In difficult times, kind of nice to see support from around the country:

A bunch of angry Buckeyes...feel a bit slighted? Its not fair about Miller, now step up and show why you are contenders fellas. I am 100% percent confident in every member of this team to give 110% for Miller

As far as I know, she's perfection.

(Then again, all I know is that she used to write for 11W, is gorgeous, and likes food).

Elika was a writer on 11W in the early days.  She left to pursue other endeavors in the sports reporting field about 2 years ago.  She was and is a fantastic writer with a broad base of sports knowledge (no pun intended).  Not to mention she is quite hot.  Great combination for any woman.

2 things, I like what Lee has to say.  I have a good feeling about it.  Second is to Herbie.  Next time you want to pick OSU for a title or a Heisman, publically name your second choice please, Thanks.

And how about a simple feel bad tweet instead of adding the change of record and all that in there... Not needed at the time. Could definitely wait.

I know right! Herbie is a Class A dope with adding the record to the tweet.

Yeah, well…that’s just like, your opinion, man.

And people wonder why Herbie is detested in Columbus. Way to hit us with the wet wash cloth, dude.

Herbstreit cannot help himself.  He's an egomaniac.   He just had to take a "get well" Tweet and make it about his predicitions.

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 means the defense is going to destroy people, and our offense can hum without Braxton.

Barrett is an unproven commodity (Jones as well), and they don't get to just slide into Braxton's pre-season Heisman spot, and nobody is going to predict they can be #5. And they will not, there is only one Braxton Miller.

But unproven doesn't mean incapable. 

GO BUCKS!

Thank the Maker that I was born in Ohio, cradle of coaches, US Presidents, confederate-stomping Generals, and home of The Ohio State University Football Buckeyes!

Oh Elika, don't hurt for Braxton too much...

If he never plays another down of football again, he'll cash out a $1m insurance policy. Not a terrible consolation prize..

So....only Herbie's tweet (of the sampling here) goes straight back to on-field implications.  Everyone else is simply sad / supporting Braxton pretty much.  Good job Herbie.  (note the sarcasm on the last sentence)

Give the guy a break, everyone wants to know how it's going to affect the Buckeyes on the field, people follow him on Twitter to hear things other than how sad he is for the kid. Everyone should be sad for Braxton, that should really go without saying that Herbie wishes he wasn't hurt, and hopes he recovers quickly.

Run_Fido_Run's picture

I know, it looks like he's been working hard on twitter today. Two tweets: the one above and another one an hour later in which predicts Michigan State to be in the 4 team playoff.

OSU_JD's picture

I do not understand your perspective.  Sure, we want to *know* how it will affect the Buckeyes...but how does Herbstreit help that goal?

The team might feel slighted somewhat with everyone ( fans ) thinking it all starts and ends with Braxton.  Here's hoping they all pull together, rally around JT,  take their games to another level and play with an attitude.

Take care of your shoulder, Braxton, you are already a legend around these parts.

It's not about the money or the team. It's about a young man who poured his heart and soul into his four years. What hurts is Braxton not getting to cash in on all of his hard work, blood, sweat, tears, etc. In life, as with athletics, there is no more satisfying feeling than achieving success because of the WORK you put in. The GRIND is worth it in that moment. That's why I'm sad.

God bless you Braxton. You're gonna be ok because of the person you are. When Woody said "You win with people" he was talking about Braxton Miller.

Easy man. Whether or not he plays again, his football career and life are far from over. He will be a part of this program in some capacity, or even with his HS. However, he knows the game far too well to not be a part of it for many years to come.
