Go ahead, call him Honey Braxton. We dare you.

Spence hit him so hard it changed his hair color?

Lol either that or the steam coming from his head after the play.

Dye it any color you want, work hard, hit the books, play well, be yourself.

well, I am keeping my mouth shut, because I sported an afro and a long goatee during my study abroad in Chile, and I think my classmates were kind of scared of the Gringo coming to class with a blue hoodie, pajama pants and a fat dip in his lip.....

fat dip in his lip.....

BUCKEYES BABY!

AcrossTheField11's picture

I brought dip into a soccer game in Sao Paulo Brazil and the stadium security nearly took me into custody thinking it was some form of illicit drug.  They don't really have tobacco down there outside of cigarettes and cigars, so I can imagine you'd look pretty funny with a chaw in the lip.

Time and change will surely show how firm they friendship... O-HI-O.

Doesn't look terrible. If this is the worst thing he- the star player on a high-profile team- gets himself up to, we're in pretty great shape.

You probably don't realize that's a link to what seemed like a funny little story that the 11W Staff pulled out of a long-lost link in the Michigan Daily.  And if you read the Comments under the story, I pretty much demolished it as any sort of serious reporting.  I actually asked one of the listed authors (a then-Michigan volleyball player named Lexi Zimmerman) about the "Maize/Sun copyright" story and she said that it was just something that someone, she could not remember who, said one time, she could not remember when.
Anyway, read the Comments. 
And Brax; love the look!

Nappy's picture

You probably don't realize, but as long as we're referred to as "Ohio" we'll refer to you as "Sun".

I disagree with you.  Here's the quote:

They didn't copyright the term "Maize" being used to describe yellow. That's not possible, and a judge would throw that out in a second.
What they did do is copyright the usage of the term Maize to describe X color value when used on athletic gear sold by competing corporations for the University of Michigan. Rather than just create a different shade of yellow and also call it Maize, which would be somewhat confusing and possibly could be contested in court, Adidas decided it would be simpler to create a new shade and and give it a new name, and trademark THAT. So now, Michigan can have their stuff, call it Maize and everything is fine, but Adidas can't list the color as "Maize" in commercial documents. IE: Why does one paint brand call it "lavender sunset" and the other calls it "dusty rose"? This is why.

The name of the color is sun.  I personally use the 'term' highlighter to describe it because that is closer to what I see.  Either of us are able to use what ever term we like to describe the color.  That doesn't change the fact that the actual name of the color is sun.

I guess that is better than referencing the villain and teenage street gang from "The Meteor Man" . . . which is a reference some people would get . . . if they also made poor decisions . . . and watched very crappy movies.

That's the most obnoxious haircut in the world, I don't care what anyone else says. It's stupid. Most of my hate of it derives from when a rival high school's starters all got that same haricut when they won a state championship in football.

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

JakeBuckeye's picture

A bunch of the annoying-dumb-as-bricks football players got that haircut at my high school during the season, as well. So annoying, but hey, its not so annoying when I see it on Braxton.

lljjgg's picture


The waves always kind of reminded me of an 80s Eddie Murphy movie hairstyle. Not to say that this is necessarily an upgrade, but it's a change for sure haha. If it adds to his confidence (?) I'm onboard. Maybe the mohawk will keep his helmet on straight, preserving the clarity of his vision through the facemask, improving his overall awareness and accuracy. Okay I'm stretching it here...

That pic reminds me that it's been 10 years since i've had waves like that.

heartofabuckeye's picture

Please tell me that the SI article hasn't gone to his head. Not saying that Spence's hit was called for, but perhaps it was just a natural Buckeye reaction to seeing that color !The last time I saw this young man he looked as though he represented " The Ohio State University ". Now he looks like a Rodman wannabe. WTH? That color makes me want to puke !

I hope this is a belated April Fools joke.

Whatever, it's his head.  As long as he doesn't sprout dreads that an opposing player can get a hold of, I wouldn't worry too much.

It's just hair guys. He's in college, let him live a bit.

Why is this hairstyle a thing? I've never seen anyone come close to pulling that off
That being said, I really don't care what the hell he does with his hair

At least he's the quarterback and not the point guard. We won't have to see it as much.

I was going to say that the yellow mohawk seems out of character, as from what I've read he's a quiet guy.....
And then I remembered that when I was in high school, my pic was in the paper for the quiz team going to nationals (yes, I am a nerd), and I was sporting bright red hair and black fingernails. Oh, the style choices of the mid-90s...

EvanstonBuckeye's picture

Good for him. That's the stuff you (can) do when you're in college. Tougher to stroll into the office with a fresh yellow mohawk, or faux-hawk, or fro-hawk. Or AJ Hawk.

The AJ Hawk is a three-star haircut.

No Brax happen to watch an old move with Dennis (the worm) Rodman or maybe He watched Demolitionman with Wesly Snips you never know but as much trouble as the honey badger is having i think it is not related.
(But i do think he lost a bet and it was probley on the NCAAM trouny)
 

Earle's picture

He ain't come to play beauty school...wait, wrong QB.

Italics are for emphasis.

Squirrel Master's picture

I truly wish he would have gone with a more scarlett and gray color scheme, but I will say...

He did this so that when refs see him get tackled and see the yellow color, it prompts them to throw the flag!

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!
