There is no guarantee the Braxton Miller will ever play QB again.  This type of injury to the throwing shoulder is not a lock for being rehabilitated to the level that it needs to be for him to play QB in college.  Having said that, I love a good comeback and I hope that it happens for him.

I predict one loss would make it difficult for Ohio State to get in.  The reality is that there is too much SEC bias.  You will hear this line or something similar "a two-loss SEC team is better than a one-loss team from any other conference" and ESPN will pimp the SEC hard, like always.

I would settle for a win in the opening game and then take them one at a time.  QB is a vital position in the current offense and to expect to make the playoffs with a totally fresh QB is not reasonable.  Nothing is impossible, I grant you that.

Losing the QB at any time is bad.  During the season would have been worse.  The throwing shoulder has to be demonstrably 100% or the opponent will camp on the weakness and overload their defense toward the weapons that remain.  Time to get someone else up to speed to be the starter if the worst happens and Miller cannot go.

If there is only one "most important player" then the defense will not be strong enough to win a championship.  When a program like OSU is in contention to win titles, there are several most important players involved, not one.  That's just how it works.

D-Line talent is good and getting better in all positions.  Having said that, Joey Bosa is something special, and he got my vote.

He likely didn't think that it was a serious thing.  A lot of guys hurl during summer conditioning and it isn't so much a macho thing to just deal with it as it is more just something that happens.  If dying on the practice field was a common event from heat that would be one thing, but everyone is hot, really hot, and you just work through it because it preps your body for the early season games.  I don't fault him for not thinking it was a life-threatening event at the time and asking for help sooner.

Mr. Stringer was an emotional player and a clutch player.  I have a lot of great memories of him.  The homecoming game against Michigan State when we drove down the field to win it at the end, and Korey standing on the field at one point and waving both arms to the crowd to stand up and cheer was one of my favorites.  He definitely was an emotional leader on the field, something you don't see that often from a tackle.  A very unique individual.

1975 Brutus looks like he is sporting an expression that is similar to one of  W. W. Hayes' expressions.  It is also similar to one of Neutron Man's expressions.  

Just sayin'....

Marijuana, alcohol, and even tobacco all have medicinal properties when used in that way i.e. for medicinal purposes.  Most often these are used by people to self-medicate instead which in the long run is not conducive to a constructive outcome of their use.  If the emotional level involved whenever these things are debated is taken into account, it is clear that there may be a lot of self-medication going on.  Not passing judgement, just sayin'...

Even under the sweater Eddie still is rockin' some mean looking pythons.  Athletes like him don't come along every day.  I don't recall any late night headlines from Eddie, just taking care of business when it was time to take care of business.  Coach Cooper used to talk about him being the hardest worker on the team.  Heisman Trophy his Senior year and then, his first two years in the NFL he was Rookie of the Year and then League MVP in his second year.  Oh, and he ran downhill and could run away from the defense as well.  If he approaches the job of husband and father like he did football, I believe he must be deserving of this honor.  One of the best to ever wear the S&G.
