I noticed his change in running style as well...personal opinion, he doesnt want to chance getting dinged and losing the starting spot ( he misses even a short amount of time and gives JT a window to shine it would be back to the bench)...where in the 3 games to end last season he ran like he did not give a F....he was coming thru you, over you..whatever it took to get the extra yards...

Could cause more issues imo....say JT goes in and looks flat out great in the red zone and scores TD after TD after TD....you think fans are calling for a switch now...If he is having great success in the red zone why not just let him be the QB then...personally I would think efficiency in the red zone would be something to really look for in your "starting" QB.

I think Meyer has hope that the "light" goes on and everything starts clicking...then his choice is obviously justified, but will be second guessed until it does...also not easy to say " Hey I was wrong, this other guy is better"..... Maryland is an awful team, good chance to get things rolling. If you can't put up numbers vs Maryland at home....then id start to worry

Comment 05 Oct 2015

Those are good stats....but when you look at the game and it shoud have been 300+yds and 3TDs....thats why you wonder...it is no secret the Hoosiers have an awful defense....at some point, a "good" game isnt going to cut it...we're eventually going to need great play out of the QB position...Both Jones and JT can play better....its obvious for some reason or another JT has taken a step back...you dont go from being one of the best QBs in the nation to a very good back up in such short time...

Perhaps, but Baugh has failed to live up to expectations thus far and im not quite sure Berry or Alexander are 100% on being TEs...they may settle into other positons...and behind them there isnt very much...odds are 1 of Hausmann or Farrell will need to provide immediate depth and wouldnt be overly surprised to see 1 play significant minutes as a true freshman.  Truthfully, I dont know alot about Dotson other than he's a borderline top 10 TE by most services and an Ohio kid...OSU offered him so he is obviously talented and is the odds on favorite to be a TE in the 17 class right now.

This is a question I would have as well....If Meyer is truly going to this " pro-style" type offense,  does QB recruiting change going forward? and just as you mentioned, if JT doesnt fit the "pro-style" mold as it is suggest'd...then what becomes of him when CJ leaves.

Comment 24 Sep 2015

So JT was the better talent clearly last season, and CJ is this year....makes sense... I for one think they are both very talented and one any given day one could out perform the other....thats why this is a unique situation and has caused the issues it has...

Comment 24 Sep 2015

Would you say Jones is playing better then JT in games thus far? Then it comes down to practice, and id imagine its close there too...its hard to fathom the kid that accounted for 45 TDs and was arguably one of the best QBs in the nation last year has all the sudden forgotten how to play football...Both appear to be playing below what is expected of them and what fans have actually witnessed themselves...id be curious to know how 2 very talented QBs go from" Great" to borderline average ( or below)...Both of these QBs should be putting up big numbers in this offense...Unfortunatley this will likey linger the entire season....anytime Jones has a off day, people will want to see JT.If JT doesnt come in and score right away, then its back to Jones... Fact is both of these QBs helped OSU win a National Title, both are great Buckeyes and its a shame both cant shine this season....

Comment 24 Sep 2015

To a degree I agree with this....but what if Jones goes 2-11 in the 1st half with a couple more INTs and appears shakey....I get the let them work thru mistakes part, but at some point you realize dude is just having an off day...those happen, and then it becomes hard to ignore the fact that you have ( what was at least last season an elite QB) sitting on the bench. I think most of us want Jones to succeed and put up the numbers we know the offense is capable of...but at some point it has to happen, want will only get you so far...

Comment 22 Sep 2015

The offense hasnt looked great the last 2 weeks and this is with Jones getting the most #1 reps in practice ( per Urban)...So while neither QB has played great, I think JT has a disadvantage when his number is called...Personally id like to see JT take the vast majority of practice reps with the 1s this week and get the start this weekend. See what he can do getting those reps with the 1s.

Feels like the writing is on the wall for this one and has been for some time....curious if the staff 1. continues to recruit him aggressively and 2. IF he goes, what position/players get a look.

Comment 08 Sep 2015

Hopefully both get a chance to play vs Hawaii in the 1st half with the 1st team....I think JT puts up big numbers last night vs VaTech ( but thats just speculation )...both can win and both will look good in this offense. Jones played ok last night, the offense looked great for 3 quarters. Now they will have a full compliment of weapons available...no reason any of these next few games are close. Give each QB a quarter, split the 3rd and let Collier mop up in the 4th....

Comment 08 Sep 2015

I think JT is a deceptive runner...no he isnt a burner, but he has decent speed but seems to have very good vision, and when he makes his read he goes with it...no hesitation.

Comment 08 Sep 2015

Jones is very talented, not taking that away from him...I do however think his performance last night was fairly average. Great players dont always play great...IMO the offense runs better thru JT and I think at some point in the season that will be seen. It would be nice to see both get equal "meaningful" reps in the Hawaii game...split the 1st and 2nd quarters, split the 3rd...then let Collier take the 4th...
