JTB is an athletic Chad Pennington. He has a high football IQ, can read defenses better than most of the better college QB's. If you watch him go thru his progressions he often gets to his 3rd or 4th read. His arm strength is average but there are many strong arm QB's who can't master reading fast and complex NFL defenses. It is doubtful that he will be drafted above the 4th round but will definitely make a NFL roster. For all of you "Buckeye Fans" trashing JTB, it obvious you've never coached football and don't really understand all things a good QB does like in game audibles, protection adjustments, etc.., there is so much more to that position than an arm like Dan Marino. Just enjoy the fact we have a great college QB.

I really hope Purdue hires Ed Warnier and he takes Zach Smith with him. The O-line play is on the players, particularly Jones and Prince. Special Teams errors = coaching error. Disappointing loss, but I think it may be the best medicine we needed, assistant coaches need to feel the heat on their seat.

Offensive line play is why we are losing this game. Halftime adjustments are going to be critical as it clearly looks like Wisconsin had two weeks to prepare. Our 1st Half game plan was get Curtis Samuel the ball, and they knew it. We will be OK, if the Slobs start dominating the line of scrimmage. Otherwise it going to be a painful one.

JT is the obvious choice because is the obvious choice. As a redshirt freshman he broke the touchdown record for the Big Ten ( that is amazing). If you look at his TD ratio last year it would have been close to his redshirt season, if he didn't have to deal with the Cardale situation. If not this year then definitely the next, he already is Troy Smith 2.0.  Anyone who thinks less doesn't know football.

1. Clemson

2. tOSU

3. Oak St Univ. 

4. Baylor

5. Iowa

6. Notre Dame

7. Bama

8. Mich St  

9 Flordia

10. TCU 

I think wins and losses are actually important and being undefeated in a Power 5 conference should carry merit.

The past... It's not like it was a decade ago. Does that mean JT does know how to play QB? Same O-line ( minus 1), Vannett had more snaps than Jeff H. last year, WR's = Mike Thomas, Jailn M, Corey Smith ( hope he's OK ), Braxton, Curtis, and a bunch of other 4 stars. 

This is the worst OSU since Urban has been HC. The one difference... We don't run the QB anymore.

I don't know why we abandoned the zone read. Before the playoffs Zeke was averaging about 125 a game while JT was averaging around 85 yards rushing a game. A lot of those 85 yards were for 4 to 6 yards per play, putting us in 3rd a short most of the time. Now that we have chosen to no longer run the zone read where are those 85 yards going to come from. It is not realistic to expect Zeke to rush for 200 yards per game.  It was the balance of the running back and quarterback rushing combination that piled up total rush yards and in turn opened up the passing game. It seems like the coaches have thought process to just "get the ball into our playmakers" instead of letting the QB run the ball on the zone read. 

Comment 13 Sep 2015

Play calling was very very weak. The play calling inconsistency negatively contributed to both of the QB's play. It looks like we are trying to find our identity as an offense. Too much wildcat, intermediate passing looks lost, zone read ( where did you go ). Are we pushing the vertical too much instead of just getting the ball in the hands of our playmakers. So many toys that Ed doesn't know what to do with them. We wouldn't have beat Sparty today. Now that I have that out of my system.... we will take the win. Defense played great. Go Bucks!!!

Good points: R. McMillan played awesome. His recognition was quick and his tackling was solid. Conley was equally as good. 

So-So points: Shutts, Hubbard, Price, Boren, Darron Lee and Vonn Miller were up and down. All made plays but had a few head scratchers as well. 

Bad points: Vannett and Josh Perry played terrible. Both clearly missed assignments which is unexpected for two guys that are seniors. 

Virgina Tech's offensive line are dirty players. Watch the play were Sam Hubbard got his sack and you will see every VT offensive lineman dive for the knees of our D-line. It is sickening because when you see that happen across the whole line you know they are being coached that way ( hello Denver Broncos ). Trying to blow an athletes knee is BS... I have lost all respect for the VT coaching staff.

From what is on the 'interweb' Parris had the fastest 40 time of the newest young guns at mid 4.3 range. Terry M was 4.4 and J. Dixon at 4.5. Note: this was their high school times.

In addition Parris is taller with more weight than the others which could be why he is better at blocking. J Dixon looks like a fluid route runner from his high school tape but who knows how they have all progressed since the have been in college ( well... urban knows ) I have wonder who could replace Spencer blocking on the edge. I think he was probably even more valuable than we realized at time. Go Bucks!!!

I know this may sound unconventional but I almost think that putting out five wide receiver sets with motioning Zeke at wide receiver would help the quick passing game it would be the last thing that Virginia Tech would be expecting. You would still have a viable running QB to maintain balance. 

5 WR = Thomas, Zeke, Vannett, Braxton, & ( J. Dixon, Terry M, or Parris )
