During the Buckeyes national championship celebration on Saturday, Miller told the crowd that the team still has another year to go.
“Guess what, we’ve got another year to do it. So go Bucks,” Miller said to the crowd, according to Columbus Dispatch reporter Tim May.
Miller was designated as the starter for the 2014 season and was a pre-season contender for the Heisman trophy, but he suffered a season-ending shoulder injury and missed the entire year. Freshman J. T. Barrett took over and led the Buckeyes to an 11-1 regular season record, earning a spot in the Heisman Trophy conversation, before being injured in the final week of the season against the Michigan Wolverines.
Sophomore QB Cardale Jones took over in the Big Ten Championship Game against Wisconsin and flawlessly led the team to a 59-0 victory over the Wisconsin Badgers in his first ever college start. Jones played well again in the Sugar Bowl, leading Ohio State to an upset win over the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide to clinch a spot in the National Championship Game against the No. 2 Oregon Ducks. In that game, Jones played yet another great game and led the Buckeyes to a 42-20 win.
With the season over, the attention turns to the Buckeyes’ QB situation and which of the three excellent QBs will take over for the defending National Championship in 2015. It looks like Braxton Miller will be part of that controversy.
