    That guy sure has an impressive resume. Can't wait to see what he can do for Braxton's footwork and accuracy.

  2. While not having any bowl practices hurts the entire team, this at least helps a little bit.

    This is awesome. Finally, finally, finally, a QB coach with a pedigree.

    I am not sure how much the guy charges, but maybe he will take a percentage of any future pro earnings?? I would think this type of thing will play huge dividends on the possibility of a pro career.

    Also, are players allowed to run their own drills inside, kind of like summer 7 on 7? I am not sure I ever knew where 7 on 7 drills happened.

    I know they were talking about putting blocking sleds in the workout facility.

    Hmmm, are they not allowed to go to the park and practice?

    Scary if this helps Brax. I look at Tragic Martinez and the work that Calhoon did for him in the offseason, and it worked wonders. Guy was almost a completely different player.

    Almost.

    His throwing motion still makes me cringe but at least it looks like a guy throwing the ball now (Martinez). :)

    Not sure if there is another way to ask this. Has Brax cost us high profile receivers in the recruitment process? Or is it a scheme/play calling thing with a 105th pass rank? It just seems that with one of my least favorite phrases, "Percy Harvin role" being thrown around at least one high profile guy would take a chance to be "that guy" and play for the Buckeyes and Urban on the National stage.

    Edit: For the record I think Jalin Marshall be just fine!

    Well, I see Marshall as pretty high profile, but I know that you're referring to some other big time recruits.

    I think it's just a matter of Miller pretty much having to take this past season to relearn things and and develop basics that should've been developed in his freshman year. You can't really get around that and it showed with the ranking and the offensive struggles at times.

    So did he cost OSU? No I don't think so. Miller and the coaches are/were just in a situation of having to work on basics and they couldn't worry about possible future recruits. It's just unfortunate that a great hometown talent choose to go to a school that also has one of the premier passers in the country, but it makes sense too.

    I meant to add that I wasn't really talking about Quick even though I think Bridgewater is clearly a better passer. I think the hometown and family ties had as much to do with his decision as much as anything else.

    TooTallMenardo Hug it out

    The "hometown" school has bitten Ohio State quite hard the last couple of years in the recruiting department. Between Diggs wanting to stay in Maryland, Quick in Louisville, and to a certain lesser extent DGB at Mizzou.

    Here's to hoping Gibson commits to the Bucks and not Pitt, and I'll be very happy.
