ESPN's College Football Live bus tour is in Columbus today and Urban Meyer sat down to talk with his buddy Joe Tessitore.

Meyer, the jokester, on fall camp this week: "The first day was tradition day – nothing but the Buckeye band and all the great music. We got 'shark week' coming up, we got 'animal kingdom' coming up."

Quarterback Braxton Miller took time to speak with Buckeye great Joey Galloway:

Meyer and the Buckeyes will appear later on ESPN2 at 5 p.m.

Pure awesomeness. They mentioned an all-access portion to the tOSU special. Does anyone have a link to that?

Seconded

Bet you can't say "Bert Bielma is a bumbling buffoon" five times fast.

I just watched another Sportscenter segment. They had Joey Galloway, Tessitore, and some other guy on there. Very surprisingly, they were gushing over Braxton Miller and saying how the offense is going be be super explosive this year. They also made it sound like we were a national title team. ESPN giving us some love? Can it be?

2012, Braxton not ready = 12-0.
2013, Braxton "just about ready," "Knows the offense." = goosebumps.

Damn. I'm so glad that guy is our coach.

I. Love. This. Kid.

This. Too bad every player can't be as humble and talented as #5

No, he is wearing a sweatshirt that says Legend on it. He is the most selfish person on Earth. Not like I'm being over-sensitive or anything.

"If they break down, I might run right past" LOL!

I love it.  I'd tell them to break down... oh wait that wouldn't work.
I laughed out loud in the office.

He really wanted to say "close your eyes and pray for the best"

Man, football needs to get here like now. Eighteen more days to go!

So Braxton only gave himself a D+ last year?  Man, I can't even imagine what an 'A' would look like, but I sure hope to find out starting in 18 days.

Embrace it.

BTBuckeye's picture

D+ is a little harsh, but he wasn't exactly a juggernaut throwing the ball exactly. If his form and footwork as a QB improve, man, he's going to be fun to watch!
I love how he doesn't dance or go sideways; he's almost always North/South in his attack of the field.

Urban Nation Army's picture

The D+ was on leadership specifically, not on the field play.

No, it was on fundamentals!

Get the kicker off the field! 10/6/2012

Anyone have a link to the sportcenter all access video that is talked about in the meyer interview?

I saw it. You didn't miss much. It was very short. Basically just Meyer saying "Let's go, have a good day!" a bunch of times. That and he talked briefly with the kicker.

Anybody know what the black thing is on the crown of Braxton's helmet?

BKLYN_Buckeye's picture

I was thinking either a camera or a monitor (for brain activity?). Just some guesses. 

brandonbauer87's picture

Could be an impact sensor type thing. Kind of like concussion detection. 

Alpo's picture

Looked like some sort of clip where a camera could be mounted. Feel like I've seen video from the QBs eyes somewhere before

Codeezy's picture

I am so excited. EzE and Wilson game 1? How will I sleep?

I thought that was a no brainer. Ohio State should be up 5 TD's by halftime, 

Boomcat's picture

Watching BTN's preview show tonight made me think that first game will be 100 to zero. Holy cow Braxton looked completely different, as did the rest of the offensive players.

okiebuck's picture

You can tell just by the way Braxton carries himself that he is so much more confident and mature; yet still humble that he HAS become a leader; what a great kid.
Stay healthy Braxton and Go Bucks!

don't want to down on the complimenting braxton parade, but it's hard to compliment a guy's humility when he's wearing a sweatshirt that features a hand pointing at himself saying "legend." 
 
of course, i happen to agree with the sweatshirt, so it's all good by me.

Dude, it's a shirt. If my shirts from 20 years old defined who I was as a person?? Oh god. The thought alone scares me

brandonbauer87's picture

You mean the shirt I used to have that said "I like girls, who like girls" is going to define me?

Crimson's picture

Yes, and this is for you.

pcon258's picture

chill dude. just pointing out the irony

Hovenaut's picture

Yes sir, I am ready for football.

Thanks for these links! Good God I'm ready to climb the walls over hear! Lets Get it On!

Braxton really seems like a good dude. After he stomps TTUN on November 30th, I'd like to have a beer with him to celebrate his 21st birthday.

I didn't have the time to read anything here but watch that and GO BUCKS!   I am still fuzzy that I am more excited about my Current coach than Tressel!  Good Lord, It's great to be a Buckeye!

pjtobin's picture

Please do your thing this year xbrax! Then stay next year too! If all goes as planned and are stud Jr's stay we could 50-0 after the nc game next year! I know. I'm the one always saying one game at a time. But that is something to dream about. Right?

Bury me in my away jersey, with my buckeye blanket. A diehard who died young. Rip dad.

Just stay healthy and you will shine, brother. 

Don't give up... Don't ever give up.

Dontre and EzE will play as true freshmen. Not pusuing a RB in '14. Anybody know who is on the radar for '15? Urban should have good leverage for landing a top recruit that yr. being two years removed from anyone else.

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