Buckeyes must fill big holes up front on offense

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Every college team wants big people on the offensive line.

Ohio State had big people with big personalities.

Now four of the five starters are gone, leaving Taylor Decker to pass on the unit's legacy of clearing running lanes, sealing off the passer and sticking together like a long-haired band of brothers in some action flick.

The Buckeyes coaches like the personnel, but it'll still be difficult replacing the wise-cracking, pad-cracking Jack Mewhort, Andrew Norwell, Corey Linsley and Marcus Hall up front.

After all, Ohio State scored more points last season than in any of its 124 seasons. With QB Braxton Miller returning (after missing spring ball due to shoulder surgery) and a pack of interesting options at the skill positions, a lot is riding on the line.
