PENN STATE DE — ‘BRAXTON BEST QB I’VE FACED’: JT. Cardale. Braxton. Who was the toughest to stop? According to Nittany Lions defensive end Evan Schwan, who lined up against them all, Braxton was the best of the bunch: “The best quarterback? Playing last year, Cardale [Jones] at Ohio State was impressive. The best I’ve ever played against, I’d say it was Braxton [Miller] a few years ago when he was solid at the quarterback position…I just thought he made so many plays with his feet whenever his reads weren’t there throwing the ball…He just controlled Ohio State’s offense, and with the success they had, I feel like he was the leader behind it all on the offensive side but also in general.” Corey Masisak with more. FLASHBACK: 2012 — Braxton Miller impossibly jukes his way to end zone to give Buckeyes 21-10 lead versus Penn State.
URBAN ON TRIBE MAKING WORLD SERIES: “There are two types of people in this world — those from Cleveland and those that wish they were.”
