He is Urban Meyer after all...they will be throwing the ball all over the yard. You say you watched the spring game, jb? I mean, we get it...you're not a Braxton Miller fan. But the passing game will be light years better than last year, when they ranked 115th out of 120 FBS programs, in large part because they didn't let Braxton throw the ball more than a dozen times a game...and he was a true freshman in a Cro Magnon offense, playing without his only experienced receiver for the first 10 games. All that said, I think they're a 3-loss team.

They went into that game to run entirely their passing O because Meyer has full faith in his running O, so not only were you seeing a QB learning a new system (and he is working his ass off right now to keep learning that system), but you were seeing a system that wasn't functioning in terms of game flow and was instead forcing square pegs into round wholes to make the team better.I wouldn't be shocked by four losses or undefeated with Cal and Cincitucky being the OoC games this year.Just think it is far too early to predict anything with Braxton and where he is going to end up.... and I really wouldn't be shcoked to see three players run for over 500 yards this year.
