Saturday, Ohio State, for the first time this season, will be starting sophomore J.T. Barrett over junior Cardale Jones at quarterback. Most college football analysts are applauding the move, given Jones' struggles this year. Fox Sports' Joel Klatt agrees, and even went one step further when he joined Dan Patrick Friday morning.

Klatt, using a Thanksgiving analogy, implied that Jones was given too much credit for last year's national title. He believes that Barrett did most of the work in leading Ohio State to the promised land.

Klatt's right, but he is discounting the fact that Jones, who had never started a college football game, beat Wisconsin, Alabama and Oregon in his first three games. Regardless, Barrett is set to lead the offense, and it has Ohio State fans excited.
