Urban Meyer compares OSU QB job to playing SS for Yankees


Ohio State has seen a lot of turnover at quarterback so far this season, with Cardale Jones beginning the season as the starter, to him remaining the starter while J.T. Barrett handles red zone situations to Barrett assuming all quarterback duties.

Now, we are back to Jones once again in the starting role for this weekend’s game against Minnesota since Barrett is on suspension after a OVI arrest.

Head coach Urban Meyer recently spoke to reporters, including Bleacher Report’s Ben Axelrod, to discuss how Jones was handling being back in the saddle for just one game and went so far as to compare being the Buckeyes’ quarterback to being shortstop of the New York Yankees.

That’s quite a lofty comparison, basically putting the Ohio State quarterback’s job in the same league as that of future Hall of Famer Derek Jeter, but it oddly makes sense.

It can be argued that Ohio State’s football team, with all of its history, is the New York Yankees of the Midwest and playing for them means a young man can instantly become a household name.

In that case, we’ll see how well Jones handles his spot start on Saturday.

Kickoff in Columbus is slated for 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
