Numerous sportswriters have analyzed and praised former Ohio State starting quarterback Braxton Miller’s move to H-Back and I can’t blame them. We have never seen a three-year starting signal-caller and Heisman Trophy candidate move to...

The first week of every college football season always generates overreaction on both sides of the talking point. If a team lost by a bigger margin than expected or struggled, it’s easy to say that team is worse than anticipated. But if...
