Burrow let us discuss

Recommended Posts

We should keep this thread going to remind us how we let a 4 star QB who wanted to be a Husker his entire life go to our conference rival and catch splinters for two years before transferring out of conference to win the Heisman and lead his team to the National Championship.
It's our own Michael Jordan high school basketball story.

With Burrow having a fantastic year for LSU, it seems fans wanting to bitch about Frost and how he’s a terrible coach and how this season sucks are using this as another opportunity to point this out.

Glad for him he went where he did.     He would be a back up at NU.

I know a good QB is a significant difference maker for a team’s success. It’s very possible that Burrow could have gotten NU to 7-5, 8-4, or 9-3. However, I think you are mistaken on how badly Martine

"Joe Burrow: I wanted to play at Ohio State my Senior year but they told me I wasn't good enough."
 

I really, REALLY don't get why this isn't getting the same traction as the Nebraska story.

The family history and the part where Ohio State went 13-1 while the Huskers went 5-7.  :dunno

So... family history is a bigger story than literally being in their QB room, on their practice field, working with their coaches.... ????

 

That makes literally zero sense.

Not really.  Again they went 13-1 and had the #3 guy in the Heisman voting.  Having Burrow doesn't make a lot of difference to them.

 

We went 5-7, had questionable QB play and lost four games by a TD or less.  It's not much of a stretch to think Burrow could have made quite a difference in our season.

So coaches who had personal knowledge of his abilities passing on a Heisman winner are less on the hook than coaches who didn't see him in every practice, work with him in the QB room, and know him for years.

 

Ohio State could have won the National Championship with 2019 Joe Burrow.

 

Nebraska maybe could have made a bowl game with 2019 Joe Burrow.

 

Yeah. I really see that point. We super should have known.

 

DARN YOU SCOTT FROST!!!!!1!!!!11!!!eleven!!!

Interesting take. I mean there was more that went into Haskins starting over Burrow, but lets just forget about Burrow injuring his hand and Haskins coming off the bench and winning the Michigan game. 

 

I am just glad that it worked out well for Haskins and Burrow.

I hope this adds to AM’s motivation


I think McCaffery being in the same room

as Adrian should be all the motivation he needs.  And that’s a good thing.

Behind our o-line, Burrow would have been lucky to get drafted on the third day.

Could also be replaced by 'with our recieving corp'
