Man was I wrong about Braxton. I knew he was good but he single handedly beat a very good defense tonight. Without him, OSU has a hard time moving the ball, let alone scoring. Despite the officiating and McGloin's pick six, we lost because Miller was better than our front 7. He may be a terrible QB but he's an amazing football player.

He is the difference...our offense may put up 10-14 points tonight without him...
I believe my brother got banned last week on here for making his opinion that your front 7 hasn't had to try to chase down a guy like Miller yet this year....lol...
Literally. Without him, OSU is a mediocre Big 10 team.

I don't know about mediocre, definitely a much different team...we would be more "traditional" in the sense that the rushing would have to come from the RB's more, but would also be a better passing team, thus more balance to keep opposing defenses from loading the box...but I see your point...
I am a bit surprised that they did rush for as many yards as they did with PSU having 7-8 in the box all night though...But Braxton is tough to defend..you can have him contained but he still gets 4-5 yards...
Same could be said for just about any team though....look at Michigan tonight without DRob...
Look at MSU without Cousins at QB, etc....
In college football you get a "difference maker" once every 4-5 years, and without that player you'd be in trouble that year....Braxton is definitely not someone we could replace what he does, we'd have to do things differently for sure...
