We’re getting close to kickoff time and with the start of the regular season comes anticipation of The Game. So with that in mind, let’s celebrate the No. 3, the margin of victory in The Game of the Century: OSU 42, Michigan 39 on Nov. 18, 2006. OSU came in No. 1 in every poll. Michigan […]

tBBC Kickoff Countdown Celebrates 14

In today’s edition, we celebrate number 14, the Ohio State’s margin of victory over Notre Dame in the 2006 Fiesta Bowl on January 1st, 2006, 34-20. This game matched up Big Game Girth Charlie Weiss against the plodding, we’ll-get-there-eventually Buckeyes under Jim Tressel. Ohio State managed to plod their way to 617 total yards. Quite a […]

tBBC Kickoff Countdown Celebrates 25

The most important game of the season for any Ohio State fan or player is the annual season ending showdown against Michigan.  Over the years the two teams have produced numerous unforgettable games with conference or national titles on the line and the 2005 showdown between 9th ranked Ohio State and 17th ranked Michigan was […]

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 […]

TBBC Kickoff Countdown Celebrates 76

The Buckeyes and Gophers played to 14-14 halftime at but Ohio State pulled away with 28 2nd half points. Antonio Pittman (186 yds, 2 TD’s) and […]

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 […]

"The Catch" enters the countdown

Ah, Anthony Gonzalez….we do love you so. The picture you see here was taken in the first two minutes of the game in 2004. The struggling Buckeyes were not expected to do much against #7 Michigan, but nobody told that to the boys in the uniforms. Gonzalez caught a 68-yard pass early on for a […]

Antonio Pittman and Carlos Snow are late

25 days left until college football season begins in Columbus! Our two heroes today are well known for their rushing expertise. Both are in the Top 10 for Ohio State all-time rushing yards. We bring you Antonio Pittman and Carlos Snow! I’ve persoanlly seen both of them in action, and I honestly don’t know which […]

Lydell Ross is your friend

Being a running back for the Ohio State Buckeyes this decade was certainly interesting. It always had it’s highs, and it had it’s lows. But it was always interesting. Especially for our RBs, it was either sink or swim, and you know who the swimmers were. On the field, they carried the names of Beanie, […]

Raymont Harris – Day #34

Raymont Harris graduated from the Ohio State University in the Top 5 of all-time Buckeye running backs. His 2,649 yards were mostly from bowling over defenders, and generally proving the cliche’ about “running downhill”. Since his departure from Columbus, five more backs have since passed him on the all-time yardage list (Eddie George, Pepe Pearson, […]

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 […]

Tressel nearly outsmarted himself

I’ve spent the last few hours contemplating my thoughts on the game, and I came to one conclusion. Jim Tressel tried so hard to NOT show anything new to Michigan, and he nearly got bit in the ass for it. We went up 17-0 at halftime and we were cruising to another blowout victory. Then, […]

Answering MotSaG questions

Every week, the gang at Men Of The Scarlet And Gray ask a few questions, to get predictions from their experts on what will happen in that weekend’s game. Since I’m a staff of one, I can only ask myself questions. Last time I got caught doing that, some nice men in white showed up […]
