Urban Meyer has yet to lose a Big Ten regular season game. The one Big Ten coordinator to stymie him, Pat Narduzzi, now coaches at Pittsburgh.
But another defensive coordinator has risen with his own take about #QBgeddon:
Opposing Big Ten DC on Ohio St: Meyer's best teams always built around running QB. Barrett better runner than Jones. All signs point to JT.— Adam Rittenberg (@ESPNRittenberg) August 12, 2015
There's no doubting J.T. Barrett is a more dynamic runner than Cardale Jones, and after the Virginia Tech debacle, the offense moved with ruthless efficiency under the redshirt freshman.
Granted, Ohio State's offense wasn't pedestrian under Cardale Jones, but there's no reason to think the offensive wouldn't have kept clicking under the 2014 Big Ten Freshman of the Year, either.
Still, it's food for thought from a man who clearly knows enough about football to get paid hundreds of thousands of dollars a year to coach it.
