Yeah def wouldnt want any young qb taught how to win as many games as JT won or be as poised under pressure. There are so many examples of qb coaches who were far more elite as players than jt was.
Do you apply this same logic to the nfl, mlb, nba, or cbb?
I never cease to be amazed out how grown men desire to troll strangers on the internet.
“Street cred” give me a break. I’ve been around here long enough to know that every comment he makes is a put down of either a current or former player, a coach, the team, osu fans, or some how defending opponents including tun. You’re either his second account or not paying attention.
Of course brutusB defends this. At what point are you going to admit you’re a michigan troll?
I agree with the mentality of winning with highly rated recruits. Its worked great for teams like usc, florida, and bama. How clemson does it is impressive too. They land a few five stars who always seem to deliver on the hype and also develop 3 star guys like msu does. Until the current cycle, clemson was not recruiting at an elite level. They went 15-0 last year with two classes that werent top ten and without oversigning.
Grinch losing recruits? Thats shocking
Or just dodged it... or maybe flat out not bothered with it.
He’s not saying you can train a guy to run in the 4.3’s. He’s saying you can train a guy to end up fast throughout his college career than what he arrived as. Ted ginn has talked about this. There is a lot more technique to being a fast sprinter than just natural speed.
I was thinking the same thing. It must be a massillon thing. Give me devin smith 2.0 all day long
I thought most people following that story knew that. Maybe he didn’t push for him to be fired as much. It’s common knowledge that he was the one pushing for punishment even against the board majority, however.
Pushed for him to be fired for something Meyer clearly didn't feel he had done.
I totally understand what you’re saying. I think frost will bring nebraska back to its glory days of the 90’s but it’s going to take time. Some people don’t like star gazers but the proof is in the pudding. The teams that recruit the best year in and year out are winning national championships. OSU has dominated the B1G in recruiting for a long time and it shows in the standings. Development is huge and very important whether recruiting 4’s and 5’s or getting 3’s. However, Frost has to upgrade the talent he’s working with before nebraska can consistently swing with the big boys. Im sure until then, the huskers will get an upset here and there but I don’t see them being a juggernaut until 21’ or beyond. They’re certainly a team to take seriously right now, though.
The OSU offense schemes pretty well too. Nebraska doesn't have even remotely the same type of players on either side of the ball as OSU. They could be a very tough test and I’m not saying they couldn’t upset the buckeyes because I am a frost believer. I’m just not ready to anoint a 4-8 team bama/ clemson status where people believe a team like osu has to play perfect to beat them.
But... but... but... JT was terrible and we’re all so glad he is finally gone so we can have a good offense. So, Nebraska's offense will be terrible too.
Papa johns used to be my favorite pizza when I was a kid. I now find their pizza very bland. Idk if its because their quality has got significantly worse or If I just introduced my taste buds to much better tasting pizza.
Wow BrutusB, you seem especially critical today. Is something wrong or are you still trying to deal with the whole Beilein to the Cavs thing?
Sure that just wasnt david pollack writing it all up?
i was rolling during the itchagain one. But we should seriously look into getting that psu kid in the transfer portal. We havn’t had a great timeout blocker in years.
I find the whole “bama was weak that year” narrative funny. They were elite... until they lost. Then all of the sudden they weren’t that great. I’ll always remember jesse palmer saying bama was lucky to draw osu during the selection show. Everybody had bama winning that game and it was comical how quickly the narrative changed
He is a five star that was told by Day to hold off and then osu took a four star commit. Something tells me this kid was a back up option in case Day didn’t get the qb he wanted but thats just me.
I’m pretty confident that at 16, I still would not have verbalized wanting to kill anyone during an interview.
Lol you can imagine the shock I’m experiencing that BrutusB is the author of this gem.
No worries silver. I’ve been a staunch supporter of Barrett’s and I guess I get a little defensive because of how some people treat the guy on here. My apologies, wasn’t trying to come at you or anything.
“Revenue is king, not winning championships” this is the realization that I came to last season with Delaney. I like what he’s done with the conference generally speaking but I don’t think he cares about national championships. If they happen, great. But ultimately it comes down to the bottom line. He has taken it on the chin gracefully the last two seasons and this is a business where the nice guy always finishes last. Even if he believed osu should not be in the playoff, at least put up some sort of fight. As long as the B1G is revenue king there is no initiative to do anything better.
JT = jim tressel
For what its worth, JT Barret beat msu 14’, ND 15’, oklahoma 16’, wisconsin 16’, nebraska 16’, michigan 16’, psu 17’, wisconsin 17’, and usc 17’ when they were all ranked in the top ten. Yeah, he lost to msu, psu, clemson, and oklahoma. I think its still a pretty good record against the best teams osu faced during his career.
