Miller fulfilling Pryor's promise

08:15 AM ET 10.19 | Timing, as they say, is everything, and Braxton Miller certainly benefitted from it at Ohio State. Terrelle Pryor was on his way out and [Miller] was on his way in, but for that April, they stood together in the spring of 2011 -- the quarterback who had been projected to bring Ohio State everything and the one who now might do it. Seven games into his sophomore season, Miller isn't just at the heart of every Heisman Trophy conversation and leading an undefeated team into a Week 8 home game against Purdue. He could be on his way to fulfilling the quarterback promise that first arrived in Columbus with a do-it-all quarterback in 2008 and was never quite met. Coach Urban Meyer loves Miller, and everyone else seems to as well.

He is fulfilling Pryor's promise. He promised to get as many tattoos as Pryor.

Pryor had a good career with ridiculously high exepctations.

Those types of expectations happen everywhere!!! Example of Landry Jones, a good college QB who has more wins than any QB ever at OU, but, he follows Heupel, Jason White, Bradford...expections are tough in the big leagues boys!!!

Borrowing 0-6's post to quote the article...

It's Miller's "dirty" helmet. What's not to love about that?

Bradford will be, has shown promise. White did not stand a chance because of his knees, would not have lasted two weeks with all his surgeries. Heupel is doing what he should be, he did not have the arm for the league, just the smarts where to put the football!

The way Miller is playing, he should demand a pay raise to make at least as much as Pryor did at O$U.
