Yeah too bad LSU got beat by Arkansas and couldn't make it to a BCS bowl. You know, the team OSU beat on 1/4/11. Oh, let me go ahead and say why you lost to Arkansas...it was that given game on that given field. Isn't that about right? Just like last year when you got beat in your bowl game.

I love it, except exchange 1 and 2! Miller will get there eventually, but Guiton is the only one that is going to get us a W in Coral Gables and a W at home against MSU, particularly how we tend to play mediocre early in the season anyway. As an aside, Graham is even more injury prone than Miller. He was hurt so much up here in the Chicago area in high school that I could never even go see him play. In any event, I haven't recalled a QB situation like this one in a long, long time and there are a lot of interesting possibilities. But, as your ranking indicates, just PLEASE don't let it be Joe B.! He's no doubt a hard worker and great kid, but I think he hangs 1 or 2 L's on us in the first 5 games, and that means that Tat-Gate costs us a shot at playing for another National Championship.

You're not kidding. Seemed to me these scores put the lie to the LSU fan's boast that LSU would have incinerated the Bucks--as if some kind of unavoidable natural law would be violated if OSU beat an SEC team. Like the Olentangy suddenly flowing in reverse for no reason. Maybe somebody who's back there can let me know if it's still flowing in the same direction after the Sugar Bowl result.

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 !!
Do you really think someone is going to take your suggestion and "sever ties" with Pryor?
You people are really out there...

I think Miller needs to redshirt and play Guiton or Graham. Miller has the talent but the Bucks need to bring him along at a normal pace. Go Bucks
I completely agree. Graham and Guiton should battle it out.

I saw Miller play against Davidson. The kid is the real deal. He starts by the 3rd game.

We all know that the performance of a high school athlete against high school players doesn't mean anything when it comes time to write the starting line up in college. Justin Zwick was the next Dan Marino coming out of high school...he held a clipboard his entire career because he couldn't compete on the college level. The worst thing to do is throw Miller in. They should redshirt him and let Graham or Guiton take the first 5 games.
