The Michigan Wolverines and the Ohio State Buckeyes have one of the more intense rivalries in all of college sports. However, there are certain instances where you have to put the intensity to the side when something bad happens, such as the Buckeyes losing one of the better players in all of college football recently, as QB Braxton Miller was ruled out for the season following another shoulder injury.
Well Michigan head coach Brady Hoke recently did put the rivalry to the side when he expressed just how badly he feels for the Heisman hopeful.
“I feel terrible for Braxton Miller and his family,” Hoke said. “He’s been a class act any time I’ve been around him.
“You never want a kid to get hurt.”
Again, there is a time for the rivalry to be off the charts intense, and then there are times to show some class, and that’s exactly what Hoke did here in acknowledging his feelings.
Miller was coming back from offseason shoulder surgery, and all seemed well just two weeks away from the regular season getting underway. But on Monday night, a freak hit knocked Miller out of practice and it was announced on Tuesday that he was indeed done for the year.
