Brent Yarina, Senior Editor, April 30, 2012

Next up on our Twitter Tips series: Ohio State. Having already featured eight schools (see them all here), now it's time to turn our attention to the guys who tweet about the Buckeyes in our 12-installment series that spotlights every Big Ten institution, in alphabetical order. The goal is simple: to share some of our favorite school-specific Twitter accounts with our fans. With that out of the way, let?s get to the Ohio State handles.

The Buckeyes boast plenty of worthy follows, from informative beat writers (@PDBuckeyes) to dedicated bloggers (@ramzyn) to passionate coaches (@JeffBoals). Basically, whatever it is you're looking for, Ohio State has a presence on Twitter.
