Former Buckeye Coach Takes Lawrence Over Fields

Of all of the analyst out there, the one most Clemson fans would least expect to choose a Tiger over a Buckeye would be Urban Meyer. Especially when you take into account that he still has ties to Ohio State where Justin Fields is the quarterback.

Meyer did exactly that though, choosing Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence over Justin Fields while ranking his top quarterbacks for 2020. His reasoning could be described as flimsy, but hey, he still takes Lawrence.

“I had Fields and Trevor right next to each other. I picked Trevor Lawrence for one reason — he played one more year. That was it.”

Lawrence took last years head to head matchup when the Tigers took down Ohio State in the semifinals of the College Football Playoff. Many expect the two quarterbacks and their teams to meet again. This time for a national championship.

The 2020 Heisman race also could come down to these two great quarterbacks, not to mention both are battling to be picked first overall in the 2021 NFL Draft.

While the analyst keep spouting off, Tiger fans are sitting back smiling. They know. They know who the better of the two is.

Now they’re just ready to see Lawrence play this season and hopeful he can lead the team on another playoff run. Not to mention putting himself in the record books as one of college football’s greats.
