    Welcome to the tenth installment of the "Greatest Buckeyes Ever" poll - this one allows you to vote for the best Buckeye defensive tackle. Every Saturday, we will post a poll on "Who's the Greatest Buckeye" at each of the positions. The last poll, head coach, will open on the day of THE GAME, and close on December 30th. By New Years Day, we will have the Buckeye Planet All-Time Buckeye Team.

    All players selected for the poll will be from the "modern era", which we have more-or-less arbitrarily determined to have begun with the hiring of Woody Hayes in 1951. However, there will be a special poll for the older Buckeye stars, where you will be allowed to choose amongst such greats as Les Horvath, Vic Janowicz, Chic Harley, etc.

    Please vote on each poll, if you can. Also, please note that each poll will allow you to vote at least twice, as we would like to compile a first and second team. If you vote for "other", please let us know your selection(s) by setting forth the name(s) in a post.

    Polls will be posted as follows:

    1. Quarterback (CLOSED - Rex Kern is the first team QB, with Craig Krenzel as the second team selection)
    2. Tailback (CLOSED - no surprise: Archie is first team, Eddie is second)
    3. Athlete (CLOSED - Paul Warfield and Chris Gamble are first team; Cie Grant and Brian Bashnagel are second)
    4. Fullback (CLOSED - Pete Johnson made first team, Jim Otis lead second team)
    5. Wide Receiver (OPEN - Cris Carter, David Boston, and Michael Jenkins lead, with Joey Galloway and Terry Glenn vying for fourth place)
    6. Tight End (OPEN - John Frank and Rickey Dudley lead)
    7. Offensive Tackle (OPEN - Orlando Pace, John Hicks, and Korey Stringer lead by a large margin)
    8. Offensive Guard (OPEN - Jim Lachey and Jim Parker lead, with Rob Murphy also receiving plenty of votes)
    9. Offensive Center (OPEN - LeCharles Bentley and Jeff Uhlenhake lead)
    10. Defensive Tackle (OPEN)
    11. Defensive End
    12. Outside Linebacker
    13. Middle Linebacker
    14. Safety
    15. Cornerback
    16. Kicker
    17. Punter
    18. "Old Timer"
    19. Head Coach

    So, please vote now for your All-Time Greatest Buckeye Defensive Tackle; please make FOUR selections.

    Note: Many of the players on the list were All-Americans: Jim Stillwagon (1969, 1970); Jim Marshall (1958); Pete Cusick (1974); Aaron Brown (1977); Dan Wilkinson (1993). All Big Ten selections include all of the above, plus Nick Buonamici (1975, 1976), Jerome Foster (1980, 1982), George Hasenohrl (1972), Darrion Scott (2002), and Tim Anderson (2003). Ryan Pickett did not receive any post-season honors, but was a first round draft choice of the St. Louis Rams.
    Thanks for your participation.

    I went with Stillwagon, Marshall, Cusick, and Brown (close over Big Daddy).

    Brown's quickness at NT was amazing. Just watched him again on ESPN Classic with the '77 Oklahoma game.

    BuckeyeBill73: "I went with Stillwagon, Marshall, Cusick, and Brown (close over Big Daddy)."

    I had to vote for Big Daddy on that list. He had the best physical skills package of any DT I've ever seen: big, fast, quick, exceptionally strong, and tall as a tree. At the college level, there's only one DT I've seen that was "hands down" better than Wilkinson, and that's Steve Emtman.

    He just never cared enough, and that's why he busted in the pros.

    Where are these threads?

    How hard would it be to reopen voting on center for consideration of Brewster or Mangold? ZBoren for 2nd team fullback?
