Bradley Roby to Return for 2013 Season

Broby is back! After some (emphasis on some) hand-wringing over whether the cornerback was going to remain in Columbus for his junior season, Bradley Roby informed Tim May of the Dispatch that he'll be returning to the team to take a shot at some "unfinished business."

This is a huge boost for Ohio State, which would have lacked any kind of shutdown corner had he decided to go pro. In 2012, Roby accounted for 17 passes defended, two interceptions, a sack, and 63 total tackles. By staying, he makes the entire defense that much better, and helps make up for some of the defensive line and linebacker attrition that will occur this year through graduation.

In addition, he also gives me another season to try to spread the "Broby" nickname, which I think we can all agree here is the real victory in the situation.

Thanks for sticking around, number 1.
