(Thad thinks the team is getting closer) Despite the loss, I think that was a much better team performance against Purdue. Ohio State came out energized and focused, and but for a few brief minutes, held the lead throughout the 1st half. The shooting was stellar: 52% from the field, 67% from long range (thanks […]
The Buckeyes kicked off the defense of their 2013 Big Ten Tournament Championship by playing Purdue this afternoon. The winner (5th seed Ohio State/12th seed Purdue) plays 4th seeded Nebraska to morrow afternoon. Well, OSU got past the first hurdle by beating a very tenacious Purdue team, 63-61. Ohio State held a narrow half-time margin […]
OK folks, we’re going to try something a bit different this afternoon. Eric is out of town on some Very Important Business so I’ll be holding down the fort: Assuming Ohio State beats Purdue (I don’t want to think of an alternative outcome), we’ll be back here tomorrow afternoon at approximately the same time. […]
The Boilermakers visited the Buckeyes this evening in Columbus for the return match of their two game series. Despite a slow start, and a bit of back and forth play, the game was all Ohio State as the Buckeyes secured the 67-49 victory. Surprisingly, LaQuinton Ross led the Buckeyes in scoring with 17 points, closely […]

It’s time for the B1G Conference season! The Buckeyes are travelling to West Lafayette to take on the Purdue Boilermakers. The game is scheduled to start at 1:00 PM Eastern. Stop by and chat with us during the game! Go Bucks!
Ross-Aide stadium has been a house of horrors for the Buckeyes in recent years, but it was as friendly a home they could have found outside of Columbus today. Ohio State rode their momentum from the Penn State game last week straight through Purdue on their way to a 56-0 shutout victory and their 21st […]

The Buckeyes visited West Lafayette this evening and left Mackey Arena with a 74-64 win over Purdue and Thad Matta’s 100th conference victory. The Bucks used good shot selection and high-energy hustle to grab the lead and never relinquish it again. The Buckeyes rode the scoring of DeShaun Thomas again, who picked up 22 points […]
The Buckeyes and Boilermakers are both coming off rough losses on the road. Unfortunately, Purdue gets the home-court advantage in tonight’s meeting. Joining us for tonight’s game are our friends from the BBN: The Buckeye Blog, Buckeye Empire, Men of the Scarlet and Gray, and Buckeye Ninja. Make sure to swing by their place and […]
Let’s not beat around the bush here. Ohio State got it handed to them by Illinois on Saturday afternoon. The Buckeyes came out sluggish and were not ready to play as they fell to the Illini,74-55. Things in the Big Ten are not easy this season, least of all games played on the road. After […]
Jason Air it out. Well, Braxton did some work on the passing game, and probably would have thrown more passes than he has in any game all season if he hadn’t gotten hurt. Considering Guiton tossed 10 (not counting his spike), that matches up fairly well. The obvious… The defense actually did a pretty damn […]

It was bound to happen eventually, but the Buckeyes evaded it. The Purdue Boilermakers came in with exactly the right gameplan to attack the Buckeyes. They attacked the edge all day against the OSU defense and found easy yardage when they did so. They also used good line and linebacker play to help shutdown the […]
Ohio State comes home to Columbus to face Purdue, who have beaten them in two of their last three meetings. While you wait, check out the great members of the BBN: Our Honor Defend, Men of the Scarlet and Gray, Buckeye Empire, Silver Bullet, The Buckeye Blog, Unscripted Ohio, and Fox Sports Ohio.
Jason Air it out. I’d like to see Braxton Miller get back to work on the passing game. Test Purdue’s corners with some shots deep. The obvious… All around improvement on defense. Special Teams keep being special. Return a kick/punt, block a punt of field goal, special teams keep having an impact. It’s contagious and, […]
Against our better sensibilities, we’ve turned once again to the gentlemen at Boiled Sports for a nice fireside chat about this week’s matchup. Not only are they experts on all things Black and Gold, but they also make a very very tasty s’more… win/win, as far as we’re concerned. What is it about playing the […]
The following is a sponsored post by our friends at TiqIQ… Saturday may be your best chance this season to see a game in the ‘Shoe! On paper, the chances Purdue this weekend pulls off its first win against Ohio State in Columbus since 1988 seem slim. Despite a recent string of success for Purdue […]
There are some things in sports that just don’t make sense. Purdue beating Ohio State in football is one of those things. But don’t tell the Boilermakers (3-3, 0-2) that. Two of the last three times these teams have met, Purdue has come away with the victory. Last year’s gut-wrenching 26-23 overtime loss to the […]
