Ohio State’s QB competition is less complicated than you think

Let’s preview the Spring Game, shall we?

NCAA Football: Cotton Bowl-Ohio State vs Southern California Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

As of right now, Ohio State’s Spring Game is still on for Saturday. Incoming weather might change that, but in the event that it doesn’t, there are some intriguing storylines that are going to play out as the Buckeyes take to Ohio Stadium for the first time in 2018.

The main one (obviously): Quarterback.

Urban Meyer recently said that none of Dwayne Haskins, Joe Burrow, or Tate Martell has yet to separate from the pack, adding a different layer of intrigue to a position that had more or less been on lock the last two seasons with J.T. Barrett. Is he telling the truth, though?

On this episode of the Hangout in the Holyland, Colton Denning and Patrick Mayhorn break down why they think Meyer’s playing coy about his QB situation, and what it means for the Spring Game. They also preview the game itself, and everything you need to be on the lookout for, including:

  • Who steps up at the available positions on the offensive line, and how the differences between Barrett and Haskins will affect them.
  • Picking who this year’s Michael Thomas (aka Spring Game Player of the Year) will be.
  • Uncertainty at tight end, and waiting for Jeremy Ruckert to get on campus.
  • What Tuf Borland’s injury means for the middle linebackers, and why this might be Justin Hilliard ’s last chance to make an impact.
  • Roles for Demario McCall, Keandre Jones, Shaun Wade, and more!

The guys also discuss why C.J. Walker’s commitment to the basketball team is a big deal, and the hilarious Herm Edwards saga at Arizona State.
