Re: Buckeyes Roll Out New Offense Centered On Pryor...
No, not you...CA. He is the self-professed expert on all things Buckeye football, except he doesn't actually seem to know ANYTHING about the current team.
Back to Pryor. True Frosh. Didn't join the team until June. Played with the second team until September. Ran Boeckman's offense. Considering all that, he still managed to come in and be productive, and he literally showed flashes of single-handedly taking games over.
The knocks I've heard against him here are largely irrelevant when considered in context. Was he run-first? You betcha...he may be next year, too. Maybe not, though. The kid CAN pass. He was asked to do very little last year. Look for the primary receiver, and if he's not open, take off. Weird delivery and poor mechanics? Perhaps...but so what? Favre had both, and he turned out okay.
With a year under his belt, a new offense geared towards his strengths, and some proper tutelage, Pryor will most definitely show why he was the #1 recruit last year.
