Kyle McCord: 'I know I can be better' following Week 1 performance
Kyle McCord was Ohio State’s starting quarterback for the season opener against Indiana and that’s unlikely to change in Week 2. Still, McCord knows some of the performance from the Buckeye offense left a bit to be desired.
In the win, McCord was 20-for-33 throwing the ball for 239 yards and an interception. Overall, the Buckeyes stalled out at times with the rushing attack averaging 4.6 yards per carry and Chip Trayanum leading the Buckeyes with 57 yards on the ground.
After the win, McCord acknowledged Ohio State hit its best goal of coming out of the game 1-0. However, he knows some points were left out there and that he personally can be better moving forward.
“Our goal coming in here was to be 1-0, and we are 1-0, but I think another exciting piece is we have so much to build and grow on,” explained McCord. “We won by 20 points, but offensively speaking, we have a lot more we can improve. Definitely feel like we left some points on the field, and I know I can be better.”

There were some good moments and some throws Kyle McCord would like back after his first start this season.

While the overall performance left something to be desired at times, McCord did make some nice throws during the game. He also had one touchdown pass to Marvin Harrison Jr., but that touchdown was wiped away with an illegal touching penalty.
We’ll see how McCord is able to grow and build off of the Week 1 performance moving forward.
