QB CJ Stroud (Official Thread)

Discussion in 'Buckeye Football' started by HotMic, Sep 25, 2019.

    Buckeye86 I do not choose to discuss it

    On the Tim May podcast, Josh Myers compared the competition between Stroud and Miller to Haskins and Burrow, for what it’s worth.

    It's going to be a great QB battle! Jack still has a chance, but CJ looks so talented. Like has been mentioned multiple, there has to be a reason for Olave and Ruckert returning. They know one of these guys is Uber talented

    we have a great problem.. before pronouncing a winner... remember Zwick vs Smith...

    buchtelgrad04 Pain is an opinion.

    To add, I hated how his recruiting ranking dropped with no real explanation other than “we know stuff, trust us.” The recruiting analysts almost started the narrative that Jack wasn’t cut out for Ohio State.

    This is why I'm not letting myself pick a side. Fans will pick one or the other and then make excuses/take shots at the other one just in the hopes they were right.

    just like watching fields... sit back watch it all play out and be glad we’ve got 3 awesome guys to choose from.... it could be much worse

    ShowMeBuck You know what? Chicken butt.

    Look, I really hope Miller wins out because there is WAY WAY more hype on Stroud so that would mean that Miller is a stud.

    But it will be Stroud because his ceiling is much higher. And if he has any hiccups then I will be clamoring for Miller unless I hear McCord is looking strong. And if for some reason none of them work out then I’ll be hopping on the Ewers should start as a freshman train.

    I’ve got options.

    Absolutely how I feel too. Eerily similar to the Haskins and Burrow debates. It wasn't a losing situation for the most part but Burrow winning the Natty sure does make a lot of the Haskin folks second guess. These guys both seem to really root for each other though and I'm sure Day is even going to make them win the job from Ewers, McCord, Miller and Stroud. It would be awesome to keep all 4 til their Senior seasons but it's not going to happen. As long as there's not distraction or bad blood dividing the team we'll be in great hands.

    I'm sure having great Oline play and the best receiving group in the country won't hurt. Plus CJ has a 48 ypc average too so, bonus.

    I was/am a Haskins guy, and I still would've chosen Haskins at the time, he was still a top 3 Heisman votes, broke numerous B1G and OSU records and also went in the 1st round of the NFL draft. The winner and loser I'm sure will be in good positions. We shouldn't want any of these guys until seniors, IMO, them getting drafted high after being at OSU for 3yrs is one of the best recruiting tools in Day/Dennis' arsenal. Burrow's success worked in our favor, and now you're seeing the HS kids take notice. Even though, I personally think that Stroud could take this offense over and keep it elite, I think Miller and McCord can also do the same. What a time to be a Buckeye fan!


    At least we're not worrying about who's going to start between Joe Milton, Cade McNamara or JJ McCarthy :lol:

    Let's just hope the correct decision is made this time. While the constellation prize was great, Haskins is no Joe Burrow.

    Stop! Haskins was damn good, if we had a competent defense that year, then we would've been in the NC. He literally was winning us games with his arm(Dobbins didn't fully break out yet). The defense this time around seems to be better, as it couldn't be worse than the out of position Schiano/Grinch shit show. And I'd say that the WR corp of Olave, Wilson, Williams, JSN could be even better(more explosive) than Campbell, McLaurin, Dixon and Hill. Whomever wins the starting job has a heck of an offense to run. And not to mention having a much better OL. RB will be a question mark until the season begins as there's too much unknown, but we have more depth.

    This is just silly. Haskin's was much better then Burrow his first year started. Joe Burrow was no Joe Burrow during that competition. He made a huge jump his last year.

    Think you meant Defense there but I understand you. There was some thought though that with Burrow our running game would have been much better but you can't say much when the guy breaks almost every single season record possible. Just the way it goes in college football. We're in good shape right now is all I care
