Urban Meyer agonizing over choosing QB for Ohio State

Cardale Jones

Urban Meyer and the Ohio State Buckeyes are currently dealing with what many would call “first world problems.” The defending national champions have three quarterbacks who could easily start on just about every team in the nation. Meyer is not looking forward to having to choose one of them.

On Tuesday, Meyer told reporters that he has not come to a decision but hinted that he will be giving the job to one player, not two.

On the surface, it would seem that Meyer can’t go wrong. Braxton Miller was a clear-cut Heisman Trophy candidate before he injured his shoulder during the preseason last year. J.T. Barrett then took over, and he was putting together a Heisman-worthy season before suffering a leg injury against Michigan. That’s when freshman Cardale Jones came on and led the Buckeyes through the playoffs.

For a while, it looked like Miller was planning to transfer — especially if this porn star got her way. Now, it appears that all three quarterbacks are sticking around. Miller, Barrett and Jones are all capable of winning games. The real issue for Meyer will be trying to keep everyone in the right mindset emotionally.
