Does anybody know the going rate on a billboard? Because somebody spent some coin on a premium spot to place a get-well-soon card to Ohio State's fallen Heisman hopeful.

Get better No. 5, indeed.

That's probably an NCAA violation.

I would be surprised if the university had anything to do with it.

No violation here. it says No. 5 they could mean Raekown or someone on another athletic team at TOSU or even a no.5 somewhere else.

I don't have a No. 5 jersey, and I'm in no shortage of OSU game gear. 

This weekend, I'm picking up a No. 5 jersey.

Me too BuckToast. This kid has done a lot for the program and he obviously cares. Let's reciprocate the feeling.

Cheers to whoever signed the check for that billboard.

I hope Braxton gets a tree in Buckeye Grove, he needs to be remembered as one of our all time greats.

This type of positivity is how a fanbase should react when something like this happens....glad to see it.  No place for the negativity that some "fans" are showing in writing off the season.  Get healthy Brax!

Our honor defend we will fight to the end for OHIO!

Insert clapping gif, preferably a slow clap

The last 24 hours have been gut wrenching. I am not sure why, but the billboard brought out the emotional side of me.

I love my home state and my university and I am so proud to be a BUCKEYE!

Hope your recovery goes well Braxton and the BuckeyeNation is behind you!

Or owns a billboard that needs a new customer.  Either way it's a great gesture.
