Wednesday Night Rumble: GAME WEEK!

We did it! We made it! We trudged through the winter, hammered through the spring and waded our way through the majority of summer and we have finally come to it: Football is upon us. While we yearn for the cool fall nights and big time matchups that come with October, November and now December […]

tBBC Kickoff Countdown Celebrates 10

The 2002 season was filled with many close games that came down to the wire but only one of them ended due to a play so spectacular that it earned its own nickname.  On November 9th, 2002, the second ranked Ohio State Buckeyes rolled into West Lafayette to face the Purdue Boilermakers.  Purdue entered the […]

tBBC Kickoff Countdown Celebrates 44

Over the course of its long history, Ohio Stadium has played host to numerous memorable games, many of which have been or will be highlighted as part of our countdown to the 2013 season.  Surprisingly, despite all the major games that happened over the years, it took the stadium until its 81st year of existence […]

tBBC Kickoff Countdown Celebrates 55

In today’s edition, we celebrate number 55, specifically Ohio State’s 31-24 multiple overtime win over the Miami Hurricanes Thugs on January 3rd, 2003 in the (Tostitos) Fiesta Bowl for The National Championship. Nothing mythical about this one.  The double-digit underdog Buckeyes showed a tenacity and athleticism that surprised many (national) collegiate football fans. However, True […]

tBBC Kickoff Countdown Celebrates 56

In today’s edition, we celebrate number 56, specifically Ohio State’s 33-23 win over Michigan State on November 8th, 2003. The defending national champion Buckeyes were enroute to an 11-2 season when they hosted Michigan State Spartans. This game had ‘Jim Tressel’ written all over it. Two of OSU’s TD’s came via passes to the tight […]

DRIVEN Basketball: Marysville High School Benefit

If there’s one thing I have learned officiating two of DRIVEN’s events, it’s that the former Buckeyes involved are just as competitive now as they were when they played. A few are just recently removed from their playing days for the Scarlet and Gray and the others? Well, they all hail from the National Championship Buckeyes and […]

Haters Gonna Hate. Why?

I know that is a very loaded title, but I feel it best suits my current thoughts. I understand the Mark May’s and Desmond Howard’s of the world taking every chance they get to smear the Ohio State University and our transgressions-  they have been waiting for this day for so long.  We have been […]

Craig Krenzel's year of miracles

There was absolutely no doubt about who our honored guest would be for Day #16. The legendary season of 2002 was all we ever needed to see in order to make the name Craig Krenzel a household name throughout the glorious state of Ohio. We could start a poll and try to select a play […]

The glory days of Brandon Schnittker

Brandon Schnittker wasn’t widely known outside of the diehard Buckeye circles. He was a great blocker and when you’re lined up in the same backfield as a freshman RB who has 1,300 yards on the season, you just KNOW you’re not getting the ball very much. So his stats are not going to dominate the […]

Lllloyd Carr skirts the rules of decency, loses

I’ve gotta be honest, I am JUST NOW hearing about this….but apparently, there’s a little bit of drama and a whole lot of “what, I didn’t see anything” coming out of Ann Arbor, Michigan these days. MotSaG has the story down in a nice summary, but here’s a quick lowdown; WR Adrian Arrington was drinking […]

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 […]
