Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller did not play in the Buckeyes spring game on Saturday, but the two-time Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year still found a way to make headlines over the weekend with some Michigan-related smack talk.

Miller took screen shots of the official attendance announcement from both Ohio State and Michigan's spring game. The Wolverines drew just over 15,000 for its spring game on April 5 while the Buckeyes announced a crowd of more than 61,000 on Saturday.

Miller did not add any comment. He let the picture speak 140 characters.

Spring game attendance has become an interesting metric to track. Today's spring game varies from a intrasquad scrimmage to a controlled practice or, at places like Texas A&M and Pittsburgh, there is no "spring game" at all for 2014.

The return of Braxton Miller and others have brought high expectations for the Buckeyes in 2014, but Ohio State still falls behind Penn State in 2014 spring game attendance. In Happy Valley, the James Franklin era kicked off in front of "an estimated 72,000," per the school.
