Questions that need asked:

Will he ever play QB again?

Will he take a medical red shirt and comeback and battle Barrett for the starting position next year?

If he does would he beat out Barrett?

IF he does will he injure the shoulder again?

If he is told he will never throw the ball again, will he take a medical red shirt and come as a TB or WR.? 

If he does which position should he play.?

If he decides never to play football again will he finish his degree or drop out?

If he wants to finish his degree would Ohio State pay for it?

If that's the case does Braxton count as a player on the 85 man roster?

AMEN! As I replied I actually wondered if he was being serious and I should continue to play along with his game.

I'm not sure any of these questions NEED to be asked but give it a little time and we will find out the answer to most if not all.  Let's play the waiting game!

Yes he will be allowed to finish his degree for free. If not I am sure there will be an outrage and people will probably donate money to him to be able to do it. Also people need to realize how tough this is for him I'd he is not able to play football anymore. Just imagine not beino able to do something you loved anymore (like your wife) after you had so much success.

F--- Michigan!

My guess is that their wives may have a differing opinion on the matter.

Some of these questions no one has an answer to and others are just crazy.

Will he ever play QB again? Its a little early to run for the hills and start stocking up can goods in the basement. Besides, do you really think anyone on here has an answer to that question? 

If he does would he beat out Barrett? Really.......... Seriously tho, is this a real question?

Does he finish his degree or drop out? Drop out and do what? Again, is this a real question? Braxton has done nothing but show hes a class act and a determined individual. I cant say I see him dropping out. Period.

Would he take a redshirt to play RB or WR? And do what? Sit behind the 5 RBs currently ahead of him? Take a hit up the middle and get injured again? Oh yeah, I'd say he's all over that one.

I get the feeling some people (and I'm not trying to single out the OP here) post forum topics because it is extra points and exposure, but it really should be a comment in an already existing thread

At worst, he will get a medical redshirt this year --he never had a redshirt year anyways.  Drew Brees came back from a really bad shoulder injury, so it can be done.

If he's done for the year then he's going pro.  Gotta get paid at this point.

I agree. One way or another, 2014 is almost certainly his last as a Buckeye football player.

ESPN sports business reporter Darren Rovell noted Tuesday morning that Miller does have a $1 million insurance policy that safeguards his financial future should he not be able to play again. The premium was paid for by Ohio State.

He's graduating this fall, so he's basically already done with his degree.

And yes, Urban and OSU would absolutely pay for postgrad classes if he wanted to come back next year.

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.
