The Conductor
The Conductor

Greatest Passer In Ohio State History

J.T. Barrett is the Ohio State all time passing leader with 9,109 career passing yards, second place is Art Schlichter with only 7,547 yards. He is also the Ohio State career passing touchdowns leader with 102, beating out number two Terrelle Pryor and Bobby Hoying who are tied with only 57!! J.T. is also the buckeyes holder for the single season passing touchdowns record, he is also second as well. He passed for 34 touchdowns in 2017 and 33 in 2014. He also has tied for the Buckeye single game passing touchdowns record twice, passing for six touchdowns in two games. J.T. is also the buckeye record holder for career total offensive yards responsible for with 12,246 yards, beating out number two Braxton Miller with only 8,950! He is also, of course, the career leader for touchdowns responsible for with 142, beating out number two Braxton Miller with 88! Keep in mind he only passed for 992 yards his Sophomore year when he played in 11 games (I'm sorry but I don't know if he started or was just a backup I'm guessing he was a backup though) he still is the buckeyes leading passer in yards and touchdowns. J.T. has a career passer rating of 153.4, which is 50th in NCAA history and 1st in Ohio State history. He has also thrown only 28 interceptions in the span of four years of college football.

The Rusher

The Greatest Rushing Quarterback in Ohio State History

With 3,137 rushing yards J.T. is ninth all time for career rushing yards in Ohio State football history and second all time for quarterbacks behind Braxton Miller with 3,314. J.T. is fifth all time in Ohio State rushing touchdowns with 40 and first in quarterbacks. I agree you could make an argument for Braxton Miller being the greatest rushing quarterback in Buckeye history but it's the touchdowns that makes me believe it's J.T. Barrett, Braxton had 33 rushing touchdowns. J.T. Barrett's career high in rushing yards in a game is 189 yards which is an Ohio State football record for a quarterback. (Once more if this is wrong I apologize I could not find every quarterback in Ohio State history or any direct answers online to the answer) J.T. Barrett also holds the record for Ohio State single game yards responsible for with 423, against Penn State in 2017. J.T. also holds the Ohio State single season record for touchdowns responsible for with 45, he also is number two with 42, and number four with 33. Number three is Braxton Miller with 36. J.T. also has set the Ohio State single game touchdowns responsible for twice with 7 touchdowns responsible for on two separate occasions.

J.T. Barrett Winning

J.T. Barrett's career record is 43-6, witch is the most wins in Ohio State history by a quarterback (Once more do not quote me on this I could not find a straight answer and I could not go through every qb in Ohio state history) He is also the only quarterback in Ohio State history to go 4-0 against Michigan. J.T. Barrett may never have had an undefeated season but he is still 43-6 as the Buckeyes starting quarterback. he is also the only quarterback to ever be named captain for three years in Ohio State football history.

The Comeback

J.T. Barrett led the Buckeyes to the comeback of the decade against Penn State, he had an unbelievable quarterback rating of 189.1 against the number two ranked team in the country. J.T. Barrett went 13-13 passing in the final quarter of the game, he threw three touchdowns, 0 interceptions, and passed for 170 yards. While he passed 33-39, with 4 touchdowns, and 328 yards for the whole game and rushed for 95 yards and 17 carries when he led the game in both rushing and passing yards. When the Buckeyes were down by 19 in the fourth quarter J.T. Barrett, or as I call him The Conductor, rallied the Buckeyes and inspired them all the way to the end. J.T. Barrett was the only Buckeye who never truly gave up throughout the entire game, he never wavered and he trying. If you watch the game closely all of the other Buckeyes gave up early in the second half, but you could see there was J.T. Barrett who kept playing out through the entire game. i know you all must be thinking that kind of stuff doesn't matter but when it comes down to it J.T. was the only reason the rest of the team tried, and that truly matters.
