I know most fans have their opinion of who the starter should be. I did. Then I didn't, then I did, then I didn't. I just hope everyone supports who the QB is and doesn't start calling for him to be replaced by their guy.

Couldn't agree more. I started out with my "expert" opinion of who should be the starter but I'm back to ground zero. Classic example of a Catch 22. Great time to be a Buckeye unless you're the one who has to tell 2 of these guys they're not the starter.

If it's not going too far back I'd have to agree with John Cooper's L... Big Daddy was the most dominant Buckeye nose tackle I can remember. The #1 overall NFL draft pick and at a position of need.

Don't agree with the WrestleMania analogy. The Spring Game will not be choreographed and Urban places a high premium on winning any competition you're involved in. Plus there will be some very real battles for position in the depth chart. These kids will be giving it all they've got.

By no means an expert but it occurred to me that a pre-snap shift could put Jalin outside where he could run a crossing route against  a CB who's not physical enough to make the tackle and Thomas (or others) from the slot running a deep route against a safety who couldn't keep up. If the defense shifted the CB and safety at the same time Jalin could go deep against the safety. Just a thought.

I agree there is a difference, although we have about 10 receivers that are very good, probably that many DBs and more of each coming in and next year 5 RBs fighting for carries. Same principle. We're stacked at all these positions. Guarantano will probably have only one QB with game experience to contend with and we've all seen there may be more than one QB needed so you're saying he doesn't think he can compete with Collier, Gibson and Burrow?

One of his "secrets" is that his second tier recruits don't jump to pro ball after 1 or 2 seasons and this maintains continuity and comfort with the system. To some his offense seems boring but I like watching them run it. Players are constantly moving, screening and back door cutting. Everyone knows their role and they don't have 25% shooters firing up 3s (Scott, Thompson, Tate).

Plus the fact that good coaches use better strategy. Stop Russell and OSU was pretty much impotent.
