Ohio State Football: Braxton Miller not under any pressure in 2014?


Braxton Miller has accomplished so much in his Ohio State career that he will forever be remembered as one of the greatest players to ever come through Columbus. However, despite that, it would be a little disappointing to see Miller leave the Buckeyes without having won a national championship.

With that, you would think that Miller would be one of the players in the Big Ten that’s under the most pressure of anyone, however in a recent poll conducted by ESPN’s Big Ten blog, that wasn’t the case.

Brian Bennett, when asked by a fan why Miller isn’t under the most pressure, gave this detailed explanation.

It’s true that Miller’s legacy will be affected by what he and his team accomplish this season. He’s had a fantastic career, but all he has to show for it in terms of team success so far are two division titles and no postseason wins (with probation playing an obvious factor in 2012). Still, Miller is the two-time Big Ten offensive player of the year and could end up breaking all kinds of Ohio State records. I doubt many people would blame him if the Buckeyes finished short of their goals this year. It’s much more likely that Ohio State’s success or failure will ride on its defense, or possibly even its revamped offensive line, than on Miller in 2014.

What do you think? Is Braxton under the most pressure of anyone in the conference this season? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

    There’s pressure but not much win or lose his list of achievements speak for themselves.
