Joe Bauserman already had enough time to prove himself.

The only way I would use him if the others are truly not ready...the man is only 10 years younger then me..lol time to move on....

I mean no disrespect to him, but he should have stayed with baseball. He was a much better pitcher then a QB...IMO

Not impressed, no way he compares to Pryor, the guy cant scramble or throw the ball. My bet he is another bench warmer who will see little action.

Terrelle Pryor said,
I'll coach them all up as best I can to get some victories while I'm gone," he said.

I have to admit....I did get a chuckle from that remark. Maybe he should spend more time getting some coaching himself

The Buckeyes are deep at the QB position and Joe Bauserman , Or Kenny Guiton or Taylor Graham or Braxton Miller are all capable at QB for tOhioStateUniversity . The Buckeyes need to focus more on the Defense where several stars are lost to graduation . TP is the 2010 Rose Bowl and 2011 Sugar Bowl MVP and will start at QB when his suspension is up . Braxton Miller is very talented but Bauserman and Guiton have experience and maturity and Taylor Graham has the size at 6'4" 228 lbs .... Go Buckeyes in 2011 Season !

Anyone who thinks TP is a great QB hasn't watched much football. There are at least 8-10 QBs this year who would have been tremendous if they had the team support that TP had. I would not put him in the top 10. As for next year the Bucs will be better if he sits on the bench the whole season!!!

It will be a three team race.
Buaserman can go park cars, HE SMELLS.
And... Please Pryor, don't bother these guys especially Braxton. He needs no help from you.
You should be his understudy. Braxton is a passer, that can run when nessesary and already reads defenses.
Plus, learn to respect the awards that you get
One day you'll wish you had as years down the road you sit and wonder how stupid you were in trading it in for tatoos that you'll wish you could take off with an sos pad.

As an alum, I bleed scarlet and gray. It is difficult to put in words how much TP disappointed me with his actions regarding tatoos and OSU awards. He's done a wonderful job as our QB for three years but it's time to sever ties with him. I've seen enough of Bauserman to know he's not our future. That team up north has proved that run and gun QBs(Guiton) are not the way to go. I would say commit to either Graham or Miller based upon the drills and get ready for another great season in 2011. Go Bucks !!

If the Buckeyes start out 5-0, which is very possible (their schedule is weak as ussual) and the new QB is playing well, does Tressel bench the new QB and start Pryor? Wiil be an interesting season for you Buckeye Fans. Having a Conference Championship Game, for the Buckeyes will also be interesting. Advice: The Buckeyes would be wise not to appeal the suspensions. Just take your punishmnet and move on. You do not want the NCAA mad at you and do a full investigation of your program. Your program is pretty dirty!

I think you forgot that you play Conference Championship Game, so that would be a total of 13 gamse not 12. It will be interesting to see how the Buckeyes, play in the Championship Game after playing their rival Michigan. Can OSU be emotionaly prepared after "THE GAME"

It is time for a reality check! A 5-0 start would be incredible. Who will the quarterback throw to? What if Brewster goes pro? That means 4 new starters on the O-line - not pretty! Who will block for the quarterback or the running backs? Plus we have to replace 7 starters on defense. Let's call this a rebuilding year and look to '12 If these guys sit out 5 games and Brewster goes, I'll be happy with a 3-2 start.

Old GATOR BOY is at it again isn't he??? He knows what our problems are and how dirty we are. GIVING US ADVICE??? ISN'T THAT SOMETHING? BLESS YOUR HEART. YOU FAILED TO MENTION THE RINGS ACTUALLY BELONGED TO THE PLAYERS.
They were not stolen lap tops or stolen test papers turned in as some one elses. Not kicked out of college. And we are dirty????
GATOR BOY, why don't you get off our web site? Tell the GATORS how to clean up their own mess then come back to us. Your advice is sure getting old.

Can anybody fill me in on the kind of high schools where each of the new guys played? I know it doesn't ultimately account for all that much, but I don't know Ohio high schools, or Midwest ones--at least am not current. Who went to large, high profile high school programs? Were any in small high schools, who played other small schools? I know Colt McCoy and others went to extremely small schools--this isn't a slam at small schools. It would help to get some input from any of you back there who are familiar with the high school programs.

Opinions, opinions opinions...Mr Tressel and staff know what they have to do to pick a starter QB better than any one else.Certainly they do not need advise from individuals that do not know what really goes on behind the scenes. Why don't we just wait for the decision made by the parties involved and know the options much better than any one else does? Why to stir the pot at this point?. Whoever the starter will be is going to start ONLY for the games Pryor won't be allow to play.

Like the french Phylospher and essayist Voltaire once said "opinions have cause more ills than the plague or earthquakes on this little globe of ours".
