Ohio State coach expects more from his quarterbacks

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Cardale Jones will start. J.T. Barrett will play.

That has not changed at Ohio State after neither quarterback was particularly impressive during one of the more uninspiring 38-point victories a team can have.

Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer was not happy with the performance of his quarterbacks and even less impressed with his offensive line during the team’s 38-0 win against Hawaii last Saturday.

Jones went 12 for 18 for 111 yards against the Rainbow Warriors. Barrett went 8 for 15 for 70 yards. Neither threw a touchdown pass. So fans online and on talk radio already are wondering if the right player is starting.

Meyer said the Buckeyes will stick with the status quo for this week’s game against Northern Illinois.
