Urban Meyer says it could be time for OSU to pick a QB
Sunday September 20th, 2015

After Ohio State's 20–13 win over Northern Illinois Saturday, head coach Urban Meyer admitted it could be time for the Buckeyes to settle on a quarterback.

After the second straight game in which starter Cardale Jones struggled and was replaced by J.T. Barrett, Meyer fielded more questions about his handling of the quarterback situation and acknowledged he was thinking about firming up and going with just one.

"There might be some truth to that," Meyer told reporters after the game. "Not that I'm going to call some armchair [analysts] and ask them what they think, but I do believe in game reps. That's how players get better, and that's something that I'm going to spend a lot of time thinking about."

Barrett took over after Jones's second interception of the game and played the entire second half. In last week's game against Hawaii, Jones was taken out and re-entered after halftime. Meyer wouldn't give either player any type of edge in the discussion, but said he did not know who would start next week against Western Michigan.
