Tuesday’s news gave us two hall of fame suggestions for today’s sountrack(s).  And no, it’s not Christmas music- we’ll get to that later. Buckeye 411 Major Awards- It’s the silly season for College Football, and sure enough America’s favorite collegiate popularity contest machine has decided to include some Buckeyes as a reward for the undefeated […]

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Silver Bullet Points

Interesting Tuesday in college sports, to say the least. We’ll get to all the movers and shakers, but first a little traveling music. Buckeye 411 Out In The Cold- Monday’s Heisman announcement that Braxton Miller would not be getting an invite to the Downtown Athletic Club in New York spurred a mixed bag of emotions […]

The Week That Were: 12.1.12

Getting ready for the next phase of college fandom, that wonderful world filled with gifts of college hoops and bowl catastophies. As such, here’s the soundtrack for this week’s look back. Robert Frost once said, “Nothing Gold can stay”; and so, another leaf turns and this college football season comes to a close. Before we […]

The Week That Were: 11.10.12

Oh, college football… How I love you!! Well, that happened. While a lot of people were saying that Alabama was ripe for a loss against a Texas A&M team that’s been playing really well over the past few weeks, most of this felt like lip service. You know, the kind of things that ESPN makes […]

This… Is… Silver Bullet Points

Silver Bullet Points Is Appealing

It’s your regularly scheduled look around the world of college sports- a bit more in depth than the tidbits we’ve got after practice. Following Tuesday’s notes, be sure to check the latest on “reform” from the NCAA and thoughts on Penn State’s constant appeals processes. Buckeye 411 Not So Fast…  Any speculation about Roby playing […]

We're Talking Playoffs: College Football's New Reality

Or, as it’s also known, “Now we have a different thing to argue about”. Today, the presidents of the BCS conferences announced that they’d come to an agreement regarding the terms and conditions of a “four team event” beginning the fall season of 2014. If you’ll remember, we argued for playoffs for a long time […]

Silver Bullet Points Gets Bombed

It’s Wednesday, halfway to what’s sure to be another glorious June weekend. Big thanks to “Darth Grant” for finding the inspiration for this week’s title and lead photo- Eric may have some more on this story a bit later in the summer, but for now, here’s one of the men behind that amazing flying machine. […]

Silver Bullet Points To The Money

Silver Bullet Points Reads Up

With the “off season” (or as Urban calls it- “Hunting Season”) upon us, SBP takes a bit of a different twist. Usually focused on news and updates from OSU press conferences and weekly preparation, during the off season, we’ll use this spot to affirm my ADD and help you stay on top of news from […]

2012 BCS National Championship: The Castaways

Updating an earlier post… Well, here we are, on the cusp of the “Hyperbole Bowl!!!1!1!!”. Alabama -vs- LSU; the game so great it had to be played twice. Granted, both LSU and Alabama are amazing teams, and deserve their top rankings. Each program is led by a coach that has won a national championship; with […]

One Fan's Opinion: Why I May Just Give Up On College Football

Today marks the sacred celebration of Festivus, so we here at tBBC have been prepping for the Feats of Strength- JoeD used to wrestle, Rob and Jason have Buckeye football backgrounds, but my money’s on Jim… I think he brings a ton of tenacity to the table. Anyway, another important Festivus tradition is the “Airing […]

tBBC Goes Bowling!!!

Ah, the most wonderful time of the year.  As if you needed an excuse to sit around and watch football, having it on eleventy days of the week means that you’ve got a built in excuse to avoid certain members of your family and drown out your kids’ “holiday pageant rehearsal” noise. ‘Cause, really… how […]

Justice, Alabama, and the BCS: Part 2

This is the continuation of the article posted this morning looking at a solution to the current problems. Many people have spilled an incredible amount of ink over the years trying to determine a just system for selecting a national champion.  Our own Malibuckeye came up with his own system a while back and expounded […]

Justice, Alabama, and the BCS: Part 1

This is the first of a two part article on this year’s BCS problems. When you think of justice it obviously brings to mind the concepts of the court of law, lady justice, and a jury of your peers. Rarely do people consider justice in college football. They may use words like “fair” and “just” […]

The Week That Were: "Championship" Week

For the last TWTW of the season, I was digging deep for musical inspiration.

One Fan's Opinion: Oklahoma State Deserves Title Shot

With all the BS surrounding today’s BCS decision, we thought it would be a good idea to get a different perspective from someone who’s case is not being shoved down our throats clearly articulated from Bristol. For that, we turn to our Big Integer correspondent… I’m a man and not quite 40, and last night […]

The Week That Were: 11.19.11

After yesterday’s slate of games, the soundtrack for this episode should be pretty obvious.  Onward! Ain’t chaos beautiful?  While the end result may be less than desirable, you’ve got to be amazed at the ways that each week is different, each week has the possibility for the unexpected and amazing.  And this week was proof […]

The Week That Were: 10.22.11

There are lots of options for today’s soundtrack, but I’m going with this one for reasons that should be clear later. Apologies for the tardiness of this week’s recap…  you say “bye week”, I say “rock climbing trip to the beach“. So, yeah… I didn’t get to see what might be the play of the […]
