The Week That Were: 10.15.11

Today, we join with racing fans in mourning the loss of Indianapolis 500 champion Dan Wheldon. As such, this week’s soundtrack has a bit of a somber tone. We give ESPN/ABC a lot of criticism, but they got this one right– Thoughts and prayers with his family and friends. This week was very very special […]

The Week That Were- 9.17.11

Well, after a loss there really is only one choice for this week’s soundtrack… Just be thankful I didn’t go all Broadway on you.

Silver Bullet Points Is Speedy

Quick notes for a Thursday: Buckeyes Incoming freshman Ejuan Price has asked for his release from Ohio State. Even up until signing day, there were people who didn’t know if he’d end up in Columbus, so this may not be all that much of a surprise. It’s assumed that he will end up at Pitt, […]

Buckeye Battlecry Roundtable: Media Frenzy

Fourth installment of our Q&A regarding the recent happenings in Columbus- today’s question was also put to our team before all of the events of this week, and should be viewed as such: Question- Why do you think this story has gotten more media coverage and “energy” than the ones at Auburn, Oregon, or earlier […]

Barbarians At The Gate: Decline and Fall?

Look to the past and remember no empire rises that sooner or later won’t fall.– Al Stewart This is the summer of our discontent- the dreaded “off season” that brings with it a lack of coverage for stories about life on the field, and instead finds the 24 hour news cycle filled with rumor, speculation, […]

And In Other News…

Remember that “interesting” couple of months we were talking about? Yup… Just call us “Nostradamus” (although, it should be noted, we’d have cut the whole “Tresselmania” thing off at the knees if we had a premonition). So the latest shenanigans in college sports are pretty big- the Feds are investigating former coaches and players at […]

More is better… but at what cost?

ESPN has a great piece about the oversigning phenomenon in college football; for example having 20 scholarships, but getting commitments from more than 20 incoming students and either realizing the recruit won’t make it through admissions, or finding a way to open up a scholarship from a player currently on the roster. Check out the […]

NCAA Reinstates Cam Newton

We’ve been pretty honest hereabouts with our frustrations regarding the NCAA; they make mountains out of molehills and vice versa. There’s a tendency to hold FCS, D2, and D3 schools more accountable than schools in the FBS, particularly the BCS schools; as the saying goes, follow the money. Most recently, this has been illuminated in […]

Silver Bullet Points Looks Ahead

The Week That Were: 10.23.10

In the spirit of Homecoming, here’s this week’s musical selection. Congrats to Ohio State’s new royalty– I apologize if your reign is rudely interrupted. Columbus wasn’t the only college town named after Spanish explorers that was celebrating “Fleecing Forgetful Alumni Weekend” (so named by a friend who works in alumni relations- it’s amazing how the […]

The Week That Were- 9.18.10

This is being written on September 19th… that’s right, “International Talk Like A Pirate Day“. So, who better to lead us into this weeks’ recap than everyone’s favorite buccaneer, Mike Leach: Of course, to get the full effect of the day, you’ll need to use the Pirate Translator for this webpage. Avast! Speaking of Pirates, […]

The Week That Were: 9.26.09

Finishing what Jeff started, as we do every week. Here’s this week’s soundtrack/music to piss off the people in the cubicle next to you. Every season, there’s one or two weeks that just screw up everything. From the Vegas lines, to the “pundit’s choices”, to alumni plans for Bowl Game Tailgating, and even the coaching […]
