I hope all the hype is true but some other guy had all the hype and we are still waiting for him to devlop and on top of that we have to wait five games before he gets into his now 4th yr in the system down...Good luck to you Braxton but Kenny is pretty good too...

Move on with Kenny or Braxton, bring back Terrelle as a wideout/tightend and maybe run trickplays or wildcat with him. i believe he will get drafted higher at that position rather then QB

I'll believe the hype when I see it on the field - Pryor is a perfect example of the media making someone out to be just a little more than they actually are! This isn't high school and you aren't the big man on campus now!

TP is still the starter and gives the team the best chance 2 win the big games,no of the other qb's hav any real game experience..31-4,I don't know what everyone expected from tp coming out of high school but what other qb on our roster gives opposing defenses nightmares the wat tp does. Get off your high horses and move on tp is the best qb on this team bar none

I can't wait to see the competition between Miller, Jones, Graham, and Guiton to be the #1 QB for the first 5 games. If TP really has changed, he will take these guys under his wing and teach them the ins and outs of being a QB at OSU. He should help keep their noses clean, and when TP leaves, we will have a great QB to step in with some experience already!

Give this kid the reigns and drop Pryor like a lead balloon. We should for Student atheletes...Not athelete students looking for a payday. Grow a pair Sweater Vest and drop Pryor before the spring game and give others a chance.

If you think that the majority of high profile recruits and college athletes aren't looking for a payday, you are sadly mistaken. If Miller or anyone else steps up and does well, they will quickly be looking for a payday. It's the name of the game.

LMAO that so many people are ready to kick a senior (who has improved each year) with a 31-4 record as a starter - including two BCS bowl wins - to the curb in favor of someone who has never played a down of college ball. Pryor is far from perfect but, when eligible, clearly gives his team the best chance to win.

Thank you! The kid makes opposing coaches completely change their defensive game plan around him and has won 88% of the games he has started for OSU. Not to mention he is breaking QB records at OSU and has had game winning drives/plays in big games. Yeah, let's send him packing and bring in a kid from high school that has been injury prone and hasn't even walked onto a college field. Very smart move. I wish these people would take over the head coaching job and we could get rid of Tressel!(Heavy sarcasm)

I wouldn't throw him to the curb as we know, the QB position is the hardest in the world to pick and Bauserman is bad! But I disagree, I think TP makes us predictable. We are so TPcentric that all they have to do is focus on him. The good news is, just because you know what we're doing doesn't mean you can stop him! One thing that helped TP this year was when we moved to the power "I". It made it harder to predict our plays and allowed TP more time to make decisions. TP doesn't make the best decisions when forced to think quickly, which is key for a QB!

Just my thoughts.

I hope he gets a chance if he is that good. On the other hand, I hope he is not another overhyped bust false messiah. For once it would be nice to have a real QB instead of a "freak athlete".

Go Buckeyes.

I cant believe what I'm reading!!!!

For the ones who demanding Tressel to get rid of TP, your all morons....

This is a QB who has lost only 4 games so far in his collage career..31-4...this is a QB who's
breaking records at OSU...and still has time to break more..

This is a QB who never lost to UM.

Do you realize how many other schools would love to have him...I wouldnt trade him for nobody...

You guys make me sick....

I agree, but think about what you just said. We moved to the power "I" and it opened things up for TP because the coaches who had completely changed their defensive strategy to shut down TP all of a sudden saw Herron rushing for 100+. Think about what TP might have been if we had a running back like Beanie the past two years. Now we get the running game going and TP has had a lot better year. While it is true he doesn't always make the best decisions, we didn't lose any games last year because of it. And in the Iowa game, if it wasn't for his decision to take off and run, we would have lost 2 (that paired with the Posey drop). So he may not be the absolute best statistical QB in the game, I don't think anyone claims that, but he does make the OSU offense the most productive when he is in. Now who knows? Maybe we get one of these young QB's that comes out and shines in the first 5 games. Maybe we can spread Pryor out every once in awhile and get the ball to him in space or rotate QB's to really keep defenses guessing. But my comment was directed at those who said we should completely take him out of the position and put a non experienced player out of high school in and actually think the offense would be better.

Compared to Terrelle, Braxton has: 1) better throwing mechanics; 2)better vision of the field; 3)a quicker release; and runs north and south without fear...but all that has been against high school competition. Lets see how he performs against this next level. Knowing JT, Braxton will have to walk on water to get the start ...even over Guiton and Bauserman. And we can't forget Graham either.
Anyway it is a "class A" problem to have.

To have QB Terrelle Pryor back for his senior season with a record of 33 - 3 and to have the # 1 high school QB in Braxton Miller in 2010 -11 coming to Ohio State along with senior Joe Bauserman and Junior Kenny Guiton ...The Buckeyes are loaded at QB which is probably the most important position in football . Sure , To win , you gotta have a team effort but having outstanding QBs sure helps . Go Bucks !

Is Ken Gordon saying that in 2011, Terrelle Pryor is Todd Boeckman and Braxton Miller is Terrelle Pryor?

Well, regardless of what ever happens. I do believe we have enough QB's to discuss for awhile.

We need to remember their is more to football than just throwing to someone or try to run away from someone.

Remember the game saving interception that won our bowl game. That young lad didn't just happen to be there. He knew what he was supposed to do. Learning sessions for a QB are tougher than that.

As for TP.... losing just one game this year ain't bad and remember, the lose can't all be pinned on him. he brought us back and wasn't the one to allow the decisive TD.
