J.T. Barrett is having a memorable first season, no question about it.

The Buckeyes redshirt freshman signal-caller leads the Big Ten in quarterback rating (170) and touchdown passes (23), and he's added 496 yards and six touchdowns on the ground, to boot.

But, is he better than teammate Braxton Miller, who suffered a season-ending injury during the offeseason? Yes, the same Miller who has won each of the last two Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year awards and Chicago Tribune Silver Footballs.

We ask this because Michigan State linebacker Taiwan Jones turned heads Tuesday, when he said Barrett is a "much better quarterback" than Miller.
