The scandal in Columbus has left the Ohio State Buckeyes in a state of flux.
Starting quarterback Terrelle Pryor is involved in an investigation about his use of dealership cars, and No. 1 wide receiver DeVier Posey was suspended with Pryor and left tackle Mike Adams. Running back Dan Herron and defensive end Soloman Thomas were also suspended, which leaves the Buckeyes looking for players to step up in their star players' absence.
Coach Jim Tressel's resignation has raised even more uncertainty for the 2011 football season, however, the Buckeyes football team still has the talent to continue the team's recent success.
These five players will be expected to raise their game to help OSU and interim coach, Luke Fickell, in their quest for their seventh consecutive Big Ten Championship.
