As has been the case the last few seasons, all eyes are on quarterback Braxton Miller when anyone thinks Ohio State Buckeyes football, and that fact was highlighted once again on Saturday morning. College football expert Phil Steele released the cover photo for the national edition of his famed preview magazine, and guess who’s right on the front…
Miller joins quarterbacks Trevor Knight from Oklahoma and Heisman winner Jameis Winston of Florida State, as well as Alabama’s dynamic wide receiver, Amari Cooper.
It’s no surprise that Steele decided to feature Miller with some of the best talent in the country, because that’s what he is. The Buckeyes came literally within minutes of making an appearance in the BCS National Championship Game, and Miller and company hope to correct that this season with an appearance in the inaugural College Football Playoff.
This is just another great example of how much publicity the Buckeyes’ quarterback brings to the football program. Just recently, ESPN featured him in a piece about signal-callers from the Big Ten that could potentially throw for over 3,000 yards, something not many believe that he can do.
But who knows, this year could be the first of a lot of things for Miller, hopefully including that Heisman Trophy many have talked about and more importantly, a national championship.
