So let’s review.
The Big Ten weekly awards came out Monday morning, and no Buckeye football, men’s basketball or women’s basketball player earned recognition.
Well, that happens.
Ok, the Wolverines beat Pittsburgh and Kansas State while OSU was routing mighty, mighty UMKC. So it stings, but there’s some logic there.
Then, as evening rolled around, the Big Ten aired their football awards show, and we finally went from a mildly disappointing day to “are-you-kidding-me?” territory.
After Ohio State finished first in league play in scoring offense, second in total offense, how many OSU offensive players did the Big Ten coaches vote to receive first-team all-conference honors?
The league’s quarterback of the year and Davey O’Brien award finalist Braxton Miller was named a second-teamer by Big Ten coaches?
Not one Ohio State offensive lineman earned even second-team mention by the coaches?
It was a little bit better for the Buckeye defense, but even so, Bradley Roby was snubbed when it came to the Big Ten’s defensive back of the year honor, losing out to Iowa’s Micah Hyde?
Ryan Shazier, who was first in tackles for loss, fourth in sacks and fifth in total tackles in conference play was voted to the second-team by the coaches?
It’s enough to make you think that OSU head man Urban Meyer maybe ruffled some feathers this year.
