The Ohio State Football community was shocked to hear the news on Tuesday that senior quarterback Braxton Miller would be out for the entirety of the 2014 college football season. Probably the most shocked, though, were the members of the Buckeyes football team, a team that is heavily favored to make a run at the national championship.
However, while disappointed, there is little time for mourning, with this team having less than two weeks until the opener. And tight ened Jeff Heuerman believes that this team can come back and rally around backup J.T. Barrett, despite his inexperience.
“We will bounce back. It’s not the end of the world. You’re not going to forfeit any games. You’re not going to just quit. We have been through adversity before. We will get through it.”
He then went on to explain a little more about this offense this season.
“We probably have three, four or five more playmakers than we’ve had in the past. We will rely on some of them to make plays. We will have to account for some of the things we won’t have with Braxton out there. He is probably one of the most explosive players to ever play this game. But we have the players and coaching staff to where we can do that.”
