Ohio State is coming off its worst season since 1999, finishing with a 6-6 record and not earning at least a share of the conference title for the first time since 2004. While the 2011 season had plenty of drama and a disappointing record, the Buckeyes won’t be down for long.

Just how soon can Ohio State fans start to think about a trip to the Big Ten title game? Try 2012.
