Silver Bullet Points Comes Out Of Its Shell

No, it’s not time for the IlliBuck trophy again… Tuesday’s “news” was full of terrapin conversation, so we go where it leads. As such, here’s this morning’s soundtrack… I’m sure my folks will recognize it. Buckeye 411 Urban Legend- The world was a twitter yesterday with news that Urban Meyer had revealed that Woody Hayes […]

The Day That Were- B1G Style

Slight variation in schedule… think of this as TWTW meets Wednesday’s regular SBP.  Here’s the tunes behind the guy behind the guy. 2013 started almost the same way that every other year has started since I can remember… with a slate of B1G Ten games, highlighting how many people who live in the midwest want […]

Wednesday Night Rumble: Shocking!

I’m still basking in the glow of 12-0. And more importantly, I continue to cherish the win over Michigan and think about it every day. I didn’t realize how much the 2011 game impacted me until this week. To see them lose to TTUN after everything that happened to them in 2011, while playing maybe […]

Silver Bullet Points Looks For Recognition

Not gonna lie… got a pretty mellow vibe for this week’s updates. Buckeye 411 Time For Trophies- Now that the season is over, it’s time to start handing out gold stars and stickers for the best of the best, and Monday/Tuesday were B1G All Conference Awards, or as we like to call them- the “Ohio […]

B1G Life, B1G Stage: B1G Review-Week 12

Aside from the Ohio State-Wisconsin overtime thriller, it was a pretty boring week across the Big Ten stage. But, now it is the week of “The Game,” so nothing else really matters. The Buckeyes defeated the Badgers 21-14 in overtime to move to 11-0 on the season, and have officially won the Leaders Division outright. […]

B1G Life, B1G Stage: B1G Review- Week Eleven

Ohio State did not play on Saturday, but believe it or not, there were other games played around the Big Ten conference. Some of them actually meant something too. The best game of the weekend was played in Ann Arbor as Michigan scored a 38-31 overtime victory against Northwestern. The Wolverines’ prayers were answered as […]

B1G Life, B1G Stage: B1G Review- Week Ten

As rough of a year as it has been for the Big Ten, the conference currently has the only team in the country with ten wins. After Ohio State’s 52-22 blowout victory against Illinois, the Buckeyes moved to a perfect 10-0 on the season, becoming the first team in the country to reach double digit […]

B1G Life, B1G Stage: B1G Review- Week Nine

After five weeks of Big Ten play, only one team remains unbeaten within the conference. Ohio State has won its first five B1G contests in addition to four out of conference games to put the Buckeyes at 9-0 on the season. After a slow start, OSU cruised to a 35-23 victory against Penn State in […]

B1G Life, B1G Stage: B1G Review- Week Eight

There was no shortage of drama around the Big Ten in week eight. Ohio State-Purdue, Michigan-Michigan State and Nebraska-Northwestern all provided quality entertainment for Big Ten fans. Without its star quarterback Braxton Miller, Ohio State was able to improve to 8-0 with an improbable come-from-behind overtime victory over Purdue. We all saw the drama that […]

B1G Life, B1G Stage: B1G Review- Week 7

Raise your hand if, at the beginning of the season, you had the Northwestern Wildcats to be the first Big Ten team eligible for a bowl game. Nobody saw that one coming, even with Ohio State ineligible this year. And for the Wildcats to do it after just seven games is even more impressive. Sure, […]

B1G Life, B1G Stage: B1G Review- Weak 6

If you take a look at the Coaches Poll this week, you will not see any Big Ten teams listed. If that seems unusual to you, it should. This marks the first time in the history of the poll where no Big Ten teams are represented. Ohio State is ineligible for the Coaches poll or […]

B1G Life, B1G Stage: B1G Review-Week Five

It’s October and Big Ten football is officially here. I’ve been very critical of the Big Ten as a conference so far this season and rightfully so. September was an absolutely brutal month for the conference on a national stage. But, with the first week of conference play officially in the books, let’s take a […]

Across the Web: Sparty Edition

This week THE Buckeyes will take on the other team from up North. For this week’s Across the Web we look to our friends at, who also joined us for last year’s chat. ES took some time from his busy schedule to answer our questions on Sparty. 1. Are MSU Fans excited about William […]

B1G Life, B1G Stage: B1G Review-Week 4

Well, at least it is over. The embarrassing results to nonconference opponents that is. Most of the nonconference games for Big Ten teams have been played as we head into week five, and the results were not pretty. We continued to wait for the Big Ten teams to make a statement together as a conference, […]

B1G Life, B1G Stage: B1G Review-Week 3

I’m quickly running out of bad things to say about the Big Ten and it is only the end of week three. The Big Ten has just three undefeated teams left: Minnesota, Northwestern and Ohio State. And, with the way the rest of the conference has performed so far, Ohio State has looked like the […]

B1G Life, B1G Stage: B1G Review- Week 2

Week one was bad, but week two was much, much worse. Despite going 10-2 as a conference in the first week of the season, I wrote that the Big Ten did not look very impressive in doing so. Now, following a 6-6 mark in week two, I am even more convinced the Big Ten may […]

BBN: Three Questions From Ohio State's 2012 Signing Day

Following an epic National Letter of Intent Day at Ohio State, several of the Buckeye Blogs wanted to take a closer look at how this will all play out for the future. Be sure to check out the work at The Buckeye Blog, Buckeye House Call, Men of the Scarlet and Gray, Our Honor Defend, […]

Scarlet and Gray Q&A – Week Eleven

What is it about Ross-Ade Stadium? The stadium, with the obscenely big press box, always turns into a house of horrors when the Buckeyes take the field in on Purdue’s campus. Whatever you think plagued the scarlet and gray this past weekend, one theory that has been floated out there is the pressure of mistakes […]

Other B1G Games to Watch

  You know you go B1G on Saturday. There isn’t any denying that when it comes to good football, you can go to the West Coast and down in the South Eastern part of our country. But when it comes to competitive, back and forth football, I love me some B1G. This week pits rivals […]

Big Ten Preview: Getting Ready for a B1G Season

It’s that time of the year again folks! With the football season now a week away, it’s time to take you deep into the heart of Midwest football as we preview the Big Ten Conference.   Despite last year’s play resulting in a three way tie for the conference crown, this upcoming season in the […]
