Urban Meyer wants Braxton Miller to hang out with Tim Tebow

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer has said he thinks his current quarterback, Braxton Miller, has more talent than his old quarterback, Tim Tebow, which is quite the compliment considering Tebow won two national championships and a Heisman Trophy while at Florida.

However, just because Miller has more talent doesn't mean Meyer doesn't think there are still a few things Tebow could teach him about being a quarterback. Doug Lesmerises of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer talked to both Tebow and Meyer about Miller, and Urban would like to see his two quarterbacks get together this offseason.

“It's so hard when they're busy during the season," Meyer said. "And Braxton is still figuring out how things work. But I would love for those guys to get face-to-face, even train a little bit together, work out together. Tim is so busy, but I'm going to push for that to happen real hard.”

“Tim's greatest strength is something Braxton needs to work on. Tim is the ultimate competitor, the ultimate grinder. There is no harder-working guy. He's just nonstop. His whole life was nothing but be in the office, study football, go out and practice. And that's it. And Braxton is getting better. But to be a Heisman-type player, to be a first-round draft pick, especially at that position, the amount of time you need to commit to your trade is off the charts.”

Just as long as Tebow doesn't teach Miller anything about throwing mechanics, I imagine the meeting would work out well for Ohio State.
