For those of you who don’t know, Haskins is an absolute beast. There was lots of speculation last season that he would be playing in the B1G title game whether or not J. T. Barrett was ready to roll after his impressive outing against Michigan. He let it fly out there, and was a major reason as to why OSU pulled out the win.

I like that OSU is also keeping Tate in the mix. He came to Columbus with massive hype, but hasn’t taken a snap yet. That can sometimes be a recipe for disaster. From what I’ve seen from Haskins, I’d keep Tate’s role minimized as long as the starter is getting the job done.

As for the Big Ten as a whole, we have an embarrassment of riches at the top when it comes to quarterback play. There are future NFL guys everywhere leading their teams. What a great time to be alive.
