Being an elite college quarterback is a full-time job. The amazing part is that those 50 weeks per year are spent on preparing for just 13 or 14 Saturdays per year, and the irony is that those 36 or 37 weeks can only prepare a quarterback so much for the games that he will be playing.

With the O-line in total confusion and our supposed QB starter going 4-13? Yeah! I'm worried!

Fields can't be a 1-and-done because he's only a true sophomore. And I promise you that if he doesn't play well in practice, he will not be Ohio State's starting QB.

He's already ahead via practice. I'd say if he doesn't play well in games he may not remain the starter. There's basically 2 days of practice during the season, so the only way to lose your spot is game performance.
