Coach Meyer has answered the second question, stating numerous times that though the two quarterbacks are competitively close in practice, Cardale Jones continues to grade out slightly better. JT hasn't won the starting job, yet.

The system we saw Saturday gives both quarterbacks playing time, rewards each for their hard work and their team contributions to date, and gives the team better opportunities to succeed.

Pleased that the Buckeyes are winning, undefeated, and #1 in the polls. Just wondering:

  1. As #1, the Buckeyes are getting every team's best shot. Why aren't the opponents getting Ohio State's best shot?
  2.  During the playoff stretch, if Cardale Jones couldn't find an open receiver, he would often run with purpose to get the first down. It appears that he's waiting longer before he takes off running. Is he being coached to extend the play this year?
  3.  Are the coaches trying to reward too many talented and hardworking players with playing time to the detriment of developing an identity on offense?
  4.  We heard so much about the wealth of talent, that the expectation of many was that the competition wouldn't be able to keep up with all the offensive looks. Ohio State would be overwhelming other defenses with quick strikes, or long, time-killing scoring drives depending what the situation merited, or what the Buckeyes' coaches wanted to work on. Did anyone else think that in September we would see the Buckeyes scoring early and often, and that the 4th quarter of each game, they could rest their starters and showcase their depth chart without missing a beat?

These Buckeyes are not complacent. They are hardworking, driven competitors. The adversity they've faced so far this season, from the injuries, to the competition, to the media and social media analysis of their performances, will keep them focused and united.

...and the people who DVR the game, but forget to extend the recording beyond the standard 3-hour game block.

Weren't they attempting to avoid a post season Bowl game ban? Vacating the 2010 season, returning/donating their share of the Sugar Bowl proceeds, 5-game suspensions for the players involved, were all self-imposed concessions to avoid steeper NCAA penalties. Then Pryor opted to be part of the NFL Supplemental Draft, in part to avoid the NCAA penalties, and a 5-year university ban was imposed upon him. I could be wrong.

"I missed Braxton Miller.",....said every member of the Hokie defense after that touchdown run....

I'm a Buckeye fan, but a University of Akron alumnus.

I read Eleven Warriors for the articles, especially the ones written by Ramzy.

I never played football on a Pop Warner or school team, and I don't understand most of the analysis articles by Ross.

When I wear my "85 Yards through the Heart of the South" t-shirt, Ezekiel Elliott has to run up a large hill through the line before splitting the 8 and the 5.

Since registering an account with 11W, my favorite college player has been Mike Doss. Seriously considering changing it to:

Cardale Jones!

Cardale Jones!

State of Ohio!

Car! Dale! Jones!

Oregon 56 is going, "Don't worry. I'll stop him!... OOF! I go backward. Where'd he go?...I fall down."

Thank you, Andydye84. I was scratching my head about that sentence, recalling that Ohio State was undefeated in 2012, and didn't play in the post season.
