    Couldn't have put it better myself. I can't wait to watch each possession he's in, you just know he's going to make play after play and get it done. His receivers are insanely talented but man does he make it easy on them. Every throw is right on the numbers, it's crazy how accurate he is.

    buckeyes_rock Great day to be a Buckeye

    We are very spoiled as fans right now for sure. When he misses a throw I'm like, "WTH just happened?" The one throw against PSU where he rolled right and threw it too low to the receiver about 5 yards up field...I was shaking my head thinking how could that happen. LOL!

    Ohio State’s Justin Fields was named Big Ten co-offensive player of the week.

    BASEBALL STAR. Justin Fields was born to be an elite quarterback and looks like he was assembled in a lab to play football.

    But it turns out, even if he didn't step foot on a football field after high school, he'd probably still be a millionaire athlete.

    Back at Harrison High, Fields was a prized shortstop with pop. Perfect Game ranked him as the 237th-best prospect in the game. MLB general managers called Fields’ father repeatedly, to beg him to convince Justin to stay in high school through spring just so they could draft him. But Justin wasn’t interested in money, if it meant missing the chance to prove he’s the best quarterback in America.

    “If it was a money thing, he'd have played baseball,” Ivant said. “If he'd have stayed for that spring in high school, he would've been drafted and maybe made a million bucks or so, then gave them 30 days and then off to college. But he didn't want to do that.”

    Y'all probably don't realize this, but I too had plenty of other opportunities to earn millions of dollars elsewhere. Instead, I chose to spend my days writing online words for your free consumption. You're welcome.

    I have a strong feeling we're going to get more than a few absurd Justin Fields stats this year, but this is already about as insane as I can imagine.

    And here's the best part – there's a solid, solid keep this stat alive another weekend. And the one after that.

    I gotta say they really are taking their role as a vehicle for promoting Justin Fields for the Heisman seriously. They bang the drum every day and they’re doing a pretty good job of it imho

    it doesn’t hurt that Justin is giving them plenty to say

    Just sayin': I do think Justin Fields is a lot closer to his peak than some of the other players, etc.

    Is a 238 passer rating good?

    What he’s doing right now is simply otherworldly. However good you thought he was a year ago, he has quite clearly turned it up a notch. Saturday was just another example.

    He completed 24-of-28 passes. He threw for 314 yards. He scored six touchdowns – five through the air and one on the ground – without any turnovers. He did just about whatever he wanted at will, tossing dimes into tight windows without almost ever making mistakes. It's uncanny.

    For the third straight game, he made it through the first quarter without an incompletion. And for the third game in a row, he heads into Sunday with more total touchdowns than incompletions on the season.

    Yes, Trevor Lawrence could again give Ohio State fits. And yes, Alabama has the pieces to scare the Buckeyes. But as long as Fields stays healthy, the Buckeyes can beat anyone in college football. He’s just that good.

    By the time Ohio State’s players and coaches wrapped their arms around each other, facing their 600 or so friends and family members in the crowd to singing “Carmen Ohio,” the eyes of most college football fans had left Big Ten Network in favor of seeing the end of the Clemson-Notre Dame showdown.

    Those who continued to break down what happened on Saturday night in the Horseshoe, however, might not have settled on exactly one thing in particular. Even head coach Ryan Day didn't quite know what to think about his team's performance in the immediate aftermath, and nor did three-time team captain linebacker Tuf Borland.

    “It’s hard to comment on what exactly happened when you haven’t watched the film yet,” Borland said.

    On one hand, Ohio State secured a 49-27 win, moving to 3-0 by defeating Rutgers at home. The offense again put up prolific numbers, especially through the air, to keep the Buckeyes among the highest-scoring offenses in college football. They entered halftime with a 35-3 lead, coming out of the gates with what Borland described as “the way we would want to start out a game” despite a week with a thrown-off routine due to the team not practicing on Election Day. They extended the ongoing streak of Day winning every Big Ten game by double-digits as a head coach.

    Conversely, Ohio State failed to pull away in the second half from a team it was favored to beat by 38 points. Tackling issues appeared in the latter two quarters, a couple of trick plays popped for the Scarlet Knights and referees called nine penalties on the Buckeyes. Rutgers won the second half, 24-14, which included 18 fourth-quarter points. Officials whistled Harry Miller for three penalties, Shaun Wade got beat for a touchdown, Marcus Hooker missed a few tackles and Rutgers returned a punt for a touchdown.

    A lot to like, sure. Plenty that went wrong, too.

    But as long as Justin Fields remains healthy and taking snaps for Ohio State, how much should anybody really stress about any perceived deficiencies? Is it really worth the effort when the Buckeyes might have the best quarterback in the country leading potentially college football’s best offense?

    40 or more passing attempts for JF the next two weeks so rest that arm.

    There needs to be a team of at least a dozen individuals showing up where ever Justin is scheduled to be fifteen minutes prior to disinfect, sanitize, clean etc.

    The Covid-19 may be the only thing that can keep Justin from winning the Heisman.

    My bet is he is immune though.

    I agree he is in the hunt, but he isn't going to win it throwing for 300 per game when Jones and Trask are throwing for 400 in the SEC each week. I agree that he's the best of the 3, but if Day calls off the dogs and dumbs down the playbook mid-way through the 3rd quarter every game then he isn't going to win it.
