COLUMBUS, Ohio - There was a great debate among Ohio State fans if the Buckeyes should have played quarterback Braxton Miller this season or not. Despite the team going a pedestrian 6-6 this season Miller was recognized as being named the Thompson-Randle El Freshman of the year by the Big Ten conference on Wednesday.
Miller will be given his award on Friday in Indianapolis (Ind.) as part of the Big Ten Championship game festivities.
"I want to thank the Big Ten Conference and the gentlemen this award is named after - Mr. Darrell Thompson and Mr. Antwaan Randle El," said Miller. "It is an honor to win this award in their names." Ohio State has had a total of seven winners of the Freshman of the Year award in the 25 year run of the honor.
