Cardale Jones will start at quarterback for Ohio State in the team’s game against Western Michigan on Saturday.
“The whole offense is in a funk,” Meyer said Wednesday.
Jones had originally beaten Barrett for the starting job during fall camp and started each of the first three games of the season. Meyer told reporters Monday that he had yet to decide on a starter for this week.
Jones and Barrett were left to battle for the starting job after former starter Braxton Miller moved to wide receiver. After Miller injured his shoulder before the 2014 season, Barrett filled in as the starter. Barrett injured his shoulder in the 12th game of the season and was replaced by Jones, who won the Big Ten championship game and two playoff games to lead the Buckeyes to a national title.
