Athlon Sports Magazine Ranks Buckeyes at #2

The number one selling football magazine, Athlon Sports, have ranked the Buckeyes number two in their annual Top 25 Rankings.

By Eric Geier

            The Nashville, Tennessee based company also predicts the Buckeyes will win another outright Big Ten Title.  In the number one position sits Florida, a team the Buckeyes have seen their fair share of on the gridiron and on the hard court. It should also be noted that in 2007 Athlon Sports Magazine was the number one magazine in terms of prediction accuracy. Senior Editor Mitch Light explained his logic behind the pick saying, "There isn't an apparent weakness on this team. The schedule has a few hurdles, notably at USC, at Wisconsin and at Illinois, but we'd be very surprised if the Buckeyes aren't in the national title hunt very late in the season.”

            The Buckeyes also have 11 All Big Ten Performers. They are as follows:

First Team All-Big Ten and First Team All-American- Chris Wells and James Laurinaitus.

First Team All-Big Ten and Second Team All-American- Malcolm Jenkins

First Team All-Big Ten and Third Team All-American- Alex Boone

First Team All-Big Ten- Todd Boeckman, Brian Robiskie, Marcus Freeman and Anderson Russell.

Second Team All-Big Ten- Brian Hartline and Kurt Coleman

Third Team All-Big Ten- A.J. Trepasso
