Video: Urban Meyer Says He Was "Real Close" To Benching Braxton Miller For Kenny Guiton

Some OSU faithful were calling for it.

Ohio State may have pulled out the victory in last night's slugfest against Northwestern, but Buckeyes quarterback Braxton Miller had clearly seen better days. Miller completed just 15-of-26 pass attempts for 203 yards and one interception - a far cry from his usual output. Miller's performance was so shaky that according to head coach Urban Meyer, the coaching staff debated bringing in backup Kenny Guiton.

In the below video by Buckeye Sports Bulletin, Meyer explains how he was "real close" to putting in Guiton.

Guiton lit up the scoreboard as Miller's replacement earlier this season (Miller had a knee injury), and many OSU fans have been wondering if he's the better man for the job. The situation is worth keeping an eye on.
