You seem to suggest that you wish Urban had played Haskins to get him ready for 2018. I just can't imagine Urban or any coach of a playoff-hopeful team doing that in 2017 after one loss. Haskins obviously could not have duplicated JT's 16 for 16 effort against PSU in 2017, so add another loss there.
As for your suggestion that Haskins didn't want to dis JT so he's lying about not being ready in 2017, chew on this quote by Tate Martell as to what Haskins told him privately in 2018: "It’s an NFL-type of offense, so it’s difficult to learn,” he said. “It takes people a while to get it down. Even Dwayne, I was talking to Dwayne about it, he was like, ‘Well, it took me over a year to feel like I was even comfortable on the field.’ Now, after two years of being in, I know what I’m doing. I’m on point with everything I do. I’m running the offense.” Ozone 12/30/18 quoting Tate Martell quoting Dwayne Haskins about how it took him two years to be ready.
Clearly, this is something DH has been saying privately, not just to "not dis JT".
Did you read Kyle's article? Three weeks in 2017 to be "#1". It took him longer than that to get good IN 2018. Geesh. I guess Bucknuts is not the only site with armchair know-it-all quarterbacks.
