It turns out Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer wasn't really debating who to start at quarterback this week after all. Saturday, Meyer told ESPN's Olivia Harlan that he actually made the decision to start Cardale Jones against Western Michigan right after last week's game against Northern Illinois ended. He took the next few days to "make sure" he was making the right choice.

J.T. Barrett replaced Jones during the second quarter of last week's game. We'll see if Jones can stick around a bit longer today.
