Raised as the son of an Ohio State grad, I've been a Buckeye fan since a kid. Went out of state to college at the school that has since become the latest (associate) member of the B1G. Have lived in NJ virtually my entire adult life.Still get a thrill watching TBDBITL and Buckeye football.

Off-the field antics aside, Rose (who I'm not fond of, despite growing up as a Reds fan) has a much stronger case for enshrinement than Hornung, who basically was a merely a good multi-dimensional player on a great team.

Protecting the QB was excellent, with sacks occurring less than 4% of the time, even though the QB wasn't a proficient scrambler, and even though we passed so often the defense could expect it was coming. run blocking was sub-par by Ohio State standards, probably due to a number of factors, one of which was having tackles (I.e., pass protectors) across the line.

The major "recruiting expense," even if it's not tracked as such, is really the share of coaching salaries for the share of coaches' time that goes into recruiting. That's where Ohio State excels - at least in quality and likely in quantity.

I thought Fick's 2011 Buckeyes would win at least 10, and have a shot at a 12-0 regular season.

It wasn't THAT far-fetched, with 6 of the 7 losses coming by 7 points or less, but the lack of an offense under Bollman and Siciliano doomed them.

I read where Dabo had given Wilkins a "talking to" afterwards, but there were no other apparent repercussions. And his teammate, Boulware was quoted saying that it was a thing Clemson players had been doing all season.  Yep, Dabo insists upon upstanding conduct by his players.
