Here's how Hollywood would play this:
(1) An injury to Wilson thins out offensive playmaker depth.
(2) OSU shows strong in November to get to the cusp of the Final Four. The Committee is on the fence about whether to include the B1G champ over the Big XII.
(3) On the eve of the Big Ten Championship Game, Jeff Heuerman unaccountably asks Urban if he can change his jersey number back to 86.
(4) To the utter shock of the Fox Sports announcers, Braxton Miller takes the field at starting H-back in Indianapolis, scoring 3 TD in a Buckeyes rout. In post-game interviews beside JT Barrett, a beaming Brax declares: "I told Coach, 'I want to do anything I can to help this team win a championship.'" Tim May of the Dispatch asks Miller if he's worried about protecting his right shoulder, which hasn't fully healed. Braxton answers: "I just try not to get tackled. And if I do, I try to land on the left one."
(5) The Mark Mays and Paul Finebaums of the world immediately step to mikes and cry foul, declaring that Coach Meyer will pull any kind of stunt to get the Playoff Committee's attention. Said Coach Meyer shrugs and says, "Show me four better teams in college football. 'Cause I haven't seen 'em."
(6) OSU heads down to the Sugar Bowl on January 1, and a barnburner of a game with Alabama breaks wide open when Braxton, checking into a wildcat formation to spell Barrett early in the fourth quarter, executes a masterful play fake, and with a bum shoulder heaves the football fifty yards downfield to a streaking Devin Smith for the go-ahead touchdown. Fans flood Twitter with mentions of Jake Taylor and Major League.
(7) A week later, the Ohio State Buckeyes rout the Florida State Seminoles 38-13 to win the first every College Football Playoff.
