Wednesday Night Rumble: The Road To East Lansing

The bye weeks are over, we have Buckeye football every Saturday from now until Thanksgiving and hopefully into the first week of December culminating in Indianapolis battling it out in the Big Ten Championship Game. The Buckeyes welcome Rutgers to town this weekend for a first ever meeting with the Scarlet Knights as they embark […]

Silver Bullet Points Is Ready To Battle On

Like the rest of Ohio, we’ve got Stanley Cup fever here… we’re on a series of shots and medications, but to be honest, we hope it sticks around for a while.  So, in preparation for tonight’s game, here’s a little something to help you get ready to #BeatPittsburgh. Buckeye 411 The League- Pretty good week […]

Ohio State And The NFL: Week 10

It was a rather quiet week for our former Buckeyes in the NFL. Mike Nugent continued his great season as the Bengals lost a tough one in OT to the Ravens. Nugent connected on both of his extra points and nailed a 32 yard FG. Cam Heyward led all former Bucks with 6 tackles and […]

Ohio State and the NFL: Ballin’ Buckeyes, Week Two

Week 2 of the NFL season began with a barnburner in New England and a few Buckeyes had a hand in both the Jets loss and Patriots win. Santonio Holmes improved off his week 1 numbers with 3 catches for 51 yards. Nate Ebner saw some time in the Pats defensive backfield as well on […]

Silver Bullet Points Wishes It Were A SEAL

Lots of things to catch up on… Some of this has been around for a bit, but we’re not all edgy and trendy and stuff. The Story Of The Week Although it’s not really sports related, the capture/death of Osama Bin Laden did have some ripples throughout Buckeye nation and the sports world, particularly on […]

Regular Season Review: Defensive Line

In 2009, the strength the Buckeyes was without a doubt the defensive line. They were talented, they were deep, and they were experienced. Those qualities helped Ohio State  shut down the high powered, high paced Oregon offensive attack in the Rose Bowl. It was a fitting end to a great year for the line. At […]

The Week That Were: 12.4.10

There’s no way that we can start this week’s post without wishing Happy Birthday to Coach Jim Tressel. Ironically, it’s also the day of the ninja; although I can’t imagine the silent assassins being as polite or methodical as Senior Sweatervest- how would you write “Dave” in kanji? While there were several significant games on […]

Silver Bullet Points Looks Ahead

No press conference this week, but we do have Tress’ thoughts from after The Game and so forth Buckeye 411 Award Winners- Congrats to the members of the Ohio State team who were honored with All Big Ten accolades by the conference’s coaches. The Buckeyes led the conference with ten winners, including first team Boom […]

Silver Bullet Points Spits Fire

Forged in the fire of adversity As the days grow shorter, so too do the press conferences. Here’s what we’ve got: Buckeye 411 Injury Report- No significant changes; Bryant, Moeller, and others still out. The Donnie is dressed, but Tress said he wasn’t going “live”, and probably wouldn’t be back until after Michigan week. Tress […]

Silver Bullet Points Channels Carl Spackler

Buckeye 411 Injury Report-Christian Bryant’s still in the hospital, but due home today or tomorrow (according to reports). Will be off the field for a long while, most likely the rest of the season. Pittsburgh will be missing action through the Spring, while Bell and Homan may be back after the BYE week. The Donnie […]

Thoughts from the Pressbox

We here at the Buckeye Battle Cry have been working hard at improving ourselves week after week.  The holy grail, of course, is to become recognized by our favorite University as a legitimate news organization. This season, we got lucky. Ohio State rewarded us with press passes to the Ohio University game (which Jim attended) […]

Silver Bullet Points Recovers

Buckeye 411 Injury Report- Terrelle “should be” fine, but healing. He did some light lifting on Sunday, and nothing on the off day (we’re assuming he rehabbed); today he returns to practice. Coach Tressel wondered if there’s anyone in the Big T1e1n who’s 1oo% at this point of the season. Injury Report 2- Moeller is […]

Buckeyes take out 'Canes 36-24

It was one amazing football game as the Buckeyes faced off today in the Horseshoe with the Hurricanes of Miami (FL) for the first time since their National Championship battle in January of 2003.  The game had been massively anticipated since it’s announcement several years ago and it didn’t disappoint.  Terrelle Pryor guided the Buckeyes […]

Ohio State Names Six Captains for 2010 Campaign

Official Release This is only the second time (in 121 years) that Ohio State has named six captains. They are seniors: Brian Rolle, Cameron Heyward, and Ross Homan on defense; Bryant Browning, Dane Sanzenbacher, and Brandon Saine on offense. This team has a helluva lot of quality senior leadership (they couldn’t pick just four), and […]

Fall Practice Rundown

Fall camp always seems to produce the juiciest news of the year and this year has been no different.  For the next couple weeks I will be scouring the Buckeye-sphere for all the interesting tidbits to share. So far there has been almost nothing but good news coming out of the WHAC.  Obviously the loss […]

The Evolution of Ohio State's Defense

Ohio State’s defense has consistently been one of the best in the country during Tressel’s tenure as head coach. And thank goodness for that.  Field position, solid special teams play, and a suffocating D have crushed opponents and earned Ohio State the W time after time. Even in years when the offensive fire power is… […]

Silver Bullet Points Checks In

Notables from August 5: The photo above is from our friend Josh Winslow’s gallery of the Buckeyes checking in for the start of camp.  I wonder in Miami’s offensive linemen (anyone we know?) are as ready as Cam is. Not everyone showed up today- Rod Smith is expected later in the week, after finishing up […]
