Urban Meyer has high hopes for freshman quarterback Braxton Miller. The Buckeyes signal-caller has looked great through the early part of the season and gotten it done with both his legs and arm.

Miller has led Ohio State to wins in its first three games and has 988 total yards and 12 total touchdowns. Is he the most talented quarterback Meyer has ever coached?

Of course not. This is the same Meyer who rode Tim Tebow to two BCS National Championships at Florida. He wouldn’t dare give Miller the edge over Tebow in any category, right?

“Very similar guys,” Meyer said Thursday when comparing Tebow and Miller,according to Fear the Hat. “They’re both competitive human beings. They’re both very talented people. Braxton has more talent. Tim is probably more of a grinder.”

Ya’ll don’t say that. Even if it’s true, ya’ll still don’t say that. As Chris Huston of CBSSports.com mentioned, Tebow had 1,027 total yards and 13 touchdowns through his first three games in 2007 — the year he won the Heisman Trophy. Miller’s numbers are quite similar, so it will be interesting to see how the remainder of the season turns out.

In reality, Meyer is just trying to give his quarterback confidence and is in no way trying to insult his favorite player of all time. Tebow has some freak athleticism, but it’s possible Miller could be a little more talented. Does that make them equals? Hardly, and Meyer is well aware of that. That doesn’t mean his comments won’t irritate Tebowmaniacs like this one.
