Desmond Howard: Urban Meyer is ‘playing’ fans on starter

The Ohio State quarterback decision will be decided Saturday afternoon, but fans won’t know who is the starter until Monday night before their game against Virginia Tech.

One Michigan Wolverine legend says that head coach Urban Meyer is stretching the decision out to dramatize the game.

Desmond Howard says that Meyer is messing with fans and that the decision has been made for months. He was even quoted as saying that J.T. Barrett will be the starter on Monday.

Urban Myer is playing you guys like a fiddle with this whole "QB battle" stuff. JT Barrett will start (unless he jams his toe).

People have been talking up Barrett at starter for months. He was the starter for most of the 2014 season before an injury in the Michigan game gave Cardale Jones the position for the postseason.

I’m sure fans are just as ready for the decision to come as Howard is. This game is going to be awesome no matter who is starting for the Buckeyes.
