Ben Roethlisberger might be the greatest player to ever play football at Miami of Ohio University. Roethlisberger is certainly the most accomplished. After being drafted in 2004 by the Pittsburgh Steelers, the quarterback has nearly done it all. Been to 3 Super Bowls, winning 2, being selected to the Pro Bowl on more than one occasion, shattered personal and team records and the list could go on and on.

It is no wonder Roethlisberger is part of the induction class of 2015 into the Mid-American Conference (MAC) Hall of Fame. For all the accomplishments Roethlisberger has garnered in the NFL, he did tremendous things on the football field while at Miami of Ohio. From the Miami of Ohio's athletic website:

In his time at Miami, Roethlisberger completed 854-of-1,304 pass attempts for 10,829 yards and 84 touchdowns from 2001-03. His junior campaign was one for the ages, throwing for 4,486 yards and 37 touchdowns, leading Miami to 12-consecutive wins, including a Mid-American Conference Championship and GMAC Bowl victory.

That season alone, he captured third-team All-America honors and was just the third player in Miami history to garner the Vern Smith Award as the Mid-American Conference Most Valuable Player. Roethlisberger to this day still ranks first in Miami history in completion percentage (.655) and touchdowns, and is second in pass attempts, completions, yards and total offense (11,075).

Needless to say, Roethlisberger is starting to see his career come to fruition, and being selected into the MAC Hall of Fame is possibly just one of the Hall of Fames Roethlisberger might be inducted into one day.
