If not for his injury, where would Braxton Miller be right now?

Braxton Miller told the Columbus Dispatch recently that he wasn’t conceding the Heisman Trophy despite missing almost three full games so far this season.

Of course, Miller doesn’t have a real shot to win it and he’s just saying the things he is supposed to say, but I was curious to see what his candidacy might look like if we added Kenny Guiton’s stats while Miller was out to Miller’s actual numbers.

The two quarterbacks combined have thrown for 1,070 yards with 19 touchdowns and three interceptions. They’ve rushed for a combined 359 yards and one score.

Projected out to a whole season, that’d give Miller 2,782 passing yards and 49 touchdown passes, with 933 rushing yards and three scores.

No wonder he was the Heisman front runner. Those numbers would win in a heart beat.

Of course, this all supposes that Miller would’ve thrown six touchdown passes against Florida A&M and four against California. Who knows, maybe he would’ve thrown more…
