Despite Braxton Miller Injury, Ohio State Football Tickets Up 4%

Despite their poor finish to 2013, Ohio State has proven to be one of the top programs in the nation under head coach Urban Meyer, and have plenty of talent still on the roster.

It also helps that college football is transitioning to a playoff format this year, giving four teams a shot at a national title, instead of just two like it has been in the past.

The belief is even without Miller, Ohio State should have enough to get through what many perceive to be a weak schedule. The only game on the Ohio State football schedule against a ranked opponent is the aforementioned Michigan State Spartans, and the game isn’t until Nov. 8.

That gives redshirt-freshman JT Barrett plenty of time to get acclimated to the offense. And it’s not like Barrett lacks talent. He was a four star recruit, and while inexperienced, the past two Heisman Trophy winners were redshirt-freshman quarterbacks.

Despite the Miller injury, Ohio State is still seen as a competitor for the national title. At the very least they should be a main challenger for the Big Ten crown. So it’s not a shock that ticket prices on the secondary market haven’t been affected negatively since news of the injury was announced.
