Last season, Braxton Miller was having his way rushing the ball. There were several games that he ripped some amazing runs (think california, penn state). A few times, like against nebraska, he nearly eclipsed 200 yards rushing. He seemed to hit a wall, though, against wisconsin:

Did wisconsin write the blue print for stopping Braxton's rushing attack? I hate to say it, but I've got images in my head of him dancing around near the sideline, not getting anywhere up field. The main reason this is upsetting to me, is that if teams are that focused on stopping Braxton on the ground, why isn't he having more success throwing the ball? The 4th Q against Northwestern this Saturday was a nice recovery, but still I'm concerned about his ability to get up field running the ball.
