RIP Braxton Miller's blond mohawk

You can breathe easy Columbus America. Braxton Miller's blond mohawk is no more.

Appearing on ESPN's College Football Live Tuesday, Miller's hair was back in its natural state, if a bit elevated into a stylish high top fade.

Rece Davis wasted little time asking Miller about the choice of hairstyle to which Miller said: "I don't know if you've seen some pictures or not. I don't know if that was me."

RIP Braxton's blond mohawk.

That Mohawk was absolutely hideous. Now that it is gone I might be able to sleep at night.

I think I'd be quite okay if he grew it out and sported this exact same pose after the National Championship game...

No thanks.

Some of you might not be old enough to remember this .... but if you do, it's always nice to reminisce about the good times.

Those of us old enough to remember what this is may have noticed one of the cheer leaders (male) did the Kid N Play Kick Step with Brutus during Buckeye Swag at the games last year. I was amazed, as I tried to replicate this move with my cousin millions of times, way back in the 90's.

I think most of us who were around back then tried (and mostly failed) to replicate the ole Kid N Play Kick Step, myself included.

My only question would be, if he sported this do (which would be great), how would he get his helmet on?

Unky Buck's picture

Vrabel would clearly need to push down on the helmet while Coombs would snap in the chin strap. From that point on, he can never unsnap the chin strap.

They might constitute that as a weapon on the playing field. He could unsnap the helmet and it would launch knocking out half the opposing defense!
ala Inspector Gadget style!

Did he have the big, blingy ring on??

The first man gets the ((((Oyster)))), the second man gets the shell.

Whew... well at least he still has those ;)

Heh, kids should be required to wear them for all public appearances.

Anyone have the video for this? I can't find it on ESPiN

I believe it is still being shot or produced as part of their series of spring practice episodes for several different schools.

I liked the Hawk.  You only have a small window to be a "kid", let him be one.

I think a scarlet hawk would have been more appropriate.

Any body know where we can get a video recap?

Hah, glad it's gone.

A spring thing. The mohawk obviously wouldn't be Heisman campaign-conducive.

Thank god. That thing was hideous. #honeybeardontgiveash**

If the wacky blond-ish-mohawk is is the biggest "scandal" of the past month then I say they can all "dye-up".   I would guess his stylist or some goofball friend suggested it but afterwards Brax realized it wasn't that great yet kept the cut.
Throw that first stone if you are male and didn't have a stupid haircut at some point from 10th grade thru college. 
I won't even go into being female and having a stupid haircut because we (females) will only argue amongst ourselves as to what is "vogue" and "not vogue"... so it's relative. 
Is it September yet? It's going to be a long summer.   I imagine a Mohawk will be cooler for the head than dreadlocks.  :)

Great point, Idaho.  My haircuts from the 70's were horrible and embarrassing, a real abomination. I have no stones to throw at Brax.

Idaho Helga's picture

Thanks, and we all might have more pics to post but if you're like me, I've burned the worst, hideous photos so the kids couldn't dig them up and torment us. 
(Never mind the photos I still have of them at 2 yrs old!)

I can't throw any stones. All my haircuts were stupid when I was younger. ALL of them. but I fixed my little red wagon...I went bald.

I've kept my haircuts pretty simple since highschool. Tight fade, and that's it.

I felt it needed reiterating

That is the correct response!

Ok. It was hideous. Up for the giant stone toss.

Good riddance.

It was bad, and surprising given the high level of exposure he receives. Glad he decided it was not the look he wanted.
Still love that kid.... A certain future Buckeye Hall of Famer.
