The UGA matchup was an agreement to play in 2020 & 2021 if dates could be set. The agreement got canceled in 2012 mainly due to the Big10 /PAC 12 partnership. 2020 & 2021 UGA  was replaced by Oregon who at that time was the better team.

Let’s not totally ignore how 2016 ended with: 44% against MSU, 46% vs ttun, 57% Clemson,  2017 OU 54%, iowa 52%, 37% ttun, 46% Wisconsin. This wasn’t JT throwing bombs all day, this was predominantly throwing WR screens and 5 yard passes. A lot of games won also were not because of his arm, it was because of his legs. I would rather have a QB that is a passer with an ability to run when needed. JT was a runner who could pass from time to time.

The only issue is your comparing 2 QBs in a tressel offense vs 2 in a Meyer offense. Could you imagine what Smith would look like in a Meyer offense with accuracy to hit the short routes and the arm for the deep ball. TP being a tank and dumping 5 yard passes, he’d be Tebow 2.0. Braxton is interesting because he crossed to offenses. He improved under Meyer’s offense, unfortunately injuries hampered him to be consistent.

He was actually their best offensive weapon with Fuller leaving. He would have been above 60% passing had he not had a coach that had him attempt 26 passes in a hurricane. His college career had nothing to do with a terrible rookie year and the expected some of it. Felt like he took most of the blame for the losses when he really wasn’t the reason  70% of the time.

Comment 02 Jan 2018

Ok, again Kizer wasn’t the reason why. He had 8 interceptions his final year and was 59%. Wimbush and his 49% would suggest more 3 and outs and hinder a D. Now you’re trying  to blame him for not winning shootouts because the D was horrible. They fired their DC mid season. You don’t fire a DC because your QB is playing bad. You do that when your D is terrible.

Comment 02 Jan 2018

There in lies the problem, he was a interception machine because of horrible play calling. I often thought why are we passing in the middle of the end zone on 1st and goal? He was also a QB that had a WR corps that lead the league in drops and had about 5 picks bounce of his WRs. Now in no way do I think he’s a great QB, but he certainly was not helped out with the play calling and WR play when he did make good throws. I honestly don’t care if Rosen wants to come or not. I’m more concerned with his injury history over the last few years. The best plan for the Browns would be to go F/A QB, if you want a QB at 1 you can draft 1 and they can battle with Kizer for the backup role. The biggest problem is the depth at QB.

Comment 02 Jan 2018

The starting QB for ND completed only 49% of his passes. ND wasn’t better because Kizer left, they were better because their D improved. They held 10 teams to 20 or fewer points. They held 4 teams to 20 or less the year before. 

Comment 02 Jan 2018

IMHO I think the logic behind starting Kizer was the belief that sitting behind a bad QB in Osweiller you’re only watching a bad QB play. Is there really value in it? I was actually more disappointed in the play calling. There was virtually no run game to lean on, he was constantly throwing downfield on low percentage plays. He also often stood in the pocket too long. He would have done better if he had two reads and tucked and run. He made the expected rookie mistakes, but he definitely was not helped by the play calling

By cemented, it was not a mystery who the starter was going forward. It was his job since Rutgers and his suspension was clearly on him. 

Comment 30 Dec 2017

Coaching can’t change limitations. Let’s be realistic this is Meyer’s playbook. JTB is a better running than throwing. Problem is it’s the same play, you have Weber and Dobbins that had 18 total carries. If OSU went full Wisconsin they’re probably undefeated 

Comment 30 Dec 2017

No, the issues he has are the same he had his first year. Seen too many games where he pumps the ball 5 seconds and over throw. It’s too easy blame WRs and OL. QB queddon happened because Jones was a better downfield passer. The problem was they tried to run QB option when clearly him passing and Zeke running was the magic recipe we chose to ignore after the championship 

Comment 30 Dec 2017

OSU was actually better with a QB that can throw and let the RBs....Run. Maybe JT was so good at the read option because he was a mediocre passer? Before you say records etc.. I’ll just say look at the big games where a D with a pulse showed up and his passing stats dropped considerably. Last night should have been a 48-7 game.

Comment 30 Dec 2017

If that’s the year you’re talking about. Lost the game in which we only ran Zeke 12 times and lost to a back up QB from MSU. By that time JT was cemented as the starter. Not sure why we’re acting like Jones and Barrett were switched on and off at that point 

Comment 30 Dec 2017

I actually said this, the end all be all is Meyer. The same limitations are because of Meyer. And trust me he’s the best coach. But he sticks with his guy. It worked at Utah and UF. But we should be good moving forward 

Comment 30 Dec 2017

It’s not a rip on JT but it’s a acknowledgement that Urban Meyer QBs put up stats

Comment 30 Dec 2017

I appreciate JT for his toughness, his shortcomings as a QB against top competition is hard to ignore. He should have beat Wisconsin and USC by 30+. I blame coaching not JT. We should have ground and pounded many teams 

Comment 30 Dec 2017

Exactly, I mean JT played zero games and was thrust in when Braxton got hurt. I think Haskins has completed 70% and beat Michigan this past year. I think the future is bright with Haskins
