Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer said in an article on ESPN,
It is a blessing to have two quarterbacks that you’re very confident in. I don’t know how many times I’ve been like that in my career or how many schools have that luxury. It’s a blessing to have that, and we have to manage it the right way.
He is so confident that he has listed Miller and Guiton as co-starters for the Buckeyes. While Miller has been resting to recover from a left knee sprain, Kenny Guiton has been lighting a fire under Ohio State’s offense, accounting for twelve touchdowns over the past three games, which in fact is a school record. Meyer has said that the official decision as to who will be the starter will be made later this week, but it is a close contest as of now.
This weekend is going to be their most important game of the season so far; the Buckeyes are up against #23 Wisconsin. So the decision that is made better be the right one, although at this point either option isn’t a bad one. It is expected by many that Braxton Miller will be taking he snaps under center when the clock starts ticking, but Guiton might see some playing time of his own during the game.
Although it’s a blessing two have two great quarterbacks, it could also be a curse at the same time. Meyer and his coaching staff will have to think long and hard about who to start, as he could be making either a good or bad choice. If Braxton remains healthy and shows he’s in great condition, then it is likely that he will be the primary quarterback, but if there is yet another setback for last year’s Heisman candidate, Guiton can surely fill the role.
I want to know what you, the readers, think. Do you think Kenny Guiton has proven himself enough to get the start over a healthy Braxton Miller, or will Miller be able to get back under center and continue the Buckeyes’ winning ways? Let me know down in the comments.
