Seniors tabbed for Big Ten Media Days

The Big Ten announced the players scheduled to attend its annual Media Days and Kickoff Luncheon later this month, and Ohio State is sending all seniors.

Defensive end John Simon, linebacker Etienne Sabino and fullback Zach Boren will represent the Buckeyes along with new coach Urban Meyer at the two-day event in Chicago starting on July 26.

The preference for veterans appears to have bumped starting quarterback Braxton Miller off the docket heading into his sophomore campaign -- though he's obviously still got time to make the rounds with the league media before his Ohio State career ends.
