Comment 25 Jan 2015

Gametime, I'll add Elliott's rushing attempts to the article that should be posted tomorrow. I would have posted it this evening, but I spent the day at the NHL All Star Fan Fest with my young son and father in-law. He (we) had a great time at the All Star Fan Fest.

Comment 24 Jan 2015

I don't think so. I believe Jones' arm strength prevented defenses from loading the box and focusing solely on the running game.

With that said, Herman and Meyer are showing a tendency to run the ball a lot at the end of a season. They ran the wheels off of Braxton Miller and Carlos Hyde the last three games of 2013.

RUSHING YARDS BY MILLER AND HYDE LAST THREE GAMES OF 2013

Opponent Miller Hyde Total
That Team 153 226 379
Michigan State 142 118 260
Clemson 35 113 148
Average 110 152.3 262.3

RUSHING YARDS BY CARDALE JONES AND EZEKIEL ELLIOTT LAST THREE GAMES OF 2014

Opponent Jones Elliott Total
Wisconsin 47 220 267
Alabama 43 230 273
Oregon 38 246 284
Averages 42.7 232 274.7

Jones did not have the rushing totals of Miller, but he didn't have to. When Jones ran he was picking up first downs or positive yardage.

Comment 24 Jan 2015

Agree about the importance of Jones' arm strength and how it helps the running game. Below is a comparison of Ohio State's offensive stats with Barrett and Jones as starting quarterbacks in 2014:

Stats With Barrett Category Stats With Jones "Winner"
44.1 Points Scored 47.7 Jones + 3.6
257.4 Rushing Offense 292.7 Jones + 35.3
246.0 Passing Offense 251.7 Jones + 5.7
503.4 Total Offense 544.3 Jones + 40.9
.529 3rd Down Conv. .488 Barrett + .041
.833 Red Zone Scoring 1.000 Jones + .167
       
BARRETT: 1 THE EDGE JONES: 5  

I understand Barrett's stats are over 12 games and Jones' stats are based on a sample of three games, but there is a positive difference in offensive production with Jones behind center.

If you would like I can compare Barrett's last three games (Minnesota, Indiana and That Team) to Jones' three starts.

Or I can compare Barrett's toughest defensive opponents (Penn State, Michigan State and That Team) to Jones' three game run.
