Bishop had a great take on Twitter that I agree with.  Highest ceiling and lowest floor for him.  Could totally tear it up and put himself in a great spot for the NFL or could flame out without much middle ground.  I hope he does well and torches Saban twice!

I want a fall Saturday in Ohio Stadium..

I would say Cincy has the lowest floor.  At least LSU is on tv every week and will have 20 scouts at their Pro Day.  If you stink it up at Cincy you're basically in the CFB abyss.

Good luck to Burrow.  Things never worked out for him to become the starter at OSU, but he worked hard on the field and in the classroom, and represented Ohio State well.  Hope he does well at LSU and eventually realizes his dream of playing in the NFL.

Go Bucks!

Not sure why, but obviously there's something there he saw and liked. Best of luck to you youngster. 

If you die before you die, then you won't die when you die. 

HS
andretolstoy's picture

I guess at LSU he's not really bumping a senior from his QB spot, which can make you feel like a bum. And, his first six games are: Miami, Auburn, Ole Miss, Georgia, Alabama  AND THEN Rice ... 

So, he's going to get his chance right away. 

If you die before you die, then you won't die when you die. 

HS
BrutusB's picture

Orrrr...he didn't think he could beat out a three year starter.  I love that everyone just assumes that the guy is a future HOFer.

HS
andretolstoy's picture

Weeeelllll...he could definitely beat out the Cincy QB. 

If you die before you die, then you won't die when you die. 

HS
BrutusB's picture

We really have no idea if that's true or not.  Burrow completed 7 total passes last year, a majority of which were in a game where we beat UNLV by 33 points.

I'm definitely rooting for the guy, but he's still an unknown commodity regardless of what our fans keep saying.

HS
andretolstoy's picture

C'mon man. He was #2 or vying for #2 for the past two years behind one of the most successful Ohio State Qbs in history and neck and neck with Haskins who is a four star QB and played well in Ann Arbor. 

We actually know how he's going to do. 

If you die before you die, then you won't die when you die. 

HS
kmp10's picture

Had Burrow or Haskins started last year, the offense would have been infinitely more feared and far more complete. As for LSU...it's one of the last programs of those considered 'big time' for which I'd care to play, and Orgeron is nothing more than a cajun version of Brady Hoke, imo.

When I die, sprinkle my ashes over the 70's 

HS
stxbuck's picture

Good take all around. LSU has not had competence at the QB position since Jamarcus Russell ate his backup.......good luck to Burrow but he is not stepping into the best situation, imo. 

I was watching a replay of the scUM game last night and was shocked at the difference in Haskins and Barretts arm strength and pocket poise/decision making. Heck, Haskins even had a couple of nice runs..........

HS
Extramedium's picture

I'd guess this choice is more about wanting to be on the national stage more than thinking he can't beat out a QB with a 57% completion rate and 27 interceptions at Cincinnati.

It really doesn't take a football genius to see he's got the goods, just watching the way he performed in his limited opportunities on the field and in spring games. He runs and throws well and makes good decisions.  I always thought Haskins had the higher ceiling but there is a clear reason Burrow was in a tight competition for the starting spot at OSU.

HS

Yeah, because he should be the starter here.

Career stats for Burrow at OSU as a backup were 29-39, 74.4% comp, 2 TDs, 0 INTs, PE 153.

Burrow has the 3 highest PE's in the Spring Game over the last 5 years.

Although Burrow was never given a chance to prove what he could do at OSU in prime time, he's has a pretty remarkable resume in non prime time.

Actually, watching games like Clemson in the playoffs, MSU 2015, Iowa 2017, um 2016 & 2017, IN and MSU 2016. The fact we never saw Haskins or Burrow tells me all I need to know about the "chance" given to them. I'm not a JT basher and his poor performance in some of these big games was not entirely his fault - but c'mon - someone else should have been given a chance to see if they could do any better.

HS
Spider1944's picture

BrutusB, unfortunately Joe’s body of work came in the last two “Spring” games. I understand it’s only a spring game. But what else can we evaluate him on? I thought he was the best quarterback in both games. In 2017 with minus 1.1 seconds to throw he demonstrated a quick release, and an ability to see the field and finally he is a very accurate passer. I thought he easily out played J.T..

In 2018 I thought he slightly edged Duane Haskins. Once again showed his accuracy, ability to go through his progressions and the arm to go deep.

When he committed to Ohio State I was a bit surprised. But after watching him play I am not surprised. He seems to be a bright and confident young man. I think he has that it factor. 

Unfortunately he was behind J.T. and now Haskins. Who most of us think will be a one done, a la Malik Hooker and Marshon Lattimore. 

I expect him to succeed at LSU.

