Are You Not Entertained? Kent State

Well that was much better. Although I’m sure some folks will still complain despite thrashing Clark Kent State 66-0. Could have been a lot worse. I don’t see too much to be disappointed about. A win: We got that. And then some. 250 rushing yards: With 34 to spare. At least 200 passing yards: Had […]

What Do You Want To See On Saturday? Kent State

Here we go again. Last week’s disappointing loss is behind most of us. Kent State should be the perfect elixir for what allegedly ails the Buckeyes. I say allegedly because OSU has a rebuilt O-line, a QB who wasn’t supposed to play much yet and some new things on defense so it’s going to take […]

Pick ‘em Week 3: Newbie still leading (but not for long)

When does basketball season start? At least I predicted that Illinois would be on upset alert. Not sure how the Illini survived. Since we picked the same games last week, I wasn’t able to gain any ground on Ken and his soon-t0-be erased one-game lead. We nailed the Penn State, Wisconsin, Rutgers, Illinois, Maryland, Nebraska, […]

Are You Not Nauseated, uh, Entertained.

Well that was fun. Not. Have no clue what happened. Well, I have no clue why that happened. The Buckeyes did the Hokie Chokie. Despite that, a dropped TD pass and 2 missed field goals changed the game. Would love to have those back. Anyhow, let’s see if any of our wishes came true, starting […]

What Do You Want To See On Saturday? Virginia Tech

Navy is in the rearview mirror, thank goodness. It’s Virginia Tech week. The biggest thing for me this week is to make sure I spell Virginia right. Autocorrect, please be my friend this week. Think happy thoughts, think happy thoughts. So what the heck is Beamer Ball anyway? Is that like a Policeman’s Ball or […]

Pick ‘Em Week Two: Newbie In The Lead

Well, if Wisconsin hadn’t choked, yours truly would be off to a good start defending his Pick ‘em title.  But I accept being a game behind after one week. I have Ken right where he wants me. Or something like that. The Newbie is already talking smack. “I’m in the lead and all is right […]

Are You Not Entertained? Navy

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 […]

What Do You Want To See On Saturday? Navy

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. […]

Week 1 Pick ‘em: Here We Go Again

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 […]

2014 March Madness Bracketology: East Region

Have you turned in your brackets yet? Before you do, read this. I make no guarantees, but this will help you not finish last. Ethel the mail lady won’t read this. Let her finish last. Like one of my favorite one-hit wonders we will Head East and preview the region nobody is really talking about. […]

Big Dance Wide Open

The decisions have been made. The picks are in. It’s anybody’s NCAA Tournament. Really. Ohio State has a tough, but winnable draw. OSU is the No. 6 seed in the South and will play the Dayton Flyers, who many thought would be in the First Four, in Buffalo. The Flyers made it without having to play […]

Buckeyes top Sparty, get No. 5 seed

They’ve been ranked as high as No. 3 in the country and have felt the pains of being unranked and unimpressive. But now the Ohio State Buckeyes have a signature win and some momentum heading into the Big Ten Tournament. Michigan State’s Gary Harris missed a jumper as time expired and OSU came from behind to […]

OSU clamps down, wins on road

Stingy defense and a 20-6 spurt in the second half allowed the Ohio State Buckeyes to overcome an ugly first half and beat host Illinois 48-39 on Saturday. A sellout crowd of 17,200 fans, many of whom were dressed like empty seats at game’s end, watched as Aaron Craft scored 14 points to lead the OSU effort. LaQuinton Ross […]

Recruiting Classes: Do They Live Up To The Hype?

Today is the offseason day college football junkies love. It’s National Letter of Intent Day. The day high school seniors can make official their college choice. At the end of the day, or actually the signing period to be more exact, the so-called experts will rank the classes. Ohio State is hoping to claim the […]

Buckeye Fall To Spartans Despite Furious Comeback Attempt

Comeback kids? Cardiac kids? For most of the second half they were dead in the water. Fans were already looking forward to Sunday’s game against Iowa. But somehow, the Ohio State Buckeyes almost found a way. Almost. Overcoming a 17-point deficit with seven minutes left, the Buckeyes forced overtime and nearly pulled off a stunning win […]
