Arms Race

Yesterday, “Fear the Hat” compared the stats of Ohio State linebacker Ryan Shazier to those of Notre Dame’s Manti Te’o.

Today we continue our campaign to see where the Buckeyes fall nationally by comparing OSU’s Braxton Miller to two other high-profile quarterbacks: Kansas State’s Collin Klein and West Virginia’s Geno Smith.

Again, we’ll note that Miller and the Buckeyes are ranked 55th in strength of schedule. Kansas State checks in 33rd and West Virginia 29th according to Jeff Sagarin.
