I'm comparing OSU #10 to OSU #5. Miller hasn't gone pro so there's no comparison there. Furthermore, you'd be hard press convincing me that just because the receivers you mentioned are still in the NFL that they were a fraction of the player (or as important to OSU's success) as Troy was. You take away #10 from those OSU teams and not one of them produces half of what they produced.
1. We don't have a big enough sample size to judge KG
2. B. Miller has a rocket arm compared to KG and looks better throwing the ball
3. B. Miller needs to work on his accuracy, but we don't know for a fact KG is more accurate (see number 1)

Smith was a kick returner at the same point in his career. It's scary to think how dangerous Braxton could be if he stays 4 years.
How many receivers is Braxton throwing to that can hold a candle to gonzo, ginn, robiskie, hartline? He doesn't have near the talent surrounding him. That being said brax has long way to go but that isn't shocking he is still a sophomore.
if troy made his receivers look good then why are they all in the nfl and he isn't?
Hail Hail to MeatChicken the Cesspool of the World!
Braxton Miller said the biggest thing he needs to improve in his passing game is his footwork.
Braxton Miller said he needed to get his footwork right in the second half against Penn State.
Who said it wasn't his footwork?
Brax is infinitely more talented than Troy and is just learning how to be a true quarterback. His decision making and inability to go through his progressions is what is causing his problems in his throwing motion. He is learning and he will learn as he gets more experience. Against Penn State his real personality was starting to show and if he continues coming out of his shell then he will make Troy proud.
Troy was all about making everyone around him better and, yes, he had talent surrounding him. But he was the glue that made it all work.
Braxton is relying on his talent too much. He is just reacting to what he sees and runs because he can.
In the passing game he is telegraphing his thoughts and throwing to his first read and is predictable. Wait until the game slows down and he understands the nuances of the position.
Man that will be a sight to see.

Im all for Brax but did we forget that Troy Smith WON a Heisman trophy? Brax isnt even in the same stratosphere yet. No sophomore qb should be mentioned with Troy just yet.
