This is Gray Box worthy imo.  This year just got better in an instant.  And for one reason and one reason alone: The Seniors.   
This sensior class deserves so much to play for this.  If this isn't the best rallying cry for this team this year I don't know what could be.  
So freakin Pumped!

I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.

Good point.  I also like the thought of getting a legit t-shirt that says Leaders Champs 2012 on it, and not have it be some sort of dickish custom job.

No doubt.   I'll swoop up a hat in no time if they win the "Leaders".  Corny name or not.

This is great news! The boys now have something tangible to play for that fits in the trophy case. It's just an object, but that has to be motivational (if they even needed it). I know it motivates me, and I can't make walk-on waterboy. We have a chance to say we're the best in X, even if we can't go on to Y due to N(caa buffoonery).

They have to take down banners for 2010, but get to keep a trophy if they win it this year? That's so odd to me. But I understand those wins were vacated and this is just a post-season ban and the trophy is a regular season award, it's just screwy. That's the NCAA for ya though I guess.

Two thoughts (from an absolute supporter of all things Buckeye): 
One, so what?!
Two, let's not put the cart before the horse.

I'm always fine with winning.  Probably doesn't change too much, but I'm glad for the seniors.

I wonder what Bret Bulimia thinks of this.

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

Is this the big ten's way of saying that they will give out trophies for winning the division and not the whole conference, have they been doing this and I just didn't know about it, answers would be nice?????
