Watch the epic meltdown thread when JT throws nothing but seeds and complete a few long balls this weekend. All the blame will shift to coaching, Urban Meyer, Wilson, day. #alwayssomeonesfault lol. Good news is no matter what...JT is the man and _ichigan still sucks!
I love RS and he is just a true example of what an athlete, Christian and male role model should be.
Bold move cotton. Will he have to sit out a year or will he petition the NCAA for a waiver to get on the field this year?
My daughter is 10 and refuses to wear maize (yellow to her) and blue together ever and whenever she sees anyone wearing a _ichigan shirt or hat she will yell out a hearty OH loud enough so that they will hear them! Muck Fichigan!
The ref was from C-bus!
Did you hear Clay Helton talk about the USC brotherhood before the game? Bahaaa! #original
Come on stop acting like I’m being an insulting asshat. I have an opinion and I shared it intelligently and logically and that is exactly what the comment section is for correct? If you want to get frustrated with idiotic comments go follow a live game thread...you’ll want to pull your hair out there if what I said bothered you Scarlet.
I’m sorry but I have no respect for this decision. The “brotherhood” was this years theme and this is not a “brotherhood” type of move. Yes, it is a team game as some have said...and that’s exactly what disappoints me about his decision. With that being said...won’t matter in the outcome because this is THE Ohio Staye Buckeyes taking the field tonight! Let’s go Bucks!
I know DJ but you have to admit, negativity runs deep here sometimes especially during game threads. My Dad always told me “ don’t worry about anything ...until it’s time to worry!”
My only complaint is that the games aren’t long enough! I hate when they are over and I hate every Saturday without Buckeye Football.
Seems a little negative here in spots today. We lost Cox...maybe Jones and that’s it. Are we or aren’t we the #1 recruiting class still? Why are we talking about slipping backwards or maybe we’ve peaked? Week one without Buckeyes on a Saturday and all of a sudden the sky is showing signs of falling? Relax Henny Penny...it’s great to be a Buckeye and that’s not changing any time soon!
I honestly believe that Burtow is even better than Haskins but hasn’t had the chance to show it with enough live game reps after his injury. I’m a big Butrow fan and I hope he sticks around but he needs to do what’s best for him. If he stays we win, if he chooses to leave we still win with Haskins and Martell waiting in the Wings. Regardless, Burrow is going to light up the scoreboard at a Major University somewhere but will and would always be a Buckeye!
Not at all and not what I said. I am simply saying that we will be respected in both the qb run and pass which will make us much more difficult for a high level team to defend than it is now.
I can't even bring myself to read these JT threads anymore but I'm going to comment one last time. JT is one of the and in some cases arguably the GREATEST and TOUGHEST players, leaders and competitors we have ever had in OSU Football history. That being said, he wasn't the best QB by a long shot. His number are skewed by video game type performances vs. lesser opponents and the occasional big game when we expected him to produce but the reality is, when we faced a top level defense, when they took the read option away with a spy and simply tackling him every play instead of reading first, we couldn't beat a big team in a big game because we had zero ability to beat a good pass defense.
If you really paid attention to the B1G Championship performance, he obviously could not cut normally and was several steps slower than normal but more importantly, he continued his normal M.O. of taking too long to throw, not wanting to throw the receivers open and missing open receivers either by not throwing the ball accurately or simply not seeing them. It's not just about Haskins being the best QB we have...Burrow hits the throws that JT missed as well.
I will miss JT and I am forever grateful for what he has done and Urban was loyal to him because he DESERVED it not always because he was our best chance of losing but also he was low chance of losing most times. I don't question Urban's decision to ride or die with JT at all but I promise you this...we will be a much different team starting next year because we have THREE....that is 3 Qb's that can throw and throw well sitting in our bullpen before we even bring in anyone in this years recruiting class. Don't just think that it's Haskins job to lose because Burrow is a stud and don't forget...remember the name...TATE MARTELL is going to light up scoreboards for the Buckeyes whether it's next year or the following but we will begin playing a whole new brand of football and offense starting next year!
We may not be playing in the game we wanted, but we weren't ready for another matchup with Clemson...plain and simple.
or it could be a purposeful post for Wisconsin....could be brilliant! LOL. Trust me, they aren't changing anything nor are they reading or listening...they will prepare the same and prepare for both.
We live in an age where you are Guilty until proven innocent. Sad times.
I'm assuming they are redshirting Dylan Mcaffrey? At 6'5 and his lineage and SCARY numbers he put up as a senior last year...they are eerily quiet about him so far on the xichagin side of things. Anyone heard anything?
My God these posts are getting old...moving on.
There are signs everywhere...
Nothing more important than the health and happiness of our youth. Love this story and tradition and I know our Buckeyes will embrace and participate this Saturday.
