Ten Years at The Buckeye Battle Cry: A Look Back

The Buckeye Battle Cry is now 10 years old. Holy crap. Being a father of a vocal and creative 9 year old, I can easily say that tBBC doesn’t act a day over 6. As the guy who coined the “tBBC” nomenclature and who herded the cats the longest, ten years is simply unbelievable to […]

Heisman Hype: Ezekiel Elliott

It’s a difficult problem that Ohio State fans have- Four members of the offensive team are Heisman hopefuls.

Sure, three of them are quarterbacks, but still… how many teams wish they had two candidates for the stiff arm trophy on the field at any one time?

Now that his wrist is healed and he’s cleared for contact again, Vegas has junior Ezekiel Elliott as the favorite in the preseason. That’s good enough reason for our friend Mekka Don to drop this new tune and hype video. August can’t get here soon enough.

Hopefully we’ll get to hear Don’s work for Braxton, Cardale, and JT as well… Really looking forward to hearing what rhymes with “Quarterback Ghidorah“.
