The big ugglies took center stage on the defensive side of the ball during Ohio State spring football practice, but the cornerbacks nipped on the defensive line's heels when it came to impressing the most people.

Chimdi Chekwa brought smiles to a lot of Ohio State football fans' faces last spring when he assured them the defense would not take a step back despite the loss of stalwarts such as Kurt Coleman and Thaddeus Gibson: "We're Ohio State: Defense is what we do."
