Braxton Miller helped lead his Ohio State Buckeyes to a perfect season and now, Miller doesn’t even get a invite to the Heisman Trophy celebration in New York City. This news leaves Buckeyes fans and the entire Buckeyes Nation with a bad taste in their mouths towards the NCAA. Many think that the bowl band imposed on the Ohio State University may have affected Millers status for the Heisman Trophy. Miller and his Buckeyes team went 12-0 in 2012 and the team played solid enough to have Miller considered for the Heisman. It didn’t go Miller’s way and for Buckeyes fans they are disgusted with the fact Miller wasn’t even invited. The Ohio State University paid the price for the NCAA violations and the fans are wondering when the bias is going to come to an end.

Enough is enough. The Ohio State University has already paid the price it is time to move on…..

Having just completed an undefeated season in Urban Meyer’s first year guiding the program, the Ohio State football team will likely enter 2013 as one of the country’s favorites to win the national title. The program's odds of accomplishing that feat will likely be impacted by looming NFL decisions from Bradley Roby and Johnathan Hankins.
Well, the undefeated season for the Ohio State Buckeyes is officially over. All we are left to deal with are articles about what could have been, what should have been and what the NCAA or Ohio State could have done differently to avoid this debacle. Somewhere along the line you will find articles tying all of those pieces together in an effort to claim to know what would have been...
