Top 10 Buckeye Athletes

Buckeye fans will want to check out this SI.com photo gallery of Ohio State's Top 10 Athletes of all time.

I have some issues with the order, and maybe with a couple of omissions (John Havlicek, Orlando Pace, Clark Kellogg, Neil Colzie, Jack Tatum?) but I guess the Bucks could put their top four or so up against just about any other school. Start with Jesse Owens, Jack Nicklaus, Jerry Lucas and Archie Griffin, icons all, and then take your pick of Eddie George, Troy Smith or Greg Oden as the fifth man.

I suppose USC could put up a quintet made up completely of Heisman Trophy winning running backs (Garrett, Simpson, Allen, White, and Bush) but that group lacks diversity. What other school has a comparable group? I'm just asking.
