One of the reasons Urban Meyer always tried to bring in one quarterback in every recruiting class is because that position ends up transferring more than any other. To make matters worse, it is difficult to stockpile quarterback recruits by taking two in a class because they all know only one of them is going to play. Sure, there is going to...

Fields should be here for 3 years (at least). He could end up being a 4 yr starter. It may be another JT Barett scenario brewing...strong runner, average/limited passer.

Fields is a true sophomore, so getting three years out of him would be the max.

The problem is really more fundamental than is mentioned. Urby could never seem to decide what kind of QB he wanted. He seemed to end up with two completely different style of QB's, one a r/o guy and one much more a pocket-type passer. I don't think that's ever a good situation. If something happens to the starter you not only need to replace him psychologically but you also have to at least tweak the O for the back-up, and that's a lot to ask.

We got away with it with Cardale but it never worked that well again, even the following season with him. Remember that mess? I don't think we'll have that problem with Day. He knows what he's looking for but the transition from an established HC to a talented prospective HC is never seamless. OSU will be fine but Day really needs a couple years to get his players and his system in. Any college coach does.

When you're handed the keys to a perennial CFP contender there is no 2 year grace period. None is needed, the car is serviced, gassed and ready to go. The next guy will get 2 years if Day backslides.

The only way OSU gets three years from Fields is if he turns out to be a very good college QB with a limited NFL future. If he's only average he'll be replaced, if he has NFL talent he'll be gone in two. The fact is that right now the Buckeyes are one hit away from being average at the position.
