The way you cook it’d probably be pretty good 😂 👨‍🍳
I don't know how to cook KOM wool...

I'll be anxious to see Joe Burrow play, and I'll root for him. He didn't win the job at OSU because he wasn't the best man for the job. those coaches get paid big money for good reason, and they have to make decisions based on what they see everyday in practice. I'm willing to trust in that.

Exactly. Why would you guys want Urban to trot out a pro style QB when he doesnt run a pro style offense? Truth be told, I couldnt care less if Urbans plane crashed tomorrow, but he's 1 of the greatest college coaches ever. He'll play whoever he can trust to run his offense the best. Burrow should never have went to play for him, it was stupid
WTF Not go play for the school you dreamed you'd play for and get recruited and offered a full ride? Maybe I missed something Red but I think you don't know all the details behind JB and OSU/Meyers. Either way like Ric said I think you all missed our point of wanting to see a local boy get an opportunity. I still love my Bucks but for the next 2 seasons I'll be putting all my attention to Burrows at LSU!
I get wanting to go to your dream school. But all you gotta do is look at what Meyer has run his whole career and realize it aint beneficial for Burrows skillset. It needs to be a business decision for someone like JB. It was bad business going to OSU if he had NFL aspirations. First of all, Meyer QB's dont succeed in NFL if they even make it. Second, he could get a great education at a lot of schools.

This jives with what dad and I talked about. It was never a good fit football wise, just "dream" wise. IMO, a little of this rests on JB and his decision to go to a system that doesn't fit him. I still think he should have seen some more game time to see how it shook out, but it's not all UM's fault IMO.

That train goes both ways though. Why would UM sign a QB that obviously didn't fit his style just to bench they guy.

Its added depth. Depth that is hard to find and keep.
True. A freshman QB who rarely got to play and had a totally different style than Bamas starting QB pulled out a miracle and won them the National Championship last year. Depth is critical.

Prolly signed him to keep the other conference teams from signing him, especially UM and PSU.

JB still succeeded and beat all the others in the stats in each of the past two spring games by throwing the damn football and letting his skill players around him shine and do their thing like a QB should do, otherwise WTF would any top talented WR,TE or athletic skill player come here in the first place? Yes, I agree with UM’s system isn’t geared exactly for his prostyle talent but it worked in the spring game every damn time but it was all for not. Why even have the stupid game if the best players don’t get rewarded if they shine better.
I’m done arguing my point. We’ll see how it goes from here.

I'm hearing some great things about our young DEs and that we may not miss Hubbard after all. Also saw a write up on CB Jeffery Okudah the other day that was really complimentary. Expected 1st rounder in the secondary is always welcome to those of us that suffered through the Tressel era!

I agree Jesse. Watch Chase Young blow up this year! Kid is UNREAL AND A
BEAST! With Nick Boza on the other side LOOK OUT!!! Hope our secondary can cover better than just face guarding all the damn time. Like to see them go back to basics now that Kerry Commbs is gone!
