On the heels of a #3 ranking in the coaches preseason poll, the Buckeyes have received a #2 ranking in the AP preseason poll released this morning.

OSU received the second most first place votes (21) with #1 Georgia garnering 22 first place nods.

Of course, preseason polls mean jack squat but the amount of #1 votes seems to indicate the media isn't hating on OSU as much as national fans.

OSU edged out the Trojans who come in ranked 3rd while Oklahoma and Florida round out the top 5.

Bob Baptist reported Cincinnati Aiken's Chane Behanan, Ohio's top 2011 hoops recruit, has verbally committed to UC.

The Athletic Department kicked in another $4 million toward renovations of the main library meaning the $108.7 million project is now fully funded. The most recent gift is in addition to a $5 million donation made previously.

A 108 million dollar library?!? Sounds like a nice place to get your read on.
