30% of the season, I believe. But I'm pretty sure you can't apply for it until your final year so it will be several years until we know if he gets this year of eligibility back

According to research by ESPN Stats & Information, Barrett has completed 67.2 percent of his passes over the past two seasons against five or more rushers

That stat is insane. I remember people citing production against the blitz has the reason Cardale should start last year, looks like JT has silenced some of those doubters

He couldn't really catch until his last year here (broken hand) and even then we never ran more than swing passes out of the backfield with him. Curtis Samuel is a legitimate receiving threat and creates a mismatch if you get him on a LB that Zeke didn't really create.

Nothing against Zeke, he's still arguably the second best running back in OSU history. But Curtis provides a different threat as a receiver than Zeke ever did

I can say with 99.99% certainty that an OSU team with 1 loss to Oklahoma in week 3 would make the playoffs. Wins on the road @Wisconsin, @PSU. and @MSU with home wins against Nebraska and UM, as well as a conference championship win over Iowa/Wisconsin would be impossible to ignore. The only chance an OSU squad with that resume misses the playoff is if the SEC, PAC12, and ACC all have an undefeated conference champ and Oklahoma runs the table the rest of the way

I think you'll see a lot of true read option this week. Game one JT looked like he had been instructed not to pull the ball unless it was WIDE open the other way, and game two in the second half it was a lot of designed JT runs. Assuming JT and Weber have their timing down, I'd bet money on their being a heavy does of the read option early to open up the play action deep ball.

Not really a fear, but I was convinced until I was about 14 that I was allergic to McDonald's chicken nuggets. Any other chicken nuggets were fine, but I was quite positive I was allergic McDonald's

My brother played against Spencer back in flag football as a kid. He dominated every game he played in. Sad to see he couldn't stay healthy in the NFL, he was one hell of a Buckeye

Or an Iowa fan creating a forum post about how this is a testament to the culture of an Urban Meyer football team
