There aren’t many players who hold the importance of Braxton Miller.
It might sound strange, bestowing this kind of meaning on one quarterback. But through that college football prism, Miller’s Monday-night injury — the one that reports say could knock him out for the entire season — could be as big as they come.
Of course, the first thought is what the loss of Miller would mean to Ohio State. Putting it lightly, it would mean a heck of a lot. Miller is the Buckeyes’ best player, the two-time reigning Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year and a back-to-back top-10 finisher in voting for the Heisman Trophy. He was the only player on a Power 5 conference team to pass for 2,000 yards and rush for another 1,000 yards last season.
