...regardless of other excuses...and that's all you've done here is make excuses...his inconsistencies as a thrower were an issue. He destroys Penn State in the 4th quarter in 2017. the next week 4 INTs against Iowa. Throws 4TDs against a not elite OU defense in 2016...0 TDs and 1 INT a year later against the same not elite defense. End of 2016 last 3 games...337 yards passing, 1 TD, 3 INTs. first 10 games that same year...2218 yards passing 23 TD, 4 INT. That's inconsistency or just falling off a cliff within the same season.
the passing game was sometimes great sometimes very iffy with him at QB. within the same season. over multiple seasons. that lack of balance and consistency was part of what kept OSU off the mountaintop when he was here. Just as Haskins wears a chunk of the redzone offense issues his one year here...JT wears a chunk of the passing game inconsistency throughout his career. It's ok to say it.
: OSU was great through the JTB years, not just good. Let's start there.
: 3 for 8? Seriously? JTB got kneecapped before the SCum game and tried to go. He pulled himself after first series in the 2nd half. Even with one leg he still had a 25 yards TD pass to Baugh and a rushing TD to account for 2 TD's in roughly a Half of play. This is the best you got to take a shot at a warrior who was 4-0 as a starter against SCum and gave it his best shot when he got cartilage tore from taking a direct hit on his knee minutes before kickoff? Very low even for you.
: In 2016 who was the OC? Ed. Cardale and JTB's Pass Efficiency Ratings dropped similarly between 2014 and 2015 when Herman left. JTB's PE went right back up when Day and Wilson arrived.
: In 2016 how did the WR's compare to 2014? Swap out Devin Thomas as the deep threat for James Clark, and freshman Bin Victor. Swap out Michael Thomas for Noah Brown. Swap the two sets of WR units between 2014 and 2016. Does OSU win the NC in 2014 without Devin and MT? How would Devin and MT have changed the Clemson game?
: In 2016 Prince was a Soph and had the lowest % of successful Pass Blocking for a Tackle in college football. Jordan was a true frosh. That OL was nowhere near the unit in 2014 or even 2015. The top pass rushing teams like Clemson and SCum lived in the backfield.
: The 2015 loss to MSU was a debacle. There were a lot of factors beyond the QB play.
: The 2018 Purdue loss was a debate. There were a lot of factors beyond the QB play.
