Nobody in these parts wants Johnny Manziel (or any non-Buckeye footballer) to tie Archie "2Heizmanz" Griffin's record, but some are torn by cheering on Jameis Winston, however, because the redshirt freshman will have at least another chance to win another trophy next year. So why not back Braxton's late push? From CBS:
On his way to the team bus after rushing for 184 yards against Illinois last week, Miller told CBSSports.com he understands the unpredictable nature of the Heisman race -- a bad week or two and you're gone.
“I want to get back in that talk,” Miller said.
... Sporting News wanted wins and more accuracy. Miller is 10-0 and improved his passing from 58.3 to 68 percent. His passer rating is up from 140.5 to 165.3.
Braxton, despite the MCL sprain, has had quite the remarkable year. (68% completion rate, are you kidding?) He might be on the outside looking in, and his best hope may be a "mere" invite to the ceremony in New York, but hey, Johnny Football won the Heisman basically for beating Alabama at home last year; so anything is possible. He'll probably need his best performance of his career against Michigan to earn a late-season push from Heisman voters.
