Day and his staff appear to be after someone else to provide depth behind Fields, but Kentucky’s backup quarterback likely wouldn’t be able to save Ohio State’s national championship hopes. Nor would Miami (Ohio)’s backup, USC’s backup or Texas Tech’s backup or third-stringer. Ohio State could sniff around Gunnar Hoak, Alex Malzone, Matt Fink, McLane Carter, Colt Garrett and a host of others in the transfer portal who could provide depth, but potential season-savers willing to serve as backups aren’t in the portal in May.

Does nobody seem to understand that just because your starting QB goes out, doesn't necessarily mean he is gone forever.  Sometimes you just need your backup to win a game or two (or less).  2012 Purdue, 2013 Cal, 2014 UM, 2015 Minnesota, 2017 UM are all examples.  All those games would have been lost with a 2011 Nebraska performance.
