Ex-Michigan player compares current Ohio St. QB to Tim Tebow, and not in a good way.

 Brady Hoke's first-year success as Michigan head football coach has certainly reignited the passions of Wolverine supporters. That includes those of former Michigan players as well. Take for example former Michigan offensive lineman  Steve Everitt, who is already laying the smackdown on UM's eternal rival, Ohio State. Everitt decided to take a shot at current Buckeye quarterback Braxton Miller, invoking the name of another certain QB that once played under first-year Ohio St. HC Urban Meyer.

"I'm not trying to get bulletin board information, but I guess I'm past that point," former Michigan football offensive lineman Steve Everitt said Friday during WTKA's "Mott Takeover" event. "They're stuck with that quarterback (sophomore Braxton Miller) for the next two or three years, that's fine with me. He throws worse than (Tim) Tebow.

"I see us torturing them for the next three years."

Overconfident? Yes. Cocky? Of course. Delusional? Probably. Will it give Miller the impetus to transform himself into something akin to the college football (as opposed to the pro model) Tebow? Probably not. But does mean that there's something in the air in Ann Arbor that was missing during the Rick Rodriguez years.
