Re: Picking up the pieces...
Very few people outside Columbus will grasp the full meaning of that. It's a complete philosophical 180 by Tress. He's turning the team over to a Frosh, based solely on performance. It's unprecedented. He's very much like Jo Pa honoring Sr's and giving them playing time (even when it's sometimes to the detriment of the team) because of the larger message it sends about reward for service.
It's the right move, though. Boeckman was never the answer. He was an integral part in the failure against both Illinois and LSU last year, and he lacks the skills necessary to take this team to the promised land. Krenzel was a fluke. It's a new era at OSU, and from now on they will focus as much on QB recruiting as any other area on their team. Good.
