Ohio State Football: Buckeyes picked second in Big Ten East by Big Ten Network

Of course, since the injury to quarterback Braxton Miller, there are a lot of people jumping off the Ohio State bandwagon. Just a weel ago, there were people that had national championship aspirations for this team. Now, they’re not even picked first in their own division within the Big Ten Conference.

Well, so says Tom Dienhart at the Big Ten Network.

However, in Dienhart’s defense, when he ranked Michigan State ahead of Ohio State, he did note that he chose the Spartans as the favorite even before Miller went down.

Here’s what he had to say about Michigan State.

Look, I liked the Spartans BEFORE Ohio State superstar Braxton Miller was ruled out. Michigan State will have one of the Big Ten’s top offenses. The defense? Well, we know the Spartan brand on that side of the ball. Pay no heed to starters lost. At MSU, it’s plug and play.

Next, he took his stab at the Buckeyes.

 The loss of Braxton Miller to a season-ending shoulder injury doesn’t mean the sky is falling in Columbus. It only means the ceiling on this season isn’t as high. National championship? Nope. Major bowl bid? Still possible. There is talent, but so many questions: quarterback, running back, o-line, pass defense …
