BUCKEYES @ MARIOTA - Monday; Jan 12; 8:30pm ET ESPN

Recommended Posts

I don't know...call me old fashioned by snapping the ball with 9 seconds on the play clock? Not taking a knee?

Urban better hope karma isn't real.

The speed is a worthless stat. Mike Vick Rama 4.2. RGIII ran a 4.3. The NFL kills these guys. And if you take the legs away from Mariota, he doesn't have the arm to compensate.

His accuracy blows but his mental make up makes me believe he'll work on it. The arm strength is most definiely there. Since when is mobility a negative. He's 6'3 with a bigger frame than Vick or RGIII. With character and leadership to boot. I think he's worth the risk.

Agree to disagree, I guess. That arm is depressing.

I don't think he's the perfect prospect but I think he'll be the best one in this class.

They all do it in college. I am just old and don't like any of it I guess.

GOAT in college.

 

Can't argue with that.  He just won a national title with a 3rd stringer, in convincing fashion, and won 2 national titles with this guy:

From what I just saw I think Geno has better arm strength than Mariota.  I'm not comparing their abilities to read/adapt to defenses, but I saw only a few Mariota throws tonight where I said "wow".

Winston is obviously more NFL ready than Mariota, but honestly they are both major franchise killing prospects.  If we don't trade down and out of this trap top 10 this franchise will wallow in mediocrity for half a decade

Ohio State was -4 in the turnover differential. And they're going to win by 22.

 

they didnt miss on 4th down conversions

Mariota will still go 1st round if he looks buff at the combine. Hard to ignore his record .

 

I doubt he makes it to 6 anyway so this discussion is pointless.

If we are really having such a problem figuring out if either of these quarterbacks in the draft are going to be franchise type players then we should go with the sure fire in cooper. I have heard countless comments on his size but the man is 6'1 200-some pounds. I honestly don't see the problem in that. He has stick hands and can run his routes nicely. His route running could use polishing but so could any rookie wide out. Kid reminds me of Julio Jones.. comes from the same school. SIGN ME UP.

Yes I agree but I'm worried he won't be there at 6

After this season it's very nice to celebrate a National Championship with the Ohio State Buckeyes!

 

Urban Legend, Coaching did make a difference 

 

Lets hope the Jets choose a winner!

Thanks for the congrats and OSU vs TCU would have been a great game, maybe next year?  

 

I also agree that TCU deserved a shot (great team) but hard to overcome loss to Baylor and "co-champion" line from Big12 - maybe 6 or 8 teams will help but there will always be someone left out...  

 

Still better then BCS that would have had Bama vs Florida State

 

Glad the Buckeye got a chance, they proved they belong and exorcised a few demons...

I'll be okay if Geno is starting next year. Neither top QB prospect is overwhelming, but will understand if they pick either (hoping they don't).

If the Jets do indeed hire Quinn (and hire Shanahan as his OC), Mariotta may actually be a decent fit for the Jets at 6. Shanahan was RGIII's coach his rookie season and made adjustments to the offense that allowed RGIII to have a very good rookie season. Obviously the wheels eventually came apart in Washington, but I'm not sure if that was a result of the coaching or the player.
