Kenny G. is a famous musician who can do magical things with a clarinet.
Kenny Guiton is a more-famous-by-the-week football player who has been able to do some magical things with a football in the last two weeks.
The two share nothing more in common that a first name and the first letter of their surname but Ohio State's Kenny G. has found a way to maintain harmony on a football field in a role many find to anything but harmonious.
But, how long can it last?
Guiton, a 5th year senior and a captain for the Buckeyes is buildiing a reputation not just in Columbus, but all over the country as the best back-up quarterback in the nation.
The back-up became a starter for the first time in his college career and only enhanced the legend of Kenny G.
Guiton was not highly recruited out of high school. He played first in the shadow of Terrelle Pryor at Ohio State. When Pryor left, Guiton moved into highly recruited Braxton Miller's shade.
He seemed destined to have his Ohio State career defined by the term "backup quarterback".
Guiton made the most of his one big moment during the 2012 season when he come off the bench cold and snatched a victory from the arms of defeat by directing the Buckeyes to an overtime win over Purdue.
That appeared to be his enduring moment of Buckeye fame entering his final season.
Guiton and the rest of the college football world knew his role this year would be as understudy to reigning Big Ten Offensive player of the year and 2013 Heisman Trophy candidate Braxton Miller.
Then Miller got hurt.
Guiton is so popular with his teammates that he wa named a captain of the 2013 Buckeyes even though he would spend most of his time on the bench.
Fellow Buckeyes cited Guiton's work ethic, leadership and charisma as reasons to believe in him.
Not many mentioned his talent.
It's time to mention his talent.
When Miller got hurt early in the San Diego State game, Guiton trotted out, finished that drive, finished the game and finished the Aztecs. If it weren't for the jersey numbers, no one would notice the "backup" was in.
He finished with a 152 yards passing and two TD passes. He also ran for another long touchdown.
He entered the media interview room after the game where three dozen media members were waiting and said, "this is crazy!"
It got crazier.
Guiton got word late in the week he would likely get his first start for the Buckeyes in the game at Cal.
Six minutes into his first start, he had three touhdown passes one of which was a school-record 90 yarder which gave the Buckeyes a lead they would never relinquish.
Kenny G. had serenaded the Buckeyes west coast fan base with a 276 yard, 4 touchdown pass performance, leading the Buckeyes to a 52-34 win.
"That's pretty cool", Guiton said afterward.
When does it stop being cool? It's the best story in college football right now.
Go to Kenny Guiton's page on Ohio State's football team webpage and it says: "America's most famous back-up quarterback."
It's cool until the starter comes back.
More specifically, it's cool until the starter comes back and starts to struggle.
Right now everyone is on the same page. Most buy into the Kenny Guiton success story but realize when Braxton Miller comes back, he'll be the starter.
But we all know starters struggle sometimes. Braxton will struggle too.
That's when this is going to get interesting.
When Miller goes three and out against Wisconsin three times in a row.
When Miller throws a pick at Northwestern with the Buckeyes trailing by 6 in the third quarter.
That's when the critics will make their voices heard.
Urban Meyer will get questions in his Monday press conference asking who the starter will be. His answer will and should be easy. Of course Braxton is the starter and he should be.
Callers will phone radio stations this week suggesting a change. But, they know better. They know their are being swayed by the sweet sounds of Kenny G's spirals cutting through the California air.
But when Miller struggles those questions will be tougher to answer for coach Meyer. Those calls suddenly will have the show host needing to come up with a good answer as opposed to the "thanks-for-the-call" brush-off.
Let's hope Miller returns and mounts a Heisman rally loud enough to drown out any controversy. Let's hope this feel-good story stays right where it is.
At Ohio State, it's never that easy.
Time to cue up some soothing Kenny G.
