To me it is easily Greg Frey. One play. One MUST HAVE clutch 19-yard completion. 

This from 11W on The Game in 1987 (Earle’s last Game). 

In the 4th quarter, the two teams traded punts but OSU finally got the upper hand midway through the quarter when they drove 77 yards to set up a 26-yard FG by Frantz to put Ohio State ahead 23-20. During the drive, Tupa was momentarily dazed by a hit from a UM defender, and he had to leave the game with OSU facing a 3rd and 9. But backup QB Greg Frey came in and delivered a 19-yard completion to Workman to get the first down. After that, they moved in for the winning field goal.

What makes the Hurts situation — if he had left — different from Baldwin's?  would he not have gotten a waiver? Perhaps not  

but i just meant that there are instances where two QBs work out. And he had the confidence in his abilities to stay. To learn from good coaches and to transfer at the right time (before spring ball)  

Baldwin is not starting at a top 5 school this year. Hurts will. And Tate May start at a top 20 school.

Be hopeful. Our brand new coach is a pretty darn good QB coach. Our O line is fine. Our RBs and receivers and tight ends and H back candidates have unlimited potential. 3 (or more) losses would be to what teams? Indiana?  Northwestern? Nebraska?  I’m not seeing it but i have Scarlet colored glasses on.

Alabama played two last year. The “backup” won the SEC championship. The team made it all the way to the title game. 

You never know. 

Jalen Hurts understood. He stepped back when asked to step back and stepped forward  when needed. And he moved on AFTER  graduating.

Seemed like Day was sending a message to him. I thought the comment was a bit odd when he said it. Makes sense now.  I’m with the argument he couldn’t handle not being the starter. He thought he could earn it over Tate but it was clear from Day One (puns r fun) that Fields was the main man and Baldy wasn’t getting enough love 

Not much of a team guy.  So he’s welcome to move along.

Why 62? Because our second string QB is now the former second strong QB  at WVA?  That alone won’t matter one bit  

I’m good. Glad Justin came to take the reins and win some games

Were you AT the game?  It was what it is. And the crowd was big. And the spectacle was attractive to recruits. 

And there was a baseball game against ttun up the street right after. And a band DID play — a damn good one

Colorado, Utah, UCLA — three of the best stadium views in the nation in D1

Navy, West Point, Stanford — three of the most awe-inspiring campuses to visit. 

Texas A$M, LSU, Auburn  —three of the most raucus fan bases outside the B1G. 

Bama, Clemson, Georgia — three teams we would most enjoy beating 

Virginia, West Virginia, Pitt — three closest to my house in the DMV

There still could be conferences. Those would be your “dregs” games. And they would matter for something. But if Amazon walked into a room with the top 20 ADs in the country and Jeff Bezo’s Checkbook, i could see some kind of Super League just for college football ensuring 8 or so great games every week with the promise that 16 of the 20 play in a National championship tournament as part of it. Oh yeah!!

And these players would be paid, too

My advice:

a) what Iowa said

b) take no advice on how to be a parent from anonymous posters on a sports site.
