The Week That Were: 9.20.14

Welcome back from the “off week”… hope you got your to-do list whittled down and all the boxes checked.

ESPN’s “power poll” includes only SEC teams, […]

B1G Suspends Noah Spence

Notable in his absence from Orange Bowl prep this week, the reports were that Noah Spence had violated a team rule and was working his way back into the good graces of the team with hopes that he would rejoin the Buckeyes in time to face Clemson. Today, however, those hopes were dissolved, as it […]

What Do You Want To See On Saturday? B1G Championship

Well we move on from THE game to the B1G game.  Let’s see what our staff has in store for us this week: Ken Offense – Mistake-free (turnovers/penalties) game. MSU brings as good a defense as you’ll find; points will be hard to come by. Offense (again) – An efficient passing day from Brax & his receivers. […]

Across The Web: THE GAME

If it’s Thanksgiving week, it’s time for our yearly check in with That Blogger Up North, Yost from the often hilarious and occasionally comprehensible MZone. Before I got started writing, Yost’s was the only “enemy” site that I visited regularly; my “career” is mostly “Hell, if he can do it, anyone can…”.  We were able […]

tBBC Basketball Pre-Conference Roundtable: IU, Purdue, MSU

The next session of roundtable participants is a dandy and we’re privileged to have them with us! Our longtime friend who always takes time to help us out is Purdue graduate Adam Johnson who is the lead writer for the Crimson Quarry representing the Hoosiers;

tBBC Pick 'Em: Week Five

OK, I’m starting to feel a little nauseated. This pick ‘em thing is not working out like I planned. I’m losing. Of course I expected to win. Who expects to lose other than the Tampa Bay Buccaneers? Let’s recap our last week of picks, which was two weeks ago. Took a week off to attend […]

tBBC Basketball Pre-Season Roundtable: NW, PSU and Wisconsin

Even though football is in full swing, the B1G is a hoops conference as well. As we love to do around these parts, we place some calls to our blogging friends around the B1G country and ask them some questions about their upcoming teams. I have invited some writers that we’ve had here before in

tBBC Pick 'Em: Week Three

I guess my sarcasm didn’t get me very far last week. Gary had a solid week of picking, hitting on all the games except Illinois-Nebraska. I thought I was safe with Penn State over Indiana. Really, Nittany Lions? And Iowa let me down too. Still a long way to go and we have some fun […]

One Fan's Opinion: Why The MAC Matters

Our friend Patrick rejoins us for a perspective on the B1G’s conference strength. Remember, if you think you’ve got what it takes to entertain and educate the masses, let us know! When most national sports writers speak about schools dethroning the SEC’s run of seven straight national championships, the usual suspects are identified; Oregon, Stanford, […]

Beat The Heat With Silver Bullet Points

Now that the rain has subsided, maybe the Buckeye State can enjoy the summer sunshine and higher temperatures… or as we call it in Los Angeles, “Wednesday”. Today’s soundtrack hearkens back to the halcyon days of the 80’s, before I had to actually pay for air conditioning. Back then, I thought that a Power Station […]
