08:19 AM ET 09.21 | Et tu, Urban? Braxton Miller is just a sophomore, but he's already being compared favorably to Urban Meyer's best collegiate player. The Ohio State coach said Miller, his current quarterback, actually has "more talent" than Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow, who won the Heisman Trophy under Meyer at Florida. Tebow won two national titles with the Gators and was a Heisman finalist three times. "Very similar guys," Meyer said on his 97.1 The Fan call-in radio show. "They're both competitive human beings. They're both very talented people. Braxton has more talent. Tim is probably more of a grinder." Miller has 988 combined rushing and passing yards with 12 touchdowns through three games this year.

Two different coaching styles:

Saban - You guys suck. Who cares if your ranked #1. You look like a monkey ****** a football out there! You better play hard this weekend or I'm cutting all of you from the team!

Meyer - Wow! It's only mid-September and and I'm annointing you the best QB in the nation. The Heisman is yours! Who cares that we haven't played any conference games!

He said "talent". "Accomplishments" are of course aopther matter which are yet to be determined. But whatever happens in that regard it in no way discounts, much less nullifies Meyer's evaluation of the guy's ability.

Miller is more talented than Tebow, a lot of QBs are more talented. What made Tebow great is his work ethic and leadership. No body works harder.

Tebow's arms aren't covered with uglyazz tatoos. Just sayin ....
