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...
Wouldn't you rather peak as a dynasty?
Good to see that some underclassmen are making waves for starting time. Almost as if the loss has given them the confidence to show they can make a difference. Excited to see how the roster changes over the course of the year. With the amount of talent we have anyone could be a breakout player.
I agree with this.. I think our defense would do fine for four quarters if they didn't have to play EVERY down of EVERY quarter. I don't care how well conditioned you are. When your offense isn't producing it takes a mental toll on the defense as well. Why work hard if your offense can't take advantage of the opportunities you give them?
It's way too early to start making these predictions. Especially in a sport where kicking one field goal short means a ruined national title chance. Anything could happen by the end of the season. You might see multiple teams with one loss in that play off. The only thing that can further hurt our chances is us..
Any Buckeyes fan worth his salt knows the records and rosters get thrown out the door when it comes to The Game.. I can think of one blow out in the last 10 years. It's ALWAYS competitive.
Was the sauce the bitter tears of 107,000 fans? Otherwise I think this was a light punishment.
.... and no Braxton Miller. I don't get it. He's easily our best player.
Hey guys.. was Spence suspended for the VT game?
Glad kudos were given to VT and more particularly Brewer. Tough kid. We just simply got outplayed. They came ready and we did not. It's sad but over now. Let's show improvement through the rest of the season.
Was it Rod Marinelli?
