No way to to have both? Sort of an All-time QB situation? I guess in this case all-time TE.
Side Note: There's more Ohio State fans in Athens than Ohio fans.
Not this year especially. Considering the Bearcats are a top 5 team compared to ttun
It's a hard knock life for us Cincy buckeyes. Best of luck in enemy territory!
Thank god this bye week is over
I'm thinking shutout. Hard to be a 5-star quarterback if you don't have the time to throw it. Our D-Line has the strength and talent to get to him quick. Barring any stupid mistakes I think our defense will do much better than anticipated.
Devin Smith - 128 yards
Yeah I'm not to sure where all this KentUCky business came from either. I've been a Cincy native my entire life and most of the people I know hate Kentucky.
With that being said, we do house a lot of Kentuckians as most of the jobs NOT on a farm are across the river. Either way the trash talk coming from UC has been annoying the hell out of me ever since 2002. I would love to see a massive beating Saturday to put them in their place. Just hope to see more UC based trash talk from my fellow buckeyes rather than lumping the entire city in with them.
Now now... Why are we assuming THIS is their rock bottom? I'm hopeful they can do much worse.
You the man Urban
Hmmm so we might see Cardale Jones more? Of course, he also said that about Kenny Guiton last year.
Yeah but one thing a quarterback needs to throw a lot of yards is time. Gunner was getting a good amount of time to throw against Toledo. I doubt our D-Line gives him nearly as much.
Yeah but that was also a much different offense far more supportive of the run and not nearly as many weapons as what we are going to have next year. I gotta say if I was Urban and had to choose between benching a heisman hopeful in his last season and icing my future starter in his 2nd season, I might try and develop a system that uses them both. But who knows.
I'm with this guy. Develop JT's arm to perfection and put in Miller as a receiver. You'd have no choice but to double cover him. Look what he does with his legs from the pocket. Can you imagine him catching a ball on the edge or in stride in the flats?
I'm picturing a world next year where we have a two QB set up like what Urbz did at FL
As long as it's not us it's okay? I failed to see anyone's "Massacre" t-shirts last weekend. Lets draw the line somewhere folks. It's not about Penn States crappy fan base. It's about who's expense the joke is at. Let's just grow up and support our own teams in a respectable manner. This is football not politics.
Agreed. For example : "Ohio State TE Jeff Heuerman caught beating porn star Lisa Ann" vs. "Ohio State TE caught spanking porn star Lisa Ann"...... Two VERY different conversations....
Yeah but how often was he throwing to his 2nd and 3rd looks? I think running the 3 verts so much was their attempt at just trying to win with sheer speed since JT wasn't getting any time to check down. It was clearly a gamble they lost.
True. And who knows what type of plays they are letting him run in practice. He had a record tying game and operated with minimal mistakes. He's got two weeks of practice before UC so we may even see some more complex stuff in that game, but I think it's going to be far more contingent on the O-Line than on Barrett.
Your standards for being impressed scare me. I don't see much wrong with 3 losses in 3 years. Especially after inheriting a broken team.
Honestly if you watch VT highlights he is still having trouble with his reads. Now granted it didn't matter much with the penetration the VT D-line was getting but I think he is just still easing into making good reads. They are probably starting him off more simple until he gets comfortable and working him up to the triple options.
It's amazing what a decent QB can do (even as a frosh) when he has time to throw the ball...
