Ohio State started the season with Junior quarterback and Heisman hopeful Braxton Miller as the unquestionable starter. Miller had an impressive first game but unfortunately went down in week two.

Miller’s injury gave 5th year Senior Kenny Guiton a chance to lead the talented Buckeye’s offense. Guiton didn’t disappoint, he completed 70% of his passes while throwing two touchdowns and rushing for one.

“I was scared when Braxton went down, I loved the way Kenny played though and I don’t think there is any doubt that he is a suitable QB if he gets called on,” said Elder Senior Matthew Tucker .

Guiton also got the start the next two weeks vs. California and Florida A&M while Miller sat. Guiton threw four touchdowns against Cal and six vs. Florida A&M. Even more impressively, Guiton threw those six touchdowns in the first half; he came out after halftime due to the blow out.

Guiton did everything he possibly could to see more playing time leading up to the Wisconsin game, where Braxton Miller was set to make his return. Unfortunately for Guiton, Miller took all the snaps against the Badgers. It’s hard to dispute Head Coach Urban Meyer’s decision to start Miller, who is a freak of an athlete. But it does beg some fans to ask the question if possibly Meyer could play both QB’s at the same time.

“I don’t know if [playing both together] is reality… I keep thinking of a way because I love both those players; I think they’re good players. But I don’t know. If Kenny was a better wide receiver than one of our receivers, he’d be playing wide receiver. If Braxton was a better running back or something — but they’re not,” said Meyer.

Meyer knows a little something about running an offense where two athletes are capable of throwing the ball. Just ask former Florida Gators Chris Leak and Heisman winner Tim Tebow who won a national championship while sharing the load under Meyer.

While it looks like Urban has no plans to play them both at the same time after the win vs. Wisconsin it still could be a dynamic change of pace and would cause nightmares for defensive coordinators around the country.

“Scary, downright scary,” said Elder Senior and avid Michigan fan Joe Middendorf.

It’s no secret that this offense has the potential to be great. They’ve proved to be able to throttle defenses with both players at the quarterback position. It’s an exciting time to be a Buckeye fan, the sky is the limit for this team. Time will only tell what Urban Meyer plans to do with the offense but I think it’s safe to say that it will be exciting.
