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 […]

The CFB #3 Ohio State Buckeyes B1G East (8-0, 4-0) took on the Golden Gophers B1G West (4-4, 1-3). Ohio State demolished Rutgers 49-7* in their previous game while Minnesota red zone offense lollygagged their way to a loss against Michigan 26-29 last week. Even without Minnesota’s Coach Jerry, for the Buckeyes, this was still […]

He’s also a College Football Hall of Famer, and in my opinion, the best player not to be elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
#2 on our countdown is the leader of the infamous “Orange Crush” Defense, Randy Gradishar.
This week we’re counting down the greatest Buckeye linebackers of all time. Number 3 on our Top Five this week is the 2006 Nagurski Award winner as the best defensive player in the country and was also a three-time All-American.

Here we are, the 1st Championship via the CFB Playoffs. Here was #2 Oregon playing #4 Ohio State for THE championship. Did it follow the script of the last time these teams met, the 2010 Rose Bowl? We have a winner, as Ohio State overcame 4 turnovers to beat Oregon 42-20 to claim the National […]
I have a few additional thoughts about Saturday’s win in the Big Ten Championship game. To be blunt; this was an epic ass-kicking. Wisconsin was never in this game. Ohio State’s starters and relievers pitched a shut-out, 59-0. It was truly, a satisfying game. I admit that I’d projected WI to sneak out a 3-4 point […]

Before we get started, let’s […]
The wait is now under 3 weeks. In fact, we are exactly 17 days away from the Buckeyes kicking off 2014 in Baltimore against Navy. The most asked question going around seems to be “So, how do you think they’ll do this year?” I’ve thought about it over and over, and I keep coming up […]
