44. Ohio State ranked 44th in the nation in total quarterback rating last year. The offense proved on numerous occasions that they could put some points on the board, but they also looked completely flat at times. If the Buckeyes hope to make it back to the college football playoff this year, they’re going to need some consistency on the offensive front, and it starts with the quarterback. JT Barrett was having a phenomenal year during the 2014 National Championship before breaking his leg against Michigan. He was never able to get into a rhythmn during 2015 while splitting time with Cardale Jones, but with the position all to himself last year he failed to live up to expectations. I’m confident he can return to his 2014 form, and if so I really like the Buckeyes’ chances of winning their second National Championship in four years.
