Wisconsin may have sort of faded into the sunset with the departure of every Bucknuts favorite coach BB, Illinois long ago left the rhelm of a rival with the "Zooker" victories and "this is our house" rants, Penn State lost Joe PA, but OBrien seems like a nice guy. with just crummy fans,...Michigan State has kind of been like a "buddy" with Dantonio at the helm, the bottom feeders of the Big 10 just will kind of roll over and take it as the Buckeyes steamroll them wiht no challenges... Maryland and Rutkers a threat,,I don't think so ..Bo at Nebraska may loom as a canditate, BUT outside of Brady Joke....er excuse me Hoke.....do the Buckeyes need or have any other Rival on the horizon to stew about?
A renewed series wiht Notre Shame would be nice and could enliven the conversation, but that is not in the works. a return to the Rose Bowl facing our old nemisis Southern Cal would be nice...but their fair haired boy has gone to Seattle...and there has been such a time gap......so I guess we have to be satisified on beating up on the Black..err Maize and Blue..for now.....and see if the Cornhuskers can fill the role of Rival Jr, as least for now!
WHAT DO YOU THINK?

The reality is every time we play a team we are the biggest game/opponent on their schedule. Everybody game plans, spends extra time, pull out all the stops, sells out to try and beat us. If happens, they storm the field. That is due to what Tressel built and Urban is continuing. I don't think we need another rival, nothing will ever trump the Meeechigan game anyway

Our quarterback does front flips, suck it.
This pretty much sums it up. I would venture to say Purdue will be a lot tougher under Hazell, and Wisconsin could be better with their new guy. However, they're not rivals, just teams whose coaches realize how impressive a win over Ohio State would look on their résumé (which is why they always play their best game of the year against the Bucks). Meatchicken is the only rival we need and frankly, I hope we kick their asses like we did in the Rodriguez years. I don't care how it makes THE rivalry look. I want to dominate them.
I don't think we play Nebraska for the next few years, unless we meet them in the conference championship.
The things I would do to have ND on the schedule every year....
I don't know... But I think it's about time we started taking purdue a little more seriously
After they disband their football team (having lost to OSU for the fortieth straight time)--after they are buried and covered with dirt.
They aren't our rival. They are our beyotch!
Michigan University will always be our main rival. Wisky hired a good one IMO(albeit not a flashy name) as I think he will fit in there and keep them near the top of the league. If Urban stays healthy our rivals will be national and change from season to season come BCS "playoff" time.
