J.T. vs. Braxton in 2015

I'm obviously getting way ahead of myself, but was wondering what would happen in 2015 when Braxton comes back if J.T. has a monster season this year?  Will there be a competition?  Will Braxton forgo coming back if his draft prospects are good enough and the Buckeyes are left in good hands?

I know this is far too early, but I figured no better place to pose this debate than 11W.

What a great problem to ponder.

My fault - I searched the topics, but didn't go back far enough!  Sorry, is there anyway to take this down?

As long as people are commenting I would leave it up. Not everyone saw the other poll, either. GO BUCKS!

It'd be an interesting problem to have. I think the majority of the team would be clamoring for Braxton just because of the type of dude he is. Also, Meyer is really fond of Miller. Not saying he doesn't like J.T., but I think he has a lot of respect for the things Brax has had to endure and how hard he plays.

Like you mention - I have to imagine Braxton has earned enough respect from the coaches and his teammates to get the starting job back without question.  Plus no coach would want any "QB controversy" to distract the team.  

I have a strong feeling Miller will step up big this year as a team leader off the field, mentoring the young group of QBs as well as getting even more "mental reps" in this system.

Whatever happens though, I'm still pumped for the season to start finally!

If JT wins it all he will be in 2015.  Not sure where the cutoff is between 0-14 and an NC but there is a point where jt stays.

Braxton will be the starter in 2015 if he is completely healthy again.

Just a debate - plus what else would I be doing as productive as posing hypothetical questions about the roster 12 months from now??? (meant to be sarcastic)

It is no different than what happened last year with KG. The back up goes in (2,3 14 games) does what they are supposed to do then hand the keys back to BM if/when he is healthy. You don't leave a 2 time B10 POY on the bench. NO WAY.

Don't play Miller; he's just gonna get hurt for the 5th year in a row (9 if you count high school).

And then I told her...i'm no weatherman, but tonight's forecast is calling for several inches!
