I’m rolling out some quick football season reviews during the lull between the end of football’s regular season and the bowl games, and I’m starting with Ohio State. In Urban Meyer’s much-anticipated debut, Ohio State went 12-0 and ranked No. 3 in the AP poll as one of just two FBS unbeatens. It was the sixth unbeaten and untied season in school annals. But, because of NCAA probation, the Buckeyes weren’t eligible to play in the Big Ten title game or a bowl.
Minnesota senior MarQueis Gray will have no trouble remembering what he did on 12/12/12. The quarterback-turned-receiver-turned-quarterback-turned-receiver got married Wednesday. Gray tweeted a picture of the happy couple, with the message: “Thanks everyone for the best wishes!! From the newlywed couple @MissAlleyBehr and myself!!” See the picture in this post.
