Braxton Miller 


Saw on ESPN that Braxton Miller reinjured his shoulder again. Don't know the serious of the injury or how long he will be out but could be brutal for the bucks

Hate to see the injury, I hope he is fine but if memory serves me correctly, his backup did a pretty decent job for them last year.

Another former player Parker discussed was linebacker Pat Angerer, now a starter for the Indianapolis Colts. When told that Angerer called Parker a genius, Parker responded:


“Angerer has been hit in the head too much. Examine his helmet.”

Guiton graduated. He may be a grad assistant.

I was so disappointed in the Orange Bowl that Miller was not taken out in favor of Guiton when he originally injured this shoulder. He had off-season surgery, and the shoulder was not fully recovered when today he felt something and iced the shoulder the balance of practice. I think an MRI is set for Tuesday.

Ohio St is looking at a redshirt freshman as the replacement. I don't know anything about him. I think his name is possibly JT Barrett.

Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller reinjured his right, throwing shoulder during practice on Monday, a source confirmed to ESPN.com.

AP Photo/Jay LaPrete Ohio State's Braxton Miller reinjured his right shoulder, according to a Columbus Dispatch report.

Miller, a senior, underwent minor surgery on the shoulder in February and the team had been moving him along slowly in his recovery.

According to the source, Miller suffered a non-contact injury and was taken off the field under medical supervision after previously declaring himself 100 percent healthy earlier in the day.

Miller threw for 2,094 yards and 24 touchdowns, and ran for another 12 scores in leading the Buckeyes to the Discover Orange Bowl last season.

Ranked fifth in the preseason AP poll released Sunday, Ohio State is expected to be in the national title conversation and Miller a Heisman Trophy candidate.

The Buckeyes open their season Aug. 30 at Navy. The injury was initially reported by The Columbus Dispatch.

The fact that it's a non-contact injury is definitely a very bad sign...more indicative of a ligament issue.

Hopefully Buckeye Nation finds out today, how long Miller will be out. For his sake, I hope he just redshirts this year and fully recovers and has an awesome 2015 campaign. J.T. Barrett will more than likely be the starter against Navy. We will have to take some lumps in the OOC games, but hopefully he will be serviceable once BIG season starts. Johnny Football and Jameis Winston were both red shirt freshman and they both won the Heisman..anything can happen(Not saying J.T. is on their level, but strange things happen in college football these days.) Good Luck to the Hawks and good health!!!

That is a shame. Braxton is a real talent. Hopefully he can get healthy soon and be back to full strength.

Re: Braxton Miller 


Normally I would say this is a game changer but whether Miller is in there or not, Ohio State's season was going to come down to their game against Michigan State. Not a very difficult schedule for the Buckeyes. I think MSU is the only preseason ranked team on OSU's schedule. That game is in November so if Miller plays in that game Ohio State has a good chance to win and go to Indianapolis. If not it is a Michigan State blowout.

Re: Braxton Miller 


It is sounding like Miler is done for the season, so this is a huge, huge blow to OSU's hopes.

I hate it, because I want the league to have a team in the playoff, and OSU was the logical choice.
Also hate it because he is a talented performer, who should be able to play.

Now, maybe he comes back for a medical redshirt, and that give OSU another good season next year.

This red-shirt frosh Barnett, who likely will replace Miler , sounds like a similar player to Miller.

He is 6'1'' 220lbs, and is a better runner than thrower.

That sounds like a fit for OSU....but he did tear his ACL two years ago, so they might be leery about running him too much. Cardale Jones is a big pocket passer, so he is an option...but a different type of QB.

MSU, Michigan and maybe Maryland just got a boost in the East.

Game changer.

That should lead the way for a MSU v IOWA B1G Championship

This is a shame. Hate to see anyone injured. I would think this makes MSU the odds on favorite to win the east now.

Re: Braxton Miller 


I have see Braxton play quite a few games and he has taken a terrible beating a number of times. He didn't avoid contact like he should have and lasted longer than I thought he would.

This is the huge drawback to the spread offense where the QB is used as a running weapon.

Dinardo talked about the dilemma on BTN Live yesterday in relation to the Huskers and Tommy Armstrong.

As he said, the o-coordinator has a dilemma deciding whether to protect their qb or play the way the offense was designed....especially when running is the strength of said QB.  A number of Big Ten teams face this issue....not Iowa or MSU.

Re: Braxton Miller 


And to expand on that, just look to the NFL and how "stubborn" teams are about allowing their handsomely paid QBs to take hits and risk injury. 

You can make the spread work without having a dual threat QB who runs all over the field....and can also throw the ball. 

In the NFL it's an offense that's still viewed as having a time and place for it, whereas in college it's the NEXT BIG THING and you're f***in getting left behind if you don't do the spread offense and all that bullsh**.

Teams run the spread to compete better with the more talented, more disciplined teams, like Alabama who are more pro-style oriented. 

You get teams like Oregon who made a name for themselves with the spread and when they get the athletes they need to fit their system it's worked pretty well. But look at the teams they've lost to going back to the 2010 season....most of those teams had some element or were a full-blown pro-style, grind-it-out type offenses. 

For whatever reason, a balanced, well-disciplined, and physical pro-style team tends to give Oregon (everyone's favorite new trendy pick to contend for a championship each year despite having not won one.....fun fact- 2010 was the first, and so far the only, time Oregon had EVER finished a regular season unbeaten. Food for thought.)  trouble.
