Like the tuxes lol.

Honestly, I could care less about JT's stats. Having such an experienced player like him in those situations was the most important thing. We are definitely going to miss JT but the season ain't over yet!

But these stats are some of the most impressive I have ever seen. Of his 6 incompletions 2 were clear pass interference that were not called and 3 were flat out dropped. The other was the ball to Johnny Dixon that just floated in the air a little too long. I am not trying to sound like a whiner, but did it feel like the officials were calling some insane BS against us and ignoring penalties for PSU? The Barkley run was a a block in the back on Arnette who was in position to make the tackle. How else does he land on his face? The PI in the endzone in the 3rd made me want to break something. Also couldn't believe they did not review the Victor "fumble" that would have given us 15 extra yards.

It was a privilege, that I will think about for years to come, to watch JT Barrett dissect Penn State "University" with the precision with which a cardiologist performs open fucking heart surgery. Thanks JT. Go Buckeyes!

He is the best QB in my lifespan at Ohio State.  He owns the record book.  He was THE MAN today.  My 13 year old son said early in the 3rd quarter that we will miss JT in a huge way next season.  I agree.

Ramzy for the win. JTB has always been that guy. Many believed, even in the darker times.

Some doubted, understandably... but have come back aboard the Captain’s train.

Some hated, and are still nowhere to be found. Wonder if we will hear from them again? 

You win with people.

It’s cute how everyone acts like the J.T. Barrett we saw tonight was the same J.T. Barrett that played against Oklahoma.  Whether it was him, the coaches or the receivers, something was broken in that game and early in the season. Cohesion takes time and we are reaping the benefits. I WAS A DOUBTER. Kind of sick of seeing other posters act like my judgement was completely wrong. I’m still not sure it was BUT I can say I am happy as shit that he performed the way he did tonight. I’ve never questioned his character or leadership and I have always wanted him to succeed. I hope he continues to shine and he leaves OSU as the most decorated QB in NCAA history. All aspects of our team have grown but let’s keep our chin and nose out of the air until we evaluate this season as it concludes. I’m excited for JT and I am also thrilled about our future.

I think that the "told you so" crowd had one collective point, and that wasn't that Oklahoma ('17), Clemson, and Michigan ('16) didn't happen. But, that Sparty ('14), Michigan ('14), Notre Dame, and Oklahoma ('16) did happen also.

He's proven capable of doing what he did tonight. 

HS
brutus0717's picture

Well said 3M. ALL of the above things are what make JT who he is. Is he a great college QB? Yes. Is he a future NFL QB? Probably not. But that doesn't diminish, in any way, what he's done as a Buckeye. Love me some JTBIV!!

USMC11917, I'll upvote you here....because it's never been that JTB supporters had a problem with doubters. He earned some criticism. The offense struggled often for two years. I disagree he was the main reason, but he was part of the mess. 

As we've said before... the stick with JTB/go in another direction is not and was never the problem. Doubting/differing opinions...fine. 

It's the haters who ignored all contrary evidence and had no answers when pressed past their tunnel vision trashing of JTB.

Pointing to where he struggled without ever acknowledging everywhere he was good. never addressing the fact that despite the championship run in 14/15... JTB was a better college QB than Cardale who beat him out in 2015. Disagreeing with Meyer, Wilson, and Day... plus a host of other actual football experts about the problems with our offense. Moving the goalposts of what would define success for JTB week to week.

Your doubts aren't the problem. The irrational hate was.  

You win with people. 

And so forth...

JT Barrett on the season through 8 games:

171-246 passing (69.5% completion), 2166 yards, 25 TD's and 1 INT

454 yards rushing 5 TD's

Folks, sit back and enjoy what is happening. It will most likely never happen again in our lifetime.If you didn't think JT should be running this offense, you were wrong. JT is legit. Period. End of story.

JT Barrett put the 2014 team on his good leg, and willed them to win in double OT against Penn State in Happy Valley. It was a turning point that season, and it was when I thought they could win it all. 

Tonight, Barrett did it again; but he did it against all odds, in the 4th quarter, down by 15, and he did it with his “weenie arm”. This is a turning point for the team. I believe they have the potential, once again, to win it all.

Ramzy thank you for sharing that Clarrett moment. I'd never heard that. And yes, JT is a little like Batman...he's the hero the Buckeyes (and fans) deserve, but one they've (some) never really felt they needed. In the end, he is needed more than any of us will ever know. Thank you JT.

Rings silence armchair kings.

The Krenzels, Cardales, Kerns, and Millers can point to to championships and undefeated seasons and their detractors immediately shut up. I hope J.T. joins that club and just taps jewelry anytime someone detracts. Shoot, I still maintain he and Braxton have as much to do with that '14 title as anyone.

JT is now in the Heisman top 3. Assuming he finishes the season strong and we win the B1G, he has to be a favorite due to his total body of work over 4 years, but especially 2017.  Heisman hype is officially on!

I didn't get to watch it. Haven't been able to watch OSU and some of the world series because of Fox 36 over the last month. Fox out of Toledo is holding sports (and fans) hostage for more money from Directv. I'll get to watch the replay today. Fox sucks! Fox is also a 51% owner of the big 10 network. You would think they would understand the importance of watching your favorite team....or maybe they do.

I'm in the same boat here in Raleigh. So I've been using the FoxSportsGo app when the Buckeyes are playing on Fox. If you've got an Amazon Fire Stick, you can even download the app and watch it on your TV. I saw no difference between it and watching on an actual "channel" - in fact, I kept forgetting i was actually "streaming" the game.

Last night was about oline and receivers as much as I was about JT. All three phases were needed down the stretch to pull of that incredible comeback.  JT got the protection he needed to deliver and he delivered as well as receivers making great catches with PSU defenders in their faces hanging all over them. It wasn't all JT. I don't care for the Heisman because it contributed as a distraction for us losing an NC. While Troy Smith was of receiving his hardware as well as other mandatory appearances afterwards, Florida was working hard towards shoving the trophy up his ass. It gives incentives and bulletin board material to the other team. I use to think that Craig Krenzel's late throw against Purdue and Germaine's game winning drive in the Rose bowl were my favorites but JT did it three times in a row. Just outstanding.

HS

It wasn't all JT.

So true. In addition to receivers and O-line, it was also the coaches calling a good game.

All involved brought our level of play down and all brought it back up.

It was never all JT.
