"I would have no problem putting Braxton Miller on my Heisman ballot," said Mark Snyder from the Detroit Free Press. "He still plays the games, still has to perform at the level worthy of the award and he had nothing to do with the reason the Buckeyes are sanctioned."
"You could tell at a young age he was going to be a rock star. He just had it, he gets it," Snyder said. "You knew he was going to be a good football coach. He can relate to kids, especially today's kids. ... The kids have got to be able to trust you, and I think we exceled this year because of that."
