or really had three QBs that could get them through a entire season unscathed... I am not sure Cardale or JT could do it... not sure if Brax can stay healthy for ten straight games either... I really think at some point, they will all play... but who starts is a big decision!
all of that just to find out how wrong I think you are about EVERYTHING!... Miller also stayed, and there is not much chance he plays another position... I think it will be hard to beat Miller out in practice... but you could be right... we will see!
I disagree... for this offense, Braxton clearly will be my choose.... if he is injury free, then his arm is good, and he makes good decisions with the ball... if we were a passing team that liked to spread it around through the air, I could see another QB starting... but were not... we are a QB option team that likes to throw deep while running crossing patterns underneath... in the NFL you throw it alot... not in the TEN...Woody once said "only three things can happen when you throw the ball, and two of them are bad"
as we have seen... being a neighboring state to a football rich state as Ohio is, as we have seen... can be a benefit... now the coaches and school have to get after it... a team full of 3 star kids can give you a chance to beat almost anyone...
when someone is moving on because they are sought after, they go out like Herman... with somewhat of a choose to make between multiple places... the others all slipped away quietly... Coach Johnson and Coach Ash was by design, not because they had a opening...
I think this will be his best year... we have more talent at that other end then people want to say because it is unproven, but I think teams will see early that this line has the potential to be great and Joey will shine... I think Jason Cornell(once the #1 player in his class) will see the field and shine... by mid-season it will be clear to the nation that Washington is a first round pick... and anyway... this year Joey is better then last year, and he will be unblockable.
as will as Urban has been recruiting from day one... shocked is pretty strong... surprised...maybe... but shocked?.... we are Ohio State!
my response to those who come to this site to talk anti-Buckeye talk and wish our two time mvp of the Big Ten go play for Alabama can go away....yes! Not a question of not agreeing because people always disagree here, but to wish our 3 year starting QB goes and play for another team is grounds...
in the end when we repeat and Brax is holding the Heisman, we won't want any apology... no "you were right and my stupid ass was wrong"... keep your my bads, and why you thought such a anti-Buckeye thought in the first place.... just go away and don't come back!!
tell that to LeBron... again... how much were your dreams, and hopes for greatness worth?... maybe a supervisor or management job at GM?... just asking... maybe he feels he can be the next Ronnie Lott... it does not have to be a one or the other... and to just say education should come first always gets a amen.
alot of schools was offering him a college education, so to say that like he had to chose between education and football is wrong, if he is healthy he could and should be able to do both... and at 18, how much were your hopes, dreams, and potential greatness worth?
lets be honest... because you can't call offering a healthy 18 year old star(where he comes from) football player to give up has dream because you offering to pay his way(the same as 20 other schools)... if he is healthy, then we was wrong... but hell... nobodies perfect... lets move on!
13 season... the bowl game was played in January of 14.
I think Cooper can be special and may get big time as a true freshmen... Jashon Cornell I think will start next year, and Nick Bosa and Cooper may be starting by years end... after this year their will be alot of new starters on the d-line and don't be surprised if these three guys step up in a big way... and if Gary signs... well... WHO HAS IT BETTER THEN US...?
Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Elliott... and a damn good job... maybe you should get started on a couple more... your room is on me!!
until 2016.... that maybe even better....!!
i do think next year both Cooper and Bosa, along with the Jashon Cornell may all get major reps, if not start... I know thats bold but Cornell is a must play, and I don't think Cooper can be blocker at his size and speed... we could be looking at a D-line as good as any we have ever seen... these guys can recruit, and then coach them up better then anyone... this is history in the making...
to be clearly the man that will knockout anyone that dears to climb in the ring... The Undisputed, Undefeated,40-0 w/ 40 knockouts... Heavyweight Champion of the World... that is unmatchable...!!
well... as asked, I traded Tress for Meyer.... isn't that the question?
now Dev.... just drop the mike and walk away....!!
sure they will beat us someday... and so will Iowa, and Nebraska... maybe even Purdue... maybe... be that doesn't make them relevant... they might break the top ten now and then, but their championship days are over as long as we have something to say about it... we will put our foot on their neck and keep them down for a decade... THEY WILL RUE THE DAY THEY EVER HEARD THE WORDS..."THE OHIO STATE" !!!
the only people that seemed to not want Braxton as their QB was some Buckeye fans... that has always been my problem... some here seem to like other QBs, so they want him to change positions... HE IS A QB... he will probably start, but if he doesnt let him go out on his own terms... we as fans own him that... GO BUCKS!
Harby is a good coach, and they will compete... to many times they upset us in the past... this game should be #1 and we will always need to bring are a game... and if we are undefeated at this time, that entire state will get in line to sell their first born for a win against us... make no mistake... that is the biggest game on our schedule, and you will feel that way by mid November.
