PLAYERS: Braxton Miller
TEAMS:
An upset was in the air last year in Columbus when Ohio State hosted Cal, but it was to no avail as the Buckeyes defeated Cal 35-28 in the closing minutes of the four quarter. With an injured Braxton Miller and an improved Cal offense, this Saturday’s rematch at Cal’s Memorial Stadium could be the first real test for the 2013 Ohio State Football team. Head Coach Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes dropped another spot in the AP Top 25 (4) despite a 42-7 thrashing of the San Diego State Aztecs. Meyer is “fairly optimistic” that QB Braxton Miller will play despite injuring his left knee in the opening drive against SDSU. Backup QB Kenny Guiton led the Ohio State offense to victory after Braxton Miller’s first quarter knee injury Whether Miller sees the field or not, Buckeye fans can rest easily knowing that backup Kenny Guiton is more than capable of running the Buckeyes clap-to-snap offense. The senior captain completed 19 of 28 passes for 152 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 83 y...

Big Ten Football week 3 previews and predictions

To be honest folks…to this point in the season, it’s been pretty easy. I know I put myself out there for scrutiny with a statement like that, but it has been easy.  With the exception of blowing a Tubberville explosion in week one and overlooking Indiana’s refusal to put a defense on the field week in and week out I have had a pretty good start to 2013.  This week however...

How does Braxton Miller’s injury influence his Heisman chances? OSU coach Meyer said he is a game time decision.

By now everyone has to be wondering if Ohio State Buckeyes QB, Braxton Miller doesn’t play against Cal, if it would influence the voting in the Heisman race. Miller sustained an injury to his knee last week, and it is apparent the Buckeyes can beat Cal with out their starting quarterback. The Buckeyes have one heck of a good back up that can step in and start. We saw how effective...

Ohio State Buckeyes in Good Hands With Kenny Guiton if Braxton Miller Can’t Go

As the Ohio State Buckeyes prepare for their trip across the country to take on the Cal Bears, the biggest question on everyone’s mind is whether or not starting quarterback—and Heisman Trophy candidate—Braxton Miller will play. After suffering a sprained MCL in the team’s rout of San Diego State last week, Miller did not return to action—and the Buckeyes did not miss a...

The Other Quarterback: Kenny Guiton and his smooth jazz keep the Buckeye offense in rhythm

Urban Meyer has made public his thoughts about Braxton Miller’s status for Ohio State’s game against Cal this Saturday night. The Buckeyes’ coach believes that his Heisman candidate quarterback will be on the field in the team’s first road game of the season. But I’m not interested in that today. The most interesting storyline under center – or, more accurately, in the...

Not Much Changes From Miller To Guiton

Ohio State might have to turn to backup quarterback Kenny Guiton this weekend, but that's not as big a deal as it might have been in the past. Guiton provides a luxury to the Buckeyes, a veteran quarterback with a similar skill-set to starter Braxton Miller.

Heisman Forecast: Buckeyes' Miller now facing long odds

From Adrian Peterson in 2006 to Matt Barkley in '12, it has been year after year of failure for preseason Heisman Trophy favorites since USC's Matt Leinart won it in 2005. Could Braxton Miller be the next name to join that list of misses? Urban Meyer said Ohio State's junior quarterback is day-to-day as he suffered a sprained ligament in his left knee during the first...

Ohio State Buckeyes vs Cal Bears Preview: Buckeyes Need to Stop Cal’s Passing Attack

Last year with a healthy Braxton Miller in the lineup, the Cal Bears gave the Ohio State Buckeyes all they could handle, falling just short of upsetting the eventual undefeated team. This season, with Miller’s game status in question for the Buckeyes’ trip to California, Ohio State will need to put the Bears away much earlier if they hope to leave the west coast undefeated. It...

Buckeyes want to play keep-away with run game

No. 4 Ohio State remains dedicated to running the ball, first and foremost. California? Not so much.

Can We Have An Honest Discussion About #5?

Why is a corpse riding shotgun? I asked Iceman to hold off on discussing the Ohio Buckeyes yesterday because I didn’t want this topic to get swept under the rug or glossed over. It deserves its own day. Now, I’ve been accused in the past by thin-skinned ******** of talking about their dirtbag program simply for page views and comments. That’s sort of true, I guess, but if...
