Pryor made key plays in the following big games:
PSU
Iowa
Miami
Oregon
Arkansas
That's 5 of the biggest games in his 3 years. He also played well when Boeckman wasn't in against Texas, they just lost that game. He played well in the last 2.5 quarters in the Wisconsin game this year after nobody played well in the first 1.5 and they almost came back.
Pryor fell apart in the following games costing them the game:
Purdue
There was no excuse for that, and I think he and the rest of the Buckeye team would agree with you there.
I don't count that Purdue game, there was some fishy officiating going on in that game! A couple key calls that kept momentum in Purdue's corner!

Boeckman had his chances and screwed up. He was not a mobile qb and beanie was hurt. That's why osu needed to make pryor the starter. Pryor helped osu win two bcs bowls. I say redshirt Braxton miller. Why waste a year if he only plays in five games?
More like Boeckman got screwed over! Tressel set Boeckman up to fail in that USC game. He wanted TP in so bad he couldn't stand it but it went against his "senior" loyalty. Not too mention Boeckman led us to the NC game when we were picked 3rd at best in the Big 10. Another thing I believe, JT was afraid of USC and that's why he played that stupid play calling with swapping the QB's every down. He wanted to have an excuse when he lost, he just didn't expect to got his clock cleaned! He almost panicked against Arkansas this year. He went back to his same tricks of trying not to lose and let Arkansas back in the game with a chance to win.

All this talk of how great TP is and he will be the best stat wise QB in OSU history. Great but let's make it clear OSU has and never will be the likes of BYU, FLA, USC and all the others that throw the ball 50 times a game with gaudy 350 yds passing and 6 tds a game etc. I take that with a grain of salt the best stat wise QB mantra. 2000 yds rushing in 3 yrs and he takes over the lead from Rod Gerald? Shoeless guy at Meatchicken had that almost this last year alone. Cam "cheater" Newton had that many yards this year alone. I know I know I believe the TP hype: I quote "put me in any of those offenses and I would dominate". Ok show me brother! As for 34- 4 I got it, but he did not do that alone and I can say a defense that only gives up a max of 12-14 pts a game or less had a lot to do with that record too.
So note to Tress… let the beast loose and let TP not throw into triple coverage, stare down his primary receiver and run with the ball in one hand and get it slapped out of his hands going for it with the Penn State, Purdue, Whisky and Arky games. He makes some bad decisions a three year starter should not make on and off the field. So let's not anoint him the greatest QB ever just yet...Agree, he may give us the best chance to win but let's see what happens while he is suspended because it may be a mute point if someone else does not step in etc. by the time he comes back.

Could be true, but even TP said he had a terrible game.

I felt like benching Boeckman after that game was tantamount to blaming him for the loss. It was a stinker on all counts but the preparation and playcalling were the real problems. USC seemed like they were in the huddle and had a copy of the playbook.

A lot of that was because of the QB swap you mentioned. USC used Clay Matthews as a spy when TP was in, and as a missile when Boeckman was under center. Boeckman never found his groove in that game.

I think we can both agree Tressel's play calling is predictable! Many times after games the other side will make comments like, "we knew what they were running". Mostly the big games like Texas and USC. JT uses too many special formations for special plays along with specialized personell for these plays. Makes an easy read!

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!
That was a real intelligent statement. This isn't high school and you aren't the big man on campus now! He doesn't speak or act anything like Pryor did at this age. Everything that comes out of his mouth has been intelligent. It also sounds like this young man has a great work ethic. Something Pryor never knew about at this age.

So save your drivel for something you actually have a clue about. You make yourself sound like a poser. Ever touch a football outside of P.E. class?

I'm excited for Miller. However, after watching his play in the Underarmor all-american game, I don't see how he can be prepared to lead the team into the season.

I agree with you. Some of the formation/player packages are just way too obvious, particularly given the situations that they are used.

He should possibly red shirt. If he plays it should be with the intent of improving him. He should be placed in situations were he is reading defenses and not just running read options etc. We don't have to teach this guy how to be a runner. We have to teach this guy to be Tom Brady like. His feet will be automatic. He has to be developed as a QB. It would be best if he was redshirted, worked in as a red shirt freshman, and is a complete Stud QB his sophmone and junior year with the option of leaving if he's all that by his Senior year.

I live in the Dayton area and have seen Braxton play numerous times and he can flat out play . I've always been a big T P fan nut Miller already has a more natural throwing motion , better machanics and possibly even a stronger arm . If he can learn the offense and stay healthy he WILL contribute to this team !

Go Buckeyes.
Your note is very uncharitable naming someone a"freak athlete" and a "false messiah." But your lack of charity is more than matched by the vulgarity of your "name".

Are you idiots serious? I have to admit TP has made a couple of silly mistakes. But on the field none of the QB's we have rate close to him. He is a winner and one of the best QB's in college football. Id like to see Kenny get a shot the first 5 games. He has showed some nice stuff when given the opportunity! Braxton Miller will be a good Qb one day but his body is like a little boy compared to TP when he showed up as a freshmen. I have watched Braxton Miller online and he is no TP. All TP has done is win win win! Thats a fact. And if you dont see how he has improved year after year you are just stupid. Does he need to grow up...yes. Is he head over heels 10 times better then any QB Ohio State can put on the field....HELL YES!! Lets go TP lets Go BUCKS!!!
