  • SPORTS MOMENT: The 2007 game against TTUN. It's the only game against them I have been to. The O-H-I-O chant in the Big House is something I won't forget.

Toward the end if the year, JT had plenty of overthrows. It has happened to Braxton at the end of the year too. I would argue that when Miller is hot, nobody is a better passer on the team. He has a cannon and has games where his completion % is 75+. However, he can be inconsistent as well. Many people seem to only remember his "bad" games, but Miller is as capable as the other two Especially with Michael Thomas and Jalil Marshall, he will have more weapons this year than he has ever had. At the end of the day though, whoever wins the competition will be a fantastic quarterback who has the ability to win a championship.

I know he played basketball as well his first two years of high school, but I think he decided to focus on football when he went to corner canyon high school his junior year.

Bingham football is ridiculous. They might be the biggest school in the state. They certainly have got athletic teams.
Comment 25 May 2015

Jordan may be the "Greatest of All Time," but I would say that Lebron may be the best player of all time. In baseball, Babe Ruth is the greatest player of all time because of what he meant to the game and his dominance at the time. However, it is doubtful that he is the best player of all time. The athletes now are unbelievable. I don't believe that Jordan would be as dominant as he was if he played today. However, he meant more to the sport than anybody.

If I could pick one player to start an All-Time Team, I would pick Lebron James. His versatility makes him slightly more valuable to a team than Jordan.

It is a lot of fun, particularly two player matches with another person locally. It is addicting as can be too. Very solid game.

I could see it ending with Don jumping out of a building, like in the credit sequence. However, I feel that will not be the case. I think he leaves for good; he has enough money to not work. Glenn needs to make an appearance. He is a legend.

Honestly, I don't like to see it end. It has been an excellent series and I am not sure how it will be wrapped up. It seems like the characters have a lot of interesting stuff ahead of them still.

Jeff Heurman arguably had as good of a year last year (466 yards, 4 TDs) than all of the tight ends combined this year (429 yards, 8 TDs). Heurman was probably the second receiver that Miller would look for, besides Philly Brown. Miller definitely found the tight ends at least as much as the other two did. There were not as many touchdowns last year, but with a guy like Carlos Hyde, why throw it to a tight end?

Comment 25 Apr 2015

Philly Brown had like 6 catches that game against MSU. Braxton found him plenty of times. He seemed to be the only competent receiver down the stretch. Devin Smith had like 2 catches the last 3 games last year. He played much better this year. Pre-season projections of Devin Smith's draft status often had him as undrafted or a late round guy. Also, there were several drops in the B1G Championship game. If those are caught, it is a completely different day for Miller.

Comment 25 Apr 2015

I would not be surprised if his arm came back stronger than Barrett's arm. Cardale is a different story. Many people forget that Braxton Miller had a hose before he went down with the injury. Even with a torn shoulder he was firing the ball to receivers in the Clemson game.

There is always hope. Whenever this happens I wait in anticipation with glee. However, I am always disappointed. I do not know if there will ever be another "BUCKSFAN CHANGING ICON" thread. This is off to a good start, though.

Comment 08 Apr 2015

There is no chance. I got a 35 with a 3.9 GPA and I certainly didn't get into any Ivy League schools. Got into the colleges I wanted to get into, including Michigan, just so I could turn them down.

Comment 16 Mar 2015

I grew up a big time Ohio State fan but will be attending the University of Utah as a student this fall.

I will be at the game, and you better believe that I will be clad in Scarlet and Gray. Never been this excited to go to a game that Ohio State isn't playing in.

Comment 07 Mar 2015

I disagree to a certain extent. JT and Cardale both had far more "push passes" than Braxton did, and JT in particular had far more short passes than Braxton did. JT also has a tendency to overthrow guys often. 

These are small things, though. Any one of these guys could lead Ohio State to another National Championship next year, especially with the running game that they already have.

I used to see white and gold. Now I see black and blue. For awhile I saw gold and blue. I don't understand.

Comment 24 Feb 2015

I am hoping to study Electrical Engineering at Ohio State next year, but picking a college is hard. 

Comment 16 Feb 2015

I think he has elite quickness and speed. He ran a 4.36 at the Opening as a senior in high school. For comparison's sake, Dontre Wilson ran a 4.51 at the Opening as a senior in high school. Devin Smith is around the 4.4-4.5 range. I would have to say that Curtis Samuel is the fastest and the quickest. His speed is unbelievable.
