Two-time Big Ten offensive player of the year, quarterback Braxton Miller, re-injured his throwing shoulder in practice on Monday. He might miss the entire season. Seriously, he could really miss the whole year, a dislocated shoulder (we’ll know more after the MRI) is nothing to mess with.

So to Buckeyes fans, quoting fictional Springfield newsman Kent Brockman:

“is this the time to panic, start cracking open each other’s heads and feast on the goo inside? I would say yes, Kent.”

Ohio State officials declined to confirm Miller was hurt or speak to the severity of the injury. They even cancelled all media availability for the day to this situation. But said they would provide more information later in the day when they have more info. Here’s what we know so far.

Is Ohio St. being straight with us on the health of Braxton Miller?

Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller is probably the most decorated player of Big Ten Media Day the past few years. Despite the fact that he is yet to win a Big Ten title. He gets a lot of love from the local media, who do nothing but toss him softball questions. To be fair, I have heard one reporter jokingly say to him at a media day: “only 20 more minutes of torture,” denoting the time remaining in the press conference session.

Ohio State stays undefeated despite struggles on both sides of the ball

In spite of themselves, the Buckeyes are still undefeated on the young season. Coach Urban Meyer narrowed the problems to “offense, defense and special teams,” expressed his disappointment and said his players have to get dramatically better before opening Big Ten play at No. 21 Michigan State on Saturday.

Despite the lackluster efforts on all three phases, Ohio State still beat UAB 29-15. The offense has been too reliant on Braxton Miller, who came leading the Big Ten in rushing. He ran for two more scores today, but the team itself struggled versus a unit known to give up 44 points per game.

Ohio State Extends Badgers Nightmare on the Road (Rapid Reaction)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In what has become a very bizarre or mediocre year (whatever you would like to call it) in the Big Ten, one of the conference’s perceived best received their second loss. Dan “Boom” Herron and Braxton Miller ran wild as the Ohio State Buckeyes shocked the Wisconsin Badgers in a 33-29 win.

Ohio State’s (5-4, 2-2) offense methodically out-played Wisconsin’s (6-2, 2-2) offense and took advantage of many defensive miscues from the Badgers. None bigger than the secondary’s blown coverage with 20 seconds in the fourth quarter when Miller connected with Devin Smith for a wide-open and game-winning 40 yard touchdown.
