Sunday Morning Coffee: October 07, 1922

The large man stood at the window of his room that overlooked South High Street, not so far from the State Capital. He had risen early as he always did to run up to the Ohio State University Campus, and around the track of the new stadium, before returning to his room at the ‘Turner […]

Making The List: Dr. Glyn Meyrick

With the Olympics in Rio almost upon us and all of the wondrous bliss for a sports junkie that it offers I am encouraged by a recent article I wrote on Nate Ebner and his making of Team USA for Rugby 7’s. I have come to enjoy this game with tremendous enthusiasm. My intent in […]

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 […]

Making The List: Peter “Pete” George

In our pursuit to bring to focus some of the great past names of athletics from The Ohio State University in Making the List, often names are missed – even intended to bring out at another time … but the grand tool of forgetfulness arrives and good intent vanishes as it arrives to another worthy […]

Nate Ebner Heading To Rio On Usa Men’s Rugby 7’s Team

No so long after announcing his return to the New England Patriots in a two-year extension deal that lands him a million-plus each year Nate Ebner will be missing training camp this summer as he heads to Brazil as a member of the USA Rugby Team. Bill Belichick, Ebner recalls, was welcoming of his pursuit […]

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 […]

Making The List: Jim Reeder

This week let’s journey into baseball. The Buckeyes had some fantastic players in the wondrous world played on a diamond. Thus far in our journey to bring back a focus on past athletes from The Ohio State University – in baseball – we took a look at Frank Howard (also a basketball star) and Nick […]

Making The List: Mark Coleman

For this week’s Making the List I have decided to have some fun. There are so many Buckeyes in a host of sports that have been great in the sport of which they participated that are deserving of recognition. Some of these great athletes slide from the notice they justifiably have earned behind some of […]

TBBC Roundtable: What Does Independence Day Mean To Me

TBBC wants to wish everyone a very Happy Independence Day and hope it’s the most enjoyable day possible. We like roundtables around these parts and sometimes like to express our own feelings, shocking I know, but we have a great love for our country and the freedoms we have because of the brave who have […]

Let’s Talk Ohio State Women’s Rugby in 2016

The summer is here. We all feel the heat.  It will only get hotter.  Relief is seemingly only found in a swift dive into a pool, or an ice cold drink (preferably pool side).  The sports of choice to engage in, either watching or playing is baseball, or softball. But I have a hint of […]

Making The List: Glenn Ashby Davis

The Olympics in Rio de Janeiro will soon be upon us. The World will be watching. National pride will be at feverish pitches – everywhere – all over the globe. Personally when I think of the Summer Olympics I think of Track and Field. This summarizes why I feel the importance to pick a great […]

How To Kill Time Between Seasons

There’s nothing better than being a sports fan.  Unfortunately, there are very few sports that run throughout the entire year.  When you have downtime between seasons, you might find yourself without entertainment.  Next time you face an off-season, you might want to consider one of the options below.   Focus on the Minors If you’re […]

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 […]

Making The List: William “Bill” Smith

There are many routes we could take this week for Making the List. But summer’s sweltering heat has me thinking of a pool, or more specifically, swimming. I previously mentioned two Great Buckeyes in the swimmers category, Yoshi Oyakawa, and legendary coach Mike Pepe. I do know that the Buckeyes had many great swimmers in […]

Making The List: Doug Beal

This week we will honor the Men’s Volleyball Program. They are the 2016 National Champions. So I find a necessity to honor one of the Greats of The Ohio State University Volleyball Program – and there is indeed quite a few I could choose from. Since 1968, the Ohio State men’s volleyball team has been […]

Thank You Ken Kohl

I find it necessary to write about one of tBBC’s own. By no means is it a fluff piece of back-patting of colleagues. Of recent a colleague of ours here at tBBC retired – bringing a well deserved focus on himself and his family. Ken was a great colleague and in my case mentor. Ken […]

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 […]
