As of July 1st, it’s official. Rutgers and Maryland are members of the Big Ten. As a way to help introduce Terps fans to their compatriots in the league, they’ve done a series on each team in the conference.
Here’s what stood out to me about their profile of Ohio State:
Notable Former Athletes, Football: Jake Ballard, Mike Adams, A.J. Hawk, Terrelle Pryor, Malcolm Jenkins, Mike Vrabel
I’m not sure how Eddie George, Chris Spielman and Archie Griffin failed to make this list. While it may suggest a bias toward recent history, Jerry Lucas, John Havlicek and Bobby Knight made the cut when it came to notable former basketball players.
Also, Jack Nicklaus is included amongst the “notable alumni,” not notable former athletes.
So OSU fans, what do you think it’s important for Maryland and Rutgers fans know about the Buckeyes? Leave your suggestions in the comments section.
