Well, the quarterback quandary might have gotten easier for Urban Meyer. Senior QB Braxton Miller posted on his Instagram account a photo of himself with a teammate. That is not an issue with the N.C.A.A.. What is the issue however, is the prominent display of AdvoCare products displayed between the two men.

This could have been written up as a minor issue except Miller is "on a mission", and included his email address. This will definitely be a sticky wicket for the O.S.U. compliance team. Don't forget that the Buckeyes will be a little more vigilant after the Jim Tressel era. It will be interesting on how the Buckeyes react. Urban Meyer has already hinted that this will be a difficult choice on who will be the Buckeyes starting QB at Lane Stadium in the opener.
Urban Meyer admits "it’s starting to eat away at me a little bit" that he’s going to have to bench two of the Buckeyes’ three quarterbacks.— Ben Axelrod (@BenAxelrod) March 24, 2015
The Ohio State administration has acted quickly,already investigating the now infamous deleted Instagram posting.

It would be foolish for Braxton Miller to go rogue as a senior leader of the defending national champion. It would be foolish for Braxton Miller to tarnish his reputation only a year before the N.F.L. draft. One doesn't have to look far to learn from the Buckeye's past. When's the last time you heard the name Maurice Clarett?
