OSU clamps down, wins on road

Stingy defense and a 20-6 spurt in the second half allowed the Ohio State Buckeyes to overcome an ugly first half and beat host Illinois 48-39 on Saturday.

Not for everyone, but for fanbases who entered Saturday with significant postseason aspirations, the doors gently […]

Pick 'Em- It's Almost Over

After 90 picks, tBBC’s pick ‘em between Gary and myself has come down to the final week. With our contest deadlocked, we will pick the winners of Saturday’s games and use the total points scored in the B1G championship game as the tiebreaker.

Ohio State News And Notes: Silver Bullet Points 12.3.13

And The Chase Continues… Sparty in his Sights-Urban Meyer was very business like in his weekly press conference on Monday.

Pick 'em: Who wants to win?

We’ve got two weeks left. The question is “who wants it?” Gary started out on fire while I stunk up the place. But I have managed to close the gap the last couple weeks and one game separates us thanks to my brilliance the last half of the season. Recapping last week, Gary went 3-2, […]

Are You Not Entertained? Iowa

The Buckeyes survived a scare from Iowa in a 34-24 victory, but did our wishes survive? Ken Run Stopper – Iowa averages >200 yards rushing per game, 104 by Mark Weisman.

Buckeye 411 Injury Update- Tommy Schutt is indeed back in the rotation, and Jordan Hall is healthy enough to see time on special teams.  One interesting note from Wednesday Afternoon- […]

They say tying is like kissing your sister. Pucker up. That’s where we stand after one week of our head-to-head pick.
