I would think the fact that they are splitting reps now could be very telling. They wouldn't practice that way if they weren't planning on running the offense that way at least to a certain extent would they? Or maybe they just wish to keep the secret for a bit longer while the media is involved. At least the wait is finally almost over!

Happy Birthday! So glad you started this site!

First of all, Braxton should be writing a book about all this. Imagine getting his entire story behind the scenes when all is said and done! I want to read that book!

Secondly, I love that pic of Price throwing the ball. I was a slob in high school football and it's rather unfair that when I joined the team I was never even asked to throw the football. You know, just to see if I was any good. Now, I am not good, however, I imagine there have got to be plenty of slobs out there that could actually be great QB's but we're just sized into being lineman and I think it's time we slobs take a stand! Nothing could stop a slob QB. Nothing! OK Rant over.

I am torn on the whole Columbus VS Stark County thing. On one hand, my high school, Canton Central Catholic, won a State Championship in the 'Shoe and that was awesome. But on the other hand I grew up in Massillon/Canton/Stark County and live in Columbus now and I want both of my "homes" to share the wealth!

I cannot stop watching that 85 yards thru the heart of the south play. The play itself is great enough but then to see those 2 Alabama girls, one with her little pom pom, now suspended in air, as her face changes in reaction to the dagger thru their hearts and just as she starts to break down the camera cuts away. I so want to see more of that but then again I don't know if I can take seeing a girl cry, even a 'Bama girl. Sooo awesome. Brings chills every time!

Look at what Barrett did in his first year as a starter and with all that PRESSURE he was under. Nobody knew how capable Cardale was, I doubt even J.T. had a clue, so the world was on J.T.'s shoulders last season. Now, he not only has the experience but he no longer has the same pressure, given that we have 2 way more than capable backups ready to roll. I'm torn. I think Braxton should start based on being honorable to what he's done for Ohio State, but I think J.T. should start based on being the most focused and balanced. Then again, I also think Cardale should start just so he can go out there and whup some ass on the rest of the B1G's offensive lines like he did with Oregon and Alabama. Ugh, I am glad I don't have to make the decision!

I don't see anyone sleeping on VT. But let's think about where the team was at when that happened (did it really happen or was it just a bad dream?). We had a whole slew of unknowns going into that game and the team had no choice but to prepare for Navy's craziness on top of JT's first big night game and good on VT for taking advantage of it. If they have any chance of pulling another upset it will not be by scheming and taking advantage of some inexperienced players this time around so I guess we'll find out what they're really made of this time.

I still say the Hawaii game is a potential trap if they come in tired. Hawaii has some speed to deal with and they have to play Hawaii less than a full week after playing VT. Not a great situation but I know they can do it.
