Ohio State QB Braxton Miller is the glue that keeps an otherwise underwhelming Ohio State offense a contender for the 2014 Big Ten Title.
The Ohio State Buckeyes could be without 2-time Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year QB Braxton Miller have he reinjured his surgically repaired shoulder.
Miller, who just on Monday said the shoulder was fine and “100 percent,” injured the shoulder in the Orange Bowl against Clemson. The Buckeyes would go on to lose the game 40-35.
Ohio State was only recently ranked No. 5 in the AP college football poll. With the loss of Miller for any extended period of time, the Buckeyes’ entire season could fall apart, even with arguably the best defensive line in the nation.
Miller led the Big Ten in passing TDs, passing efficiency, yards per play and total TDs in 2013. He was 9th in the voting for the Heisman trophy, but lost to FSU QB Jameis Winston. In 2012 he was 5th in voting for the Heisman trophy – Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel won that year.
