I have always been a Buckeye fan but truly became a diehard after attending football camp under Earl Bruce back in the early 80's. My first car was a gray 1980 Cutlass with scarlet interior called the Woodymobile (bench front seat, an entire generation of kids have no idea how great a bench front seat is!). I grew up in Cincinnati (which should actually be part of Kentucky) where there are plenty of Buckeye faithful that are typically overshadowed by hillbillies, catholic school devotees, and cute little bearcat fans with massive inferiority complexes. I now live outside of Hamilton county where you see the Buckeyes flags fly 365 days a year. My favorite Buckeyes moments: a 3-way tie between throwing with Art as a sophmore in high school, watching Cie Grant toss Dorsey to the ground like a rag doll, and yelling like a madman as Ted Ginn returned the opening kickoff as I watched from 20 rows up in the 2006 NC game. Worst Buckeye moments: about 30 minutes after the Ted Ginn moment and watching JT fall on the sword for Gee and Smith.

His voice was the voice of college football. Still sucks that the 2002 National Championship also included the voice of dan fouts.

RIP Mr. Jackson, you will be missed

Dude....butthurt? No need to get personal. Other than last month’s colonoscopy it’s been an exit only orafice since birth. JT does have a ‘natti’ by the way. I’ve not laid blame on anyone (you’ve been the only one in this conversation to do that). All I’ve said is that using the words elite and spectacular with Dixon is a little premature at best. You talk yards after catch and mention his great game in a 31 Point loss to Iowa. He had 44 and 22 yard touchdown catches both of which he caught on the run perfectly timed on the goal line with exactly 0 yards after the catch. Love his story after battling injury for two years but AT BEST he was a late round or camp invitee if he left this year. At best. He should be thankful for a fifth year because not all fifth years are granted under Meyer. I hope he tears it up in 2018. Maybe you should aim a little of your angst at the coaching staff who calls the plays and posts the lienup instead of the QB. I know JTs limitations as I’ve  seen the HANDFUL of losses in a four year career. I also saw a guy pick up the pieces in 2014 and lead us to a shot at the title. I also saw the same guy get dicked around all of 2015 while the savior couldn’t get the job done either. The blame rests with the coaching staff not the player. Now I’ve wasted way too much time responding to you and prefer to drink another IPA while watching a little football this evening not bitching about how bad our record setting QB has been the last few years all the while making excuses as to why his records don’t matter.

And there it is finally. JT. The guy who threw every one of those 18 Dixon catches and 8 TDs. Even the one catch Dixon had against Oklahoma.

63 catches made in those last 5 games. 1 out of 63 by Dixon. Again I hope he has a break out 2018 and works his way into the draft. I also hope Haskins, or Burrow, or Martell tear it up this year too. I also hope they break every JT record in the books without taking the mounds of shit buckeye fans threw his way.

You bring up a lot of stats in your arguments. Dude, I hope Dixon has a great 2018 and is a first round pick next year too but please back off the elite and spectacular. You mention this:

Pleeeez - Half of Dixon's receptions AND half of Dixon's TD's were against Penn State, Wisconsin, Oklahoma, And Iowa.

He had 1 catch for 12 yards against Oklahoma. That you can include that stat line in your proof should say enough. What you could and should include is in his last 180 snaps this season over the last 5 games he had 1 catch for 9 yards. I know, I know....JT Barrett was his qb and I think I know what you think of him and his stats but 1 catch for 9 yards in 180 snaps in 5 wins to close the season is not elite or spectacular. 

Again, I hope he makes some nice coin in 2019 playing football but in 2018 he should be thankful to have a fifth year scholarship.
