PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
What percent chance do you think Brax gets the invite?
Not sure. Most places I've looked predict he'll finish 4th or 5th in the voting. Depends on how many guys they invite.
He'll go, like I've been saying since week 10...winning it...No. I hate to say it but most are going with Johnny football...

I would think they'd invite 4 or 5 just to have him go, and get more viewers/watercooler talk from #buckeyenation. Then again, the SEC probably runs it like everything else, and only Manziel will be there...
He's not going to win it, and honestly, after his last two games against Wisconsin and Michigan, he does not deserve it over Manziel. Braxton didn't play poorly (at least against Michigan he did not), but he did not put up "Heisman" numbers, either.
I'm just rooting that he gets invited. Give him a taste of the big-time, and let a whole bunch of people see and hear about him (and Coach Meyer) during an otherwise abnormally quiet bowl season for Ohio State.

I hope he is not in top 5. I want OSU to get no awards or recognition this year. Nothing like disrespect to fuel them in offseason workouts.
I think he gets the invite but like many of you said will not win it. I also believe that Manziel will not win based on him being a freshman and voters not voting for him based on this. I think he should win it though. I have to go with the surprise pick and say Te'o wins it because ND is #1 right now.
I'm kind of with the thinking of AUSMOS,in hoping he gets overlooked this year.Although a huge Braxton fan,stats went down last 2 games and every slight will just add more logs to the fire for next year.Can already hear the analysts lined up to talk abiout how weak our schedule is for next year and how insignificant our 12-0 season was this year.Meyer wants that chip on their shoulder next year...I think it's already their.that said,whoever isn't stroking Johnny football,is stroking Teo.
Braxton really seemed like he was holding back in the last two games. It just seemed like there was something wrong or something? When he'd take off to run, he just hesitated to much. It just seemed like you were watching a totally different player than all the other games. Well, besides the Purdue game of course.
I don't think he ever fully "recovered" after that Purdue hit. He just hasn't seemed the same since then IMO.
I (respectfully) disagree. I think he was so hesitant because both Wiscy and Mich*gan had 1 or 2 spies on him. More holes were plugged and he didn't know how to handle it instinctively enough. But, just my take on him.
You very well could be right my friend. I think it could also be that maybe since Wisconsin and TTUN were arguably our biggest games of the year that maybe he was a little hesitant because he didn't want to make any mistakes. It's nice to see respectful disagreements and not a downvote war starting!
He will go, but I don't believe he really has a chance in winning it this year. My guess is that it will be part of the hype machine for the 2013 tour. Nothing wrong with getting an early start.
Assuming they do invite 5, I think Braxton will get the invite, but probably finish fifth. The no-doubters are the nickname guy, Te'o, and Klein. Marquise Lee is probably also ahead of Miller in balloting.

I'll put Braxton's chances of an invitation somewhere around 70%.

Do we know what time will this be coming out tonight?
