Just another O-State fanatic whose first favorite player was Reuben Gant...yea, I'm that old...
With Smart's decision to forego GOBS of money in the NBA, 2013-14 is shaping up to be an epic time for the two marquee sports at OSU.
While the defense looks to rebound, this group just keeps chugging along, much to the dismay of DC's around the league and the country.
After years of a "bend don't break" philosophy that created an epidemic of ulcers among OSU loyalists, word is a more aggressive style may be employed in 2013. We can only hope.
We can all fall in love with the story (Chelf) or the arm (Lunt), but 2012's most productive QB was neither of those, and it wasn't really that close.

Players, coaches, AD, fans...even the NBA...have conspired to suck the life out of a once proud program.
