JT Barret

Posted: Jul 23, 2018 9:36 AM

Was a senior quarterback that led a team to a playoffs appearance and was blasted out of the first round of the playoffs and was mocked by our defense for being an average QB.

Sounds pretty damn similar to our 2017 tigers.
Kind of ironic don't ya think?

Seriously, whats the point in posting something like this? You don't think KB knows 90% of the fan base wants TL to start??

I don't care when TL starts. I just want him to have had enough 'meaningful snaps' that he's ready to ramp it up for the playoff, because KB stepped down for the CFP game, not up.

I don't want to lose another game--of any level--because we didn't have a chance to get a QB ready, when "we can win with any of these guys" so long as we give them ALL the first team reps.

If it takes 900 live game snaps and 2000 first team practice snaps to get a QB ready for the CFP, then make TL the starter now. If it takes less, Dabo should take his time. But if it takes more than that, we're stuck riding our only experienced hand, KB, and hoping he overcomes both the opponent and his own conservative nature.

Very accurate comparison. KB May start but TL must be ready to go by the playoffs.

did we have a senior QB lead our Tigers to the playoffs

I'm pretty sure Ohio State didn't have a choice but to play Barrett. The backup at the time (Joe Burrow) was only a 4-star, 8th overall rated dual-threat QB (via 247), so nothing special. I think he actually transferred to LSU this season due to lack of playing time. If OSU had an elite QB like TLaw on the bench, I'm not sure Barrett would've played. Just my two cents, though.

1: only a 4 Star, so nothing special. Hahaha
2: pretty sure they also have a couple of 5 stars on the bench one of which being the guy likely to start this year, Dwayne Haskins. I’m familiar with him because Clemson also recruited and offered him out of Maryland. I think what most people didn’t understand about Barrett was his leadership abilities. Obviously not a DW type talent, but he was the glue in the locker room.

I’ve tried to explain this about KB but people seem to have their minds made up. I’d our Oline was better last year, KB would have looked a lot better. I think we will see big improvements this year with the Oline and therefore, Bryant. He’s an experience leader n the locker room. He’s been to the playoff. I’m good with him this year. TL’s time will come.

Do you want the O Line to be great run blockers or pass blockers? It's rare to do both

Or do you just want to make excuses for whatever decision Kelly makes? Remember the OL in 2016? Would you say it was better or worse than in 2017? Because Kelly scrambled 80% of the time he played behind the 2016 line, too.
