Picking one is not dissing the other two.  There are three skill sets.  Miller brings an excitement factor into play that the others don't. 

As Urban says, "the QB is a product of the players around him" -- but having B. Miller as the 11th man on the squad puts the other team on alert.  J.T. and Cardale may be able to win as game managers, but Miller can intimidate as a game breaker.

Part of the fun of being a Buckeye FAN is being able to sit back and watch, knowing we are going to win but not knowing just how it will happen.  We speculate and create all these incredibly high and unrealistic expectations, then watch as the Coaching staff directs the players to exceed even those.

This is a great time to be a Buckeye.

Why not decide on a game-to-game basis, after assessing the opponent's defense and determining which particular skill set will give the other team the most difficulty?  We have three proven starting QB's and our Offense has three separate and effective personalities. 

But then, I have never coached an elite FB team, so maybe ... just maybe ... UFM (watching how the team responds to each man and consulting game videos and his staff of experienced and competent coaches) will have a better handle on what to do than I do (sitting in my man cave in upstate New York, staring out at the snow and minus 20 degree weather, wondering if my pipes are going to freeze).

With the depth Urban has built, perhaps he'll go with a platoon system.  In my concept there will be two primary QBs, each with his own complete offensive platoon.  They will alternate series and run up tempo.  Each will watch how the defense is trying to stop the other unit and make adjustments on the sidelines as the other unit is on the field. 

I didn't say it was a good idea or concept -- just a way to employ more than one QB.  The question then becomes which QB is odd man out?  To which I say, Braxton would make a dangerous H-back.
