There's nothing better than MILLER TIME!! Classy guy; solid player. Loved watching him play at Utah.

I'm a fan. He's always been one of those undervalued guys who it seems coaches love for consistency, skill and a steady, low-maintenance demeanor. And yet, he's bounced from team to team to team. Kind of a shame, though he's made enough money for him and his children and his children's childre to live comfortably for their lifetimes, so I don't feel too bad for him.

It just seems like from a competitive or "legacy" standpoint, you'd always kind of feel like an afterthought if you were constantly getting traded or allowed to walk away. I wonder how many teams that watched him leave and installed someone with more "upside" in his place eventually regretted it.

As a lifelong BYU fan and Utah resident, I have to say he's represented the state well. Hopefully he's satisfied with what he's done.
