Pryor Third String QB

There will be some grumbling from Buckeye fans today as they have their first looks at the projected depth chart for the Youngstown State game.  It appears that all-everything superstar rookie quarterback Terrell Pryor is listed as the third stringer behind starter Todd Boeckman and back up Joe Bauserman.

Drop Back vs Pryor

    Before you get too cranky and start calling Jim Tressel nasty names read the depth chart as such; Todd and Joe are both drop back quarterbacks.  Heaven forbid if Todd Boeckman goes down with an injury sometime in the season the logical immediate replacement would be Bauserman since he and Todd both share the same quarterback styles.  Pryor will get plenty of snaps this season as the coaching staff grooms him for the starting roll in 2009 but right now it makes sense to keep the status quo and insert a similar quarterback to run the same system.  Changing an entire offensive scheme during the season to accommodate for Pryor’s obvious talent would through off the rhythm of the offense. An occasional change of scheme would be a healthy way to keep opponents on their toes but you really don’t want to change an entire philosophy during the regular season.

In Tressel We Trust

    So don’t get too bent out of shape when you read the depth chart and head over to the water cooler to gripe to your office buddies.  Tressel’s got a plan and he has earned our trust to make the right call.
