Braxton Miller and Joe Bauserman are listed as co-starters on the Akron depth chart.
It has been reported that Joe Bauserman will be on the field for the first snap on offense (which I predicted in January), but clearly both players will have their chance to drive, drive on down the field with the men of the scarlet and gray (see what I did there?).
On the surface, it appears that neither quarterback separated themselves during practice, but when you look a bit deeper, the “or” listing is a clear indication of who the best quarterback was during camp.… [Read More]
44,276 may have seen a glimpse of what the future/the first 5 holds for Ohio State at this year’s Spring Game, which the Scarlet (offense) dominated the Gray (Defense) 59 to 27.
The score line makes it seem like the offense was the juggernaut of the 2 sides, but honestly both teams had their moments and the defense captured some life as they harassed all 4 QB’s at some point during the game.
In this recap, we’ll focus JUST on the QB’s, since that appears to be the big talking point going into the 2011 season. So who will start in the first 5 games without TP? Let’s take a look.
With spring practice well underway and the spring game quickly approaching, it is time to move from “way too early looks” at each position into some more informed analysis based on practice reports.
[Note: I apologize for not getting to the defensive backs in my “way too early looks”.]
This offseason has been a tumultuous one to say the least. The tattoo revelations leading up to the Sugar Bowl and the resulting suspensions guaranteed a shadow over the off season. The additional news concerning Jim Tressel didn’t exactly make that shadow go away.
Fortunately, time heals all wounds, and cracking pads on the field helps to speed up that process- at least for me. After some time off from writing following the Tressel news conference (which is part of the reason why I didn’t get to the DBs), my enthusiasm for football is back in full swing.
So what follows … [Read More]
With the suspension of Terrelle Pryor, the starting QB for the first five games of 2011 will be one of the hottest topics this off season.
While there will be plenty of intrigue and fan interest, it won’t matter.
That’s right, who plays quarterback in the first five games of 2011 won’t matter… not even a little bit.
Okay, okay, long term it matters, but for the first five games of 2011 it makes no difference.
Why? because does anyone really think that Tressel will put a game in the hands of the new quarterback to win or lose?
It took Troy Smith and Terrelle Pryor two full seasons as the starter before they earned Tressel’s trust and were moved from the realm of ‘game manager’ to winning a game throwing the ball… and even then, Tressel still wins games in November by pounding the rock on … [Read More]
tBBC’s newest edition and recruiting guru checks in with the class of 2010.
While we may be looking at a fairly small class of 18 newcomers, they seem to be creating quite the early buzz! Here’s a look at 7 of them making some early noise…
Corey “Philly” Brown – He has already been coined with the nickname “Philly” for his hometown. He has caught the eye of some of his teammates. The early buzz is he has the open field moves and speed to be a threat.
Christian Bryant – The Comparison to Antoine Winfield is already getting thrown around. While I think it is way too early to mention him in that same breath, it is great to hear that while small in stature he is showing a very physical style of play in practice so far. It will be hard for him to find playing time behind … [Read More]
