Disagree. The story here is your starting QB isn't taking reps with 14 days before the season opener. That's bizarre, and potentially real cause for concern.
The timeline is bizarre, too. We start in late July with Urban declaring Braxton is "in the best shape of his life" and "100 percent" ready to go at Big Ten Media Days. A week later, when it was clear Miller wasn't throwing the ball much, it turned into "we're just easing him in, he's fine, it's part of the plan" (paraphrasing). Last Sunday, it was "if the game was tomorrow, we'd be very cautious with him." Yesterday, it was "he's still limited, we hope/we think he'll be ready. But we can't run our first-team offense like we want to."
My point is the talking points changed from "he's completely fine, he's in the best shape of his life" to "we hope/we think/we're confident he'll be fine by the opener." Those are two really different things. It's clearly a matter that's out of Urban's control, and you can hear the frustration in his voice. I believe Urban when he says he thinks Braxton will be ready because of course he does. But to definitively say he's completely fine and there's nothing (even every-so-slightly) wrong here is misleading.
He had surgery in February.
Steve Miller and Rashad Frazier are competing for playing time in his absence.
Fixed. Fat fingers on the phone. Thank you.
Appreciate that, thank you.