Wow, half a game and his talent/future has been determined. I get he looked very good, but we really don’t know how good/bad he will end up being - just as we don’t know what Burrow is capable of

HS
buckeyetjn80's picture

Exactly..all these dudes putting Haskins in the HOF for a couple good throws against scUM. What these ignorant fans failed to see is his downside...that hopefully will get fixed. If you watch his entire body of work, spring game included, you should notice his completion % stinks. Maybe it's because his biggest problem is working through his progressions..which he fails at more often than not. He locks on to his primary target way too much and then forces throws that aren't there. Like I said, hopefully he improves but you look at guys like Burrow who looked all the way around and you can see why fans wanted him more..myself included. His completion % also reflects this..I know its a small body of work but nonetheless.

Love the game over any team fandom.

HS
Braxton'sSpinMove's picture

He only had a bad completion percentage in one game and that was the most recent spring game in which he tried to force a few of the throws into very tight coverage. Haskins is very accurate and has amazing touch to go along with his cannon of an arm! I don’t know where you get your stats but they certainly don’t back up your argument when it comes to Haskins. He will be great. He’s a once in a life time type of guy and anyone with a decent pair of eyeballs can see that.

What is this data you speak of??? Haskins has a 70.2 completion percentage, 9.9 yds per completion and a 4-1 touchdown to interception ratio... what are you guys talking about? Look it up... these are actual in game stats and not spring game statistics.

HS
buckeyearchie76's picture

Was it not Mr Haskins who entered the game in the second half and drilled holes in a decent Michigan defense.  That alone gave him the edge in the quarterback race for this year.  Pretty big stage to step on to prove yourself.  But he did and and earned his spot as the leading candidate to replace J T GO BUCKS!

CincyBuck's picture

Agreed with BB.  Another Joey B. looked like a stud in Spring Games.  Now we post his “passing chart” as a frequent joke.  

That said, I’m surprised by the news.  I think Burrow could’ve started at UC — especially given the Fickell connection.  And, TBH, I was hoping he’d go to UC and torch the league so that I could watch him do so from a close seat.  Put differently, I think he had a better chance of torching UC’s league and getting drafted than doing great at LEU.

But anyone who can guarantee he’s a stud QB is kidding themselves.  His live game action has been virtually nil. The number of QBs who were can’t miss (and flashed great in limited time) is a long, long list.  I hope he isn’t on that list, but we don’t really know.

Quarterback play in that conference is usually pretty weak.  Considering the defenses he'll face, if he's pretty productive he'll definitely get a shot in the NFL.  This was always probably his best option.  Their skill players are usually pretty good.

Yeah, I seem to remember playing them in 2002 (you know the year we won the NC), it wasn't a blowout then. The Bucks were very lucky to escape with a win. Many thought they (should) have blown out Iowa last year too.

It's true there is no way to predict the future but I don't understand why anyone would try to discredit anything Joe Burrow has done. I never saw anyone say that he was going to be a HOFer. He is a good QB that almost got the starting job at OSU and probably would have had it not been for an injury. 

I say good luck Joe. I hope you do well at LSU and make it to the NFL.

He's going to go bet on himself in the hardest division in college football with a crazy head coach (who may not last 2 years). That almost seems riskier than battling it out with Haskins through the fall.  Kinda wish Cincy got him for Luke's sake and because he's an Ohio kid, tho. 

However, the job appears WIDE open and LSU has a lot of NFL talent and the new OC runs an offense that will fit him well.  

Plus, we get to say Jeaux Burreaux. That's sweet. Can't wait to watch him play there.

HS
ShawneeBuck74's picture

Exactly my thoughts.  As much as it pained me to write it. 

It varies year by year, but the SEC West is the current king of the Hill mostly because of Bama making the playoffs every year.

The B1G East is very close and could be #1 this year. OSU, PSU, MSU, and Michigan are the good teams, but the rest drop off pretty significantly. And TBH... Sparty has bad years and Michigan is still a paper tiger.

The haters on Haskins don't like him b/c he doesn't fit into Urban's narrative for the QB position-keep your mouth shut and run the read option into the line 25 times a game. Haskins has been nothing but respectful and well well liked amongst his teammates, but running the read option w/ him constantly would be like taking a Ferrari mudding on the back 40-you might see some crazy things, but ultimately you are wasting something transcendent-his arm-on a task that can be done more efficiently w/ a different vehicle. 

Urban obviously loved Barrett to death as his QB, and the Urban uber-alles crowd is locked into a cycle of justification for every decision he makes. Any success (and scheme changes) that Haskins might experience this year might reflect poorly upon Urban's judgment regarding the QB position/offensive strategy the past few years, and we just can't have that, can we?

Most Southeast Ohio folks will be watching LSU games this season & pulling for Joey Burrow. Glad now I have the SEC network as I had never turned it on before.  If LSU & OSU meet I know who I am pulling for!

You would only understand if you are from southeast Ohio. 

Joe Burrow is basically a hero in that part of the state, because nobody from down there ever gets to play football at a big time school.

It's almost like rooting against your son if he were playing against your favorite team.

I realize that is a tad over the top, but just saying.

