I didn't give the down vote, but I think it is a moot point considering he started and played the whole game. If he is in the game already, hand him the damn ball!

Comment 05 Aug 2019

We had the best running back in college football and only gave him 12 rushing attempts in 2015 againts Sparty in a game where weather conditions made it impossible to pass the ball.

If Big 12 Champ has 2 losses, Bucks could be the favorite for that 4th spot. It might be a lock if Washington State loses as well although I think there is a decent chance we jump them regardless after a resume topping win over a top 4 TUN. The Big 10 West is doing us no favors though. Notre Dame looks slated to win out but never rule out a late season slip up and Brian Kelly looking like he's starring in a Gushers commercial.

4th playoff spot is up for grabs between Big 12 Champ, Big 10 Champ, & a potential Washington State Pac 12 Champ. This is where a 29 point loss really comes back to haunt us if we win out. Of course the season is far from over for teams still in contention and there is a lot of potential chaos, but the Buckeyes are running out of time to get their shit together.

I think we want TTUN to keep winning until they play us, that way we beat a top 4 team when it matters most. Off topic but sometimes I wonder why buckeyes don't root for TTUN to go undefeated every year until they play us. When we beat a highly ranked rival at the end of the season not only does it boost our resume, but more importantly it hurts worse on their end....and isn't that what we want? Maximum pain for TTUN??

With all due respect, I think it is pretty evident what our issues are and I don't think extra rest would make much of a difference. However, to your point I think the bye week will be crucial to getting guys healthy for the stretch. I am hoping we make some leaps in development over the next few weeks, and hell maybe the coaches will even become a bit less stubborn.

I think the worries are warranted. 

6-0 is nothing to take for granted, and we are damn lucky not to have been born north of the state border. However, you don't have to dig very far into your memory to find our mid-season tendencies setting the table for a very painful late-season loss.

I'm looking at you Michigan State 2015 and Clemson 2016. 

Besides, if Haskins doesn't turn water into wine with 8 minutes to go in Happy Valley, then the sky could very well be falling.

The solution is so simple:

1st down = Martell to gain positive yardage

2nd down = Burrow to manage down and distance

3rd down = Haskins to make the tight window throw

Comment 17 Apr 2018

This is a tough one. I am probably a little bias towards Haskins because of the poise he showed in the big house last year.

It baffles me that no one has dusted off the blueprint Herman left during our dominant 3 game championship run. Haskins has the arm to open up our running game, but not enough mobility to carry the ball 15 times a game. If the latter forces our offense to favor that of the 2014 post season, then Haskin’s lack of mobility should be moved under the category of “why he should start”.

8 or so years ago when OSU had the best record over 108 years.  Now it's 122 years. (Last year it was 120 years)

This really mind fucked me 

Comment 03 Jan 2018

Let's face it. Barrett was not the legendary QB that his statistics painted him to be, but he was also not the bum that frustrated fans colored him as either.

There are inconsistant opinions about Barrett because he was an inconsistent QB. 

While a majority of his great games came against lesser opponents, he certainly did have his fair share of memorable moments. But I think there is a reason that JT is almost exclusively defended by his statistics.

There is no secret who JT was. He was the guy who could throw the game winning touchdown against Penn State, and on his very next pass play throw a pick 6 against Iowa.

While I agree with your post, I am actually on the other side of the fence. I think the Buckeyes get in for all the wrong reasons.

- To make sure more conferences are represented

- Cause less controversy/Less justification needed for putting in a conference champ

- TV Ratings

I think it is the path of least resistance for the committee, and that may be the deciding factor.
