Lordy, do readers love the Ohio State Buckeyes. Northeast Ohio might as well be a suburb of Columbus at this point. The Scarlet and Grey reign supreme year after year on the back of on-field success and plenty of alums hanging around these parts. Plus, if you didn't go to a big-time college, OSU is probably you're adopted alma mater. Urban Meyer is basically God in Buckeye Country, and though the Bucks fell in yet another bowl game, Meyer's been shaping the team to play more like the SEC and less like the Big Ten, which should pay dividends down the road. Braxton Miller returns in 2014 for his senior season and OSU has its sights set on the inaugural college football playoff, which kicks off for the first time this year.
