Miller has unfinished business to take care of.
Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller had a season most other signal callers would gladly take.
However, given his enormously high preseason expectations—whether they were fair or not—the Huber Heights, Ohio, native’s 2013 campaign was slightly disappointing.
After beginning the season as a Heisman Trophy favorite, Miller didn’t even earn an invite to the New York City ceremony. On top of that, he didn’t exactly show up during the Buckeyes most important games—losses in the Big Ten title game and the Orange Bowl.
Still, it’s hard not to be impressed by Miller’s career year. In 12 games, he threw for 2,094 yards, 24 touchdowns and seven interceptions on 63.5 percent passing while adding another 1,068 yards and 12 scores on 171 carries.
By returning for his senior season, Miller practically admitted that there was unfinished business to take care of.
If he can lead Ohio State to a national title—undefeated regular season or not—and make a run at the Heisman, it would be hard to argue that Miller didn’t accomplish everything he possibly could at the collegiate level.
