Notre Dame Tight End transferring to Ohio State

Notre Dame tight end Chase Hounshell announced on Twitter Monday morning that he is transferring to Ohio State. “I can’t thank ND enough but I am excited to announce I will be transferring to THE Ohio State University! Go Bucks! ” Hounshell tweeted. Because he is a graduate transfer, he is eligible to play this […]

What’s up with the OSU women basketball?

I needed some time to wrap my head around this. After another early exit in the NCAA Tournament by the Ohio State women’s basketball team, I’ve spent several days trying to figure out what happened. The third-seeded Lady Buckeyes were soundly beaten by Tennessee in the Sweet 16. This was a Buckeye team ranked in […]

Buckeyes come up short in Madison, Fall to Wisconsin 79-68

The Wisconsin Badgers are not exactly a prolific three-point shooting team but you’ll have a hard time convincing Ohio State that. Wisconsin, which makes just 33.3 percent of its three-pointers, sank 13 of 27 from long range en route to a 79-68 win over the Buckeyes at the Kohl Center Thursday night. The 48.1 percent was the […]

OSU Men’s Basketball At Midseason

(Thad appreciates the perspective) The B1G basketball season is heating up. And if Tuesday’s win over Northwestern is any indication, so are the Ohio State Buckeyes. After a dismal 8-5 pre-conference performance that included losses to UT-Arlington and Louisiana Tech and one high-profile win over Kentucky – which is looking less impressive each time Kentucky plays – […]

Are You Not Entertained? Michigan

(Image Courtesy of rapidnwsnetwork.com) Welcome back, Buckeyes. That’s more like it. The Silver Bullets shut down Michigan’s offense. The offense gashed and thrashed Michigan’s vaunted run defense. We also took over the Big House as chants of O-H-I-O could not be drowned out by the students booing. All-in-all, I think all of tBBC staffers have to be […]

Even though tweeting at the punter is a bad idea, is making a T that pokes fun at the kid in the stands any different?

What Do You Want To See? Michigan

It’s time. It’s The Game. Nothing else matters. If OSU wins one game all year, it must be this one. If OSU loses one game all year, it must NOT be this one. The Buckeyes appear to be in a little bit of dysfunction with at least one player criticizing the play calling publicly and […]

Are You Not Entertained? *ichigan State

Didn’t that just suck? I know it’s not the end of the word, especially since it’s *ichigan week.  But I just don’t feel up to talking about the game against *SU. So let’s just move on to the recap of how everything we wanted to see never happened.   Scott A decisive win: FailMali Buckeye Big […]

Recap: Sparty stuns Buckeyes 17-14

Unless we have Armageddon there will be a new college football national champion. Michael Geiger’s 41-yard field goal as time expired gave No. 9 Michigan State a 17-14 win over No. 3 Ohio State, causing a shakeup in the College Football Playoff situation. When the new rankings are announced, the defending national champion Buckeyes will likely […]

What Do You Want To See? Michigan State

Well, I guess it’s “put up or shut up” time for the Buckeyes. We have been hearing a lot about how OSU plays down to its level of competition and only gets up for the Big Boys.  The next two weeks the boys are as big as they come as OSU plays Michigan State and […]

COLUMBUS, OH - SEPTEMBER 26:  Head Coach Urban Meyer of the Ohio State Buckeyes shouts instructions to his team in the second quarter against the Western Michigan Broncos at Ohio Stadium on September 26, 2015 in Columbus, Ohio.

Are You Not Entertained? Illinois

(Urban wants to you be entertained, but keep the noise level down) It’s a win. That’s what it’s all about. I could sit here and talk about the eye test, the need to pound pansies and how the offense allegedly is not what it was last year. But no. I’m going to avoid the superlatives […]

Are You Not Entertained? Idle Week

Well wasn’t that idle week quite active. I’m sure the last thing Urban Meyer told his players before they left Thursday was to be smart. Whoops. Anywho, it was quite the interesting weekend where OSU wasn’t concerned as well. Near-upsets, blown calls by officials, bad decisions by coaches. Oh my! Without further ado, here is how tBBC staff fared. Much […]

2015-16 Men’s Basketball Preview: Marc Loving

With all the youth the BasketBucks have, junior Marc Loving finds himself as the elder statesman. He’s the most experienced player on the roster and no doubt will be looked upon to provide leadership to the younger guys and pass that knowledge on to the guys who will lead after him. That’s how Loving became […]

What Do You Want To See? Idle Week

This is my Saturday to get caught up on chores around the house since there is no OSU game and Notre Dame doesn’t play until the evening. But here at tBBC we are never idle. So while OSU takes a break, we bring you a national edition of the often-duplicated, but never imitated What Do […]

Let this guy be angry and take it out on the players, not you!

Are You Not Entertained? Rutgers

(Guessing by the look on Urban’s face you’d better be entertained) I’ve always said one player doesn’t make or break a team. With the exception of Michael Jordan. And now, J.T. Barrett. No, I’m not comparing the latter to NBA’s greatest of all time, but after one game, I’m ready to hand Barrett OSU’s MVP […]

What Do You Want To See? Rutgers

Welcome back, J.T. Like I did, many Ohio State football fans rejoiced when Coach Urban Meyer announced that J.T. Barrett would start at Rutgers Saturday night. Nothing against previous starter Cardale Jones, but the offense seemed to flow better and have that rhythm that it had much of last year when Barrett was putting up […]

COLUMBUS, OH - OCTOBER 17:  Ezekiel Elliott #15 of the Ohio State Buckeyes scores on a 10-yard touchdown run in the second quarter as Gary Wooten Jr. #8, Trevor Williams #10, Manny Bowen #43, Carl Nassib #95, and Marcus Allen #2, all of the Penn State Nittany Lions, watch at Ohio Stadium on October 17, 2015 in Columbus, Ohio.

Are You Not Entertained? Penn State

Well, well, well. Lookie at what he have he-eah. A real quarterback controversy. J.T. Barrett comes in to relieve an ineffective Cardale Jones and he sparks the offense, giving it the pace and flow it had much of last season as OSU thrashed Penn State. Coach Urban Meyer said he would take a look at […]

What Do You Want To See? Penn State vs. Ohio State

It’s time to put on the big-boy pants Buckeyes. A formidable opponent in Penn State awaits Ohio State in a nationally televised game with ESPN on ABC’s top announcing crew. This is a perfect opportunity for Ohio State to show what it is really is. With Big Brother and Little Brother playing in that state […]

Are You Not Entertained? Maryland

Well, well, well. Welcome back offense. Where’d ya go defense? Seems to be the continuing saga of the Buckeyes football season. Eventually both sides are going to start playing complete games at the same time. When that happens, watch out. In reality, the defense needs to stop giving up the big play. It’s OK to […]

What Do You Want To See? Maryland

I didn’t realize OSU was idle this week. Oh wait, they play Maryland. Just as good as being off, I guess. The Terps really, um, well … they are not good. This is just what the Buckeyes need to get things ramped up. Coach Urban Meyer said he thinks the team is close to breaking […]

Are You Not Entertained? Indiana

Just waiting for Ohio State’s complete team to show up. When the offense is clicking, the defense forgets how to play. When the defense is stingy, the offense stinks. Look at the Indiana game. The defense held the Hoosiers to 10 points in the first half but the OSU offense mustered six points. In the […]
