It is funny to read that people think we deserve 100% honesty from Miller and Meyer. Coaches use disinformation and obscure the truth as a competitive advantage. If Meyer is bluffing it is fine with me, if Miller is 75% it is fine that he is saying he is 100%. They don't owe fans the truth at the expense of obscuring it from our opponents.
How does it benefit OSU if Meyer comes out today and says "Braxton will miss the first 4 games" even if it is the god's honest truth?
Meyer is a tactician. He has been quietly having a QB competition between Jones and Barrett for the #2 job all spring and summer. It gets a little press because they are replacing Kenny G as a back up but the distraction to the team and coaches if the media 100% knew this competition was for the starting job for 1 week or 6 would be absurd.
Meyer would be a fool to reveal the truth if it involved Miller being out for any length of time.
