Miller hopes to unseat Johnny Manziel.

The relationship between George Whitfield and Braxton Miller is well-documented. Even in the summer, Whitfield is helping the Heisman hopeful. 

With strict NCAA rules in the area of coach and player contact, Miller has used Whitfield as a source of improvement. During the winter, a time Ohio State's coaches and players weren't permitted to have contact, Miller, accompanied by wide receiver Michael Thomas, traveled to San Diego for a session with the quarterback guru. Whitfield has a long list of high-profile clients, including Ben Roethlisberger, Cam Newton and Johnny Manziel. He also worked with Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner

Two weeks ago, Whitfield was in Columbus, where he posted several tweets from the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. Two weeks later, he continues to help Miller reach elite status.

He was already good. George rebuilt him. He has the technology.

I wasn't implying that he wasn't good before this. But the fact that he is striving to get better on his own time and on his own dime is very nice to hear.

I know. I'm just saying that BraxTron is going to be a cybernetic organism destroying the humans this season.

He's more machine now than man. His spiral is twisted and evil.

Darth Miller and Emperor Urban?  I could get behind this.

Good stuff.

I know this offense is still predicated on the power run, and obviously Brax's mobility won't be shelved.

But really eager to see a serious uptick in the productivity of the pass game. Between the experience of the returning receivers, the talent of the new ones, the polish of the o-line and the desire to improve shown by #5 this offense looks ready to reach new heights.

I hope everyone isn't disappointed with Miller's performance this year.  I feel there's a good chance that he isn't nearly as dynamic running the ball, but makes a modest step in the passing game and performs better as a QB who is an athlete rather than a great athlete playing QB like he was last year.

With the proven talent we have at RB along with our coaching/schemes, I think it'd be great if he runs much less.

Here's to believing he will be as dynamic running, if maybe for less yards as there will be more options, and that he makes the modest improvements in passing to be a true dual threat QB

Personally, I'd be as happy to see him improve his reads in the options game as I would to see him improve his passing. That's still going to be the core of our offense, and what keeps giving Hyde plenty of space to work in.

I couldn't agree with you more... I love BraxTron (my son's name is Braxton also, thought it was original and uncommon in Jan of 2004- guess who his favorite player is...), but last year I thought I was the only one who thought he took entirely TOO long to make a read on the DE and decide to give or keep... El Guapo carried for great gains often but I felt like his touches were entirely too limited... Interested if the 11W community agrees or disagrees??

With the returning and additional weapons we will have running the ball and more playbook depth, Braxton will be called upon to run much less. However, when he does run, theres a high likelihood it makes sportscenter.  I hope we see vast improvement with his throwing mechanics and reads because he will have a S--T load of WR talent to throw to for the next couple yrs.

Life's daily struggle is choosing between saying F--ck-it, or soldiering on with your responsibilities.

Glad to see the improvement in Brax360 but honestly, I think our running game might explode this year.  Our stable of running backs is the best in many years.
