During this decade, the Bucks hired head coach Jim Tressel (2001), won one national championship (2002), been in two others (2006, 2007), had a Heisman Trophy winner (Troy Smith, 2006), took at least a share of the Big Ten conference title five times (2002, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008) and possess a 7-2 record against Michigan (7-1 under Tressel).
Not too shabby!
Well, as this first decade ticks away, I thought that it was time to reflect on some of the best Buckeyes players to don the Scarlet and Gray over the past ten seasons and put together an All-Decade squad.
It was quite difficult to put together, but listed below is who I would field as my Buckeyes team of the decade:
RB-Chris "Beanie" Wells
G-Alex Stepanovich* Only started one season as a guard, but I had to have him on the first team.
Returner-Ted Ginn Jr.
WR-Ted Ginn Jr.
