This IS NOT "Wilson's" offense. Urban Meyer is still the head coach. Urban Meyer's Spread Read Option Down Hill Run First In The A-gaps Offense, with a few tweaks by Wilson,
YEP, the coaches know WAY more than 100% of the comparable neophytes posting on this subject.
IF you were knowledgeable you would know that the basis of Urban's offense IS the single wing
He already holds almost all Ohio State "throwing" records"
He's also 5-10
Comparing a rotation in basketball to QBs that split time in football is a POOR analogy.
Bad jokes are usually missed
There is ABSOLUTELY no QB "situation".
ALL top programs have multiple talented QBs. Using you postulate, no team would have more than one good QB.
"Multiple starters" like Braxton and Kenny Guiton? YES. "Multiple starters" like Stanley Jackson and Joe Germaine? NO
TRUE "multiple starters" at QB, is a death knell for an offense and a team.
What Wilson means when he says, "We'll have a bunch of guys ready, we need them". IS due to the high probability of an injury, "Multiple" guys will play, when Ohio state is up by 30. To ready the #2 for a possible injury to the #1. ALSO Ohio State WILL need a new starter next year, The more playing time the #2 can get this year will put him ahead of the learning curve for next year.
BTW, Wilson said NOTHING about "multiple starters".
BTW, Urban DID NOT use "multiple starters" at Florida. When a Freshman Tebow was used for specific plays ONLY. He NEVER started a game.
BTW, Urban DOES NOT want to do what a low lever Big Ten team like Indian did.
You're saying we've been untruthful??
Maturity is a consideration
bad Idea to have a 5 player recruiting class.
Today, there's "new" Upper Arlington and "old" Upper Arlington.
You are aware that professional wrestlers, must belong to the Actors Union?
They may end up Top 3, but this is not the normal for Bama at this point in the recruiting cycle.
You forget how quickly Matta won a Big Ten Title and made it to a Final Four. That doesn't happen by counting on wins against the little sister's of the poor for 20 win seasons. AGAIN, if the new coach can't replicate what Matta did, sooner than later, he won't be around long. Seeing how arguable the best coach in Ohio State history was just fired.
For the youngsters, it's what have you done for me lately, in RECRUITING. THAT is what Top 10 programs in ANY sport are about.
Whoever the next coach is, his longevity will depend on if his first recruiting class will be comparable to Matta's first class; Oden, Conley Cook, Lighty and Hunter. If not, a search for a new coach will begin sooner than later. As that class was the primary reason for top players coming to Ohio State over the next decade. You build it and they will come, but you gotta build it quickly.
I hope Thad will stay in Columbus and grow his legacy as Early Bruce and Cooper did after they were let go.
Vvery few coaches and ZERO administrators would be in favor of adding 3 weeks to the season.
Tired of going to classes
Fair. It would not be fair to both Burrow and Haskins, not to know who is the REAL #2 QB this year and thus have the inside track to the starters job next year. Not knowing for sure before the season starts would be UNfair to both. In making decisions about their future.
Surely you jest! This WILL NOT be the Kenvin Wilson gunslinger show offense. Urban Meyer is still the head football coach, This will still be Urban Meyer's Spread Read Option Offense, with some tweaks by Kevin Wilson. What you saw in the spring game is NOTHING CLOSE to what you will see in the real world of Big Ten football
Burrow ran more in high school than Haskins. Burrow looks to be the better of the 2 at the read option. We all do remember this is not a Pro Offense, right??. It is THE Urban Meyer Read Option Offense. The QB's might chuck it up for 7 TD's and 700 yards passing in a spring game, but when it comes to big boy football the QB's will be handing it off and running the ball themselves more than they'll be throwing the ball.
Spring games are a fantasy world.
If Jones doesn't like the looks of the competition then Urban better get real busy recruiting another QB for the 2018 class. But using your logic NO QB worth his salt would want to come to Ohio State.....would he??
The 11warriors poll favors Burrows over Haskins 70% to 30%. Looks like Burrows will be the starter for the next 2 years. Then Haskins for 1 year, Martel for 1 year, unless either transfers and Jones 1 year unless he asks to be switched to WR to get on the field, like Gibson did.
The issues that come with the most talented pool of QBs in Ohio State history
Ohio State needs a BIG back for their offense to work as designed. They don't have one and there are none on the horizon.
