Earlier this afternoon, 247Sports reported that Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller has been cleared to participate in 100 percent of football activities moving forward, being able to work out with “no limitations.”
This is great news for Miller—and Buckeyes fans—who hasn’t been full-go since mid-August.

Miller initially injured his shoulder in the 2014 Orange Bowl loss to Clemson before re-injuring it during fall camp last offseason, missing the entire 2014 season and the College Football Championship run. And despite backups J.T. Barrett and Cardale Jones (the latter being the QB that helped win the national title, obviously) putting together a 14-1 record last year, a source close to the report says the starting job is “Miller’s to lose.”

According to a recent Public Policy Polling survey of Ohians, 33 percent of Ohio State fans want Cardale Jones to start Week 1, with 23 percent going to Miller and 14 going to Barrett. “Not sure” received 27 percent of the votes, and I’m a little surprised that number wasn’t higher considering the magnitude of this situation.
This is going to be one hell of a competition.
