The playoff committee needs to look deeper when they decide on who is in and who is out. Instead of looking at television ratings and the name pick the team that is hot, but also look at whom they have beaten and when it took place. Take the Buckeyes they beat an Oklahoma team that was not really playing well compared to the end of the season. These are important when making decisions about a team. Take USC as well they struggled early, but was a tough team to beat down the stretch. Ohio State was not even their conference champion, so that should have held a lot of wait with the committee, but apparently it didn't.
The committee did get Alabama and Clemson right, but most of us could have done that ourselves. Ohio State was not the fourth best team in country and we all see that, so hopefully the committee was watching and squirming in their seats.

I do like J.T. Barrett a lot, but the reality in my opinion he is not the best quarterback on the team. I think Braxton Miller is much better at quarterback. The problem with putting the quarterback back at the helm is the Buckeyes reply need him at wide receiver. Miller gives the Buckeyes the best chance to win another National Championship. I do think Barrett or Jones can help them as well, but talent wise Miller is the best of the three.
Miller will probably not play quarterback again as it will hurt his chances to make the NFL Draft. Look for Miller to concentrate on wide receiver this season. I still think he gives the Buckeyes the best chance.

By now everyone knows that the Ohio State Buckeyes will probably be moving Braxton Miller to HB/wideout this coming season. Many people feel this is a good move for the Buckeyes and Miller. I am not so sure about that one. There are many different things I do not like about the move, and some I do like. Let us look deeper into this and see what the right move is for Braxton Miller and The Buckeyes.
Now this will give the Buckeyes a chance to add another offensive weapon to there already talented offense. Many people think that is a good thing. In one way it is and another way it is not. This gives Miller a chance at another injury which you really do not want to see. Yes, Ohio State has plenty of quarterbacks, but you never are guarantee they will play like they did last season. Miller should benefit from the change in the sense his draft stock should rise if he does well. It could also fall if he gets injured or struggles in his new role.
In the end, I just think you are risking too much and losing him for all year is not what you want to do. If you limit his playing time that is an option, but wont make him happy. Either way you go there are pluses and minuses. I'm glad I'm not making this call on this young man's future.

There have been many amazing stories about Jones most about his arm strength. Even by his own account Jones says he can throw it 80-85 yards which is simply amazing. In practice players have watched him throw it 60 yards from one knee. If that story is true that is amazing as well. The one thing about Cardale Jones he is more of a pro type quarterback and in the Buckeyes offense that is a good thing.
The one thing we have learned about Cardale Jones he is a big time college quarterback. He has not let the pressure get to him. He has been poise under the gun and even if he does not start next season he has made a lasting impression. The NFL is always looking for players with cannons for arms with poise.

The Buckeyes have a new coach in Urban Meyer and the Buckeye faithful will look for him to get this program back to the top. I have no doubt he will, but let us take a look at the Buckeyes schedule coming into the 2012-2013 season.
The first four games should help the Buckeyes get a fast start as they are not too tough at all. After that though the Big Ten schedule starts and it gets a lot tougher. On Sept 29th they go play Michigan State on the road that is a tough test for them. They also have Penn State and Wisconsin on the road as well two more tough road games. The Buckeyes in my opinion are looking at and 10-2 or 9-3 record this season. That is not bad considering all they went through last season.

It is a non-athletic position and should be a good move for Jim Tressel. I do hope he does get back into coaching at some point as he was a good football coach. He made some bad decisions and that really hurt him. Getting a fresh start is what he needed and starting somewhere else is a good idea for him. Hopefully, somewhere down the road we will see him again on the football field coaching.

For awhile it looked like it was going to be a repeat for the Nebraska Cornhuskers as the defense was getting shredded by the Buckeyes offense. In the second half, the defense played much better and Taylor Martinez showed people what he can do with his feet and his arm. Martinez made all the right plays and grew up as a quarterback on this night.
Many people do not realize that he only has a number of starts under his belt and he will make mistakes just like he did against Wisconsin. This time he came through when it counted. Martinez is growing as a quarterback and only will get better. This time around Martinez is all smiles as he led Nebraska to victory.
