The Week That Were: 11.29.14

Welcome to the first of December… and no, it’s not freaking time to play Christmas music yet. Here’s something more appropriate. or this, or this (Savor the ironic title)… Given the news of the last 48 hours, though, it seems a bit much to be celebrating the stupidity and amazement that comes each college football […]

What Do You Want To See On Saturday: The Game

I don’t know about you but I’ve waited all season for this game. Because *ichigan has been so bad lately, the B1G division title is not up for grabs. Ohio State already has that crown and a berth in the championship game. But a larger prize awaits: A spot in the first football playoff. The […]

Pick ‘Em: Going Through The Motions

The obese female has exercised her vocal chords. Mathematically I was still alive going into last week but I had to make my move. And I needed some help from the teams I picked. Not happening. It was actually closer than I anticipated. I took all the teams Ken picked to lose except Ohio State. […]

Roy Hall’s Top Ten Don’ts For TTUN Week

Roy Hall has been gracious enough to write out his Top Ten dont’s  for the best week in college football. It first ran in 2012 and has become a staple for this week. It’s Ohio State versus TTUN hate week and Roy tells it like it is around the players headed into this game.  The Ohio State-_ichigan […]

Pick ‘Em Whatever Week This Is: Just Shoot Me

I’m glad there are only two more weeks left. This year’s Pick ‘Em has been humbling. I stink at picking games in 2014. Of course, the teams aren’t helping me out so there’s that. In recapping last week’s wonderful display of foresight, Ken went 6-1, missing only ND over Northwestern. I followed with a 3-3 […]

The Week That Were: 11.15.14

Melvin Gordon. Melvin. Gordon. Mel. Gordo. Look, given my marital responsibilities, that’s really all I’m comfortable saying about the Wisconsin running back’s record day three quarters against Nebraska’s “Black shirt” defense in the B1G West Game of the Week. The senior (thank God) tailback’s NCAA record 408 yards were more than enough to bump the […]

The Week That Were: 11.8.14

It’s Monday, but it’s never too early to remember those who paid the price for our freedoms. They say that November is when you play for championships. That’s certainly the case when your media partner hypes your conference in such a way that your matchups in November will all be among ranked teams, right? But […]

Rumblin’, Stumblin’, Bumblin': Sparty No! Eve

I am excited for my opportunity tonight as I head to Cincinnati for an OHSAA playoff game. I know as an official that I work my tail off to get where I am and still have quite a ways to go too. I’ll have plenty of chances to improve tonight as my crew will be […]

The Week That Were: 11.1.14

Today’s soundtrack is inspired by the weather, both in Columbus and out here on the west coast… November is when Champions are made. And that starts on day one, it seems. Actually, check that- the defending champs were able to rebound from a shaky start against the Papa John’s and continue their undefeated streak. For […]

What Do You Want To See On Saturday? Illinois

From here on out, I think we all want to see Ohio State win by 60 points each week. The Buckeyes received no love at all from the playoff committee. Perhaps a pasting of Illinois and a win by Virginia Tech will help things. But before I get too far ahead of myself, OSU has […]

Week 10 Pick ‘Em: It’s About Over

OK. I have to be honest. I have a snowball’s chance. My one-year reign is about over. I’m not just going through the motions but it’s going to take a minor miracle for me to comeback and beat Ken. Short of him missing a week or doing something completely stoopid, he will probably be defending […]

Are You Not Entertained? Penn State

Whew! That’s all I have to say after a near debacle in Happy Valley. Not sure how Ohio State lost a 17-0 lead and the momentum … well, I kind of know but J.T. Barrett has been playing so well I don’t want to throw it all on him and his pick-six. But I digress. […]

Pick ‘Em Week 9: It ain’t over till it’s over

Oy. That’s about all I can say at this point. Northwestern let me down again and I sit seven games behind Ken in my quest to repeat as the Pick ‘Em champion. I’m not giving up. It ain’t over yet. But I do have my work cut out for me. Ken was perfect last week, […]

Weekend Wonderings: The James, Keeping It Local

Welcome to this week’s edition of Weekend Wonderings. The Buckeyes are hitting their stride and took another week off before preparing to host Rutgers for Homecoming. For our part, we’ll have a couple updates on The James, comment on some local, to me anyway, events and wrap it up with a song in our hearts. […]

Pick ‘Em Week 8: Free Falling

Well, I had a nice run. One year in a row. I’m about ready to throw in the white flag. But the Royals were down 7-3 in the 8th and came back to win. No reason I can’t come back and win this thang. In recapping what went down last week, Ken had a great […]
