Analyzing Ohio State’s 2012 Schedule " Big Ten Network

The Big Ten Network's Tom Dienhart with a look at Ohio State's 2012 football schedule:

Rugged stretch: The season ends with a tough 1-2 punch: a trip to Wisconsin—Ohio State’s chief rival in the Leaders Division–on Nov. 17 and a visit from "that team up North" on Nov. 24. Interestingly, the Big Ten season opens with a bang, too, with a trip to Michigan State on Sept. 29 followed by a visit from Nebraska on Oct. 6.

Interesting factoid: In Big Ten play, the Buckeyes alternate home and road games, never playing two in a row at home or on the road.

Dienhart also points out that the mightier-when-scheduled Cal Golden Bears were just 20-18 in the last 3 seasons.

Class of '09 a bust?

Probably not too soon to start mulling the question over, particularly when you look at the departures and the Jamie Wood's of the world.

Not news per se, as Gee has been recommending it for almost 5 years, but definitely something potentially of interest to current and prospective students. I lived on-campus for some of my sophomore year and some off. Living in the right dorm for year two could be key for some, but living in the boring dredges of Baker Hall East wasn't for me.
