Having a two-quarterback system isn’t always a good thing, but it’s something that the Ohio State Buckeyes can pull off in 2013 if they want to with Braxton Miller and Kenny Guiton.
The Ohio State Buckeyes are off to a strong 4-0 start, and their offense is looking great heading into this Saturday against No. 23 Wisconsin, even with two different quarterbacks playing over the past four games. In fact, both QBs have played so well, Urban Meyer has had both Miller and Guiton as co-starters on the depth chart, according to the SportsCenter Twitter account.
According to Austin Ward of ESPN.com, Meyer had this to say when asked about who would start against Wisconsin:
“Those decisions will be made later in the week,” Meyer said during the Big Ten teleconference on Tuesday. “I think if Miller has a great week of practice, he will start. I don’t want to name him a starter yet, because I don’t know.
“I want to make sure I’m doing right by Kenny Guiton, so it’s more complicated than that.”
In theory, Meyer could play both of the quarterbacks throughout the season. While it isn’t always the most attractive option, it has worked before, and there’s certainly reason to believe it could work with these two talented players under center.
The 2006 Florida Gators had a two-quarterback system with Chris Leak and Tim Tebow. Both players brought a different dimension to the offense, and they were able win the national championship that season,…
