There’s nothing like a little offseason rivalry ignition such as Braxton Miller taking direct jabs at the Michigan Wolverines‘ spring game attendance. The Ohio State Buckeyes‘ quarterback took to Twitter to poke fun at the attendance — or apparent lack thereof — at Michigan’s annual spring game compared to Ohio State’s.
Both teams happen to be two of the best in the Big Ten and national contenders on a year-to-year basis. Also, they are each other’s biggest rival and most hated team.
Check out this tweet that Miller sent out to his 128,000 followers on Twitter:

Yes, just a picture and no words.
Miller, a senior quarterback for the Buckeyes is considered an early Heisman Trophy contender and many see him leading Ohio State back to the conference’s title game.
In a year where Miller must prove he has what it takes to play at the next level, he sure got it off to a solid start by angering one of the teams that threaten Ohio State’s chances at a conference title the most. It seems a bit childish he would compare the two teams by virtue of spring game attendance, but sometimes that is all Ohio State has to brag about.
After their season ended on a sour note a year ago — two straight losses after winning 24 straight under Urban Meyer — you would think Miller has more important things to work on than his Twitter game.
Don’t worry, Ohio State, you always have that perfect record through two seasons that resulted in no conference titles and no bowl wins to fall back on. Oh yeah, and one sad, pizza-eating coach.

Pretty impressive, right?
