And why is this post allowed to remain on this board?? First off you're talking about a FRIGGIN KID A JUVENILE. Secondly NO ONE ASSOCIATED WITH OHIO FOOTBALL WOULD WANT ANYONE OTHER THAN TYLER TETT FOR THE LAST 3 YEARS TO BE THE OHIO QB. SO YOUR OPINION SMELLS THE OPPOSITE OF ROSES. YES OHIO WANTS BURROW AS DO A TON OF OTHER PROGRAMS.


Juveniles are beyond reproach? Coaches have to evaluate juveniles every day to determine who will succeed at the next level. It's not an easy job. They hit with some kids, miss with many others. But it's not "everybody gets a trophy" when it comes to recruiting. I'm merely making an observation from what I've seen on the field/court...not assaulting his character as a person or student.

Give an example of this horrid leadership style? All you offer is BS criticism void of any examples. Takes a real person to do that about a kid while hiding behind a screen name.

I kinda hope Young Mr. Burrow commits to someone else tomorrow, so we can stop having stupid arguments like this one.

Then again, stupid arguments are why we have the Internet. Hmmm....Imma have to think on this one some more.

I have been curious about one thing. I don't see any indication of interest from Vanderbilt. I suspect that the Vandy QB coach is aware of his skill levels. Is it a hands-off situation to keep the relationships between the coaching staffs cordial?

I doubt that matters at all..if Vandy needs a QB you better bet his job is to offer the best kids they have a chance at getting.

Vandy would be a good fit for him.  He's not being courted by the Bama's, Auburn's, Georgia's - so a Vandy where he can play, and have a chip on his shoulder works nicely.  Same as an NC State (that has offered).  Vandy (and an NC State) also play a style that he fits - not a heavy read option style.

That's too bad considering he runs pretty much all read option and zone running game currently

Consider the competition.  Read option on the Plains is one thing, on Saturday a different story. 

Given his size and speed, he will be looked to be more a drop back, keep plays going with his legs guy, as opposed to be a a read option guy - at the level we are discussing.

What offense will Vanderbilt run next year? Have the new coaches said anything?

Funny at least 8 of the schools who have offered him run the read option, and several are in BCS Conferences.

No, not funny at all.  I'm sure some of the schools run the read and some even rely on it.  He also has offers from schools such as BC, WVA and East Carolina which runs more wide open  (OC came from Texas Tech).  I would guess the schools all see a young man who is a good athlete and solid young man that can help them win games. 

My point, and I stick to it, is he is better suited for a system that doesn't rely on the read.  He is not big enough (190) to take the constant hits, nor quick enough to avoid them. And pointing to what he does on Friday nights against Jackson (where he is the best athlete on the field), doesn't change that.  Good arm, good legs....dual threat yes, true read option no.  (IN NO WAY am I comparing him to these players - for ILLUSTRATION purposes only - think Rogers' s style versus RG 3's)

As you are aware, I contend that he is a low to mid-level BCS recruit.  And the offers reflect that - and that's okay.  In fact, that is great!  He may get a home state offer from OSU, but for the most part, the high-end BCS teams (GA, FSU, Bama, Mich. etc.) have their QBs slotted for the class of 2015.  He will continue to get "interest" from them, but that is for THEIR insurance - in case early next season (before LOI are signed), a recruit blows out a knee, gets arrested, or decides he wants to play near granddad, the school can call him up and say, "you know that slot that may open up..."

NC State, BC, Iowa St., WVA, TN - that is a hell of a list and more will  be added to it over the next 120 days.  He should be proud, as should fans and residence of Athens.  My only advice to him is "don't be an insurance policy.  Go somewhere that wants you, not a replacement."  The recruiters are defining his playing field.  And it is a hell of a field.

My new neighbor three doors over is getting "interest" as an o-lineman from UNC, State, etc. - but his level of offers are coming from App St., East Carolina, perhaps a Wake or VA.  That's GOOD!.  His dad and I were talking the other day.  He'll be doing the camps this summer  and can still hold out for that "wish school" (UNC for him), but he needs to start taking a look at the schools (academically), and systems (he is not quick enough to block in read option) and think about what makes since for him.  That is not a slight to the young man - just the way it is.  The same is true for Joey.

I'm sorry I don't genuflect every time you mention Joey's name, nor gush "BC! - look out.  Every ACC school will follow" - it is not a slight so you don't need to defend him.  He's a good kid.  I wish him the best.  Personally, it sounds like a WVA or NC State is a good fit for him - uptempo air games - can use legs to extend plays.  That's my bet.  He can best compete against the other QBs in that type of system.

I'm sure his family thanks you for your insight, I'd imagine they have been curious to how this all works.

Arkley tweets that Burrow hopes to make a choice before the start of his senior season.  Meanwhile, he adds offer from Kentucky...
