The question surrounding who will start at quarterback for the Ohio State Buckeyes has been arguably one of the most asked question in all of college sports. Whomever’s lucky enough to win the job will immediately be placed under much scrutiny for a team absolutely loaded at the position.
Most recently, PredictionMachine took a shot at predicting which quarterback would be the most successful statistically and the answer turned out to be J.T. Barrett. In 2014, Barrett was of to an amazing start for the Buckeyes before missing the Big Ten Championship and College Football Playoff due to a fractured ankle.

Here are the full results from PredictionMachine. What these numbers explain is just how difficult of a decision head coach Urban Meyer has to make, but on the flip side he has three extremely capable quarterbacks of leading Ohio State to potential back-to-back National Championships.
Do I think they could do it? Sure, but it most certainly rests on coach Meyer’s decision to select the best quarterback on the roster.
