If you ignore when he went on the road against #7 Michigan state and put up 61.5% for 300 yd, 3 TD 0 INT, 86 yd rush, 2 TD, he's been awful. Well yeah, there's the time he went to #12 Michigan and put up 60% for 113 yd, 1 TD 0 INT, 139 yd rush, 3 TD, but that was just Zeke anyway! Barrett might as well have not even been in the stadium! That Fiesta Bowl game against #8 Notre Dame was trash. 61.3% for 211 yd, 1 TD 1 INT, 96 yd rush really is barely FBS level if you think about it. Jaylon Smith's injury really saved JT there!

Big games on the road against top 15 teams have really shown JT's teammates as the engine of the team. Noah Brown dragged JT kicking and screaming @ #14 Oklahoma to a 70% for 152 yd, 4 TD 0 INT, 74 yd rush performance. Sad. The Big Ten West is barely real football, so no need to even consider 58.6% for 226 yd, 1 TD 0 INT, 92 yd rush 2 TD at Camp Randall against #8 Wisconsin. Easy when you don't play anyone! Nebraska ended up sucking last year, so it's easy to explain away JT's performance against then #9 Nebraska when he put up 68.4% for 290 yd, 4 TD 0 INT, 39 yd rush.

This is a terrible take. JT was hurt through camp. He didn't get reps until the season started basically. 

Leave our fanbase.

"They're ready for a change to a QB w/a presumed higher ceiling (Haskins mostly, or Burrow)."

This is where #2 turns into utter illogical nonsense. You just don't bench an all time great at Senior on potential. If JT turned into Joe Bauserman, maybe, but still probably not. OSU vs Oklahoma was not a team that was being held back by their quarterback. Wanting JT benched is 100% incorrect. It's not a matter of opinion. One opinion was wrong.

Twitter hot take machines are the worst

"He sucks under the lights!" 

Tell that to top 10 Michigan, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Michigan State. Tell that to Top-15 Oklahoma (at Norman, at night). 

"These teams suck!" 

They're Big Ten foes. Ohio State's SOS is middling. 40-something IIRC. That's not bad. That's above the median in FBS. The teams are OK. He's tearing them to shreds. 

"Anyone could do that against this schedule! Hell I could! Haskins could have gone out there and got 7 TDs!"

No he couldn't have. No you couldn't have. No anyone couldn't have. Going 27-33 in 7 on 7 is still extremely impressive. Against air isn't that bad either. These are Big Ten teams with top-250 recruits, athletes. We lose a recruit to Nebraska every now and again. Mike Riley is an actual coach with a pulse. 

JT isn't the best QB in football history. JT isn't the most talented throwing QB in OSU history. 

He's just the most productive player in Ohio State history. His team won a national title. He's routinely dismantled most (not all, sorry) the top 15 teams he's faced. 

The fact that I have to even launch into this defense makes me sick. 

TLDR: Ramzy rite

I was intending to be showered with accolades for being so bored at work I pulled his stat line and the opponent's poll ranking for all the games. Instead I was rewarded with a precipitous drop from neutral to -12 before recovering. It's been a wild day over here in the 11W commentariat.

Easy to do when your opponents might as well not leave the lockerroom. Barrett is trash, and will never shine against top 15 teams or in big games. He's lost five games, five more than Cardale or Haskins have as starters!

Really time we look toward the future and get Haskins and Burrow more snaps. JT is a liability and has shown routinely to suck total ass.

Comment 07 Jan 2013

Not too sure what the point of the post is, but to take the football-related entitlement facet out of it is silly

From NYT article:

Approached in November to be interviewed about the case, Saccoccia said he did not “do the Internet,” so he had not seen the comments and photographs posted online from that night. When asked again about the players involved and why he chose not to discipline them, he became agitated.

“You made me mad now,” he said, throwing in several expletives as he walked from the high school to his car.

Nearly nose to nose with a reporter, he growled: “You’re going to get yours. And if you don’t get yours, somebody close to you will.”

"First and foremost, the main key for tonight is to have the good Ohio State team show up. I have little doubt this won't happen, for the reasons mentioned above."

 

hmm
