Last week, I posted an article on the top 5 defensive trios in the Big Ten. The list consisted of the top DL-LB-DB trio in the conference, and was highlighted by Ohio State.
A series that covers the true revolutionaries, Game Changers explores how innovators from Big Ten universities — students, faculty and alums — are inventing or reinventing their chosen fields. Louis Pasteur. Jonas Salk. Kristin Comella? It’s perhaps a bit premature to say that this Ohio State graduate should be mentioned in the same breath as those giants of medical science.
