Brian Kelly on ND QBs: I’d Take Our 2 Over OSU


You really can’t get mad at Brian Kelly for this statement —  I mean what else was he suppose to say?

One of college football’s biggest storylines for the spring and upcoming season is the quarterback competition at Ohio State.

I can’t remember a competition being so stacked from top to bottom.

Cardale Jones, the hero of the Buckeyes’ postseason run — was once a third string after thought.

J.T. Barrett — the 2014 starter who basically led the Buckeyes to a Big Ten title and spot in the College Football Playoff before fracturing his ankle in the regular-season finale against Michigan.

The most heralded member oft the group — Braxton Miller, the two-time Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year who was one of the favorites for the 2014 Heisman before reinjuring his shoulder — may not even be the most talented anymore.

According to CSNChicago, Brian Kelly was asked during a Wednesday press conference which unit’s depth on his Notre Dame squad has pleased him the most.

Kelly took that question and sprinted towards a topic that could end up on a bulletin board. With Everett Golson and Malik Zaire in the fold — Kelly said “he’d take his two over the Ohio State” trio any day.

“At the quarterback position, maybe other than Ohio State, I would take our two quarterbacks,” Kelly said. “And I would take our two over Ohio State’s. In terms of depth, I don’t know if anybody has a better situation than we do in terms of the two quarterbacks we have.”

Kelly’s recruiting future Irish quarterbacks everyday as a head coach — what is he suppose to say. Brian Kelly can’t get the top signal callers in America if he concedes that Ohio Stat produces the best.

Golson helped lead the Irish to the 2012 BCS title game, but it’s really not even close if we’re being serious.
