Well you mentioned one game where Haskins "got benched" without speaking at all objectively to his body of work that season (70% completion, 4TDs, 1int, 174 QBR)... or at least mention one other game where he was thrown in to perhaps the biggest test that exists at OSU for a QB. And what he did when he got in. As a RS Freshman... Down by a TD late... At UM.

I believe you made a point about him getting benched, which I assume you were using to say he wasn't ready? I made a point to the contrary. What he did at Michigan was waiting in the stables all season. And I would argue that the JT offense was very predictable and handicapped our offense versus Oklahoma, Iowa, and UM (you remember that first half and the 3rd quarter I assume). Of course the JT comeback vs Penn State will be one of the greatest things cemented in my Buckeye heart. JT had finally shown us what we had been waiting so long to see. Jt the QUARTERBACK... And then Iowa happened.

Would Haskins have hung 60 on Wisconsin, instead of the 27-21 win in Indy (46% passing, 3 INTs, only 211 yards)? Who knows...

"But JT was injured in Indy... You can't count that..."

I was hoping you would say that... Which some would say is the entire point of this whole debate. Were the best players on the field for that entire season? Of course any answer to this is all opinion based off armchair observation. I have no clue what actual discussions happened behind closed doors, or if anyone was advocating for Haskins in Urban's ear... Knowing that Urban would never sit JT so long as he had a heart beat.

Agree very much. TP was built like a damn tank... but with 4.4 speed. (Even though he always looked like he was barley jogging haha)

Comment 27 Jun 2019

Why do people always seem mistake honesty and justified comparisons with "you hate the kid! How dare you?!"

I'd let JT marry my daughter (if I had one) and take my mom to church (if she went). He'll forever be one of my favorite players. He wasn't just the team captain, he was OUR captain... But he wasn't the best quarterback in the position room with Haskins waiting in the winds. JT did get exposed as a sub-par and inconsistent passer of the football. His skill set handicapped our offense.

That doesn't mean I hate him and have forgotten all the great things he did for us.

The best players play, that's how it's always been.

I would challenge that sentiment slightly with a couple decisions over the past 4 1/2 years.

But in general, yes that's how mostly it goes and how it should always go.

Comment 27 Jun 2019

Watched the few highlights from his Georgia games, Fields really does favor lowering his shoulder, getting those extra couple yards and laying the wood to a DB like Pryor used to do. He's not afraid of contact...

I hope he lets that side of his game go... a little bit... when not necessary.

But you have to love the grit.

Not new by any stretch. I coached a pretty competitive travel baseball team from their 10U up through 12U seasons. 2012-2015. The kids were awesome, for the most part. The least favorite kids mostly came from the least favorite parents.

But ultimately the parents were the reason I stepped away from the team. On my exit speech I said to them "if I could do it all over again, I would go find 12 orphans and hope that they were all exactly like your sons."

Most of the parents laughed, the ones who didn't probably didn't get it... that I was referring to them.

When did pundits/experts/coaches first begin ranking football recruits? I have to assume it's been going on since the 80s? I just couldn't find anything online about what year it really became a "thing".

A friend of mine said this kid is one of the top 200 recruits of all time. Trying to see what that metric stacks up against.

Lorimer's fault for not know what kind of piece of shit Chubb is? Ehhh...

I am not going to fault a guy for doing a fan a kind favor upon request, so long as it was the first (and only) time he's ever/will ever interact with Chubb.

Comment 06 Mar 2019

Lorimer is aware.

However, Chubb was not aware, or simply didn't care, that the tickets he got from Lorimer would be near Lorimer in the VIP area. Lorimer sees two random people sit down, none of which were Buck I Guy (Chubb).

Comment 06 Mar 2019

And for obvious reasons I can't state his name on here. I mean I can disclose that the source and I see each other at all family events. And he's introduced us to Arnold and Lorimer for quick pleasantries and handshakes. Thus, I had no doubt in my mind he was telling me the truth... But to your point, Chubb's reputation gives more credence to the story than any sources credibility. And that's actually kind of sad.

And yes, Lorimer was being a "nice guy" to Chubb. Not sure if he was aware of the growing black list surrounding Chubb. But he is aware now. And he is also aware of the scalp... being that the two people that showed up in the VIP section/seats where Lorimer was, none of them were Chubb. So he asked "where'd you get these tickets". And the buyers explained they purchased them out front from a seller.

Comment 05 Mar 2019

I agree with you. But I’m confident that he frequents this website... so the more he cries himself to sleep at night reading his press, the better for everyone in the long run. 

Hopefully every tailgate he approaches in 2019 and beyond laughs him in to oblivion.

Comment 05 Mar 2019

Let Kingsbury dig his own grave. I got no problem with it. Just want to see Haskins have a long healthy career regardless if he’s #1 or #20... OSU is past due for putting a sustainable NFL QB in the books. 

Comment 05 Mar 2019

Buck I Guy is creeping and shot you a DV, so here's one to counter balance.

This is the correct answer. I am so sick of seeing those self serving ass hats at every commercial break. Grow up, get over yourself, support the players.

I was hoping to avoid that if it was "legal" to simply wipe and purchase my own operating system, software license, etc. But yeah, if it's a legality thing I guess I could see if my old boss is still there and maybe route me to the IT department. Been a while since I've been in contact there.
