Braxton Miller is Bane from 'The Dark Knight Rises'

Last week, ESPN's Adam Rittenberg listed Braxton Miller as a potential "Big Ten villain." This week, it appears Braxton Miller has taken that role to heart.

Here's a photo he posted this morning on Instagram:


I don't know why he's wearing shoulder pads here, but it appears Braxton likes that look

Ohio State's senior signal caller, who's rehabbing a shoulder injury, is wearing one of those newfangled elevation training masks, which promise increased lung capacity, anaerobic thresholds, oxygen efficiency and energy production, among other things.

Of course, it also looks a lot like the mask Bane wore as the villain in the 2012 blockbuster, The Dark Knight Riseswhich is nice.

The problem, for Ohio State fans, anyway, is Bane died in the fourth quarter — a mere five yards from accomplishing his goals.
