I respectfully disagree.  First off I believe he was legitimately playing injured for much of the game.  I blame that somewhat on the coaches for not at least bringing him out for a few series to really find out.

Secondly, I don't think a player who is protecting himself for the NFL is going to try to bowl over a defensive player like he did on that touchdown.  That seemed like all effort to me.

I know we should be happy with 12-0 followed by 12-2, and I agree that those are seasons that 95% of the college football world would love.  But heading into the new playoff format this team will be much better of if they can turn into a 12-1 type team who beats big opponents like some of our upcoming OOCs and drops a game that they shouldn't to what people view as an inferior team.  

Take the '98 team for instance.  That team lost a game they never should have.  But if you put them in a championship game with anyone that year I would have had about 100 times more confidence in them than I would have this team at 13-0 on a 25 game win streak.  I guess my point is that it's not all about the record.  What this team accomplished the last two seasons was great, but to view them a great or elite team might not really be correct.  Not bashing, just my two cents.

I don't think you should be down voted. And Braxton may be a very good college athlete, but as far as QB goes I think he's hit his ceiling.

Ironically at the beginning of the year I actually thought he had improved as a passer but I think that part of his game regressed as the end of the season came.

Unfortunately I just don't think you can rely on him to win the game with his arm.  I know he has but those seem to be sort of "miracle" plays (ala Wisconsin at the Shoe the season before last).
