This is my personal all-time OSU team. It is probably a little skewed towards the present because my OSU fandom began in 1992, so I don't have a lot of knowledge from before then. I have listed, in bold, the "starters" at each position, and then a few other greats who are listed in roughly chronological order.  I have lumped the old time ends in as tight ends, and I may have messed up whether some guys were a DT or a DE, or a CB or a S, etc.  I have used a combination of pro and college performance here.  For example, Lou Groza didn't do that much at OSU, but he's a football legend and I feel he should be included.  On the other hand, Mike Tomczak did much more in the pros than Art Schlichter did, but that doesn't vault him ahead.  It's all subjective.  Anyway, I hope you enjoy it.
