The landscape of Big Ten football was forever changed on Nov. 28, 2011 when Urban Meyer was introduced as the new head football coach at Ohio State.
The news doesn't get much better if you're a Buckeye fan, and it doesn't get much worse if you root for any of the other 11 Big Ten schools.
The hiring of Meyer will have an immediate impact on the conference and could distance the Buckeyes even further from the pack than they already are.
Between 2002 and 2010, Ohio State claimed at least a share of the Big Ten title seven times while winning one BCS Championship and three more BCS bowl games.
Big Ten football fans should expect this type of dominance to continue to an even great extent with Meyer and his All-Star recruiting staff officially on board.
Let's examine why the hiring of Urban Meyer will make Ohio State the Big Ten favorites for years to come.
