Before we even get started…
To the football…
The Buckeyes wrapped up another win on Saturday at Ohio Stadium against San Diego State to run their nations best streak to 14 games and 2-0 on the 2013 season. However, despite the relative ease on the scoreboard it was not without some tense moments and left plenty for us to talk about. It’s Wednesday, let’s rumble!
With complete certainty I can say that the most talked about thing to happen in the San Diego State game was when Braxton Miller went down early in the first quarter with a knee injury. Urban Meyer said that Miller is day to day in evaluation as to if he will play out in Berkeley this weekend against California. The dept chart released on Tuesday lists Miller as the starter.
In total honesty, that was a scary injury. It didn’t look as brutal as the slam to the turf against Purdue last year, but on replay it looked as though he could have sustained any of a multitude of injuries from knee problems to neck or head injuries.We all love that Braxton Miller plays the game fearless, but is it time for him to start thinking of the greater good and maybe trying to stay out of these particularly tight situations? Of course, the player is going to react and do what comes naturally. Is it imperative that the coaching staff, at least in these next two weeks leading into the Big Ten opener at home against Wisconsin, take it upon themselves to keep their star out of harms way?
I want to know what you think. In the comments section below, tell me if you think Urban and company should limit Braxton Miller’s potential for contact or if they should keep things as they are and let the kid play how he plays? Read More
