    I'll take Troy over JT every day of the week and twice on Sunday but other than that, yeah.

    I'd like to see Troy Smith run the same offense Barrett did. He certainly had the skills to do that and would have been awesome at it, if he can make the correct pre-snap and post-snap reads. I think Barrett was outstanding at making the correct reads. It's tough for me to choose anyone over Barrett with that offensive gameplan, mostly because I don't know if they can make that read. Yeah, I'd take Fields over Barrett. Miller, Haskins, and Smith are all close for me.

    I should have clarified; I'd take Troy Smith coached by Ryan Day. JT Barrett was the perfect QB for Urban Meyer in his day.

    I also know which coach's offense is most appropriate for college football right now.

    There's probably a pretty large number of former tOSU QB's that would have been better off with Day or Herman at OC. For as big of a douche as he turned into Herman went from Miller to Barrett to Jones over the course of a year and OC'd a championship. For Fields sake I hope he can work some magic with the Bears.

    Not that I think Steve Bellisari should belong on any of these lists (I can think of some other lists I'd put him on), but I wonder what he might have done with Herman as OC.
    I think it's tough to tell because it all requires very quick decision making on some reads. And Bellisari made some lousy decisions, but we don't know what he might have done in that offense.

    The story that a coach on Tressel's staff was overheard saying "this might be the dumbest quarterback I've ever seen" when they took over, is a story I choose to believe.

    He would be a Herbstriet level bad QB no matter who was the coach.

    I love JT as a guy, but he couldn’t read defenses post-snap and was an average passer. In person you could really see how many wide open receivers he missed every game.

    Yeah, the thought of Troy in a Meyer/Herman/Day offense is tantalizing. The guy won the Heisman with Jim Bollman calling plays.

    Better yet, imagine Pryor running Herman's offense. I don't know about TP under Day, because I think he was a very "meh" thrower, but in the Meyer/Herman offense...wooh doggy. He might have run for 1500 and passed for 3000.

    What could Bauserman have been in Day's offense? Fucking hell, fall camp can't get here soon enough.

    All you have to do is watch Meyer's successful years in UF with Tebow, and that's what the offense a OSU would look like with Pryor. I still think his senior year would've been HUGE at OSU, that Arkansas bowl game saw the offense really start to click. Pryor is easily one of the biggest what ifs in program history. He could've been our VY/Cam, a huge, uber athletic QB who was an insane mismatch as a DT QB, and defenses weren't ready for those type of QBs.

    Well considering whom Pryor had as QBs coach… I’d still like to see him in year 3 under Day … as he wouldn’t have been coached by a film student

    I’d still like to see him never come to OSU and have his arrogance help take down a beloved coach.

    B1G QBOY dominance over the past decade:

    Hmmmm. I wonder who's going to win it this year...

    The wildest part is that even in 2015, the only reason Connor Cook won the award is that J.T. Barrett and Cardale Jones split time. If either one of them played the entire season, we're looking at nine straight, going on 10.

    Oh, and Braxton Miller's best throw of 2011 puts Russell Wilson's to shame (and gave him his only Big Ten L).

    Entire article:

    Each of the four quarterbacks Eleven Warriors spoke with after last week’s camps – Lonergan, Edge, Hudson and Watson – pointed to specific, individualized feedback they received from Day that they will now apply to their continued development as they prepare for their junior seasons.

    Which B1G coaching staff has had the real "QB whisperers"?

    Hint: It sure as hell isn't scUM.

    Jim Harbaugh May Be Whispering, But Quarterbacks Aren't Listening
