    And now, I am angry. I am suing everyone involved in this miscarriage of public opinion. Maybe twice. Why wasn't Kirk Herbstreit on that list? Why? :slappy:

    Yeah. I love all those guys on the list, but just because Haskins only started one season doesn't dim his insane accomplishments. I don't care, he's my all time starting QB for OSU. Only Smith comes close to his command and I'd probably take Fields at #3 without much doubt.

    People are way too worried about recency bias when it's pretty obvious what we all saw.

    Haskins. This poll was made while Haskins and Barrett were in grade school, so I'm cutting the authors some slack.

    The age old argument of “Best” vs “Accomplished the Most” where the latter is often defined as seeing how many boxes are checked on a list, where the list is always made of a combination of things that most fans care about and a bunch of other checkboxes that are different for everyone

    An example list:

    Heisman
    NC
    B1G Championship
    Silver Football
    Captain
    Years Started
    Games Started
    Number of Games Won

    etc ad nauseum

    Oh I was specifically talking about the 11W article. No hate for the poll makers.

    Just sayin':

    Ohio State begs to differ:

    [​IMG]

    Led by All-Americans John Brockington, Jim Stillwagon, Jack Tatum and Mike Sensibaugh, the Ohio State Buckeyes claimed the Big Ten title and their most recent National Championship, the National Football Foundation crown, with a 9-1 record.

    The national championship was Woody Hayes’ fifth with the Buckeyes and the Big Ten championship was the third in a string of nine championships in 10 years. Some say the senior class of 1970 may have been the school’s greatest ever. In three years,the team won 27 of 29 games, three Big Ten championships and a pair of National championships. They broke nearly every school record at the time, plus all of the OSU attendance marks.

    Sorry 1926, it wasn't directed at you. At the time it was a decent group. But times change. You can't have a list like this without Haskins AND Barrett, IMHO.

    I nominate Braxton Miller as well, no QB in my lifetime put it all on the line like he did. Capable passer and Vick esque runner with a Carlos Hyde mindset. Not his fault he was forced into the fire as a Freshman and had some questionable play calls later on in his career.

    Well, to be fair it was a really tough call between Herbie and Bauserman.

    He had two more career touchdown passes than Les Horvath.

    I wrote in OSU's #3 all-time TD passer in the college football playoff.

    Well, kind of tough to not go with Fields at this point but with the ever evolving game and having Day at OSU we keep finding a new GOAT every couple of years.

    I am going to get out in front of it and vote for McCord. No check that Stroud. I mean Miller. Ewers, definitely Ewers.

    The original post was from October 18 of 2011. Would have ANYONE guessed that starting literally the next season, we would end up going through 5 of the greatest QBs to ever lace them up in the Horseshoe, literally back to back to back to back to back?

    All respect to Troy Smith, Rex Kern, Joe Germaine, but give me Brax/Barrett/Jones/Haskins and Fields. And obviously that doesn't include a guy who won a Heisman and Natty and had statistically one of the most insane seasons ever in Joe Burrow.

    Crazy how the game has changed, yes, but it's still insane to think about the QB run this program has been on since Urban came in.
