Ohio State senior quarterback Braxton Miller caused something of an uproar last month when he put a photo of himself on his Instagram account with Advocare products.
The photo was deemed to be a promotion of a commercial product. According to the school, the athletics department reported the photo the NCAA. It was determined that the photo was a "minor violation," but Miller was reinstated to the team without an affect on his eligibility.
According to Tim May of the Columbus Dispatch, Miller had to take an education session to understand the rule.
Ohio State said the matter is now closed.To read more or comment...

Ohio State may have a quarterback quandry with Cardale Jones, J.T. Barrett and Braxton Miller, but head coach Urban Meyer isn't jumping to name the starter.
Following the Buckeyes' second spring practice, Meyer said that a starter will be picked at some point, but "we're not even focused on that."
Meyer stressed he wants to see both Barrett and Miller continue to get healthy and for Jones to continue to improve. MIller is returning from a knee injury he sustained last August. Barrett was lost for the season with an ankle injury in November. Jones started the final three games of the season, including Ohio State's win over Oregon in the national title game.To read more or comment...
It should come as no surprise, but Ohio State's D'Angelo Russell was selected by coaches and media as the best freshman in the Big Ten.
Russell led the Big Ten in scoring this season, averaging 20.3 points per game in conference games. He's the first freshman since Indiana's Eric Gordon in 2007-08 to do so. Russell also had the most made three pointers in conference play this season with 49.
He is the fourth freshman under Buckeyes coach Thad Matta to win the award, joining Jared Sullinger (2011), William Buford (2009) and Greg Oden (2007).To read more or comment...

March 10 - Spring practices begin
When Ohio State starts spring practices, we may get some indication about what the team might be doing at quarterback. Will it be Braxton Miller? JT Barrett? Cardale Jones? Ohio State has arguably the most talented quarterback group in the nation, but also the biggest question mark. Expect the quarterback situation to be the overriding storyline of OSU's spring practices.To read more or comment...