I'm not going to question the loyalty/judgment of SE Ohio Buckeye fans-I would assume most of them would not betray the Buckeyes to root for LSU. Besides, it's not like Burrow was born in the hollers' or along the river, he moved in w/ his family from Nebraska. I'll certainly root for him at LSU, but when it comes to loyalty to the Buckeyes-puhleeze. Ironically, an LSU fan showed how it should be done-Landon Collins, the S from Bama/NY Giants, is from Louisiana, and his MOM told him when he signed w/ the Tide that she loved him but there was no way she would root for Bama over LSU when they played, even w/ him on the team! That's a mom I respect!

I have always liked Burrow. I think he has made a smart decision and I hope it works out for him. I hadn't been planning on watching any college games this year that didn't involve the Buckeyes, but if he is named the starter for LSU I will definitely be watching their games.

Sure do wish Joe could have gone to Cincy. Coach Fick would have done him right. Hate seeing him go to the $EC. But I feel that if his choice makes him happy and it helps him get to the next level, then so be it. I wish Joe B all the best -- he's earned it -- and as much as I can't stand to turn on an $EC game on my TV, I might just have to watch a little LSU this year....

I get the sentiment as he is from Ohio, and gave it his best shot, but can we move on...OSU made their choice and He made his, hindsight is 20-20 b​ut he is no longer a buckeye. Hope his OC is really good because the HC is a loon and their offense has never really scared anyone even when they had Fournette

HS
KYBuck's picture

Joe is a graduate from tOSU and therefore is a Buckeye forever. Just because he made his decision to play football elsewhere in the best interest of his pursuit of an opportunity at the next level does not mean that he won't be fondly remembered for what he gave to this team while he was here.

As far as everyone moving on, that will happen once the fall comes and the season starts anew. In the meantime, best to let folks vent their grief over him moving on so that they will be ready to fully embrace Dwayne and the team come September. 

Please try not to sound so negative toward other fans for expressing their feelings toward Joe Burrow. We'll all turn the page soon enough.

Go Bucks!

Burrow has every tendency of a great competitor.  Now he will get a chance (hopefully) to show what he can do.

I wish that he had not chosen to transfer but I think that I would have done the same thing were I in the same position. 

I will pay attention to what he does at LSU.  

It would make a playoff game or bowl game versus LSU pretty compelling for me as a fan.

We will see what happens.

I'm not saying he is better than Haskins but there certainly is some evidence to suggest he is better or just as good. In both spring games, Burrow outperformed Haskins. Burrow's numbers in mop up are also similar or better than Haskins. Burrow never got a chance here which is a shame. I like both Haskins and Burrow but my eyes told me Burrow was the slightly better QB. Let's hope Urban made the right choice.

Bittersweet ending for JB. Good luck to him.

There really wasn't any other choice for him. The OSU coaches weren't going to give him a guaranteed starting position before the fall, especially as he was injured last season. Even if that did happen, he would have had only one year, now he gets two.

TOSU can now focus their energy 100% on Haskins, instead of benching him for a year.

Can't believe some of the comments from "Buckeye fans". Burrow lines up against the silver bullets I want him to take a beating just like any other player not in scarlet and gray. Outside of that I'm pulling for him to be successful and will be tuning in for some LSU action this season.

No matter who won the job here the first time either of them would throw a pick or have a bad game the goons would come out and say Urban picked the wrong qb. For the coaching staff it wasn't going to be a win win situation. Haskins has enough on his plate to run the team. I just hope the fans support him and not run him out of town. Remember other young qb's watch and attend our games and watch every move by team and fan base. I remember a old saying during the  war. If you can't support the troops get in front of them. Same goes for Mr. Haskins and good luck Joe.

I was calling for Burrow to be the starter but him moving on is for the best.  From the sounds of it, Haskins won the job at the TTUN game in Meyer's opinion.  I think there was an honest competition but JB would have to look way better than Haskins in the spring to win the job. 

I'm not rooting for JB over the Buckeyes.  Honestly, I would have been rooting for him more if he went to a small school and started working on the NFL.

I've been an Ohio State fan for my entire life. Something about this Burrow thing really pisses me off: 3 years of hard work, distinctly better when given the chance, and he gets the shaft. I half ass hope that LSU hits all their marks, gets to the playoffs and torches FUM.

But then loses the game.

A few years ago-some time in Tressel's regime, I read a "What opposing coaches are saying" blurb about tOSU in the Sporting News college preview, where an anonymous, B10 coach said "Their fanbase is bi-polar. They get way too excited about players early/overhype them and then give up on them way too quickly for the next shiny object". This is the latest manifestation of this unfortunate tendency amongst a certain segment of the fanbase.

"torches FUM " is an unnecessary comment. A bit too strong IMO. I don't believe Myer screwed Joe over. I do believe he either made or didn't make a decision that will end up being a part of his legacy. It'll be Chapter 10 in his auto-biography.
