Ohio State Football: 5 Takeaways From The Spring Game

Sometimes — especially in a place like Columbus, OH — we can make too much out of a glorified practice, even it does feel a bit like a game day.

So, with our keen eyes and observations, here are five things that mattered most about what we say in a rescheduled, if not rushed, annual Spring Game in the Horseshoe.

 The QB Saga Continues

When we last saw our gun-slinging heroes, they were all getting first team reps in spring practice with them being a galaxy far far away from separating themselves.

What does seem clear is that there’s a No. 1A and 1B, with Tate Martell being the No. 3 option (albeit close) in the race for the starting job. Joe Burrow had the best day statistically, but Dwayne Haskins seemed to control the offense and have more zip on his passes when he was allowed to fire away. He made the NFL-type throws, whereas Burrow made the safe and sound plays.

I know everyone is looking for a decision to be made here soon, but that decision may very well be that Joe Burrow and Dwayne Haskins are still joined at the hip on this whole QB derby.

Let’s just hope he doesn’t go to the dark side …
