Random thoughts as the season approaches

Some random thoughts floating around my skull tonight…… —————- The Buckeyes have a LOT to live up to this year, and it’s much much more than a fifth straight Big Ten title and another crack at a big BCS bowl game. Ohio State is more than just the champions of this league four straight years. […]

Ohio State picked to win 5th straight Big Ten title

Big Ten media days are happening as we speak (my cell phone’s twitter feed won’t stop chirping. Jason at 11 Warriors is a busy boy), and the early news is all good for the Buckeyes. The writers have selected their picks for the Big Ten, and Ohio State is projected to win the conference, their […]

Why Ohio State will win the Fiesta Bowl

OK, so we’ve all seen the “teh Big Ten suuuucks” comments all over the place, and we know that nobody outside of this glorious state isn’t giving the Buckeyes a chance in hell tomorrow night.  But let’s take a step back from the bash-fest and discuss what I think will happen in Arizona.

Massive, hilarious denial at MGoBlog today

I wish I were kidding about this, but Brian at MGoBlog today has posted a story about the 2008 Michigan rushing stats that (in his mind, and in the minds of the sycophants that follow him) prove that Rich Rodriquez is succeeding at UM.

Freshman year, he got his shot after making the team as a walk-on (he was recruited by Earle Bruce, then had to fight for his spot under John Cooper). Made two HUGE catches for OSU….caught the game-winning TD against LSU in 1988 when we […]

Big Ten rankings, four weeks in

Personally, I LOVE looking over statistics, doing a little analyzing, and seeing what comes as a pleasant surprise. Since I’ve had a little extra time this week, I looked over the Big Ten rankings and found a few facts about where the Buckeyes stand through 4 games against the rest of the conference. Things that […]

This is going to be a long, difficult season

With all the hype over Ohio State’s quest for a National Championship in 2006, I spent some time today thinking about how it all relates to the 2002 season. And I’ve gotta tell you, there is very little comparison. Sure, there’s the obvious similarities. But most of the time, we’ve gotta actually LOOK for the […]
