Urban Meyer says he is not considering a quarterback change
Urban Meyer says he is not thinking about making a quarterback change despite J.T. Barrett’s poor showing on Saturday night against Oklahoma.
Barrett was 19 of 35 for 183 yards and an interception in Ohio State’s 31-16 home loss to Oklahoma. He rushed for 66 yards on 18 carries. The offense didn’t do much, but Meyer isn’t looking to make a change yet.
Asked after the game whether he was thinking about making a change at QB, Meyer said “no,” according to Cleveland.com.
Meyer is confident Barrett will be better in the future.
“We’ve seen him play exceptional, and he will play exceptional next week,” Meyer said.
Barrett also got off to a slow start in the Buckeyes’ opener against Indiana. The team only had 13 points at the half before pouring it on in the second half and finishing with 49 points.
Going back to last year, Barrett has passed for fewer than 200 yards in a game four times in his last five starts. If Barrett doesn’t improve, Meyer may find himself thinking about giving Dwayne Haskins or even Tate Martell a shot.
