  • I'm looking forward to 2012's version with an extra helping of Buckeyes.

  • Haha! This is actually the second straight season where OSU has not had at least one player as a First-Team All-American. But they did have at least one from 1991-2009!

  • Good to see Big Ten representation nationally. The conference had a great year and Bowl season looks good also. Though feel free to keep Buckeyes off the list for long as possible.
