The spring superlatives series continues with Ohio State, which almost certainly will be the Big Ten preseason favorite. Ohio State comes off of another Big Ten title and a Rose Bowl championship, but 2010 always seemed to be the year for loftier goals.

Nine starters return on offense, including quarterback Terrelle Pryor, All-Big Ten guard Justin Boren and standout receiver DeVier Posey. The defense loses a bit more but brings back linemen Cameron Heyward, an All-America candidate, as well as linebackers Ross Homan and Brian Rolle.

Strongest position: Linebacker

Weakest position: Safety
