The Week That Were: 10.30.10

Happy Halloween! As tempting as it is for me to throw a little Western History at you with today’s musical accompaniment, let’s go with something a little more Disney: Following up on our Protestant Reformation reference, let’s jump in with the  goings on over at Ntre Ame. Remember when beating Notre Dame was a significant […]

Video Evidence: Triple Threat

Cole brings this week’s highlights from the Big Ten Player of the Week– Terrelle Pryor. He runs, he throws, he catches… That’s an action figure there, son.

Silver Bullet Points- Beginning of the Big T1e1n’s End

Buckeye 411 Injury Report- Dorian Bell and Travis Howard should be back this week, and Chimdi Chekwa is expected to go on Saturday, even though he’s been hampered by back spasms and so forth.  Jake Stoneburner is still questionable; the high ankle sprain won’t be fully diagnosed until later in the week. Remember when the […]

Buckeyes Thrash Eagles 73-20

In a game that was never remotely close, the Buckeyes handed the Eagles of EMU a 73-20 loss that displayed plenty of offensive flash, and a couple defensive question marks.  Terrelle Pryor was the star of the day with 6 total touchdowns including 4 passing touchdowns to Dane Sanzenbacher (9 rec 108 yards), a 53 […]

Preview: Ohio State vs. Eastern Michigan

Eastern Michigan is bad, really bad. So bad that it is hard to find a place to start describing their ineptitude at playing the game of football. Since I like to focus primarily on Ohio State in these previews, and as readers of this blog, you presumably care primarily about the Buckeyes, I will keep […]

What do you want to see on Saturday? EMU

The game on Saturday will be a little more than a scrimmage for the Buckeyes as they prepare for the Big Ten schedule. It is not the most exciting game for fans, but if anything, the low quality of the opponent increases the expectations. Here are some things that we want to see from the […]

Know your enemy: Eastern Michigan edition

It is I, Ron English. Upon looking up the name of the head coach of Ohio State’s opponent this week, I thought to myself “That name sounds familiar,” but I couldn’t quite remember from where.  Then, upon seeing the picture of Eastern Michigan’s coach coupled with the name, I thought to myself “Wait a second, […]

The Week That Were- 9.18.10

This is being written on September 19th… that’s right, “International Talk Like A Pirate Day“. So, who better to lead us into this weeks’ recap than everyone’s favorite buccaneer, Mike Leach: Of course, to get the full effect of the day, you’ll need to use the Pirate Translator for this webpage. Avast! Speaking of Pirates, […]

"Are we 11-0 already?", updated…..

Three weeks ago, I asked the question “Are we 11-0 already?”. At the time, we were actually 5-0, but were facing a string of 6 consecutive weak opponents. I took criticism and praise for suggesting this. Around The Oval agreed with me immediately, while personal friends claimed I was tempting fate and daring it to […]
