Not only that, but he outperformed expectations for two teams that were not expected to make the tournament and won at least one game in each. This year was expected to be a step up, but OSU was not expected to be some powerhouse, so I don't understand all the crying on this board outside of maybe getting their expectations too high during the hot streak in the non-conference portion of the schedule. A six seed is pretty much meeting expectations with what the outside media thought of us. A little disappointing just to meet expectations, but then again, Holtmann outperformed them the last two seasons with less talented teams.

This just reminds me why I rarely post on the discussions here anymore despite the fact that I still love the content on the site, this place is filled to the brim with whiny drama queens spewing hot takes after every slightly disappointing result. I still remember how consistently this board was calling for Fickle's and even sometimes Urban's head during the season we won the championship. Judging by this board, everyone should have packed up shop and quit or been fired because that september opened with a loss.

Nature of QBs is that if you're a backup you barely have a chance to prove yourself. Coaches used to go with seniority at the position a lot back in the day, especially since back then most QBs were more game managers than anything else. I do hope it eventually settles down a little more than how it is now, but I totally understand why QBs transfer so much.

I'm disappointed Tate didn't try to compete for the starting role through spring ball, but I can't make any judgements, because I don't know what may or may not have been said behind closed doors to him by Day. Unlike some people, I realize these guys are just 20 year olds, and as a 20 something myself; we don't always handle things the most mature and professional way. Good luck to him going forward in any game where he isn't playing tOSU.

We ran zone read the year we beat Bama and Oregon. We ran zone read when going 12-1 in 2015 and 12-0 in Urban's 1st season. I don't think zone read was somehow what was holding us back against other schools, especially when teams like Clemson and even Bama now still run it. I think we just didn't have an elite passer in JT Barrett. It is possible for a QB to be a capable runner and thrower.

A lot of assumptions that Fields will get his hardship waiver. Personally, I don't think that is guaranteed, and the fact that his sister is currently enrolling at Georgia after the event doesn't look good for the argument that it is an environment the Fields family feels unsafe in. Personally, I don't think he gets it.

As for the QB drama, why can't the people in this fan base just appreciate all our players? I used to get in to the position drama when I was younger, but now I realize it is stupid to root against someone who is still a Buckeye. Best man wins, and regardless of who that is, they will be a Buckeye. No reason to tear down one of our own players.

This is my opinion too. I hate how antagonistic people get toward some QBs because of position battles. I feel like we don't see that nearly as much with most other positions. Haskins was the better QB, but I wish Joe the best, and would love to see him also make the NFL down the line. Would love to see LSU succeed even more than their first year with Joe, especially since that would mean Bama losing.

In that case, I wouldn't take him. There has to be a competition, we have too much talent with Martell and Baldwin to just give him the job.
