I wager another will emerge and almost as good as burrow was.
I'd take that wager,Burrow was always very accurate LSU caught lightning in the bottle.He was the center of debate back in 2016 on Buckeye Boards (before he broke his thumb).The LSU coaches obviously let him be himself but it's a tall order finding someone to replace a once in a generation player.LSU always has talent just hard luck under center though - I'm happy for him.One of the reporters said "now it's on to Cincinnati"

I like and can appreciate the talent of borrow. However, much of his success was coaching.


Its not common coaches allow their QBs to sling like that even of they can... The coaches generally mitigate risk.  A player cocky enough are a dime a dozen if left to their own devices but a coach isn't.

I wager another will emerge and almost as good as burrow was. But man, that kid was magnificent, and those receivers played just as hungry... The entire team played hard and above their station on paper. That, y'all, is coaching as much as talent.

Joe Brady has to be bucking for a promotion methinks.  Burrow was basically an afterthought at OSU and Brady made him the best QB in all of CFB at LSU.

LSU is going to have to make him co-OC or something like that soon, otherwise he'll grab another prime gig (maybe even in the NFL).

Burrow was way more than an afterthought at Ohio State. Not sure where this narrative comes from?

he went into the close battle with Haskins to be #2, and was winning that battle until he broke his hand. That gave the role to Haskins, who promptly came into the road game AT Michigan and brought OSU a come from behind win on
the biggest stage.  For 2018- both were given an equal shot in the spring, and by all accounts it was a real battle with no clear winner. 

Meyer didn’t conclude a starter for fall- and Burrow- smartly- did not want to risk it so he shopped himself in the portal.  OSU did NOT want him to leave- but once he made his mind up- they made sure to not stand in his way. 

meanwhile- Haskins Threw 50 td passes in his rookie, and only season as a starter.    50. 

Burrow got a full year of starting in 18, and had an OK season, while Haskins was doing that/ breaking nearly every big ten and OSU passing record. 

Then 2019 happened and that’s in the history books now.

I will add that Haskins success can be traced directly to Ryan Day- and he followed that up with Fields this year, who himself was responsible for 50 touchdowns (40+ throwing I believe).  

It might have been pretty good if Burrow got to work with Day for 2 full seasons.

While I believe that Ohio State should probably beat Clemson 6-7 times out of 10 this year, they'd probably win about 3 against LSU.  That nut was just too tough to crack.  Even a fully-loaded Bama couldn't do it.
This is about how I feel.  I'm still dissappointed about the Clemson loss because it still just feels like one of those games where my team was better but just came up a little short that night.  That said, I agree, LSU would probably win against Ohio State anyway.

It seems now that Bama and LSU have reluctantly and successfully gone to the big offense, enough defense trend...who still hasn't?  Stanford?  Michigan?  MSU?  Georgia?
.
Anywho.  If Bama doesn't win the West next year, I see them going back to their previous style of bullying you with talent and depth and defense.  Can a program do that?  Go back?  
With Tua gone, they may try to.  It'll be interesting to me.

Michigan tried to morph their offense this past year with mixed results.  Georgia stands out as a team that has been somewhat limited, we'll see how they look with a more mobile quarterback.  MSU really needs to up their game.

There were 86 pass attempts in last nights championship game.   Probably 90+ if you include scrambles.   Zero holding calls.  Zero interceptions.   I'd hate to be a DC in CF right now.  They must feel as if they're calling defense in a 7v7 league.
