Depends on who you spoke to, the Buckeyes either looked pretty good or pretty bad. Nonetheless, it was a win over a Navy team that is always tough to prepare for because of its offense. How did our predictions and wish list turn out? Scott Illegal blocks penalized: No chop blocks this time. Let Jalin […]
For those of you new to our little corner of the intertrons, every Monday we’ll do a quick look back at the weekend’s major matchups, minor stories, and general acts of randomness. As is our tradition, we’ll provide you with some mood music for your reading enjoyment… Remember, even though it‘s Labor Day there are […]
Typically, we’ll have a “report” from the bleachers on Sunday Nights… what was the fan experience at Saturday’s game. This week, though, we’ve got so much more, as you’ll see. When the 2014 Ohio State football schedule was released, my friend Phil and I both saw the exact same thing. OSU playing Navy in Baltimore […]
Urban Meyer and Tom Herman may not be wizards, but they just might be the closest thing we’ll see anytime soon. It’s never easy playing the United States Naval Academy (see Ohio State circa 2009) and it’s even more difficult to do so on an “away” site with a Redshirt Freshman Quarterback and a brand […]
Welcome to this week’s edition of Weekend Wonderings. This is a huge weekend; opening weekend for college, and high school, football, Labor Day weekend, and the school year is underway. Busy, busy, busy.. For our part, we’ll have a couple updates on The James, comment on some community related events and wrap it up with […]
The Buckeyes took to the field for the first time this season in Baltimore, Maryland to face the Midshipmen of the United States Naval Academy. Navy was ready for a fight, and gave the Buckeyes all they could handle through the majority of the first three quarters. However, a late surge by the Buckeyes was […]
Welcome to a new season of Ohio State football, and another year of our liveblogging shenanigans! The Buckeyes are ready to play for keeps today, but we’re still in our preseason camp here at The Buckeye Battle Cry… we’re still getting used to the new hotness that is our Bloguin platform. As such, we’re going […]
Every Saturday before kickoff, tBBC staff corals all the reading material you need to get ready for the game. From our workings throughout the week to the internet beyond — here are the articles and media you need to get caught up on as you enjoy your Week 1 tailgate. The college football Saturday always […]
There has definitely been a lot to choose from when it comes to the good, the bad, and the ugly of Ohio State football in the past couple of weeks, but as I typically do to begin the season let’s hit the high points about tomorrow. Some of you have been in mid-season form and of […]
The folks from Campus Insiders are kicking off the season in style, talking with Ohio State’s head coach about the challenges of opening on the road and facing a potent offense:
Every week we’ll be joined by someone from “behind enemy lines”- a blogger for the opposition. This week, though, “enemy” is not a good delineation, as we absolutely honor our men and women from the service academies… football isn’t “war”, what they do keeps us from knowing that up close and personal.
The Buckeyes travel to Baltimore and finally get a chance to hit someone who isn’t a teammate. Are you paying attention Csont’e York? With that said, our staffers offer up their wish list. As for myself: Throw the flag: Navy is infamous for their illegal chop blocks on almost every play. Let’s see them penalized. […]
The Buckeye Battle Cry Radio Hour is back for the 2014 season! Sure, we are a little late to the party but Clair and Joe are back to get you ready for every game during the football season. Don’t you love this time of the year?
Of course the main topic of discussion was Ohio State’s opponent on Saturday — The Navy Midshipmen.
Clair and Joe broke down the depth chart, discussed JT Barrett and the task in front of him. Of course we talked Braxton Miller’s injury and how it changes the outlook of the team and it’s dimensions of offense.
We also talked about what we wanted to see on the field in the season opener and played the trivial game of Radio Hour destiny.
Just who in the heck do you pronounce the Navy head coach’s last name?
The only way you’re going to find out is if you listen in to the show!
Of course, you can add the show on iTunes as well!
Thanks for tuning in everyone and enjoy week one of the football season!
Pick ‘em has returned. Yes. We’re going to do it again. It’s on. (I apologize for the advertisements in the video links. Nothing I can do about that.) After unceremoniously defeating Gary in come-from-behind fashion last year, I am back to take on a new “challenger” – Ken – in our weekly pick ‘em game. Ken, buddy, you’re […]
The #5/#6 Buckeyes begin their 2014 season with a game against the Naval Academy in Baltimore, MD. I’d think that this would qualify as a “Home” game for the Midshipmen because the two cities are only about 20 miles apart and regardless of where the game is played, deep in your heart, don’t you cheer […]
