    At least it’s a realistic goal. It’s not like the kid is playing for Michigan or something.

    Everyone that knew Tua before last night was not surprised as no moment was too big for him. That also means there's some stellar confidence there.

    You also won't hear much trash talking out of him from what I can see. He'll rip your heart out with his talent and poise, and that will be your undoing, not his mouth.

    I have zero problem with the confidence, and not much of a problem with the chatter. But as the veteran knows, talk is cheap (and problematic). Go do it.

    Commitment and Consistency Principle. Dr. Robert Cialdini. If one commits to something publicly they are more likely to follow through. Dr. Bob held a visiting fellow appointment at tOSU at one point.

    And I dig it... the team needs a different personality then what JT brought.

    JT was mellow so it's nice to have QBs who are a bit more confident publicaly

    I wouldn’t call JT mellow at of most vocal dudes behind scene in OSU history. In fact, according to a few people it almost felt contrived and too over the top. It looked nice on pregame promo material.....I think some inside program felt it was overkill at times....and started to ring a bit hollow.

    Yeah I meant publically... i can definitely see your point about being over the top. In those videos used for hype he would literally be going off.

    Me personally I would get tired of that and would borderline on disgust.. then again I'm very laid back in person (a little fired up here on gameday tho sometimes).

    There's definitely time and place for motivation no doubt though. Just have to read the situation

    I'm very impressed with Tua. Can't root against a kid with that kind of confidence and class.

    A lot like Martell, from what I can see. Could be some epic battles between them.

    I see a clear, villainous, crimson & cream reason to hope he never completes another pass and quits football in shame.

    Cialdini is a first class guy. A big name in the persuasion literature in psychology. Have chatted with him several times over the years and he is a mensch. You would never guess that he is over 70.

    He was a young assistant professor at Ohio State between 1973-74 in the Psychology faculty. Still had kind words to say about the passion in Columbus for the Buckeyes last time I saw him.

    I love that both QB''s talked that shit.

    I also have zero problem with Dre'Mont checking Tate. Gotta let the kids know who's in charge even if you agree. That's how I took it. Jones was telling Tate that he hasn't earned the right to pop off publicly yet. I mean, I can't imagine a single starter not having the exact same thought

    He is. Only met him once and that was more in passing at a conference. I was Quant / Cognitive so my world didn’t overlap with his much... other than taking a Social Cognition class in grad school.

    The Social Psych people were always pretty cool. Did misdial a number at Stanford while looking for a copy of an unpublished dissertation once... the number I dialed was Phil Zimbardo (Stanford Prison Experiment). He was totally cool and actually helped me find the person that I was looking for when he could have totally hung up.

    TATE THE GREAT? Urban Meyer has gone out of his way to praise Tate Martell since last season when he "almost" put Tate in against Rutgers and "burned that redshirt."

    Martell has yet to play a live snap at Ohio State and entered spring ball No. 3 in a three-man race. Meyer, however, has praised him in unique ways.


    "Tate had a much better day today," Meyer said. "He's got a skill set that's a little bit JT-ish as far as the quarterback run, he's just built for that and he actually threw the ball well too."

    Now there are two ways to be compared to Barrett, the leadership and the play on the field. This isn't Meyer comparing Martell to Barrett the leader, because Meyer wouldn't do that for any quarterback on this roster. Not yet. Have to earn that. But part of Meyer's infatuation with Barrett was the get out of jail free card that's provided by an elusive quarterback.

    Martell's got that. So in a quarterback competition that's still even -- Meyer said that again on Monday -- it sounds like Martell is stuck in Meyer's brain a little bit as he tries to make this decision.

    Meyer likes Martell, no doubt. But part of that is keeping a notoriously capricious quarterback engaged. Martell could be a backup if Burrow or Haskins transfer after failing to win the job.

    Not saying Burrow or Haskins will transfer if they lose (though it'd make more sense for Burrow than Haskins). But it's a contingency for which Meyer wants to be prepared.

    Say Haskins wins and Burrow bolts. Maybe Martell wants to leave, too? Better to keep him gruntled. Otherwise, your backup could be a true freshman coming off a knee injury.
