Silver Bullet Points To Gold

While camp is in session over at the WHAC, it’s important to remember that in 1936 another Buckeye was rocking the world this week. By this time that year, Jesse Owens had already won three of his four gold medals in the 100 and 200m, as well as the long jump; the fourth would come […]

Silver Bullet Points Gets Apocalyptical

This could quite possibly be the last SBP of… well… forever. The Mayans have spoken… or the Aztecs, I always get them confused. So, of course there’s only one soundtrack for the moment… it’s been a good ride. Buckeye 411 Something Significant- As exciting as this season was, I’d be willing to bet that the […]

Logistics of a Big Ten Superconference – Part 1

The conference expansion discussion is heating up once again. The B1G has taken stabs at both the Big East and the ACC, nabbing academic powerhouses Rutgers, and Maryland to jump to fourteen teams.

Rockets Red Glare, Silver Bullet Points In The Air

A bit of a damper on the July 4th celebration, as Andy Griffith passed away on Tuesday. Since he represented a slice of America for so many folks, it only makes sense that he’d leave us this close to America’s birthday. Buckeye 411 Hall no!! We hope it’s not true, but a number of reports […]

Conference Expansion Looking to Explode

Once the B1G had added Nebraska as their twelth member in the Summer of 2010, the conference expansion discussion found itself quietly simmering in the other room – out of sight, but not entirely out of mind. Every once in a while, not surprisingly, someone has to get up and stir the pot a little. […]

Silver Bullet Points Reads Up

The Week That Were: 11.26.11

Lots of holiday options for this week’s soundtrack, but I’m that guy that thinks Christmas music should be banned until at least December. So, given all of the rumors of this past week and the results from yesterday’s Ohio State game, the R&B genius of Sam And Dave make a return as we give thanks […]

Final Thoughts on Expansion… For Now

It appears that the dust has settled (for the time being) on the crazy expansion frenzy that has gripped the college football world over the past two weeks.
