Ohio State wanted Pryor more to keep him away from Michigan then for themselves. Ohio State should have stuck with their system and gotten a top notch pro-style quaterback. I actually think that he's still young and very talented and will probably develop, but if not the the Buckeyes got what they deserved.
I think it was a case of simply going out and getting the best athlete they could for the position, and they certainly got that. However, what good is his body if his mind is incapable of making his body do what it should nor needs to? He simply continues to make poor decisions and has a horrible arm. When he throws the ball, it is either up for grabs or intercepted, or the reciever has to stop running and come back for the ball. It is like trying to teach you or I to throw the ball. Sure, we may improve somewhat, but without the talent there is little improvment to be had, especially if you are mentally challenged, which I think he is judging from his interviews.
Don't get me wrong, I don't lay the whole blame on TP's shoulders. After all, the offensive line has been abysmal since Tressel took over the team. I think this is a direct reflection of the offensive line coach as well as Tressel. TP simply have very little time to throw the ball, but when he does have time the throws are simply not that impressive and sometimes laughable.
