With Beckman at Illinois, that makes four of 12 coaches in the B10 with ties to OSU. The list includes Beckman, Meyer, Dantonio and Pelini. The second runner up would be Iowa with Ferentz and Pelini (he was a GA so is double counted here) and Bielema only played. Northwestern sits in third with Fitzgerald and Wilson. Not sure what that says about the Ohio program when past staff or alums coach 1/3 of the conference teams (a comment could be made about Iowa here as well). At least we know where the hate will be coming from, as if we didn't know already.
Needed to make a correction re: Pelini, I thought he was a GA at Ohio as well, it was Iowa.
