Minus the MSU game JT put up all his numbers against awful competition. He struggled bad the last 2 games he played against Indiana and Michigan. We dont win the national title with Barrett as QB last year. I think people really overrated how good JT is because his stats are all inflated due to a pretty awful regular season schedule last year. The offense looked at its best in the Meyer era under Cardale. 

Also, we should be running the read option way less than we have been. We lost 2 QBs because of out overuse of it. I'd be so happy if we reduced the number of QB runs by 80%.

I feel more confident with Cardale at QB given our O-line and Zeke at RB. We don't need a running QB with Zeke, Marshall, Dontre, Braxton, etc. 

Barrett had a ton of stretches last season where he was pretty bad- see large chunks of Penn State, Indiana, and Michigan games. He put up record numbers against a horrid schedule strength wise. On the other hand Cardale put up very decent numbers against 3 top 15 teams under a ton of pressure. I really don't get how this QB battle is so close? Good stats against bad teams vs. decent stats against great teams?

I would say that was more out of necessity since Cardale isn't the thrower that JT is. Urban went ultra conservative on the offense in the playoffs. Plus the oline the last part of the year was elite compare to the first half of the year before the MSU game.

Worth waiting until the Buckeye's clinch a spot in it. Was super easy to get tickets last year (didnt even sell out) and even a few weeks before the MSU game 2 years ago. 

That being said. Really fun to go. Atmosphere at this game is better imo than games at The Shoe.

I could see Urban wanting to bring Notre Dame back to glory after he coaches here for 5-6 more years then takes an ESPN media break for a year or two.
