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 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 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 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 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 […]

Let’s dive in to see how things worked out for the lads.   MaliBuckeye 12 Gauge Time: It wasn’t magical, it was barely functional. Of 66 snaps, he had 3 productive plays. But, hey, OSU won.

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 […]
