The Week That Were: 2013 Championship Weekend

Look, I know it’s the holiday season and all that, but I’m not feeling it just yet. Here’s some Ella if you’re in a similar mood this Monday. And so it ends… not with a bang, but a whimper. Not for everyone, but for fanbases who entered Saturday with significant postseason aspirations, the doors gently […]

Top 25: The Week in Review & The Week Ahead

Heading into the final week of the season we still do not have a clear cut favorite to win the National Championship.  That, my friends, is exciting news! This past week continued to be just like the many weeks before. There were more Top 25 losses, more new additions, and more shocking developments. This week’s […]

Top 25: The Week in Review & The Week Ahead

The college basketball season is winding down but that doesn’t mean that the excitement is too.  More over time games, more losses, and more surprises continue to be story of the season.  Duke kept the streak of Top 5 teams losing by dropping their game to Maryland.  The Miami Hurricanes continue to turn heads and […]

Top 25: The Week in Review & The Week Ahead

Another amazing week of college basketball is in the books and the season just keeps getting crazier.  There were a total of 18 losses among the Top 25 teams.  Some teams lost multiple times this week and there were some stunning upsets.  The Miami Hurricanes absolutely embarrassed top ranked Duke 90-63, VCU spent a couple […]

Top 25: The Week in Review & The Week Ahead

When it comes to the rankings this year I am reminded of a famous Beatles song.  That song…..”Hello, Goodbye”.  Teams that gain a specific ranking or jump into the Top 25 say “hello” to it just as quickly as they say “goodbye” to it.  This week was no exception as I am still trying to […]

Top 25: The Week in Review & The Week Ahead

Last week when I said we can get this party started, I had no idea the party would be quite like this.  Most conferences opened up conference play (the SEC is a week behind) this past week and it was total mayhem!   The Top 25 teams were all over the place this week.  New Mexico […]

Top 25: The Week in Review and The Week Ahead

Just because there wasn’t a bunch of action this week on the hardwood, doesn’t mean that there wasn’t anything interesting that happened.  Two Top 10 teams fell, one undefeated team dropped their first game, and two new teams were welcomed to the party (Sorry New Mexico, your fall from the Top 25 will keep me […]

Top 25: The Week in Review & The Week Ahead

Even though the week featured many blowouts and easy wins, this week’s Top 25 has many changes to it from the previous week. Two teams dropped out of the polls, including a Top 10 team disappearing from the nation’s top teams. This week’s action also only featured one loss to any of the current Top […]

Top 25: The Week in Review & The Week Ahead

This past week featured some prime time match-ups. It also gave us the Big Ten/ACC Challenge and Big East/SEC Challenge. A major top ten power player loses major ground and the “Mid-Majors” tried to hold their own. This week the Top 25 takes a lighter schedule in hopes to regroup after the previous week’s battle […]

What We Learned From OSU-Duke

I know, I know. Ohio State has only played five games this season, but we learned quite a bit from last night’s 73-68 loss to Duke at Cameron Indoor Stadium. I am not one for moral victories. The bottom line here is that this was a winnable basketball game for the Buckeyes and a lot […]

Duke Outlasts Ohio State 73-68

Participating in the ACC/B1G Challenge, the Buckeyes traveled for their first ever game at Cameron Indoor Stadium against the Duke Blue Devils. The result was the ultimate game of runs as Duke put together a long come-back in the second half to pick up the 73-68 win. DeShaun Thomas finished with only 16 points, his […]

BBN Basketball LiveBlog: Duke

The B1G went 4-2 in the B1G/ACC Challenge last night, and the B1G needs only to go 3-3 tonight for a win. Hopefully one of those wins comes for the Buckeyes as they take on the Duke Blue Devils Joining us as usual – and special thanks to all of them for making these such […]

Pregame Glance: Duke Blue Devils

That favorite time of the year has returned, the annual duel known as the B1G/ACC challenge is upon us! As one of the top teams from last year’s Big Ten season, the Buckeyes redrew the Duke Blue Devils for their matchup. This time, though, the game will be played in the cozy*, friendly*, confines of […]

The Week That Were: 10.20.12

Ah, fall… the wind turns brisk and in Los Angeles the birds turn colors and fall from the trees (ht: David Letterman). We talked last week about “pumpkinitis” that’s sweeping the country… some people are taking it seriously. Instead of subjecting yourself to such a task, take time to kick back with some new tunes […]

tBBC Conference Cavalcade: ACC

As we get closer and closer to kickoff, we’ll be looking across the nation at other (read “inferior”) conferences. This way, you’ll have just enough information to argue with that guy in accounting. Today we take a look at the Atlantic Coast Conference- nope, FSU and Clemson haven’t left yet. Where does the conference fall […]

Silver Bullet Points Hears The Whispers

Buckeye 411 Shower Ends Sweat- This “Duh!” headline actually points to an interesting story Tuesday about why former Buckeye Andrew Sweat chose to end his bid at a professional career. According to the Dispatch, Sweat slipped in the shower the morning that mini-camp was to start and experienced concussive-like symptoms similar to what he wrestled […]
