Big Ten lunch links: New offense at Ohio State

Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg

Taking a quick spin around the Big Ten.

The offense will undergo changes that couldn't be made at midseason last year, when [Jim] Tressel made Pryor the starter. But the Buckeyes apparently are looking at several options to upgrade this year's model.

That might include more use of the pistol formation, in which the quarterback lines up about 4 yards behind center with a tailback behind him. It also could include a version of the single-wing formation, in which the quarterback would line up about 7 yards behind center, but often would have a back crossing in front of him from a slot just before or just after the snap, creating options and confusion.
