All of the negative energy surrounding the Ohio State football program aside, it's time to make some preseason predictions and talk about five Buckeyes poised for breakout season.
If I would have told you a year ago The Ohio State Buckeyes would have a new coach for the first time in 10 years, and would be starting a true freshman quarterback from Week 1 as well, I would have been called crazy.
Well, It's true.
Luke Fickell has taken over for Jim Tressel, and Braxton Miller will most likely fill the void left by Terrelle Pryor.
All of the NCAA investigations aside, the 2011 season should be a fun one for Buckeye Nation. With so many young but talented players in line to make their mark on the university this year, it's exiting to finally see these underclassman that were highly-touted recruits in high school get a shot.
