After months and months of transfer rumors following the emergence of two of his backup quarterbacks, Braxton Miller will return to Ohio State. Where the Buckeyes are the clear winners there, even if Urban Meyer has the craziest quarterback race in history to deal with, a number of top programs could have used a talent like Miller under center.

LSU head coach Les Miles was not coy when asked on Monday if he would have been interested in the Buckeye star.

Most coaches probably wouldn’t have commented, but this is why we love Miles. We’re not sure Brandon Harris is quite as thrilled, but at the end of the day, he’s in Baton Rouge and Miller is not.
