    You can't ignore the obvious. Haskins throws a beautiful, accurate ball and his timing looked great

    Yeah say what you want about it being Army's D. The fact is that even when Baugh was wide open, Barret threw it behind him and he had to spin around to catch it. Would be an incompletion or interception if there was a defender there. Barrett's timing and accuracy are still poor. Haskins looked great, but... It was in garbage time, so there was no real pressure on him. Performing under pressure is a whole different thing.

    My take away: Be positive about what Wilson, Haskins and Dobbins will do next year.

    Ohio State would have beaten Army by 30 without JT.............

    JT is limited in his ability to push the ball down the field. Anyone who says otherwise is not being realistic. Does that mean fans do not want him to be successful? Of course not, but against like teams, we will struggle throwing the ball unless JT can show consistent ability to threaten the defense vertically. I respect JT but I have no confidence he will get it done in the big games and that will be how he is judged.

    Just because I liked what I saw from Haskins does not mean I am crazy. I saw three throws JT would not be able to throw with accuracy and zip on the ball. That has to excite fans.

    Enjoy the win. We have a solid back up or two that can be called on before it turns to shit. I think we also have a MLB competition.
    A win is a win and there was improvement.
    Go Bucks

    Watching the Dobbins run just reminds me of the cutting that Thurman Thomas would do...the scary thing is this kid is just a lot faster.

    I won't deny that, he'll I was shocked we even threw the ball. You'd think Urban wouldn't want to stir the pot
