tBBC Kickoff Countdown Celebrates 46

In today’s edition, we celebrate number 46, an Ohio State victory over TTUN  on  November 19th, 2005, 25-21. I could have selected another OSU win over TTUN, but the dynamics of this one are so satisfying. The Buckeyes capped off a 9-2 regular season with another beating of Michigan, this time at Ann Arbor.  The […]

What to do in an offseason like this one…How about going to the gym?

As both Freddie Mercury and Roger Waters said many times, the show must go on.  While Buckeye Nation can’t really move on from the current situation with the football program just yet, certainly the individual players on the team must attend to business as usual.  And when you’re a Big Ten football player, business as […]

Top 25 Buckeyes of the Decade: #17 Anthony Gonzalez

Buckeyes In The Fantasy World

If you’re like most football fans you probably play some form of fantasy football.  It gives me the ability to have a rooting interest in any NFL game I watch.  I also like to have hometown players on my team but since I live in Cleveland that’s not such a good idea.  So if you’re […]

Bobby Carpenter is going to eat your lunch

Is was just a few short years ago that a trio of linebackers roamed the middle of our defense, and they were vicious. A.J. Hawk, Anthony Schlegel, and today’s hero, Bobby Carpenter. These three were easily the best batch of men to play LB at the same time for Ohio State (although we’re pretty sure […]

Domination, 4-for-4, and some cool stats

First of all, we completely dominated today’s game. That much is obvious. Had you told me that Ginn and Gonzalez would only have three catches each and we’d turn it over three times (twice in our own territory), I would have NEVER guessed a 44-0 final score. Ohio State and Michigan have now played four […]

Complete and total domination

Seriously, THAT was the #13 team in the NCAA? They looked like they were foundering on every drive except two (it seems like our boys give up 2 good drives a game…out of 11-14, I’ll take it!). While a lot of Buckeye blogs are hyping up Gonzo’s catch-and-run-and-run-the-wrong-way -and-run-and-how-the-hell-did-he-score, I’ve got to say the most […]

Iowa's biggest weakness

Jim Tressel and company does not need me to tell them what Iowa’s weaknesses are. They already know. But since I did the research, I’d better spread the knowledge, because who knows….maybe one of my readers has no idea what that weakness might be. It’s their run defense. Iowa is not capable of slowing down […]

This is going to be a long, difficult season

With all the hype over Ohio State’s quest for a National Championship in 2006, I spent some time today thinking about how it all relates to the 2002 season. And I’ve gotta tell you, there is very little comparison. Sure, there’s the obvious similarities. But most of the time, we’ve gotta actually LOOK for the […]
