The buzz is back at Ohio State after a rare losing season, and not even a postseason ban can put a damper on the beginning of the Urban Meyer era. The Buckeyes won't be eligible for a bowl and can't play for the Big Ten title, but they can still have a heavy influence on the latter as they work with an eye toward the future. Braxton Miller heads into his sophomore campaign already a seasoned starter, and Meyer has big plans for a quarterback who might be the perfect weapon in his spread attack. The Buckeyes might need a few other playmakers to emerge on offense, but that's not a problem defensively, where arguably the best line in the nation will be deployed.
