    Welcome to the ninth installment of the "Greatest Buckeyes Ever" poll - this one allows you to vote for the best Buckeye center. 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 (OPEN - Pete Johnson and Jim Otis lead)
    5. Wide Receiver (OPEN - Cris Carter and David Boston lead, with Jenkins, Galloway, and Glenn vying for third and fourth place)
    6. Tight End (OPEN - John Frank leads, with Ben Hartsock, Rickey Dudley, and Jan White battling for second place)
    7. Offensive Tackle (OPEN - Orlando Pace, John Hicks, and Korey Stringer lead)
    8. Offensive Guard (OPEN - Jim Lachey and Jim Parker lead, with Rob Murphy also receiving plenty of votes)
    9. Offensive Center (OPEN)
    10. Defensive Tackle
    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 (Football) Center; please make TWO selections.

    Note: Most of the selections were All-Americans (Pryor in 1966; DeLeone in 1971; Myers in 1974; Uhlenhake in 1988(he was also All Big Ten at guard in 1986); and Bentley in 2001, when he also won the Rimington award). Maggs was a two-time All Big Ten selection (1985 and 1986); Lowdermilk was All Big Ten in 1984; and although Step began his career at center, he was an All Big Ten selection at guard in 2003.

    Thanks for your participation.
