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 […]

Sunday Morning Coffee: October 19, 1919

The young man exited the house at 970 Oak Street at exactly six-thirty in the morning. A chill was in the air – the cloudiness simmered any attempts of the sun’s brightness from unlocking any hopes of a nicer day. The young man buttoned up the brown wool jacket he had just slipped his arms […]

Sunday Morning Coffee: October 15, 1916

The wind whistled sharply as the sun began to rise on this crisp Sunday morning. John Wilce rolled over from his slumber, having not slept well at all. His night had been dominated with recalling the day before.  It had indeed been an event. “Coffee?” He whispered to his sleeping wife, Minerva, who had the blanket […]

Sunday Morning Coffee: May 04, 1890

The Sunday morning breeze blasted through the untidy room. The sun’s brightness also began its commanding appearance. It shone directly onto the face of Alexander Lilley, who rolled to his side in an attempt to rid the nuisance and gather a few extra moments of sleep. He knew he’d be hearing a knock soon enough […]

What If Lebron Had Been A Buckeye?

I must confess I love fantasy pieces. I am not necessarily speaking of ‘Star Wars’ and space adventures or some of the gothic stuff, or even comic books. I am speaking of sports fantasy. Every year I envision the Buckeyes winning the National Title in football, basketball (Men’s and Women’s), rugby, track and field… and […]

The Buckeyes Football Challenge

Okay – all of you OSU Football know-it-alls the moment is upon you. The challenge I lay before you is twenty questions reference The Ohio State University and their storied football program. The questions I chose arguably could have been better – even worse. But the questions remain. Just how good are you? The answers […]

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 … […]

It’s time for me …

(Image courtesy of golfwrx.com) … to ‘play through’. I was a reader/commentator at tBBC seemingly from the “olde tymes’. It’s been three and a half years since I was invited to be on the Staff at the Buckeye Battle Cry and have been a co/associate editor for some while. For me, it has been an […]

The False Prophecy Of Jimbo

10-3 in the first year at TTUN. 39-24 college record overall – which includes Stanford and the University of San Diego. Signed as the 2nd highest paid college coach in all of the NCAA at $7,000,400 per year; that comes to $700,040 per victory. I speak of Jim Harbaugh – TTUN’s Head Coach. Yep! The […]

Let’s talk Men’s Basketball

.. for a minute. Or two. (Thad knows what I’m talking about.) Ohio State men’s basketball just endured a season that certainly wasn’t the best of times, nor was it the worst of times. It was a season that, if we were sane and realistic with ourselves, was what we expected. Before I get into […]

Talking 10 Trolls Ohio State.. again

.. and still can’t get it right. (Image courtesy gizmodo.com) I had a little article brought to my attention on Thursday. Basically, Andy weaves a tale with what appear to be two story lines; the first story is to create a context  for his second story, which is the real story. First Fable Andy starts […]

Trolling and Click Baiting: Part 2

Urban is looking at you. (Image courtesy of campusinsiders.com) Welcome back to Episode 2, where we cover “trolling for the sake of trolling”. Today’s topic is how Andy felt, or at least stated, that Ohio State had it’s lunch eaten by Michigan and Michigan State regarding Army All-American Bowl commitments. Per the writer: Just how […]

Concern Trolling and (Click) Baiting; Part 1

(Yeah, Urban is talking to you) I came across, or rather had referred to me, two articles written by a fellow Big Ten blogger. One article dealt with the upcoming challenge to Ohio State and Urban’s “next man up” approach with coaching. I’ll address that specific article here and address the second article later in […]

tBBC 2016 Resolutions: It’s Not About Us

(Image courtesy of fotolia.com) It’s the time of year where people make New Year Resolutions for the upcoming year. These usually take the form of promises/commitments/desires for self improvement. Several writers have offered up resolutions for the New Year, but our format will be a bit different. It’s not that we don’t recognize the need […]

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 […]
