07:42 AM ET 12.13 | Should he stay or should he go? [If Braxton Miller] decides to return to Ohio State for his senior season -- he could become the first three-time Silver Football winner. NFL scouts who believe Miller should return for his senior season will use that [Big Ten championship game] passing performance as proof, even though he threw several catchable balls against Michigan State that weren't hauled in. One scout called Miller "tough as hell, and not far from where Donovan McNabb was in college. Braxton made a big jump from a season ago; his footwork is better." ... Miller hopes to light up the South Florida sky Jan. 3 when the Buckeyes take on Clemson in the Orange Bowl. He will consult the NFL's draft advisory board long before the Jan. 15 deadline. "It's tough; I just don't know," Miller said.

He needs to stay. He's not ready for the NFL. And he is almost certainly not going in the first round. Might as well wait it out another year.

^^^^Yep

He needs to stay and improve and if he do's ...........it will vault him into the top 3 of the draft in 2015 and MAYBE a NC game next yr.

Clemson,,, why Clemson!? They should've set em up with someone more exciting like Mizzou or Baylor or Bama or Oregon. Clemson booooo... hisssss....

Stay in college.

December 13, 2013  08:55 AM ET

Being compared to Dononan McNabb should be reason enough to stay and improve.

Stay in college, young man. Enjoy the carefree lifestyle, parties, tax-free cash and free tatoos for as long as you can.

There will be plenty of tiime to be an adult....why rush it?

No, he'll get at least 3 years, maybe 4.

Fan base was split on this hire. Pretty strong belief among many that we needed a system guy that could get us a scheme advantage. We have $$ and facilities to be competitive in the SEC, but just no in-state recruits. Many (myself included) wanted a system guy like Briles, Malzahn, Gundy.....knowing we couldn't recruit with Gump and LUS. This is NOT what we got in Beilma.

Now, the success of Malzahn has rubbed salt in the wound. Having a top 10 salary structure and no results will cause a rift soon. Coach B and staff have to put toghether a couple of good classes and be much better in yr 3, or things could get ugly fast.

Mornin' WPS. The problem is Braxton is already a dad with one child and his significant other with another in the oven. He now has mouths to feed. I'm guessing his performance in the Orange Bowl will be a determining actor as to whether he stays at tOSU or declares for the NFL draft.

December 13, 2013  10:16 AM ET

draft will be QB heavy, but then again we won't see them next year unless we make the B1G CG and we seem to keep crapping that bed...

Good morning, Harley.....thx for the info. Sounds like he's enjoyed the free cash, free tatoos and free parties enough already! :-)

Good luck, young man

Having two children get your NFL cash and then come back and get your degree.

It's rumored that he is going to go to see if he is on the short-list so that he will be invited to talk to the people at Texas to see if he will go to pick up the phone to call them to discuss the rumor that he will be going to Michigan
