Harbaugh Wants to Clear The Air

On Jim Harbaugh’s radio show Tuesday night he seemingly had a need to clear the air. The second segment of his show the TTUN coach was asked if there was anything he wanted to address: He did – of course! The world of College Football has been buzzing (Thank God for YouTube) after TTUN spanked […]

Rumblin’, Stumblin’, Bumblin’: Pre-Season Edition

There hasn’t been a lot happening that could motivate me to go to town like I usually do in this weekly article. First let me say that it’s great being back with the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly that is Ohio State football. Of course I let the gang get involved and they have […]


Around the B1G: Week 1 Edition

We will have waited a painstakingly horrible 246 days from the time we saw the Ohio State Buckeyes leave the field against Notre Dame until we see them come through the tunnel against Bowling Green.  The horror that is known as the off-season is over! Now is the time of year where we sit back […]

Sunday Morning Coffee: November 06, 1920

Gaylord Stinchcomb, the consensus All-American halfback for the Buckeyes, had just stepped from his dorms at the German House on West 11th. He stood momentarily looking toward the darkening sky as the threat of rain appeared imminent. It was just a few days following the Presidential elections in which two Ohioans were the top of […]


Sunday Morning Coffee: October 26, 1919

The Sunday morning breeze was brisk. A settling of coldness had dropped anchor on the region – hovering just a degree or two above the freezing mark. Quietness had descended in the early morning hours, only a distant rumbling of nature, a whisking wind, or a car not so near, managed to eke any semblance […]

TTUN Beware: It’s All in the Eyes

I have no idea why I even care … or is it more of grinding glass dust into the whiny eyes of the opposition? But, frankly, the opposition is Northwestern, Penn State, Indiana, and Illinois, so on and on. What I speak of here is the enemy – TTUN…the rodents of the road-kill state … […]

Rumblin’, Stumblin’, Bumblin’: Grilled Weasel

It amazes me how motivating a loss can be and at the same time maybe Urban Meyer is just better at motivating players when they’re the underdogs. Let’s face it, the Buckeyes have won a lot of games in both respects and all it does is cement his legend when it comes to coaching in […]


2nd Thoughts: The Game

(I think that Urban is addressing you) Well, that was satisfying, wasn’t it? After looking “flat” the previous week in their loss to Michigan State, the Buckeyes looked potent in their demolition on the Wolverines, 42-13. The defense continued its high level play against Michigan, and as you saw, the offense looked the way we’ve […]


TBBC Awards: Roasted Wolverine

I cannot think of a better way to wash the bad taste out of our mouths than beating the crap out of TTUN. I would like to win it all again, but the Buckeyes are on the outside looking in right now. They don’t have any magic up their sleeves as they wait for help […]

Secondary Market Ticket Prices Drop Immediately After Buckeyes Loss

As the game-winning field goal headed towards the uprights at Ohio Stadium, the Michigan State Spartans dashed both the Buckeyes’ and the Michigan Wolverines’ chances of heading to the College Football Playoff. With a soft schedule, the Buckeyes will not overcome the one loss as they will not play in the Big Ten Championship game […]
