Braxton Miller remains ‘right on schedule’ for Buckeyes’ opener

Braxton Miller

Last weekend, Urban Meyer was quoted as saying Braxton Miller was “right on schedule” in his recovery from offseason shoulder surgery.

A week later?  The status quo remains, which is a (potentially) very good thing for Buckeye fans.

The senior quarterback played during OSU’s scrimmage Saturday, although his pass attempts were limited.  Limiting Miller’s pass attempts has been a running theme throughout the first couple of weeks of summer camp, so that facet of the report shouldn’t trigger any type of alarm.

When asked about Miller’s availability for the season opener against Navy two weeks from today, Meyer said, “[f]rom what they tell me, he’s still right on schedule.”

I trust that’s he’ll be ready,” Meyer added.

Miller. one of the preseason Heisman favorites, underwent surgery on his right (throwing) shoulder in late February.  He was extremely limited during spring practice, and the football program has erred on the side of caution ever since.

In other OSU quarterbacking news, Meyer indicated that, as has been intimated of late, redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett has moved ahead of redshirt sophomore Cardale Jones in the chase to be Miller’s backup.  Barrett’s lead, though, is slight at the moment over Jones, who the school stated “took the vast majority of snaps at the position this spring with Braxton Miller out with a shoulder injury.”

    It doesn’t matter if Braxton Miller is healthy or not. For some unknown reason (perhaps market share) the sports writing world continues its love affair with THE Ohio State University. Sports Illustrated, this week, is out of its mind stating in its college football preview that Ohio State’s schedule will be well received by the selection committee. Are you kidding me?? Do writers get a stipend from the Buckeyes? Ohio State will play this year only one team, Michigan State, currently in the Top 25. Compare that with Alabama, UCLA, Oregon, South Carolina, etc. that play 3, 4 or more games in and out of conference with Top 10 and Top 25 teams. Ohio State plays a Mid-American conference schedule. Urban Myer and Braxton Miller don’t need to wake up until November when they play Michigan State, then again the following week, wake Myer up again so that he can go shopping at the Mall of America to go Christmas shopping when they play Minnesota. Ohio State, if they won all their games, should never get into the playoffs. As they say in Texas, Ohio State, all hat and no cattle. There is no substance in their schedule or their conference period.

    A better mentally prepared Braxton surrounded by a plethora of quick talent is going to be fun to watch!!! The defensive backfield will be much improved and the defensive line is going to be scary. Let the season begin!

    Lol totally agree oldforester. Their schedule is a joke every year. The last time they played anyone good in the regular season slapped them like the little bitches they are when Petey Carroll blew out the vest in the Coliseum. And then with a freshman QB Matt Barkeley beat them at their place. That’s why they never schedule anyone good because they lose.

    All they care about his money not playing a good schedule. When they schedule good teams they lose and it costs them millions of dollars.

    Yep Suckeye State is on their media campaign with ESPN’s commercial showing Oscar Meyer, aka Urban Liar, in his office.

    Totally agree on Theee Corrupt State University paying for votes and the media. This am on one of the college preview shows on ESPN, they had this overrated or underrated segment and this moron goes Suckeye State is underrated lmao. What a joke. More like overrated at 6. Yeah underrated teams lose all the time when they actually are forced to play good teams.

    It it going to be awesome watching you whine like a little bitch about OSU all season! What’s the matter little boy – did somebody from OSU take your lollipop and make you cry?

    Hey there browneyedcrazyman! It’s funny you comment on tOSU football, yet your a browns fan. They the the third best football team in ohio behind tOSU and the Bunghals. Good luck with that 80 games under .500. Maybe Johnny can put a dent in that, but I seriously doubt it. Browns suck!

  8. brownsmakemecrazy says: Aug 16, 2014 7:37 PM

    Play a real schedule. Ooooo that’s right you are afraid to schedule real teams because every time u do u get your asses kicked. How’d that ass kicking the Trojans laid on you in the Coliseum. Lmao.

    Good luck against Sparty lmao. The only 2 teams u played all year u lost. Lmao.

    Nice bowl record Suckeyes. You clowns don’t even have a winning bowl record since 1920 lol.

    You should’ve died at birth.

  11. jrodwilson says: Aug 16, 2014 8:05 PM

    Sounds like your a little insecure about who you are so you deflect that by going after someone else. You are a browns fan. You are not the king sh!t of the turd pile. You are the fly eating it. Jaguars used to be the worst team in the nfl, but they drafted Bortles. Now that makes the browns the worst. Good luck with Johnny Beiber.

  12. brownsmakemecrazy says: Aug 16, 2014 9:43 PM

    I know the Browns suck. You morons don’t even know Suckeye State sucks. Looks like you are the morons. Lol. Here’s a $1 go buy a clue Suckeye fans.

    Here’s a $1 go buy a clowns ticket.

    Attention all who agree that the brownsmakemecrazy is an ignorant Troll!
    I suspected that he is not a true Browns “fan” so I checked his postings on Pro Football Talk. He trashes the Browns almost as much as tOSU. He even had the arrogance to suggest that if the Browns management paid attention to how he thinks the team should be run the Browns would be winners.
    Unbelievable that a Troll feels he knows more than professional coaches!!!!

    You don’t have to be a coach to understand that Ohio State’s schedule has 1 (that is a capital ONE) team in the top 25. No reasonable judge will vote them into a playoff if they win all their games because they are playing against a Mid American Conference schedule. It is what it is. OSU has no one on their schedule, other than the Spartans, to test them. Basically it is the varsity vs the freshman for Ohio State. Enjoy your wins, they will be meaningless. Top tier teams play top tier teams. You can fill your shoe with BS, but don’t pretend to carry that shxt into a national arena where we don’t buy your crap. Play someone & win or shut up!!!

    Lol yeah Browns management deserves so much praise for losing 10+ games in 10 out of last 11 seasons. And a head coach who would rather start a journeyman undrafted scrub over Johnny manziel. Stupid is as stupid does for you Brutusbuckeye2011.

    It’s amazing how dumb you are Brutusbuckeye2011 and all of you Thugeye State fans.

    Yeah I suppose you would rather have Phil Taylor instead of Julio Jones. I suppose you would rather have Leon McFadden instead of Tyrann Matheiu. I suppose you would rather have Terrance West instead of Jeremy Hill. Yeah they don’t need Sammy Watkins who dominated you scrubs last year.

    yeah and Brian Hoyer over Johnny. Lmao. All those players above I wanted Browns to take before the draft moron.

    wow you Suckeye State fans are a bunch of hayseeds. Ignorance must be bliss in your world.

    All I know is, it is hilarious when people say “suckeyes” lololoolol it is so clever and original.

    This could be the year the Buckeyes shut the critics up. Gotta get that inexperienced o-line up to speed and that pass-d turned around. Everything else is in place for a great season.

    Go Bucks!
