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.
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.
The last non-cornerback addition to the position coaches ranks is having the same kind of impact he did as a player.
Tom Herman's Texas State and Rice roots are helping Ohio State expand a potential pipeline down to the Lone Star State.
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.

Spencer takes what Matt hit on a few weeks prior and goes full on ham with it.
A look at contemporary coaching trees (though if they included Mike Leach as a branch under Bob Stoops it'd be pretty much game over). Buckeye fall opponent Jeff Tedford is listed in the most prosperous tree.
An interesting look at the ongoing controversy.
The SS (welp) Wilco Project keeps a-rollin'.
Tone it down there, chief.
