I hope the stadium shakes when his name is announced for Senior Day. What this kid has done for OSU can not be overstated.

#1 in our hearts # 5 in our minds.. Tho he looks fresh in number 1

I disagree  -- wear the suit during warm-ups.   Then come out unnoticed in #5

I never got why he switched numbers. 

HS

Because he only has 1 shot/last go round before its over.

HS

So he should start wearing # 5 today b/c 5 more games to go for him as a Buckeye!

I like the #1 , the WR Miller, still has more to show us.          #5 was the Qb Miller, he already gave us so much. 

But Idk what number he wears as long as he is on the field .

Heck yes. And take the first snap behind center.

HS

I thought for sure Meyer was going to have Miller take the first snap at qb in the VT game, to honor Miller. I would say 110% agree with you here, but I no longer know what exactly 110% means after recruiting

#5 for sure. Love to see it at least 1 more time.

HS

Yes, and start him at QB! NOT just a WR in the wildcat. Let him throw it and get ttun second guessing what's in store for them next week.

HS

Why not both 1 and 5....oh wait, Zeke's got that.

But really, there is no question. #5 for sure.

Part of me is hoping that they'll pull out the championship unis again, but that's probably wishful thinking...

I say go back to #5 just one more time at home. I'll be wearing my #5 jersey tomorrow, because there is no one on this team that represents selfless team play, through good times and bad, like B-Miller! He'll always have a home in C-Bus.

Bruh. Pick a number and stick with it.

I've never said I 'hate' anyone because that would imply I had any emotion for them whatsoever.

I am prepared for the DVs, but I think he should stay at #1.

#5 is QB Braxton, he is now #1 as WR/Wildcat/NFL Braxton.

#5 for the number of games they have left. He'll be #4 against TTUN, and #3 in Indy.

Love to see #5 one more time. Forgot how good he was at making something out of nothing. Hope to see some big numbers from him tomorrow last time he'll ever get to show case his talent at the shoe should be a hell of a show.

HS
AZ Buckeye13's picture

I think that Braxton should wear #5 for Senior Day. The vast majority of his career highlights have been as a Buckeye while wearing #5. After this game he should return to wearing #1.

HS
HolyBuckeye9's picture

I can't wait to hear the roar Braxton gets. Very possible he gets the loudest ovation ever. Kid definitely deserves it.

HS
osubucki6's picture

Anyone else think this could be more symbolic like maybe he's playing QB? Or is it just my crazy hopes and dreams?

HS
echurches13's picture

Yes,Wear #5!  It seems like yesterday that you threw the game winning TD late in the 4th quarter against Russell Wilson and the Badgers. 

go bucks!

HS

If you would've told me he'd be playing as a RS Senior after that game, I would've laughed harder than I do whenever I see someone say TUN will beat us. 

HS

I sincerely hope this guy puts on a performance for the ages to send him off in the right way. Go to him early and often. He deserves it.

HS
ELJTSA76's picture

No. It is in the past. Look toward the future Braxton. You've come a long way in your journey, but you don't have to play to the fans and media with such cliche and melodrama to receive their affection. Just go play, and we will cheer you on one last time. 

HS

Absolutely...#5 please

HS
bucksfan92's picture

Whatever number he wears, he is guaranteed to get the loudest roar in the stadium tomorrow - and maybe the loudest ever all time.  I just hope he has the game of his life tomorrow and leaves us all amazed like he has done so many times before.  And then does one better next week.  And the week after that.  And in 2 more playoff games.

HS
BuckeyeRy4's picture

Wear whatever number you want, Braxton, so long as the Sparty defenders can see it getting smaller and smaller as you head toward the end zone. You've earned it.

Go for it Braxton if that's what you think is best...you'll have 100% of Buckeye Nation behind you. You have given way more to us fans than we could ever have dreamed. Thanks for all the years of exciting football!!!

Love Braxton.  Don't care which #.  Just want him to get in the end zone early & often. 

HS
JohnnyKozmo's picture

I'm really hoping the offense hasn't shown everything to date. There are so many plays that haven't been used this year at all. Bubble screens, tunnel screens, TE throwbacks, RB wheel routes, etc. Braxton on a tunnel screen seems too easy.

B Miller just kill it tomorrow.  I'm hoping for a magical day.  Bittersweet, these senior days. One of the best Buckeyes ever, I'll be tearing up a little, not gonna lie.

1 is a jinx. Go 5 and stay alive in the draft projection.

He can wear whatever he wants.

If he dons 5, then count me as the first vote to retire it.

HS
BuckInNashville's picture

I don't care what number is on his back.  The number I want to see is touches. How is this guy not getting ten touches a game and >100 yds total offense ?

Let the down votes  rain down on me for being pissed off that we can't figure out how to get the ball in the H back's hands.

Yes I remember that we're 10-0. But It just baffles me.

HS
RUNTOWIN's picture

Probably bc he doesn't execute. He swings for the fence on every touch and ends up putting the O behind the sticks when they try to involve him in the run game. He's been purely feast or famine, hit or miss, bang or bust...

HS
RickyJ's picture

XBrax is, without question the most electrifying player in college football.  Like yourself, I am sick and tired of watching him be hemmed in by the entire opposing defense and then stacked.  It doesn't look like anybody is even trying to throw a damned block.  I don't understand it at all unless this is by some sort of deliberate attempt by Meyer to lull opposing teams down the wrong path.  The lack of a deep ball threat receiver is again rearing its ugly head on the non effectiveness of XBrax running the ball.  But you have to believe and hope that a coach like Meyer has got something in the works for this kid. 

HS

If we had personnel continuity behind center and at the wideout positions, I'd be critical, but, as we all know, we haven't.  My hope is that all the staff has learned about these guys in this season's games--Miller included--will come together now in great unstoppable force for the remaining games.  Now's the time.

I love that, typically, when ohio state develops these living legends to the program, they are also proud sons of ohio.

Loved how the guy stuck in there to complete his last season.  Great character, epitomizes what college athletics was and still should be about.  He will be dotting the I soon, no doubt. 

I'd vote him for the heisman if it were up to me.

My opinion is meaningless.

30 years from now, that Senior Day photo is probably going to be hanging on the wall in Braxton's den.  The big question is...which number does Braxton want to be wearing in that photo?
