With reports [Edit: SUGGESTING] that Braxton Miller [MAY] not be in uniform for The Game this season, or possibly any of Ohio State's other games, for that matter, and with backup QB extraordinaire Kenny Guiton having graduated, many mgousers are asking, "who's the backup?" The answer, most likely, is redshirt freshman JT Barrett, a 4-start athlete recruit from Texas coming off a 2012 ACL tear. Here are a few resources on Barrett:
1) Columbus Dispatch blog post from this morning, in which an OSU assistant does a Fred Jackson routine on Barret's skill set and then says, "you don't need a howitzer to succeed in college." Also, Barrett "is the kind of kid who befriends cafeteria workers and special-needs students," which sadly seems to make him unique among his teammates.
2) JT Barret's Rivals profile, which has a bunch of dumb football stuff and a photo of him not even smiling. Come on, JT, you 'spose to be a quarterback!
3) Eleven Warriors article, which has an embedded clip of Barret's junior year high school highlights, a bunch of coach quotes, and a really big color photo.
It is also not outside the realm of possibility that OSU's backup will instead be Cardale "I ain't come to play school" Jones. But all you really need from him is his Twitter handle: @cardalejones
